The Curious Cowgirl with champagne


Break out the champagne and let’s all have a toast!  What’s the occasion?  It’s the First Blogversary of The Curious Cowgirl, and I have LOTS of goodies and giveaways for y’all!!!  Read on!


Happy First Blogversary

It all began with a guest Blog post on my friend, and mentor, and Jedi Master’s Blog.  Tanya Foster, I can never thank you enough for encouraging me to write this post about leaf peeping in New England!  I’ve never looked back, and I’ve never enjoyed any endeavor I’ve undertaken more than my Blogging journey!

My first profession was teaching, and that thread has run through everything I’ve done professionally!  Learning something, then sharing the knowledge with others!

Over the past 12 months I have written 20 posts about NYC, 8 posts about Paris (with a whole lot more coming over the next few weeks).  I’ve written about sites to see in the Great State of Texas 18 times, and Rome and Italy have been highlighted 16 times.  I’ve profiled 17 Fascinating Personalities.  And together, we have discovered so many exciting travel-related subjects.  A total of 150 Blog posts will roll out before the end of 2018!

So, how to properly celebrate the One Year Anniversary of The Curious Cowgirl Blog?  With treats and giveaways for my READERS of course!  This Blog would be meaningless without y’all.  You encourage me, you inspire me, you challenge me, you support me, and you laugh with me.  You READ what I’m writing!  I’m super super grateful y’all.
