Blogger Interview Series – Heather
Hello friends!! Well, I am probably in Calgary right now, hanging out with my gal Holly, eating our way through Cowtown. Since I will be gone for a week, with limited access to the internet (sorry, no updates from the mountains! :P ) I’ve enlisted the help of fellow bloggie friends to hold down fort.
I started reading Heather Eats Almond Butter waaaay back when I began blogging in January 2009. Heather has maintained a significant weight loss for several years. She’s always experimenting to find a way of eating suits her. I love being able to see raw-vegan goodies followed by a slab of bacon all in the same post. Oh, and she loves to ferment things using her Costco heat dish. Smells wonderful, I’m sure. ;)
Another reason why I love Heather’s blog is that she used to be one of those people who was run-run-running all the time. Until she found yoga and fell in love. Now instead of running herself into the pavement every day, she finds peace and exercise through yoga and walking. An always friendly reminder that we don’t need to kill ourselves at the gym to be fit and healthy :)
1. Quick! Describe your blog in 6 words!
Lose weight and keep it off...hehe, that sounds like a weight loss drug advertisement.
2. How did you come up with your blog name?
Throughout my journey over the last 10 years, I’ve never feared fat. Nut butter has always been my friend, and I wanted others out there to know that they shouldn’t fear their fats either.
3. What attracted you to blogging?
When I began reading food and fitness blogs, I couldn’t find many written by people who had lost an extreme amount of weight through diet and exercise alone. So, I started my own.
4. What surprised you about blogging?
The friendships I have made – such an amazing community!
5. What do you do for content ideas?
I never plan ahead. Just wake up and start writing about my breakfast I ate that morning or something that happened the day before.
6. Blogging is a big time commitment – what makes it worth it to you?
Oh my gosh, the comments and emails I get everyday totally make it worth it. We’re helping more people than we know!
7. What hobbies did you have before you started blogging?
I used to read those things – what were they called. They had a lot of words…oh yeah, books. ;)
8. What is one secret you’ve thus far conveniently kept off your blog?
I’m scared of the dark – like petrified. Too may horror movies growing up.
9. What do your friends and family think of your blogging habits?
They are nothing but supportive and very proud.
10. What other blogger inspires you?
Are you kidding? Too may to list.
Thank you Heather!! Now, we all know Heather’s nut butter of choice is almond, but what about you? What’s your favourite kind of nut butter? What do you like to eat it on? Mine will always be crunchy PB on whole wheat bread with honey :)
