When it comes to blogging, I never have a shortage of ideas. My computer is filled with files of photos and my notebooks with pages of notes. Just the other day I compiled a list of blog topics because I simply did not want to forget something. The list numbers nearly two dozen items.
I know some of you who have seen me out and about may be wondering, “Why hasn’t she written about (here’s where you fill in the blank)?” I promise. Your blog is coming.
Here’s my current list of blog topics, in no particular order:
Kenyon horse pull
Minneapolis henna artist
Bike parking at the Kenyon swimming pool
Bemidji candy shop
Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox
Itasca State Park
The Mississippi River
Twiehoffs’ in Faribault
Munsinger Gardens in St. Cloud
The Rose Garden
Tim Swanson’s 1959 Chevy
Treasure City in Royalton
The Turkish Scarf Project
Some of these topics date back to a month ago, when my family vacationed in northern Minnesota. Others are places I’ve been just in the past week.
Sharing my photos and the stories I’ve gathered now ranks as my favorite type of writing. I enjoy it almost too much, if that’s possible.
If you haven’t visited the Midwest Mix Magazine website, check that out too. I have a few blogs there and at least one more to be posted soon on the Blue Collar BBQ and Arts Fest in Faribault.
In the meantime, I promise to keep blogging and, hopefully, entertaining and informing you through my writing and photography.
I’m also working on stories for the holiday issues of Minnesota Moments magazine and Midwest Mix Magazine. So…, I best get busy writing, after I hang out the laundry.
