Sunday Social

1. What is the name of your blog?
Goal Minded Girl

2. What do you love most about blogging?
I like being able to just write freely.  I like the design aspect.  I also like meeting new people that I would have never had the privilege of meeting if it hadn't been for starting my blog.

3. Why did you start blogging?
I wanted to try something new.  I also wanted a way to keep up with my weight loss story.  Then my perspective changed and I started thinking about ways that I could encourage others.  Now whether or not I have succeeded in that...I don't know :)

4. What is something you’d want to tell someone just starting out in the blog world?
Just be yourself.  Don't compare yourself to others when it comes to writing styles and things like that.  Just go for it.  And make sure you are blogging for you first or you'll get burnt out and won't have much of a reason to continue.

5. Biggest blogging learning experience you’ve had?
Umm.  Don't expect comments unless you actually participate on others blogs and in social groups, etc.  I guess that's the biggest thing I've learned.  I've learned that I may not be the best writer, eloquent or funny but that writing helps me to process things in my mind and I enjoy that.

6. What are three blogs you love?
Only 3??  lol ok...well I guess the below are my top 3.  I seem to go through different spurts of what blogs I read.  I already posted 3 of my favorite VSG blogs on my last blog post.  Here are a few that I find inspiration in other ways.


  1. Hi Melissa, you are a very wise blogger. It takes some people years to learn the things you know. I look forward to following you and growing with you.
