Meet My Fellow Bloggers In North Iowa

OK~ I'm looking at this blog and thinking to myself, wow- how did I get here? Did you know that All In An Iowa Mom's Day has been on line for more than five years? Yep, it's been a great ride.... lots of fun to come in the future as well. Just over the past few months I have met a few more bloggers in my area. North Iowa is really coming to life when it comes to bloggers and it's an exciting time to be a part of such a great adventure.

I'd like to introduce you to these amazing North Iowa women and their blogs!

Meet Debbie Albrecht of Debbie's Midwestern Kitchen.

Debbie writes about food, fitness, and other ramblings around her home. And just in case you missed it, she has one of the BEST steak recipes around on her blog: Copycat Northwestern Steakhouse Dinner is one you must try!

Val Plagge blogs over at Corn, Beans, Pigs and Kids. If you'd like to know what the life of an Iowa farm wife is like, you can get it all by following Val!

Val has started a Little Free Library in Latimer, Iowa. Her community is going to love what she has done. Who wouldn't appreciate a place for families to read new books? Corn, Beans, Pigs and Kids keep Val very busy!

Joy Brown writes over at Living Life Joyfully and On My Mind Right Now. Joy shares her thoughts and musings of being middle age and she has a passion for the National Inclusion Project.

Inclusion... a Right, NOT a Privilege will give you insight as to how devoted Joy is. My Face To The World is Joy's published book of her personal cancer journey. Connect with Joy, she will inspire you to live each day JOYFULLY!

Meet food/lifestyle blogger Jeni Flaa.  Jeni's recipes and musings will make you smile, as well as test your taste buds! Jeni blogs over at Jeni Eats.

Jeni also writes about her pets... those stories are often times pretty hilarious. So, from food and other fun things, Jeni will make you smile and brighten your day. Oh yeah, and just in case you need something new for the dinner table, here you go- Bonding Over Beef Stroganoff.

Beth Ann Chiles blogs over at It's Just Life, Finding The Extraordinary In The Ordinary. Beth Ann's Comments For a Cause will inspire you; in fact, she inspired fellow North Iowa blogger Val of Corn, Beans, Pigs, and Kids to start Comments For a Cause on her blog!

If you love tea pots or not, you will LOVE tea pots once you become indulged in her blog! Trust me, she knows where to find the cool tea pots. Her love of travel, life and tea pots are sure to make you smile. Tea Pot Tuesday is one day you definitely want to swing by her blog- which tea pot is your favorite?

Donna Hup can be found at Donna blogs about giveaway, recipes, reviews and much more. If you are a movie enthusiast, you will also appreciate her reviews and insight to current and future movies.

Donna recently participated in a bloggers tour in Branson, Missouri. She experienced zip lining and had a blast! Donna is new to North Iowa, as she and her husband recently moved from Florida to North Iowa. I wonder if she wishes she would have stayed in Florida with the cold we had here this Winter? We are delighted to have Donna in North Iowa, as she is a seasoned blogger and offers fun information on her blog

Meet Laura Cerny. Laura blogs over at All Things Travel.

Her motto of Life is Short. Travel Like You Mean It is one I love! Laura gets around... Her travels to South Africa have been fun to follow on her blog. No Hooting, Save The Rhino, And Dung Beetles Have The Right Away will give you insight to her travels. 

And I think it's fair to say on behalf of all of us bloggers here in North Iowa we all enjoy meeting new people. We enjoy writing, sharing, and being social! So..... check out these blogs and see how long it takes you to find some new inspiration for your life. I don't think it will take you too long! These North Iowa bloggers are awesome writers and I'm proud to call all of them my friends. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
