I was reading this CNN.com iReport the other day...
... and it made me think a little. I wonder how CNN chooses which weight loss success stories to post, and I wonder what people's reasons are for submitting stories. Is it a kind of pat on the back? A celebration? A way to help keep themselves accountable by going super-public? A desire to inspire/help others? There's lots of good reasons for submitting one's story.
Personally, though, I'm much too private and shy to submit my own. I mean, you can see how I cut my head off in all my photos. :) There's no way I'm going THAT public with my story; blogging and posting photos on SP is a stretch for me as it is! But then I was wondering if any of you have submitted your story anywhere or are considering doing so. I know there have been some daily Spark blogs about various members featured on HuffPo and in People and various other places, and it's always wonderful to see. So I'm curious - if you were thinking about it, what would make you decide to submit your story to some kind of media outlet?
