I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Proposal: Fat Blogger Support Group/Forum?


It’s no easy task, blogging. This blog your eyes are focused on at the moment? It’s a labor of love. It’s a lot of work, but I get so much out of it! I don’t get anything in the way of payment or anything of that nature. However, in the love and support department? I get a lot!

If you’ve never been a blogger, you may not realize this, it can be tough to come up with new content on a daily or even weekly basis. Some bloggers are far more organized than myself and may have many several drafts of possible posts or even a filing or notebook system to rely upon when unsure what to post about on a given day. I have my better moments, but in general, I write from the heart and the gut. I write about what I am passionate about. This changes from day to day, but in the end, I’m a fat gal with an opinion to share. I am fortunate enough to have readers who continue to dazzle me by coming back! Thank you!

I would like to propose a Fat Blogging Support Community/Forum of some sort. I’m thinking of some sort of space for fellow fat bloggers to bounce ideas/drafts off of when they are having one of those “uhhh…what to post?” sort of days. Or to guest post when there’s nothing left in the old noggin. For those of us who podcast as well, a great resource for tech tips, help and such. I’m thinking right now that a Facebook group would do the trick. Just not sure how to go about getting the word out and making it all happen. I created the group on FB, but for now it’s closed/secret. If you’d like to be added, please let me know.

Are you a fat blogger? Does this sound like something you’d use? What would you most like to use it for? Hit me up! I seriously just sort of thought of this and am still mulling it over a bit.

Are you a fat blog reader? What do you like to read about? Anything you feel is lacking in FA blogs? More of something? Less? Tell me about it!

    Sigh. Does this mean I’m going to have to break down and get a Facebook account? I’ve been avoiding doing that.

    BTW, you might want to check out Crafty Manolo tomorrow morning. I think you will find the subject… interesting. And yes, I’m shamelessly promoting my blog (and not even the FA one!) on your blog. Forgive me, dearie?

    You don’t have to at all, it’s completely voluntary! But if you’re interested in what the group may bring? You can just sign up as Twistie and not worry about family things and high school people at all. That’s why I use the name I do online. Ha!
    And seriously? My forgiveness is yours! No worries at all. Can’t wait! <3
