Sunday Social

1.  How did you come up with your blog name? 
When I first blogged, my blog name was easy---I used the name I used for all of my forums and such: Mom2Ways.  Because I am a mom by birth AND adoption.

When I started the weight loss journey in January, I wanted something that would reflect my goal.  I tried several before I came up with one that was available on Blogger.  My goal is to lose half my starting weight---or half a Julie.

2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Having a place to chronicle my journey.  Meeting new people along the way.  

3. What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can't live without? 
My Yonanas machine.  Seriously, I have a frozen banana treat almost every day!  Also,, Earndit, and Achievemint that all give me free stuff for the exercise I'm doing anyway!  You can find links to these sites at my "Find me on the Web" page at the top.

4. Facebook or Twitter? and why? 
Facebook.  Honestly, I still don't "get" Twitter!  I've been on for many years, and I even have a lot of followers.  But mostly I just use it for contest entries.

5. If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be? 
Hmm....Tough one.  Someone famous who has lost a lot of weight: Mandisa? Any of the Biggest Loser contestants?  I'm not picky!

6. What is something you want people to know about your blog?
I blog around my life.  There will be times I blog every day (or even multiple times a day.  There will be other times I go a week without blogging.  But I will never start a post with, "I'm sorry I haven't blogged in x days....".  Because I refuse to allow my blog to overwhelm me.  Been there. Done that. Left blogging for 2 years.  I got to where I was blogging because I "had" to (promised product reviews, book reviews, posting givewaways, etc.)  I was no longer enjoying blogging.  (And neither was my family.)  I will blog as often as I have something to say and the time to say it.  And, if offered reviews, I will only do ones that are related to my theme (getting healthy) and fit my timeline.


  1. I agree on your #2 answer :)


  2. I never warmed up to twitter either. I think it's all those unnecessary hashtags. :) Thanks for the links to the fun sites. I hadn't heard of any of those!

  3. Just found your blog!!
    So excited I did!
    Now following.
    Looking forward to getting to know you and keeping up.



Thanks for your support on this journey. Please be nice (to me and to other commenters).
