People have often told me I should journal about our adventures and life up north. I’ve tried and failed miserably. I hate journaling. What good is a journal? No one appreciates it until you’re dead and it’s found in your boxes of junk. Even then, who knows if someone would care to read it. Blogging on the other hand motivates me. I am able to share what we are doing with the world and anyone is free to read about it, right now, and make comments. So, I guess it’s our on-line journal with the interactive aspect thrown in.
Starting our own blog has led to following other bloggers. So, on this one year anniversary of blogging I’d like to share some of the blogs that have made an impact on me throughout the past year.
Aaron Brown’s blog keeps me in touch with National and Iron Range politics. He keeps it interesting with his goofy commentaries and his one of a kind sense of humor.
Friends like Erin and Bill remind me of how beautiful and enjoyable it is to be in Northern Minnesota.
Gia’s blog keeps me humble as I am reminded that some people’s lives are SOOOO much cooler than mine.
Christina Brown, The Northern Cheapskate, continually finds ways to save money and challenges me to save on our day to day expenses.
Charity teaches me that eating healthy can be oh so delicious and interesting.
These are just a few. I enjoy hearing about numerous other friends, their families and their day to day lives through their blog posts.
I raise my glass to the blogging community that has help keep me in touch and informed this year. May we continue strong through the following year and years to come.
