In the past almost two years I have been blogging my every day journal I have learned so very MUCH, from having the privilege of reading posts put out by other fellow bloggers from all over the World.
Blogging for me has really opened up the World, with meeting so many wonderful new friends along the way. This day I decided I would like to recognize Ontario Bloggers, as myself, who are scattered about this Province I have lived my whole life in. Before I introduce those who have joined me here this day, let me tell you a little more about where I live, even though most of you know it is "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
Should anyone be a long time visitor to the Bruce Peninsula, they might know what "North of the Checkerboard" means ... you do not know? Just *click* HERE for the best explanation going in my "Neck of the Woods". Not to many months ago Wiarton had been renamed the Town of South Bruce Peninsula, but for many of us we will always be Wiarton.
What has put Wiarton on the Map of Ontario to make it "shine" every February 2nd? Let me tell you, should you not have already met the little guy respsonsible .....
Celebrations are plentiful in the Town of South Bruce Peninsula on the Groundhog Day Weekend. Want to find out more about all the fun? you can find all about it since Wiarton Willie has his very own Town Page, so please do so by *clicking* HERE.
There is much more to where I live, as most who follow my blog have seen in many of my posts. Bruce County is a wonderful county, with almost everything about found by exploring yourself through the Explore the Bruce's website by *clicking* HERE.
Psst ... thinking on coming up to the Town of South Bruce Peninsula for a whole wonderful Weekend of some Wiarton Willie fun? well I just happen to have an "in" on where you can get yourself "hooked up" with some Official Wiarton Willie Gear.
And that folks is a little bit of History about what put Wiarton on the Ontario Map.
Only a short while ago I did a SHOUT OUT should anyone be interested in a Ontario Bloggers Day. I was amazed at the wonderful response I received. Many of the following I have known for some time, who I now feel I have a special bond with, and others I have now just recently had the pleasure of meeting.
We all having something to bring to the "Plate of Life" and I am proud to introduce you to some Ontario Blogger's who bring a little bit of something themselves, contributed through their personal blogs.. Take a minute to *click* on each highlighted link beside their names, as you will also be taken into a very wonderful World, as I have been myself, through the eyes of some very talented and giving of themselves "Ontario Bloggers " ....

To each Ontario Blogger who has participated I can not begin to tell you how pleased I am that each of you were here to partake in such an amazing day of coming together. Please each take the time to introduce each of yourselves to the other, hopefully even "joining as a follower" on the blog as a gesture of your support.
I truly do enjoy what each and everyone had to contribute to this day, and I am looking forward to hosting another Ontario Blogger's Day sometime again in the near future.
Remember when stopping in to visit at anyone's blog, "take what you will from it and leave the rest", as an individual's blog post is their own personal journey, not to be judged or criticized by another.
Until we meet again, I am off and running, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
