I know journalists aren't supposed to talk about themselves but I have to say some of my favorite blogs are about real people that tell their own stories. Carrots N' Cake blogger Tina Hauport shares her healthy lifestyle one carrot and one cupcake at a time. Truth be told I want to be her! I'm saying that in an admiring non-stalkerish way. There's something to be said for having a few words and showing a sort of photo diary of your life, provided it's an interesting and really colorful one. I'd love to have a wildly successful blog, adoring husband, new house and a super cute pug.
Tina photographs nearly everything that goes into her mouth. What I enjoy about Carrots N' Cake is that it's not just a visual diary filled with food porn but that it's about a real person's eating habits. Tina shows us how to drop the pounds and keep them off by adopting eating habits that are healthy, balanced, and above all . . . livable. She indulges in treats, drinks booze but runs and cooks a lot of her own food.
