A Special Blogroll

When we lost our fellow blogger and friend Bethany earlier this week, it was a real shock to many of us. She was young. She was vibrant. And now, just like that, she is gone. I went to her blog a few times this week and I was struck by how many lovely comments people left for the family. And many bloggers have said they wished they'd known her or found her blog before she passed away.

There are so many weight loss blogs out there. Many of them get few comments. I get quite a few emails every month from bloggers asking me: How can I find support? How do I get people to read my blog? How can I become a part of the blogging community? I tell them to write regularly and read other blogs and leave comments. Often, people will come and read your blog if you comment on theirs. But it IS hard when you are just starting out (or even if you've been blogging awhile) to find support and community in the blog world. Support is essential, and we all deserve a part in this community of bloggers.

In memory of Bethany and with the consent of her family, I created a new blogroll site in her honor. This blogroll is for everyone; if you have a personal weight loss (or related) blog, I will be glad to add you to the blogroll. This way, everyone who *wants* community, will have community.

The blogroll is designed to make it easy for anyone to find new blogs they haven't ever seen and new posts they haven't read; the titles of blogs you have not visited will be linked in dark pink, while visited sites will be in blue. Newly updated blogs will be at the top, but you can click a link at the bottom to show ALL blogs and go visit ones that have not updated in awhile (maybe they could use some encouragement). I hope you will use this blogroll in this spirit in which it was intended: to build a supportive blogging community by reading AND leaving comments on blogs, especially those with fewer readers. Everyone can use a hand. Maybe you'll make some new, dear friends through this community. Maybe someone will reach out to you and help you change your life.

Bethany left kindness wherever she went. There are so many sweet, supportive words from her on my blog. Let's let her spirit live on in the words of support we leave for others.

Here is the new website. If you would like your blog to be added to the blogroll, leave me a comment here and I will add it. Only personal weight loss (or related) blogs, please. I posted a few blogs up there already, just to get started. Everyone is welcome! Let's build something beautiful.

cmoursler said...

If you would include me, that would be fantastic.
And can i say...what a frickin inspirational thought this truly was?
I can't think of a better way to honor her memory.
I didn't know her either, but when I heard I went and read her entire blog from 2008 on.
I wish I had read it before..because there were times she was echoing..or I was echoing what the other was saying.
Fantastic idea.

Niki said...

Hi,
I would love to be added. What a wonderful thing to do for her! I too, like Bethany was diagnosed with the heat condition PPCM after giving birth to my daughter. Her and her family will continue to be in my prayers. I pray they do more studies about this illness too so we can do more to help people. I'm rambling =) Oh, and my blog is on my weight loss, not PPCM. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of this. Much love and peace to everyone xox

Diana said...

Since you posted about Bethany's passing last week I've been thinking about her . I read several of her old posts, including her very first one.

This is so sweet what you're doing, honoring her life.

You're so right about the support.

I'd love to be added the blogroll for Bethany.

F. McButter Pants said...

Thank you to who ever already added my blog to the blogroll. Much appreciated.

Lyn, this is a wonderful idea. I had never read Bethany's blog, but the last post gave me chills. I will not soon forget her.

Anonymous said...

That's a really lovely thing to do Lyn. Well done you x x x

Because you mentioned her suddden death I went over to her blog to have a look. She seemed such a lovely lady and I was shocked she died so young.

Isn't it strange how just reading the words of strangers - strangers who are on a similar path to the one you travel - in this case weight-loss - can find such a bond?

RIP Bethany.

There is now a whole online community saddened by her loss and thinking of the family she left behind.

The power of the internet.....

DBDee.

Lovely idea Lyn! I get a lot of emails like that too and wish there was a better way for new blogs to be found. Remember Renee from Renee Gets Fit? She used to run fatfighterblogs.com which was a great directory. It doesn't appear to have been updated for a coupla years; I hope Renee is doing okay. Maybe we could start something new?

Blogging is what's kept me at it and the people who care enough about me to stick with me through bad times and good are priceless.

I'm very very late to this tragic news as I was cocooned in my own little world there for a bit.
This is a wonderful idea, Lyn, to not only keep Bethany's memory alive but to connect even more of us together.

I would love to be added.
Thank you.

How weight became an issue. said...

Thank you for thinking of others out here in cyber space and reaching out.

It's difficult to struggle along while feeling alone and invisible. It seems the bigger one gets, the less he can be seen. I've vanished into the rolls of my fat but I want out once more.

I'd really like to be added to the blogroll.

I don't have huge amounts to lose, but losing 40lbs. is as hard for me as it is for someone heavier and I have arthritis in my spine, so it IS about weight not appearance for me. Please count me in!

Lisa said...

What a moving and very thoughtful way to remember your friend.

I would be honored to be included in this special blogroll.

Hi Lyn, it's Loving Me from 3FC. I just started my own blog this week and would love it if it could be included on the blogroll. Right now I feel like I'm talking to myself, which is what I do usually anyway lol, but it would be great to make new blogging friends.

Meredith said...

This is such a great idea. I spent a long time reading through it all and taking it in.

I am new to blogging and to the blogging community. I hope that this helps to find others working getting healthy. Please add my blog http://ontheedgeoftakeout.wordpress.com/. to the blog roll.

A very touching tribute. I would love to be included in the blog roll, as I find it hard to stay motivated since no one is really reading it anyway. And I look forward to checking some of the other blogs listed there. Thank you for putting that together. It's wonderful!

Hi Lyn, reading Bethany's blog is an eye opener for me. I would love to be included in the blogroll. I can't wait until my son goes to bed tonight so that I can settle in with some hot tea and read through the blogs.

Thanks :) Jane

yeah, there is a problem with the entire Scrappin Blog site right now that they were trying to resolve. If it is not resolved soon I will have to redesign this blog.

Lara said...

Hi There
I'm so sorry about Bethany. She seemed like such a wonderful woman! I too have started a blog to not only try and lose weight, but to also resolve some of the issues I have as a woman who's a single mom and has gone through a divorce... it's tough.
would you be able to add me to this blog roll too?
Thank you so very much!

Lara
