Veronica “Roni” Noone started blogging in 2005 as a way to help stay accountable on her personal weight-loss journey. Seven blogging- filled years later, her mission is simple: inspire and share her ideas to live a lighter, healthier life. She does this through two of her blogs:
- Roni’s Weigh – a place for weight loss tips, insights and inspirations
- GreenLiteBites – a food blog filled with healthy and delicious recipes and cooking tips
In 2008, Roni founded SkinnyMinnyMedia, LLC, a company designed to help her manage the business side of blogging. As a web publisher and healthy living blogger, Roni spends most of her time blogging and has recently published her first book. She also works with companies throughout the United States and plans an annual conference.
In 2010, Roni founded FitBloggin’, a conference to bring new and seasoned health and wellness, fitness and weight-loss bloggers together for knowledge, personal growth and networking. The conference has brought together bloggers and reputable sponsors such as New Balance, Quaker, JELL-O, Tide, WeightWatchers, The Laughing Cow, Sears, Eggland’s Best and many others for two years now.
Recognizing the power of blogging, Roni also started and maintains a supportive online community called BlogToLose. Today, BlogToLose has over 5000 members and it is consistently growing.
Roni has represented and consulted for a wide variety of clients in the health and fitness industry including: WeightWatchers, Kraft, Vitalicious, and Subway®, Johns Hopkins University, Quaker, NutraLite, The Laughing Cow and POM.
