Timehop popped up with this for me today:
I can’t believe that I’ve had this little piece of internet space for two full years! Admittedly, my little blog hasn’t grown like I hoped it would — but now that I know how much work it takes to make a blog grow, I’m completely fine with keeping mine little. Putting in the necessary time and effort for a bigger and better blog just isn’t high on my list of priorities right now.
That said, between the training recaps and the fluff, I have written a few decent posts over the last two years, so today, we’re taking a look back at some of my favorites, starting with the oldest. If you missed them the first time (or are wasting time at work and want to read them again… no judgment), enjoy!
7 Simple Rules for Driving Where I Run. Evidently, no one read this one the first time, because I still have these issues with drivers.
Farewell, Old Friend. Because I’m amused by myself.
Life Lessons Learned from Marathoning. This was one of my most popular (read: still not very popular) early posts.
How to Shop Healthy When You Have to Shop Wal-Mart. Because Wal-Mart still sucks.
A Letter to My 16-Year-Old Self. I still wish I could send this to the past.
“You Smell Like Vacation.” One of the more creative things I’ve written. Some of the pictures don’t show up now, and I’m too lazy to fix them, but the words are still there.
Treat Your Marriage Like a Running Injury. I’m still not a marriage expert, but as we head toward our seventh anniversary (Sunday!) this advice is as applicable as ever.
Dear Americans: Stop Being Ignorant about Your Food. This was probably the most popular post I’ve written to date (it got, like, 4 shares!), and I believe it’s a message a LOT of people need to hear.
Readers: As this little blog enters year 3, what types of posts would you like to see more (or less) of? Any topics you want me to address?
In the comments, link to a favorite post from YOUR blog!

Happy 2 years! I think my blog turned 4 back in April. This is one of my most read posts http://www.christyruns.com/2013/09/no-excuses-8-tips-for-running-in-windy.html
Actually my Hood To Coast Post is, but I think that one gets hits from spam or something because it has way more hits than anything like 10,000 more than the next most popular one of all time. but here it is http://www.christyruns.com/2012/08/the-hood-to-coast-post.html
I’ve read your windy tips one. I love it because it’s ALWAYS windy here! And I’m headed over now to read the Hood to Coast one, because that relay is on my bucket list!
I totally hear you on the work it takes to grow a blog. I, too, am pretty comfortable with staying where I am. Happy Blog Anniversary! I, for one, am very thankful to have found your blog this year!
Happy Two Years! I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation!
