My first entry for MSB was titled Utah Beauty and my first photograph was of Bryce Canyon. We had just taken a quick weekend road trip to southern Utah, my first, to see some sites, and I was blown away by the beauty.
Now I am 12 months and 474 blog entries into this. Reflecting back, it has been a lot of fun and a great creative outlet.
I thought I would focus mostly on writing about my move to Utah, but I've traveled so much over the past year, exploring the broader western US, that the writing quickly expanded. I have a list as long as my arm of blog topics that I haven't written yet - many of them related to recent travel recommendations for food, lodging, sites and routes. I also have many photos and byway experiences to share. Sometimes it is challenging to find the time and creative energy to write all the things I want to write about.
A goal for year 2 is to be more consistent with the number of and content of blog entries; and to finally improve the look of the MSB layout. I have the ideas in my head but do not know how to transfer these to the screen as I am computer graphically challenged. Suggestions are always welcome on how to improve MSB and make it more interesting, useful and reader friendly.
More trips on the Byway are coming soon...an east coast adventure, Miami Art Basel again, Cancun, many more trips to the Mojave Desert, more work adventures in Liberia and the Republic of Georgia...with helpful trips for travel and photographs.
So stay tuned and get out there and enjoy your Byway.
