Hi Patricia. Yes, I do have my own blog. Since a great deal of my practice is with female athletes, I post copies of my articles, current research findings on sports conditioning, exercise advice related to sports conditioning for female athletes, and any “notices” of my coming events (such as special clinics or classes I am planning to teach, or other points of interest for females involved in sports).
I have started using a blog for the first time in the framework of IDEA and now have a second one which is outside of IDEA but the content is the same as in IDEA. Prior to that, I had written for the blog of the facility with which I have an association.
I am very mindful of the fact that once ‘stuff’ is on the internet, it is in the public domain and represents me. My blogposts are related to my job as a personal trainer, and I make an effort to let people see ‘me’ as a person in it.
To be perfectly honest, I am ever so surprised when I see in my statistics that somebody actually takes the time to read it 🙂 I am very grateful to those readers.
I just started my blog, with FitnessConnect. It’s great to see that people actually read it:) It can be fun and demanding (my last post was early July!)
I write about stuff I think fitness professionals have in common i.e., our client relationships, why we got into the industry, etc…I don’t have a plan; whatever inspires me….
