This Isn’t Goodbye…

For two years now, I’ve been adventuring and sharing my love of life in the Maritime Provinces here at Maritime Love. We’ve been on many local adventures together and had so much fun.

But I feel it’s time to broaden my horizons outside this magical little corner of the world. I’m hoping to start doing more travelling outside of the Maritimes soon, and I want a place where I can share those experiences and also explore how growing up in the Maritimes has influenced how I see the world around me.

So, with great consideration, I’ve come to the decision to close down Maritime Love and start a new blog, a more personal and hopefully worldly one, at The Meandering Maritimer.

Fear not, though friends, all Maritime Love posts will still be available to read and I’ll still be doing some exploring of this region. There is still so much to see, after all. We’ve only just scratched the surface. I’ll be bringing you those stories over at TMM as well.

I want to thank everyone who has read and shared and commented on any of the posts on this blog. Thank you for sharing your love of this sea salt-soaked land with me. I appreciate your support so much and hope that you will come over to The Meandering Maritimer and follow along as I start this new journey.

This isn’t goodbye, it’s just the beginning.

Good-Bye-For-Now

Share Your Maritime Love!

Today marks my one year blogiversary.  It’s been one year since I started writing regularly at Maritime Love.  It’s been a wonderful year full of self discovery and creative expression.  Thank you to everyone who has visited maritimelove.com and read, shared and liked my posts.  It’s so amazing when people reach out to tell me they enjoy the site. I really appreciate your support!  This has been a labour of love, in an effort to give back in some small way, to a place that has given me so much.

I’ve enjoyed sharing my stories here over the past year and I will continue to post about my adventures around the Maritimes in the future.  But this year I want to focus on connecting with people in the region and learning what it is they love about the Maritimes.  So, I’m launching the Share Your Maritime Love Project, where I’m inviting you to share what you love about this place and why.

More specifically, I’d like to know:

  1. Do you live in the Maritimes? If so, where do you call home?
  2. What do you love most about life in the Maritimes?
  3. What do you find most challenging about living/doing business here?
  4. What is your favourite place(s) in the Maritimes?  Why?
  5. What do you think we can do to build a better Maritimes?

I would like to feature someone new on the website each week.  It could be a born-and-bred Maritimer, a new resident, someone who has left the region or a visitor.  I want to hear from all of you!

By doing this, I aim to learn more about the Maritimes and the people who live/have lived here and I hope to gain insight into what we can do to improve life for Maritimers.

If you are interested in being featured on Maritime Love, please comment on this post or reach me through social media (links on sidebar) and I will be in contact with you. Please share this post with anyone you think might be interested.  I can’t wait to hear from you!
