Are You Blogging Your 2014 Fitness Plans?




We can escape it no longer. January is the month of exercise. Despite the storms, torrential rain and less-than-appealing weather we’ve been having in the UK, our Instagram and Twitter feeds are full of people joining the exercise bandwagon as they attempt to get back into some sort of pre-festive shape.

I, too, have joined the craze and dusted off my trainers, making a quiet pledge to myself to use them at least twice a week as I follow my newly downloaded Couch to 5K app. I’m not calling it a resolution, because I’m not very good at sticking to those, but I’m hoping that the start of a new year will inspire me to finally get fit. Fingers crossed.

Helen at Actually Mummy is also using January to make some exercise plans. Her one word for 2014 is “Nurture”, as she decides to put herself first more and try to build exercise (and the odd hot bubble bath) into her routine.

Katie at Mummy Daddy Me is also hoping to get fit in 2014, and has already clocked up an impressive time on a 5k run alongside signing up for a new gym membership.

Sarah at Grenglish is not panicking (well, maybe a little bit) about the whole exercise issue. In her typically funny way she pretty much encapsulates exactly how I felt after all the Christmas indulgence.

Finally, it’s not just the women who are donning their trainers. Ben at Mutterings of a Fool is already a keen runner but he’s hoping to start blogging more about his adventures outdoors with the whole family. It’s a handy reminder that exercise doesn’t have to be about slogging through a 5 mile run at 6am, but jumping in puddles and rolling down hills with the kids can bring the same benefits.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
