Happy Blogging Birthday!

Happy Blogging Birthday!

I can't believe it's been one year already since I wrote my first blog for Lifetime365.com.  I have to admit, back when the folks at Lifetime first asked me if I was interested in blogging, I was a bit hesitant.  Don't get me wrong, I was super excited they asked me since I am a former Lifetime employee and I LOVE writing.  It was a perfect fit.  But, I wasn't quite sure how I would ever come up with enough topics about Lifetime products from my daily life to blog one to two times a week. 

Well, it turns out that when you really like something, it's pretty easy to talk (er, blog) about it non-stop!  Kind of like how people can go on and on and on about their kids.  :)  Until I started this little project, I honestly never realized how many times and ways I use Lifetime products almost every day.  And, as you've probably noticed, I only use a handful of their wide selection of products.  Most of my blogs only focus on folding tables, chairs, sheds, and wheelbarrows.  Why?  Because, quite simply, that's what I own!  That means I haven't even scratched the surface of Lifetime's other assortment of quality products like basketball hoops, utility trailers, composters, and playground equipment.

So, one year and 58 blogs later, happy blogging birthday to me!  Hmmm, maybe it's more of an anniversary than a birthday.  Oh well, moot point.  Either way, I hope my blogs have helped to educate, enlighten, and inspire you at least a little bit over this past year.  Here's to many more blogs to come...

Name- Jan

What I do for a living- First and foremost, I'm a doting mommy of a second grader and a 4-year-old, and a proud wife of a USAF F-16 fighter pilot!  In my pre-children life, I was the Communications Manager for Lifetime Products.  But, once you're a Lifetime fan, you're hooked!  So, after a few years of hiatus, I'm now a WAHM and am happily back on board at Lifetime as a freelance PR Consultant.  In addition to blogging for Lifetime, you can follow and chat with me on Lifetime's Twitter account @Lifetime365 and on the Lifetime Products Facebook page!

Topics I blog about- How I use Lifetime products in my everyday life at home, for kids parties and community activities, as well as inspiring stories... and GIVEAWAYS!  :)

My favorite products from Lifetime- 4x2 Table, 30” Personal Table, Chair, Youth Kayak, and Wheelbarrow.  Although, our Shed and Yard Cart are pretty close favorites, too!

Waterproof Tables at Swim School
My son started taking swimming lessons a few weeks ago at a new swim school that just opened by our house. I must say, for a 5-year-old he does really well! He's known how to kind of swim for several years, but we're hoping this new class will help perfect his stroke so he is proficient and completely independent for this summer's swim season. The place where he takes swimming lessons has a pretty thorough system of checks and balances to ensure each child completes the necessary skills in each level. They have an instructor that monitors the swim teacher and student during the lesson and evaluates if the skill is mastered. After the skill is mastered, it is recorded in a logbook and marked off on the child's wristband. I was happy to see when I walked in the first day that they use a Lifetime 4-foot adjustable height table...
Rocks, Dirt and Wheelbarrows

Jenn and Wes found themselvesall caught up over the weekend and thenevery day after work for a weekhauling dirt, raking out rocks, and landscaping the yard with rocks.Luckily they had a handful of willing helpers to getthe job done. We love thatLifetime Wheelbarrows have two wheels,are stable,and so easy to use, said Jen, Ourshas really come in handy. The first few days started with three truck loads of lava rock that was wheel barrowed and shoveled in to fill the curbing around the stairs and the island (This took 3 days of on and off work).And in the nextfew days they started filling in rocks under the back deck and along the side of the RV pad. They sprayed for weeds and grass, la...
2012 Plans Revealed at Semi-Annual Corporate Meeting
This past Saturday was a day we all look forward to here at Lifetime all year long - it was our semi-annual corporate meeting. Yes, it requires us giving up a couple hours on our Saturday, but it's worth it! First of all, it's always great to see about 1,000 of our employees gathered together at one time. But, more importantly, it's also when we get to hear how Lifetime as a company fared during the previous year and we get to hear where we are headed for the new year. And, the owner is gracious enough to share a portion of the company's profits and gives all employees a bonus check at this meeting for helping in the company's success - just one of our many fantastic employee benefits at Lifetime Products! We started this year's meeting by recapping some of the past year's highlights. As part of the recap, Lifetime President...
