Everyone Has An Important Story To Share: North Iowa Bloggers Included

OK~ There's something to be said about living in Rural America. It's true, we often know our neighbors and the people in our communities. Here in North Iowa, the North Iowa Bloggers are a huge part of my life. And just in case, you don't know who some of these fine people are, I'm going to introduce you to a few of them and their stories. With so many bloggers sharing so many great things, you will want to stay tuned as I introduce you to several other amazing North Iowa Bloggers over the course of the next few weeks. Everyone does have an important story to share, and I want you to get to know my fellow North Iowa Bloggers.

Summer 2015 memories were made with Iowa Food Bloggers Cristen Clark and Kristin Porter.

Meet Joy of Living Life Joyfully:

Joy is a cheerleader for everyone and anyone. She is passionate about helping folks with disabilities and including them in anything and everything. I look forward to her amazing, daily photos that she shares through social media. Check out the beauty of this Iowa sunrise.

Meet Val of Corn, Beans, Pigs & Kids:

Val is a farmer, farmer's wife, stay at home Mom, and blogger. Val is also a giver. You can log into her blog the first day of any month and learn where her comments for a cause are going. In December of 2015, you can comment on any blog post and she will donate money for a cause. The charity she has chosen for Comments For A Cause in December is The North Iowa Cheer Fund.

Meet Mary of Natural Plus Nursery:

Dave & Mary are owners of a family owned business in North Iowa. Mary shares the joy that new seasons bring to owning a nursery that is loaded with nature. Spring is a time when several of their clients look for a fresh start. These two will help you with your landscaping, assist in choosing the perfect tree and will even lend an ear when you need one. I can guarantee that you or someone you know will connect with the "heart" that Mary writes through, as she openly shares their journey of trying to start a family.

We all have a story and I love that our North Iowa Bloggers are sharing their stories and touching the lives of others all around the world. We are a close knit group. A positive work environment is so important and through blogging, several North Iowans have been brought together. I love that these people are a part of my life. Part 2 will come soon and I promise you, you won't want to miss it!
