We’re Losing The Blogging Weight with Mangodrin

The Blogging Weight

As a blogger-syndicated publication, Recess is a community for Las Vegas women to share and inspire through honest insights.  With a large network of local bloggers, we cover topics from education and cooking to technology and dating.  I always look forward to our Blogger Events because it gives me the opportunity to catch up on what my fellow social media mavens are up to.  Although we may write about many different topics, we all have one thing in common, and that’s blogging.

Another thing (most of us) have in common is that additional weight brought on by our passion for writing, and in some cases, the combination of  those pesky post-baby pounds.  Healthy 9:00pm bedtimes are a thing of the past as blogging “in the zone” often keeps me up until 2:00am while potato chips beckon me from the pantry.

Thanks to local nutraceutical and cosmetic company, truDERMA, our bloggers have been challenged to shed those extra pounds by using their all-natural products like Mangodrin, a patented African Mango supplement.


We’ve Been Challenged- #MangoChallenge(d), That Is

This past week, our bloggers joined truDERMA at the GNC store on West Charleston to talk about our upcoming weight loss challenge.  The ladies (and a few gentlemen) talked about individual weight loss goals and what has- and hasn’t- worked for them in the past.

Some frequently asked questions were about the caffeine or stimulant used in Mangodrin.  There are actually two Mangodrin products, Mangodrin XTREME which has caffeine, and Mangodrin SF which is stimulant free.  One representative from truDERMA noted taking the one with caffeine in the morning, and then the stimulant-free product in the afternoon which curbed his evening cravings more.  Fortunately, Mangrodrin comes in a combination packet as well.

Whether you’re launching a new business, product or book, the power of the blogger to promote your venture is undeniable.  Bloggers typically have a loyal following, especially within their specialized area.  They also have a strong social media influence and know how to use outlets like Twitter and Pinterest to reach the widest audience to promote content.  So, how do you tap into this force and get bloggers to authentically write about your business?  One way may be to throw a “Blogger Event”.
