Let’s talk a bit about my blog – Eat Pray Run DC. I started this blog in December of 2011 – it’s initial iteration was prompted by my upcoming 30th birthday (the blog was originally called Project 30 in 2012) – you can read my first post here if you want. I switched gears in March of 2013 and changed my blog name to Eat Pray Run DC and that stuck. So I’ve had this corner of the internet for almost five years. That is a long time in the blogging world and in life. I am a big believe in thinking about where things are going and lately I’ve been thinking about the blog and where it will go over the next five years. Of course, we plan and God laughs, but I do have a few thoughts about the future of Eat Pray Run DC.
First of all, the blog isn’t going anywhere. I love writing and blogging and am planning on continuing to do so indefinitely. Yes, I know we just ended the Friday Five. But that has nothing to do with the future of this blog – and honestly, while it was time to end the Friday Five (3 years of a linkup is a lot!) – I miss it already. 🙂
I plan on continuing to blog about my training and racing and general life. Honestly, I’m not sure what my goals are for this blog but I do love learning more about blogging and social media and I love that this corner of the internet allows me to do that. I also love having a record of my training and my various races. I actually regularly look at my blog to remind me of my times from particular races and the like. How do you non-bloggers track that stuff, haha?
So what can you expect to see here other than training and racing? The occasionally recipe or food related post will still make it’s way here. And honestly, an occasional post about something out of the blue. For example, I’ll be publishing some gift guides for the holiday season and make write some travel posts in the future if I take any fun trips (nothing currently planned but I could see it happening). I view the blog as a lifestyle blog, heavily focused on running and fitness. But I reserve the right to write whatever my little heart desires because #IdowhatIwant. Right?
Thank you all for sticking around and I hope this continues to be a space where you enjoy visiting. I’m always happy to have you.
