Happy blogiversary to me!

26 Aug

One year ago, after a little while reading other fabulous healthy-living blogs, after a cross-lake move from Wisconsin to Michigan and after leaving behind a newspaper career, starting a new job and fulfilling my soul with other passions, I started Musings of a Midwestern Girl.

One year ago, I started sharing my recipes, fitness endeavors and all-around wholesome Midwestern adventures with the world.

One year ago, I pressed “publish” and opened up the floodgates of opportunity–chances to keep up with family, make new friends and do something that makes me truly happy every day.

I know my little blog needs some work–and I have grand plans to revamp it this winter–but I am proud of it. It’s mine. It’s my voice. It’s my heart.

I hope you’ve enjoyed following along for the past year as much as I have enjoyed dreaming up things to share for the past year. I want to thank you, my dear readers, for sticking with me. I want to give you cookies–no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies, to be exact.

Sometime in the next week, I want you to leave me a comment telling me one thing you like about Musings of a Midwestern Girl and one thing you want to see in the next year. I’ll pick a winner at random at 7 p.m. EST Friday, Sept. 2.


Happy blogiversary, Musings of a Midwestern Girl! Here’s to another year of food, fitness and fun in America’s heartland!

    What does the winner get?

    I love your blog because it keeps me in touch with you, no matter what it is. It makes me miss you a little bit less.

      Winner receives one batch of unbaked oatmeal cookies (because I’ve been dying to make them and post the recipe on here).

    I just discovered your blog earlier this week. I read a few of the healthy living blogs, but I especially like yours because I recently moved up to the Midwest. I would love to see more food pics. Happy blogiversary!
