Yesterday Jess and I found out that we’ve been shortlisted to the final 10 in the Best Fitness Blog category at the Cosmo Blog Awards 2015. It goes without saying that we’re ridiculously excited about this – our jaws literally dropped when we saw the shortlist and we really can’t believe we’ve made it this far (last year there were 46,000 entries!) Within such a competitive field we feel really flattered to have been selected and are so happy that we’ve got the opportunity to get our blog out there. We love sharing what we’re passionate about with our readers, so if you enjoy reading our posts we’d love it if you’d vote for us here: you just need to go to the Fitness Blog category, select Twins in Trainers, and then click through the categories until you get to submit. It only takes a few seconds and we’d really appreciate it!
OUR BLOGGING JOURNEY
It seems apt to write a little bit about how our blog’s developed over the last two years. It all begin in August 2013 when we decided to take the plunge and start writing; we wanted a place to share our fitness adventures and liked the idea of doing something together. At first we found it quite embarrassing and kept it mostly as a secret blog, but after a while we decided that if we were going to invest so much time into writing it, then we may as well let people read it! If people wanted to read it, that was great, and if they didn’t, then that was fine too! After a few months and some good feedback from readers, we became less self-conscious about it and started trying to reach a wider audience. We now love the fact that we have readers from all different walks of life and really value people’s comments and feedback on what we write – so thank you!
The content of the blog has evolved over the last few years and we really feel like we’ve found our niche within the blogging community. As well writing about our running and fitness adventures, we hope it’s become a forum for well written and informative health and yoga articles that are influenced by own experience within those fields. We’re passionate about what we write about and hope this comes across!
Twins in Trainers has become so special to us, a project that brings us together while life pulls us apart. That’s not to say it hasn’t had its lows: we’ve argued about it and nearly thrown the towel in several times when it’s all become a bit too much. But then we remember why we started it in the first place, how far we’ve come and decide to get cracking again.
It’s documented many important events in our lives, such as marathons, triathlon training, yoga teacher training and Jess getting married and becoming a fully qualified GP. We love looking back at the adventures we’ve had and scheming about things to come. We’ve come so far in the last 2 years and are now really excited about where Twins in Trainers will be in 2 years from now!
We’re so happy that people enjoy reading our blog and would love to be in the running for this award – so if you like what we do, please take the time to vote!
