the business of blogging

What? A blog post on a Thursday?!

I know, kids. Craziness abounds.

But, like I mentioned on Monday, today I'm doing a guest post over on the blog of my good friend and former classmate, Mama Marchand. It's a more detailed recap of my most recent 5K, a race I spent a lifetime preparing for, so you definitely want to go check it out!

Me, I'm gearing up for a nice loooooong weekend. I get four days off. Because I'm awesome like that. Or, really, because my schedule is, but potayto potahto. Tomorrow I'm hoping to try out a new running spot, similar to last week's location of the Cleveland Metroparks so we shall see how that goes! While that reservation was quite beautiful, the trail was short and I ran a bulk of it in a subdivision. It was kind of strange, running through the woods and then, oh, hi, houses. What is this, The Village?

(Apologies if I just ruined that for anyone. But it's not like I told you Bruce Willis had been dead the whole time. Uh, I mean...)

Clearly I'm feeling a wee bit giddy. Upcoming long weekends will do that for ya.

In other news, check out my new business cards. Aren't they awesome?


I got them through Klout. I've ordered Moo cards before for my Etsy shop, but they are kind of expensive so I was super excited about this perk (I only had to pay shipping). I love how easy they make it to upload your own design, so I was able to use my new logo. And I figured the photo would make it more personable. I'm not always good with remembering names but I do remember faces, so I figured I'd help out those like me in that respect. [Disclaimer: I was given a free product or sample because I'm a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.]

Recently I've decided I want to do something with this blog. What, exactly, I'm not sure. I do know I am not satisfied with this just being words on a screen and I want to start going to some of the conferences next year, like FitBloggin' and maybe Healthy Living Summit. I'm already a FitFluential Ambassador and last night applied to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador. Beyond that I'm making it up as I go along, but I figured business cards were a good place to start.

So! With that, I'm off to finish my work day (hopefully it won't drag on, though I think that's a given). Enjoy the rest of your Thursday and don't forget to read my guest post!

Have any fun plans for the holiday weekend?

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus
