What are you doing now to prepare for your future?
What do you think you should start doing to create a better future for yourself?
Great questions, ladies. Couldn’t be more perfect timing. Keep reading for EC.com changes.
What are you doing now to prepare for your future? I honestly feel like I’ve been creating a future for myself since the day I moved to New York City four years ago. Four major races, three apartments, two full-time jobs, and one blog later, I’ve learned more about myself than I can write about in one blog post. In short, I’ve learned that I can simultaneously juggle and succeed at multiple things at once. While I’ve enjoyed every step of the way, I’ve recently come to the realization that I need more time to simply live my life. I need more time that isn’t spent at a desk, in a pair of running shoes, or behind a screen. I’m not quitting my full-time job or ending my racing career. That leaves blogging. So, what does this have to do with preparing for the future?

What do you think you should start doing to create a better future for yourself? Something’s got to give (or at least change), and it has to be blogging. No, EC.com is not entirely going away. But recently I’ve been thinking about how I need to change my blog to create a better future for myself. As my friend Sam and I recently discussed over brunch, it’s not okay to sometimes sacrifice living a healthy lifestyle in order to spend time writing a blog about health. It just doesn’t make sense. After conversations with a few blogger friends and reading a B Bar article about the future of blogging, I decided that Memorial Day would be the perfect time to make a change. I’ll be starting the summer by publishing only one (kickass) blog post per week. If we’re being honest, I’ve been posting less frequently over the last two months. From now on, expect a new blog post every Wednesday. There may be occasional exceptions for me to share time-sensitive content, but I’ll be sharing only my best content once per week. There may also be some format changes to EC.com, so stay tuned for that.
If you’re not following me on Instagram, now’s the time to start. The EC.com party is primarily moving over to Instagram, and you should join in. I’ve been sharing a lot of fitness fashion and race training photos over the last few months, but I’m going to start sharing more of my boutique fitness and general city experiences. Consider my feed a busy girl’s healthy guide to New York City. My captions will act as mini blog entries to share reviews of my latest experiences with you. Giant exhale. Honestly, I should have made this decision at the beginning of the spring. I love being part of the healthy influencer community in New York, but I think I can provide more, real-time value by doing less. There will be a blog post published on Friday, but the Wednesday schedule will start next week.
