  2. Congratulations Joi on your nominations. Your blog has really taken off to have only started blogging in December. That is a testament to your content and dedication to achieve the goals for Rx Fitness Lady (read you reply to my last question re: goal). On another note, I must read about your blogging pet peeve…just know that I’m laughing and nodding in agreement already! Ha!
    Andrea recently posted…Kegel Exercises Won’t Prevent InfidelityMy Profile

    • Thanks Andrea! I appreciate you and everyone for coming thru on a regular. I love be quoted way with words…you make me think! You figured out that problem to solve yet? Lol

  3. Oh I have to accept my nomination still from Michelle at Dish of Daily Life! I feel like a buffoon for not doing so yet but I’ve had a lot on my plate. I will do it. I love the connections of blogging too. I used to post on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays but lately I do Monday, Wednesday, Friday more often. I think I look to you all SITS girls as mentors, although not formally of course. Yet..
    Tamara recently posted…Might As Well Jump.My Profile

    • Tamara, I wouldn’t feel too much pressure to respond. I think it’s kinda of understood that its a nice gesture but you don’t have to keep it going, in fact I was emailed that very statement.

  4. Fabulous! Love how you did this post. Finding more in common with you. Same favorite color and same favorite TV shows. James Patterson and Sidney Sheldon are two of my favorite authors also. And I’m publishing my novel as an e-book! Congratulations on all the Liebster Awards. Well deserved, my friend. Kudos to you for all you do in a day’s time.
    Kimberly H. Smith recently posted…Are You Sure You Want Me To Answer That?My Profile

    • Just a baby in the game Michelle but I do appreciate your kind words! I’m looking forward to your creativity, you were on fire last month posting everyday!

  5. Congrats girl loved reading about you. I need a mentor especially since my mother passed I would love for an older person to give me some guidance. Blogging is great for connections the main reason I do it. I love meeting people from all over just from blogging.
    Kita recently posted…Zaxbys is going downMy Profile

    • Thanks Kita! Yeah, I have a mentor for everything, not sure why I didn’t specifically try to establish one for blogging. Maybe I’ll add that to my to do list for the mini challenge.

  6. I remember when I was a young blogger, I reached out to several people (whom I frequently chatted with on social media) to ask for advice. Sent them emails for advice. Both never responded. In retrospect, I can now understand firsthand that they were very busy, but to never receive a response still made me feel crappy. We have to hold up our community. Help and teach one another. It’s the right way.

    Adventures in Babysitting. heeeeeeee 😉
    Yum Yucky recently posted…I found this under a bridgeMy Profile

    • Josie, I think that’s why I’m Leary of asking for mentors because they don’t even respond to comments. I will think on my approach to obtaining a mentor. Most want to charge and I understand that.

    • Thx ladies! I appreciate you showing love especially being that you all are so busy being grand 🙂

  7. Love your approach to the award! Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my faves! I wish I could check my email all day but the job doesn’t allow it. I get behind on my blog reading because of that.

    Congrats on the awards!
    Carli recently posted…Get Abs Like RihannaMy Profile

    • Thanks Carli! I need to clean out some contributors to the kaos in my email. I really don’t need all that junk coming there. It’s an unnecessary headache.

  8. Love it Joi!!!!! My Superhero!!!!! When asked that question you should’ve just said You!!!! But your my fav superhero!!!! So proud of you and everything that you are doing!!! You keep me motivated without a doubt and I’m so glad that you share the real with the world!!!!! Stay Encouraged and Motivated to Be Who God has destined you to be through an open heart and an open mind you are well on your way to more victories!!!!!!

    Much Love,

  9. Wow Joi! This is great. I love that you broke the rules. It definitely added some Although answering the questions helps us to get to know you even better. I can’t stand having to proof me post after writing, reading and re reading. I’m working on an e book also. It was partially one of the reasons i started logging. Didn’t realize I had repeat questions although I peeped other peoples questions in an effort to not ask the same ones. (I hope I used ‘peep’

    Definitely looking forward to your Tuesday Link up
    Hope recently posted…What do you call your MOTHER?My Profile

    • YES! You used it right my friend, lol! Another something for me to get in your inbox about…YAY to the ebook!

  10. I love all of your movie pics! We could totally do a pizza movie night some time.haha And I agree with you about being a lady and acting accordingly. Growing up my mama always said that people will treat you the way you act so be a lady. I enjoyed getting to know more about you!
    And can I just say, “Congrats on the guns!!!” Look at that bicep in your pic. That is awesome. I love muscles. I can’t wait to get weight lifting back into my program. You are inspiring.
    veronica recently posted…Wastin’ Away Again in 180-villeMy Profile

    • Thanks Veronica! My arms are my drawing tool in this fitness industry. I appreciate that! One of these old blog conferences, you’re own for some pizza and a movie!

  11. Three awards in ONE week…you.go.girl!! 😀 Hahaha…and of course you would break the rules Joi! LOVE IT! Paris is so my dream vacation destination! Wanted to go this year for my 45th birthday, but that didn’t pan out. 🙁 Proud of you girlie for what you’ve accomplished in the bloggersphere in such a short time! But of course I’m not surprised Ms. Social Butterfly, lol! Congrats again Joi…have a wonderful week suga!!
    Michell recently posted…Michell’s Weekly Pearl…My Profile

    • I wanted to go last year Michell but no one wanted to foot the bill to join me 🙁 I will keep searching! Thanks Michell!

  12. I loved this post!! We have so much in common. Girl I can quote Boyz n the Hood in my sleep!!! I love me some Eric Jerome Dickey as well LOL… You have awesome goals and I’m sure you will exceed your goal of 1500 now. How do you get facebook traffic? I haven’t tried that. Do you have a personal and blog page or did you combine the two?… I’ve never considered a blogging mentor. I usually just see things I like add them to my page and make them mine or email a person but that’s a really good idea…. You are so inspiring Im so glad I found your blog!!!!
    Toya recently posted…X-rays, MRI, oh and its MONDAY!!!!My Profile

    • Hum, when you said that, reminded me I left off a movie! I can quote Baby boy and all that ratchetness too 🙂 !

      I have both a fan page and personal page. I post all New post on both. On my personal page usually 1 to 2 times and my fan page about 4 to 5 five times over 2 days at “peak times”. It’s hard though with fan pages because FB has filtered out the news feeds in order to get you to purchase sponsored post 🙁 It’s a real headache but I continue bc Facebook stays in my top referrer list.

      Thanks my friend. I’m glad we have connected as well.

  13. A. Joi , my darling, I got a solution to your looking mean. Just smile everytime you think about your passion- fitness , Rx and blogging and you will never look mean Again! Yeah Joi is smiling 24/7!!!

    • HA HA HA! You were logged in from your phone as me, that’s why I didn’t see your comment. I fixed it 🙂 You have jokes today I see!

    • Lol, glad you liked it. Yeah, I don’t know about doing it again, especially being so close together. Congrats on getting nominated again! Keep up the good work!
