Plugging Away - September Blog Challenge

Friday, September 26, 2014

Oh man, of course I fell off the wagon with this September Challenge, but here I am entertaining you with a few more posts in the 5 remaining days of the month I have. There are lots of posts on this challenge like “outfit of the day” and “make-up less Monday” or the “thoughtful Thursday.” But I’m going to spare you on my sub par fashion sense and save your eyes for the no make up (even though I don’t wear heavy makeup to begin with!!) I picked topics I think are pretty interesting and sharing my thoughts on them. So here we go!

Top Guilty Pleasure

Favorite Things About Blogging
I’ve been seriously blogging since 2011. A lot of it was sparked from when I worked at The Reporter newspaper as an entertainment writer and I used it as a source to provide fun/interesting/factual information and stories to our readers. It’s amusing to go back to my original blogs and see what my content was like and what it included. And to be honest, the blogger that I am nearly 4 years later is pretty much the SAME person – writing to inspire, entertain and educate all of my followers on an array of topics. While my writing skills are more sharp and posts are way more detailed, it’s the same concept today! I love to be creative, personal and informative, but my favorite thing about blogging is that I get to write! I get to be me – there is no hiding here. It’s raw, it’s real, it’s Amanda. It’s my freedom of speech each and every day whether no one reads my post or 500 people read my post. I get whatever I'd like off my chest. All bloggers should have the liberty to feel alive and themselves when writing. It’s what writing is all about – being YOU!

Link Love
MY FELLOW RUNNERS: Meet Sarah Dudek - Certified running coach, personal trainer and
athletic coach. I’m obsessed with her blogs whether it is running tips, healthy eating or brutally honest posts about runner issues like pooping and chafing. She’s a must follow. Don't forget to follow her on Facebook and Twitter as well.

PR/MARKETING PROFESSIONAL: Meet Jessica Lawlor – she works in public relations promoting Bucks County and during the early mornings, nights and weekends she runs her blog ‘Get Gutsy,’ while also writing for several publications and websites, leading group lectures, being the president of organizations and much much more. Wow, I’m exhausted typing that. Learn all about her on her blog and be sure to follow her on Twitter for some of the best advice!

FOR FUNNIES: I love BuzzFeed – I love everything about it. The videos, the photos, the quizzes…it’s ridiculous and I love it. The End.

Songs You Currently Have On Repeat
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that the following three songs are on repeat all day at work (sorry
Theresa) and my entire car ride (sorry Taylor.) I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do. :)

Twenty One Pilots – Guns For Hands (oooobbbbbsessed right now!!!)
Lovers On The Sun – David Guetta, Sam Martin
Crazy Girl – Eli Young Band
