A Word From Your Blogger…

by Rachel on October 7, 2011

Check it — right after we made our fabulous comeback, Hollaback Health was nominated for a Best Blogger Award from Shape Magazine!

Part of what we love about this blog is the tight-knit community of writers, and the way they don’t shy away from the important issues such as the role, both positive and negative, that bloggers play in the healthy-living community.

Can I say it’s an honor just to be nominated? Because it is! Honestly, most of the time when healthy living bloggers are recognized by national women’s magazines, it’s bloggers who stick with the status quo and, frankly, kiss ass. I don’t, Hollaback doesn’t, and, as a result, I feel like we tend to go unnoticed. I think it’s pretty sweet that SHAPE , you know…gets it. I’ve taken a lot of shit for Hollaback over the past 18 months and it’s nice to feel like people are seeing that we’re trying to do something good for the community. And the fact that we’re nominated alongside some of the very bloggers who have been giving us so much shit isn’t lost on me; it kinda makes the whole thing more fun!

Anyway, read what SHAPE had to say about us and then — if you like us — vote for us! (No login/signup necessary.)

Congratulations on the nomination. I think one of the reason for this is the readers sense a lot of confidence in you. I like the attitude and keep up the good work. You rock.
