8021696175 ae0ee5ae8c Blogging in Baltimore! A Fitbloggin Recap Part I This weekend I had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people in the fitness blogging community at Fitbloggin ’12!  If you’ve been following me, you may remember hearing about the event.  Going into the conference on Thursday, I had NO IDEA what to expect, but I knew it was going to be a blast.  After finding some awesome roomies via Twitter, Amanda and Taylor, I had the awesome opportunity to spend the drive down (and back) with Amanda since we live relatively close to each other.  As soon as I met Amanda, as well as so many of the fitness bloggers over the weekend, I felt like we clicked.  It felt great to be able to discuss my favorite topics with others that have the same passion.

These girls are the sweetest and are both great at what they do! So go check them out :).

Feeling ready to absorb all the information we could over the weekend, we all attended some great sessions discussing topics such as YouTube, integration of social media with blogs, and SEO tips.  Honestly, my favorite had to be the YouTube session since that is a weakness of mine – but you will be seeing some videos up shortly once I get the hang of it ;).

And who doesn’t love the SWAG?!

I really enjoyed using the RealFlex sneakers for the Crossfit demonstration we participated in at the conference – which I surprisingly liked!  My body ached the next day which is ALWAYS a good sign!

Of course, PopChips was also a sponsor of the event this year, so the snacks were EVERYWHERE! They are definitely a great treat to bring to work or if you’re on the go. Here are some of the other freebies we got!

This was probably my favorite top to receive!  It is from Puravit Body and is so cozy!  Not to mention cute.  plus, they gave us blender bottles (can never have enough) and a reusable bag.

Great recap! There was so much packed into one little weekend, it was difficult deciding what to include and what not to. SO glad we could meet! Hopefully we’ll be moving back to the northeast next year, and maybe we can reunite the PA bloggers at a race! :)
