I love to eat real food. I think that is perfectly evidenced on my blog where I rarely use low-fat substitutes or talk about nutrition. I bake with whole wheat, but I also use real butter and I’m not shy about my love for dessert. I embrace my curves. I don’t feel guilty about loving […]

Shed New Light on Your Blog Photos

by Meredith on March 9, 2011 · 10 comments

I am not a great photographer. Most of what I’ve learned has come from Googling my DSLR and playing with buttons. However, you may have noticed that some blogs out there have professional-grade photography and this has created a lot of pressure to invest in fancy cameras, lenses, and photography equipment. Bloggers have even hosted […]

When a blogger posts a negative experience on her blog — fitness woes, weight problems, or just life issues — it tends to be just that: negative. The readers want to show sympathy so they lament along with the blogger and together they turn a white girl problem into a bit of a catastrophe. While […]

I haven’t even been blogging publicly for a whole year — in fact, Thanksgiving 2009 is when I first started food journaling in a private blog. But here I am now, a big-girl blogger with sponsors and all. And what have I learned? When I first started blogging, I wish I had known not to […]

Rich Blog, Poor Blog

Today’s post comes from a reader’s question! She writes… I’ve been reading since day one and love what you guys do. I have a post idea to throw out there….lately I’ve been finding myself being really turned off by bloggers who flaunt a high level of wealth. If you’re wealthy, that’s cool — it’s no […]

If you didn’t know, I’m kind of a baby in the blog world. And I don’t mean that my blog isn’t even a year old, but I mean that I’m younger than most bloggers. You should never ask a lady her age, but in the spirit of owning it, I’ll lay it out there: I’m […]

by Meredith on August 2, 2010 · 2 comments

Did you know your blog is an investment?? Well it is! Every time you write a new post, tweak your “About me” section, or take a picture you are investing in your blog. I certainly didn’t realize what I was getting myself into when I started my blog and what an investment it was. Whether […]

I have a BA in Latin American & Iberian Studies (i.e. Spanish) and am going to graduate school for a doctorate in Hispanic literature. I also speak Portuguese and French. […]
