When I first come across a blog there are a few factors that determine if I am going to become a reader of said blog. With Jamoosh, it was clear…I would be a frequent reader of his blog.
Initially, I was hooked by the opening statement of each post; usually a lyric. I liked that he set up his post this way, which was different from any other blog I had read to date. Furthermore, his blog is interesting. It is peppered with life tidbits and humor. Sure he writes about running and fitness and his 4987239 yearly push-ups goal but there is more to his blog that just stats and figures (or I wouldn’t be a frequent reader).
While Jamoosh’s blog is centered around running, he also writes frequently about his other love. No, not his wife…beer. He loves his running and he loves his beer. And he has found a way to make the relationship between them both work. And when he isn’t writing about running or beer, he focus’s on the important things in life like farting and bacon and Jaclyn (the wife).
All of this makes Jamoosh’s blog sound like a man’s man blog, but honestly, he has a deep female following. Of course with that said, you must know this: If you become a reader of Jamoosh’s blog there is no guaranteethat he will become a reader of yours- the man has criteria!!! He is not a fan of the female tangent and would prefer to read about women who write about running (duh) but also women that fart, who are dorks (and okay with their dorkiness) and who drink and write about beer. If you like bacon…bonus.
Given this criteria, I must admit, I am unsure how Jamoosh and I became blogger friends: I do not drink beer, I don’t like bacon and while I am a proud girl farter (I just admitted that to the world, yes), I don’t think I ever talked about it on my blog. It is only my guess that my dorkiness and charm won him over 🙂 Whatever the reason, his is a favorite of mine to read and I highly recommend to stop on over and check him and his blog out.
Oh, and Jamoosh likes photos, so here are a few I picked specifically for him!
After the DE 1/2 Marathon- My free beer of which I did take a sip!!
I was a huge fan. I had all the gear and was proud of it! And if this does’t scream my dorkiness, I don’t know what else will!
There is a 99.9% chance I am farting in this picture.
