Quote of Day: A blog is a writer’s playland. I’ll tribute that quote to my best writer-mama-pal, Roxane. She’s the first one to say it to me and the one who got me connected with all you readers and bloggers out there. Thank you! This is my Blogaversary. One year ago this Thanksgiving weekend, I launched by blog.
You can read my first post here. Once I released my blog to the universe, I was amazed at how quickly I made connections and felt part of something bigger than my own little world, here in central Minnesota, USA. I’ll list the best of Play off the Page, year one.
My favorite using photos and writing about the Creative Spirit.
The title that attracted the most male readers, I Left my Bra in Omaha, and on the healing power of friendship and self-care.
When I wrote about the book, The Curse of the Good Girl, and teaching girls to live authentic lives, I got a response from the author of that book. She passed my blog post on to her readers. It was a shining moment in my blog connection experience.
Likewise, when I wrote about the Hot Shops in Omaha, the artist whose glass piano I featured found me through a series of connections. Click here for the follow-up post.
As you can see, I really get around. I added the flag counter this summer and get excited whenever a new flag appears. Thanks for visiting from your dot on the globe! Thanks for connecting with me. And, to continue the connections, I’ll list below two humorous blog posts I’ve read in the past week.
Tara at The Feel of Something New for her tribute to her twins’ birthday and a funny video on crazy conversations about multiples.
The Kill Zone for a post on “Tipos.”
The journey continues. The path beckons. Stories are everywhere.
Go. Create. Inspire!

Thoughts in Progress
Happy Blogaversary!! Glad you’re part of the blogging world! 😀
Mary, I love it! This is an exciting day for me too. I felt like being out in the blogosphere without you was like keeping this amazing secret from you. I nudged you, but you had to be ready, and once you were ready, watch out world! You’re nearly caught up with me in followers and that’s in one-third of the time since I’ve been blogging. You really know how to connect and I love your posts. They are filled with great lines and thoughts and you definitely belong here! Thanks for giving me a little credit. It was my pleasure. I remember with fondness the day in Caribou when we set it all up. Even though things went a little slowly due to computer issues, you figured it all out and have been flying ever since. So proud of you Mary!
Celebrating with you today in so many ways. I look at your personal growth in only a year, it is astounding. You have stretched, you have adventured, you have connected.
I am proud to call you friend. You are an amazing woman.
Happy Blogaversary! You’re a wonderful blogger!I agree with you how our little world shrinks to meet friends far,far away.
Happy Blogaversary! You have blessed my life by your blog….and actually last week I finally got the book you blogged about The Artists Way. You are an inspiration!
Happy Blogaversary! I am not sure where the path is taking me this year..forward..no doubt pausing to smell a few flowers..other than that I will just meander along!

Hi 🙂 Congrat with your blogaversary. Blogging is so much fun. I am your new follower. I am from Norway.
Happy Blogoversary! I’m so blessed to have found this place!
Hmmm. A series percolates right here in Normal, Illinois. So fun! So different from my first four novels.
Is your interest piqued? Hope so!
Hi, this is an answer to your question: I live in Norway now, in Telemark.
Happy Blogaversary. Okay now I am going to read I Left My Bra In Omaha.
