The Real Go Fit Girl!

As a yoga teacher, an indoor cycling instructor and a health and fitness blogger I try to reach the biggest audience I can.

Besides with actually teaching and blogging I try to keep up with the kids (and the rest of us) with social media. (I can’t possibly understand all the social media out there, such as Snapchat. If you don’t know what that is, you can look it up.)

Go Fit Girl! has been on Facebook for years and Twitter for years as well. I just recently revived my personal Instagram account and changed my username to TheRealGoFitGirl.

There are a lot of Go Fit Girls on Instagram, but I am the only real one.

I first signed up for Instagram before it was cool. The app had cool filters and I was just fooling around with them, back in December 2010.

I decided recently that GFG! should be on Instagram, especially since social media can link up to each other.

After I added a photo and updated my profile I started looking through my contacts and Facebook friends to see who else was on Instagram.

Before reviving my account was I the only one NOT on Instagram?

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! is gettin fancy

Go Fit Girl! is getting high-tech. And really, it is all owed to my well-paid (ha ha!) IT/webmaster “online boy.”

Curt got Go Fit Girl! a new hosting service, a new look and we are getting fancy. You can now comment on the blog using your sign on for Facebook, Twitter, etc. Pretty awesome.

Take a look around, comment. Let me know what you think: what you like, don’t like, etc. If you are having issues commenting please let me know via e-mail ann@gofitgirl.com or even via Facebook.

We are still tinkering with it. It will eventually be where we want it to be.

I know I haven’t been blogging as much lately. But don’t fear. I have lots of ideas brewing in my head and lots of things I want to write about, research and explore. So keep coming back.

In the transition of moving the blog from one hosting service to another two of my posts dropped off. Bummer.

Because they were genius (ha! yea, right) I thought I would summarize them here for you.

The first post was about how I went 47 days without eating candy. My co-worker Jessica gave up candy for Lent. As … Continue reading
