What Kind of Blogger Are You?


Since today is Tuesday, I’m  linking up with Zenaida and Kim (Kooky Runner) and you should too.

I love to read running blogs. I love that they are all so different. Of course, they would be because all runners are different.

My topic today is: What Kind of Blogger Are You?

(These types are in no particular order.)

  • The Coach

You are a certified running coach or you are an experienced runner. You post advice on how often to run, what to wear, how to train, when to stretch, what to eat, etc.

I benefit from these bloggers’ posts especially if I going to be running a new distance, a new type of course or just need information of a particular running topic.

  • The Race Reviewer

You run a lot of races and write detailed recaps of each one.

These posts are really helpful to me when I am going to be running that same race. I also enjoy reading them if I have followed that blogger’s training.

  • The Over Sharer

You write about anything and everything…from TMI to your pets, to your job or your family, etc.

These posts are often not related to running but help me get to know the person who is blogging better and I may even identify with some of the personal issues shared.

  • The Entertainer

Your posts are funny, include humorous memes or just make the reader laugh.

There are days that I really need to not to be serious about running.

  • The Foodie

You post advice on what to eat, on different types of diets or you include recipes.

Except when I am hungry at work and look at these delicious food pics, I do enjoy the sharing of recipes and advice of what to eat related to running.

  • The Cheerleader

Your posts are encouraging, motivating and inspiring. You write about the ups and downs of your running. You are honest but provide hope.

Of course, I always enjoy reading these type of posts.  Running is hard and we all need a little encouragement now and then no matter how successful we are.

  • The Business Promoter

Often, your blog is your business or a way to earn money. Your posts are paid or sponsored by a product or group.

It doesn’t bother me at all if you are paid to write but I only appreciate those posts if the blogger actually uses the product that she/he is reviewing and is honest about it.

  • The Journal Keeper

You post a chronicle of your daily activities: how many miles you run, if you bike, cross-train, do yoga, swim, etc. You even account for your rest days.

I am often in awe of how active and consistent some bloggers are.

  • The Photographer

You share photos of your runs, your races, your race-cations. The pictures may be selfies or scenes from your runs.

They say “a picture tells a story.” I do enjoy these stories. Keep snapping away.


I’m linking also up with Coaches Corner–Debbie and Marc.

So what kind of a blogger am I?

What kind of blogger are you (if you blog) and what kind of running bloggers do you enjoy the most? Please share.

Happy Running!

  1. I would say probably all of them except the entertainer and the business promoter (although there is a bit of that, and likely to be more going forward, but I do try hard to provide value along with promotion).Just as I chose a “profession” where I can also be of service. Nice topic!

    • I don’t earn any money from any posts and I try to stay away from non-running info about myself (but it does slip in). I don’t think I’m funny either and I’m definitely not a foodie. Otherwise, my blog is a bit of a mix.

  2. I’m a little bit of everything, but I do try to keep my family out of most of my posts. I appreciate all their support, but they didn’t ask to be a “regular” in my running chronicles, so I try to respect that.

  3. I think you are a good mix of Race Reviewer and Journal Keeper, with some notes of the others.

    I think I cover a fair share, except Coach and Business Promoter. I do some sponsored work and make some money off my blog, but nothing major.

  4. Oh wow… I have no idea what kind of blogger I am. Haha. I think coach but I don’t really focus on that as much anymore. I do write detailed race recaps but I don’t race as often as I used to. Help! I’m like a lost puppy!! Your post has me thinking I need to zero in on a niche again.
