Comment Contest Tuesday: Challenge Go Fit Girl!

I was thinking about this month’s Monthly Challenge and how I am not super jazzed about it. And based on the participation and minimal updates I am guessing GFG! readers feel the same way.

It’s difficult to come up with exciting challenges for exercise and nutrition every single month, which I have been doing for nine months now. Sometimes the ideas are great and sometimes they are just OK.

(My favorite so far has been going old school with hula hooping, jumping rope and jumping jacks, which was April’s Go Fit Girl! Monthly Challenge.)

So I am coming to my wonderful readers and asking you to give me ideas. What kind of challenges do you want? Do you want to challenge others? Or challenge yourself?

And to make this more fun, let’s make it a Comment Contest Tuesday.

For every idea you post in the comments below you will get your name thrown into a hat for a drawing. So the more you comment, the better chance you get to win a prize. Please make sure to come up with both exercise and nutrition ideas.

Are you inspired by Go Fit Girl!?

Recently I debated if I should keep up with the Go Fit Girl! blog. It’s a decent amount of work. I consider it my second job, which I don’t get paid for, and it is rather time-consuming.

I do enjoy maintaining it and doing the research and learning things and sharing it all with my readers. But I had started to wonder if it was worth it.

I love getting comments. But I rarely get them.

Occasionally I hold something called Comment Contest Tuesday to generate comments and get my readers more involved. But I have to say it is like pulling teeth to get people to comment. And with Comment Contest Tuesday my readers have a chance to win a prize. Seems pretty easy to me.

When you comment you have to give your name and e-mail address. Only your name is published. And it doesn’t have to be your full name or your real name.

The reason you have to fill in your e-mail is to help eliminate spammers. I won’t ever share your e-mail. And the only time I use it is to alert you that you won the random drawing for Comment Contest Tuesday and to … Continue reading

Go Fit Girl! wants to hear from her readers

I have asked my readers what they think of the new look of the blog. And I haven’t gotten a lot of responses.

I know bribery works. So let’s have a Comment Contest Tuesday to get the comments flowing.

Tell me what you like about the new look, maybe things you don’t like. Was there anything about the old look you preferred? What do you think about being able to sign in to Go Fit Girl! with your Facebook, Twitter, etc. accounts? Does the site seem to be running faster than before?

This is a great time to ask me any content questions as well. Feel free.

OK, here are all the rules for this week’s Comment Contest Tuesday. You can comment as much as you want.

Each comment in its own post will get your name thrown into the random drawing twice.

To participate in Comment Contest Tuesday you must submit your answers in the comments below. The comment has to be relevant to what I ask or mention above.

Comments via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc. don’t count. You have until Friday, April 27, noon my time to comment away.

And the Go Fit Girl! winner is …

… Jessica.

Thank you to everyone for the awesome and great comments for the latest Comment Contest Tuesday. I really enjoyed reading them. And from what it seems you all enjoyed writing them.

I am very intrigued by the comfier yet still stylish heels that were mentioned numerous times. I plan on looking into them.

I really want to thank you all for your comments. It shows your support to Go Fit Girl!

I work hard to write intriguing stuff. And many of my posts take hours to write when you include the research I do.

I consider this blog to be “my other job,” which I don’t get paid for. Man, I wish I did.

Maybe one day my blog will get enough ad revenue that I can quit my day job and just devote myself to Go Fit Girl! But for now I will just fit it in when I can (and get up at 5 a.m. for the job that makes me the real bucks).

You are all Go Fit Girls! YEA!!!! Woot-woot!

Now you take a crack at it …

Today I am posting a twist to Guest Post Tuesday: Comment Contest Tuesday.

It is your turn to be a Go Fit Girl! or Go Fit Boy! for a comment. You don’t even have to write a guest post.

Your comment can be simple or complex. For example: I love ice cream!; I have abs of steel!; I want abs of steel; My morning workout and breakfast routine include …

You must comment in the comments below with at least your first name. (E-mails to me or comments on my personal blog, Facebook, etc. don’t count.) You can comment as much as you want, but you will only be entered into the contest once. If you win and I don’t have your e-mail address you will need to send it to me after the winner is announced.

You have from right now until noon Thursday. The winner will be announced Friday.

And just to let you know, Guest Post Tuesday will return in October (hopefully) after I return from my European vacation.
