HealthMinder Day Interviews: How Do You Handle Flack?

This week, I thought I would ask our HealthMinder Day speakers a question that I've always wondered about those who write in the nutrition, exercise and fitness genres. I have avoided putting myself out there with new fitness or weight loss goals on my own blogs because I don't want people to poke at me if I should happen to fail (which I'm really good at when it comes to this topic). So I asked a few of our speakers this question: Have you ever taken flack for health or fitness decisions (example, eating a second piece of cake or taking time off from exercising) when people find out your blogging niche? How do you deal with their comments? ...more

BlogHer '12 Interviews: What Did You Learn at a Previous BlogHer?

We're one more week closer to BlogHer '12 in New York City this August. As everyone starts to prepare for their trip, I thought it would be a good idea to ask a few of our speakers what attendees might learn, experience or expect at the conference. I think that's always a big worry for those newbies coming to a conference, so who better than to ask than previous attendees who are speaking this year. My question was: Tell us something interesting or surprising you learned at a previous BlogHer conference....more
