Monica and Kate are the bloggers behind Chi Organic Girls.
Describe your blog:
We are fitness, fun and food chasers. We dive in to all things Chicago and are passionate about helping other locals find those hidden gems or eye opening experiences. We love to promote health and wellness (with a touch of delicious treats in moderation).
What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?
We really love our fitness experiences! Our trip with the REI outdoor school was the most memorable as we got to trek around Matthiessen State Park in some gorgeous fall weather. We saw little froggies swimming and leaves falling. It was one of those zen kind of days. The guides as well as the people attending the trip were also friendly and down to earth.
What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?
More training on editing websites and pics.
Why did you start blogging?
We both went to free events all the time and people starting asking us every weekend what we were doing and where we found all the fun stuff. Kate loves to write and Monica loves to take pics so as best friends, it was the perfect partnership to help other city goers locate the best of Chicago.
What is your favorite social platform?
Twitter!!! Omg because there is so many opportunities to score free stuff and get quick tidbits of digestible info.
What are a few of your favorite Chicago blogs?
Refinery 29 is a quick read and we love their stories that promote healthy body image and beautiful women in all forms.
Balance Babe, Sarah Baker, is sweet as pie and practices balanced health in her own life.
Vegetarian Tourist, her blog is funny and approachable. She writes about places we wanna go and food we wanna eat!
Mag Mile Runner, Maggie is irreverent, open and honest about her life as a brew seeking runner and amateur burlesque dabbler.
