I dont know about this one mcBrooklyn.
Seems like a "blogfest" would be a bunch of people sitting in a circle taking pictures of each other, "posting" them and then looking at their belly-buttons (except you of Course!)
What do the donations goto?

Do you believe there is a connection between blogging and obesity?

Definitely. Not only the countless hours sitting in front of the computer, but something about the technology itself is turning us all into a bunch of potatoes.

I noticed this recently the majority of bloggers that I have met in the area would be considered to be obese.

I'm not sure about obese but perhaps some character/social defects for sure! For example, The BhBlog guy is insane about the Busy Chef. Just mention the two words and he starts frothing at the mouth. Also, before I started commenting here I was there and noticed how mean they can be about people. Dont want to get into it as its such a beautiful day! I like the positivity of Mcbrooklyn.

If we take a look at the local bloggers it is true that most of them are overweight.

8:43 I hear you about the brooklynheights blog guy--still a good place for news though, but the guy is a bit mental re busy chef and his experience there

I may be mental, I may get frothy, and I occasionally may be mean to the defenseless, but the Busy Chef Still Suckks.

Seems like they're trying to improve. I'm told they made some personnel changes -- like putting the people who can't speak English into non-customer support areas, etc.

Lack of sleep; lack of good food; lack of exercise = fat blogger.

following the thread here, I guess we now know where the money goes for this blogfest---the food & snacks table!

I like reading good blogs--but maybe there's a new axiom about bloggers and blogs, where the better the blog is probably better to be read than their bloggers seen.
Chew on that.

I'm getting hungry.

I just binged out reading all this---time to go back to my own blog.

I have never seen an athletic blogger in these parts.
