hey guys - i know i've posted a ton in the last 24 hours, but just wanted to clarify one more thing.
i have no issues WHATSOEVER with the premise behind the HLS. i think it's awesome, and i totally support the idea that the organizers were going for.
i also get the fact that it requires a lot of money! i can't even imagine how expensive it was.
my ONLY issue is what seems to be happening to food blogging... the negatives you guys commented about. i think many people are confused, feeling guilty, or deceived, and unfortunately, i feel like the Summit was the culmination of those issues.
i read the agenda, the prep work, and the after-posts - and i'm still saying i didn't go, so i'm not going to judge. it's not my place, or my purpose to criticize.
my intention was to raise awareness that a requirement of health is using your OWN mind.
i am thrilled the Summit encouraged bloggers to be healthier. that makes me crazy-happy! i just was making a point that it's not the whole picture, and it's worth thinking about.
and i get frito-lay has more money than smaller companies... but continuing to show support of big businesses who do NOT promote health doesn't encourage smaller companies to thrive.
just my thoughts. and i promise that's my last post about it :)
thank you SO MUCH to every single person who read and commented - i appreciate all of your opinions and you taking the time to share your thoughts!
the whole point of this was to generate awareness and conversation. thank you so much for joining me!
