Blog ideas...?

I'm thinking of adding some more features to my blog.

One thing that I find is lacking in the healthy living blogging world is information about quitting smoking. When I was considering quitting smoking, I would have loved to see some more information about this from fellow foodies! (Did I really just call myself a foodie? Wow...)

So, I will be adding a page with "Tips for Quitting Smoking" just as soon as I get the time to do it! I think that while there is a lot of information about it out there, there is less information about how to quit while also losing weight. Many people (myself included) are terrified that if they quit smoking, they will quit losing weight, and may actually gain weight! It's just not true (doesn't have to be, anyway), and I think that a page of "quitting tips" on a Weight Loss/Healthy Living blog like mine may help some people. What do you think?

I'm also considering adding a page for WW tips specific to the Simply Filling Technique, but I'm still pretty new at it, so that may come a bit later.

Another idea that has been flitting around in my head is that I would love to share more pictures of my meals and snacks with you guys! I would never be able to commit to doing this daily, but what about weekly? What if I photograph all of my food every Tuesday? Something I'm thinking about... If I decided to go for it, be sure and check in tomorrow for the new feature.


I also am planning to start sharing my measurements on here monthly, along with a basic workout schedule for the month.

And: Is anyone interested in my life outside of food and exercise? If so, I am considering doing a weekly update: life edition on here! Or should I just keep this blog for food and exercise? What do you think? I would never get too personal, political, or religious on here. Just basic life updates (like tonight I'm going to a Memphis Grizzlies game with my boyfriend and his two kids! Is that something that you'd like to read about? Etc...)

I'm excited about these new ideas that I have, and I hope that you will enjoy reading them as much as I'll enjoy writing them!

Please leave any comments/advice/feedback in the comments section. I'm really interested in changing things up a bit on here, and would love to know what you think!

I hope that all of you are having wonderful Mondays!!!

I think you should tell us about all of the above! I would love to hear about whatever you feel like sharing. I also love looking at pictures of peoples foods because it gives me ideas of what to do for myself.

The weekly update about your life is a great idea!
Also great idea about sharing your quit smoking tips...I quit smoking May 2008 and started WW July 2008 because I could not afford to put on any more weight with another quit attempt since I had tried quitting many times before and every time I would gain another 5-10 pounds!
