Fitbloggin‘ World Meetup Day

Posted by terrepruitt on July 23, 2011

July 9, 2011 was Fitbloggin’ World Meetup Day.  I had heard of Fitbloggin’ when I was asked if Nia could be there next year.  I hadn’t heard of it before or that I could remember.  When I was looking for Nia people online (a few years) I found Foodie McBody on Twitter, I think.  She posted a blog post about Nia.  I was so excited that she had posted about Nia that I commented on her post and we starting talking a bit.  I hadn’t realized when I first read her post that she is not too far from me.  I think that is how it happened.  I am not sure anymore, all the social media sites get blurred as I connect with more people on more than one site.  But I did actually meet her briefly at a Nia Jam.  And now we keep in contact via Twitter, Blogs, and FaceBook.  So she was the one who asked me if Nia would be represented at the next Fitbloggin’ Conference.  I will have to look into that.  In the meantime the Fitbloggin’ community decided to have a  World Meetup Day where Fitbloggin’ bloggers would meet in different locations all over the world.  I think that is cool.  Foodie volunteered to do it at her residence and she asked if I would attend and do a Nia demo.

Of course I wanted to learn more about Fitbloggin’ and, of course I wanted to introduce Nia to a group of Fitness people.  So I went.  There was a walk, a lunch, a talk, and a Nia demo.  When I got in my car to go there I was confident I could get there just fine.  Well, I didn’t get there just fine.  I was later than I wanted to be.  I made it for the end of lunch and the talk.  The talk was awesome.  Danica of Danica’s Daily shared information about how to monetize your blog.  She talked about some fabulous tricks and tips.  It was awesome.

She talked about tags, SEO, advertisements that you place on your site to get paid on, placement of things, colors, text, hosting, non-hosting, names, logos, content, and a lot more.  Believe it or not she covered all that in an hour.  It was very interesting.

A handful of people actually stayed for the Nia demo.  We were not planning on doing an entire Nia Routine, we did a few songs.  As often is the case with Nia the participants were surprised they worked up — or almost worked up a sweat.  When you do an entire routine there is definitely a chance to work up a sweat.  It all depends on what you put into it.  Just like your blog.  There are so many things that you can do with a blog it really depends on what you put into it.  We received a lot of great information that day so we can take it from there.

I am thankful to Foodie for inviting me and letting me share Nia with the Fitbloggers.  Originally the group was going to be much bigger, but things came up.  It still was a great turn out and I was happy to meet all that attending.  Thank you, Foodie, I appreciate it!  I was happy to have a glimpse into the Fitbloggin’ community.

  1. It was so awesome that you were able to give Fitbloggin’ folks a taste of Nia! And I really do hope that Nia comes to Fitbloggin 2012 (the BIG one) – they have to give Zumba a run for their money!!


    • Yay! Foodie’s on my blog!

      I think it was awesome too, so thank you for asking me. I was happy that the Fitbloggers that stayed like it. What’s not to like? 🙂 Thank you again for the opportunity.

      I am going to miss you tomorrow at the Nia Jam, but I know you have training to do. Wahoo! What a great way to end your busy came week, huh? From mental exercise to physical — no break in between! WOW! YOU GO FOODIE!!!!!! I am glad your camp week went well. Next year when then want to do the Jam I am going to say, “No! We cannot have another Nia Jam that coincides with Foodie’s camp because we need Foodie to come!”

    I first learned about Foodie McBody from your blog! Both of you always have great info to share. I love the photo you posted and I’m delighted that you were able to share Nia with the folks who attended this event! You’re AWESOME!


    • Yay. I am glad you learned about Foodie from me. Love to connect great people!

      I love that word; delighted. I need to use it. I was delighted too. I get happy if I can just tell one more person about Nia. It is not as well know as a lot of other exercises and workouts so I delight in share about it!

      I’m off to teach in a Nia Jam!!!
