Diet Blogs and Bloggers:
What Are They Thinking?

Diet blogs are popping up everywhere

I'll admit it: when I got my degree in nutrition, no one told us to tell people to blog about their weight loss efforts on the internet. There barely was an internet!

I am fascinated by the whole phenomenon, and I'm eager to better understand it. Maybe you are too.

That's why I'm asking people who are active diet bloggers to tell me (and you) all about it.

  • What were they thinking when they decided to do it?
  • Is it helping them with their weight loss goals?
  • How exactly did they go about it? What's involved?
  • Have there been any benefits they didn't expect?

Maybe we'll find out that you should be keeping one too!
