I’ve got a confession to make:
As I celebrate my one-year Blog Anniversary, I took some time to reflect on the past year.
The questions I asked myself were:
Where did the time go? Why did I start blogging? What am I most proud of?
Where do I see this blog going in the next year?
Have you ever said?
- “I’m tired of doing the same thing every weekend”
- “I hate seeing my children in front of their electronics all the time”
- “I wish I knew of new places to go within my budget”
- “Some attractions in the Hudson Valley are too expensive”
- “I want to see different things, but I don’t know where to go or how to start researching it”
- “I want to make lasting memories with my family, but don’t know what apps to use fro my phone”
Let me tell you something about my journey this past year:
‘Hudson Valley Exposed’ was created to help you step out of your comfort zone and try new things
Taking time to research places, yet alone, to go any new places once caused me anxiety and stress. Going to new places and new events looked interesting to me, but actually going to see these things and attend events was a whole different story.
Writing ‘Hudson Valley Exposed’ has become my therapy. As soon as I committed to creating ‘Hudson Valley Exposed’, I am happy to say that I began exploring new places, both alone and with my family. My blog gave me purpose and a drive to better myself in all areas of my life. It serves as my creative outlet. It has become my passion; scouting out new places and photographing them excites me.
Now that HVE is in full swing, let me show you what I’ve seen and experienced, so you can also go and see yourself.
‘Hudson Valley Exposed’ was created to help you meet other interesting people
HVE has led me on a path to meet people I would have never thought of meeting. I ask them about their businesses or why they run a particular agency or why they started a particular event. I started this journey to learn something new and, in turn, it has taught me about myself and about others along the way. Everyone I have met has a special gift, and as I continue to meet more people, I’m sure that will not change. Now, let me lead you to meet new and interesting people.
‘Hudson Valley Exposed’ was created to help you make lasting memories
I am inspired on a daily basis to continue blogging and continue this journey. My family is my biggest inspiration and they inspire me to be the best I can be. I want to create something they can be proud of. I want to leave something behind for my grandchildren and their children to enjoy. Something that I created in order to help myself and others explore the Hudson Valley and Beyond. Let me show you how to make memories that will last a lifetime and beyond using your camera phone.
As I approached the one year anniversary of starting ‘Hudson Valley Exposed’, I often sat back and tried to remember what my life was like before HVE.
I remember sitting around and feeling like I did not know what to do next. I often struggled with where to look for things to do and I felt like I was disappointing my family. We often found ourselves repeating the same activities, going to the same places or staying home.
Don’t worry if you feel the same way. Let me and ‘Hudson Valley Exposed’ be your guide!
I look forward to this next year and the new adventures that it will bring.
