She's been blogging for several years at Roni's Weigh and Green Lite Bites and has really built a huge following. I think Roni's way of blogging, accepting a few ads but really being authentic and true to her readers has helped her to turn her blogging into a business. She got into it after she lost weight with Weight Watchers but wanted to become more healthy in her eating.
Today, she hit a major milestone.
After losing 70 pounds and keeping it off for several years, today she is running the Baltimore Marathon! As I type this, she just completed 11.5 miles of the 26.2 run.
It's really cool to follow her live on TwitPic after all the training and effort she's done to get ready for this.
Although her blog has a lot of information about food and staying fit, there's some great career points on there too.
Here she is at mile 12.
