Thumb Wind started as a result of the start of wind energy development in the Thumb region. Wind farm developers were signing up and locking in lease rights to just about every square inch of Michigan’s Upper Thumb and we were concerned. We feared we would see looming 20 story wind turbines everywhere including offshore. Many of my initial posts were stories about wind development. The most popular area is our wind farm map which provides detailed information on every wind farm project in Michigan.
However, I was encouraged to expand the scope of Thumbwind and soon I was covering other local events and capturing unique places, sites and things to do in Michigan’s Upper Thumb. Readers responded positively to posts about the Cheeseburger Festival in Caseville and padding to Turnip Rock so I kept going. Today there are over 300 posts dealing with topics like art galleries near Port Austin to the wild and crazy history of the Michigan Upper Thumb region. One topic in particular, the Ora Labora colony that existed from 1862-1867 received so much attention that I created a site dedicated to its study with ora-labora.org.
I hope to expand coverage in the future to include all of Michigan’s Saginaw Bay. I’ve been looking for contributors to expand our cope to include such great towns as Tawas and Au Gres.
What motivated me to write is simply the tag line of my blog . ” When my heart is full I reach to my pen to pour out. That’s my way to empty myself . And I believe to it’s very much needed to create space for new things in life. My writing are just a reflection of everything I see and experience in my life and in people around me. For a long time, I kept the writings to myself . What motivated me to start the blog was simply a demotivating and dull phase in my career ( academics) , as I am still a student . And I felt the need of something to start something new in life.
I never intended to write a book, or blog. I wrote a book, and now, I blog, in order to sell the book, so said my publisher. I wrote the book because mine is a skeptical family, who will scorn me out if proven to have offered an uninformed conclusion. If I don’t sell a book, I feel anyway, that I met my mission.
My mission seemed simple; to find my grandfather’s birth document and identify his mother’s heritage from mid-19th century Scotland, and then to inform my family. First half done; second, to roll out this week. The effort, though, revealed that his birth was illegitimate, and he was adopted outside his biological family. Same for his non-related cousin. Such posed huge problems for moving forward. I was able to propose eight parents to cover the two adoptees. However, typical of their time, there existed no documents of adoption, and story-telling had to substitute for DNA certainty, over parent selection.
How to present the tons of “proof” data, from a five year research effort? Write, cite and caveat. Then to throw it up to the cloud so my worldwide family could capture, and others could cannibalize? Or, copyright. So now, the researcher who is not a writer, is stuck with a book and a blog. OK, I admit, it is fun.
My blog is entitled Writer’s Choice.
I Share my thoughts on life through my writings, art and poetry. Some general Interesting facts can also be seen in on blog.
I have a deep desire and interest in writing poems and articles. Last year, in May 2017 I started off by using Blogger. I was using that for one whole year but it did not take off as expected. So, in May 2018 I decided to try out WordPress and that’s the best decision I made. My blog is diverse I post certain things which I am good at, which would help others to a certain extent.
My blog is called K E Garland.
I host an inspirational blog that includes quotes, stories, and photos.
Initially, I began my blog to sell my first book called, Kwoted ; however, it grew more to include personal essays and stories, and eventually, photos (taken by me). No matter what, each post is intended to inspire people to think differently about everyday occurrences.

Truly Madly Ordinary Stories from the heart.
My blog is about every day life adventure, most of all mine and it is supposed to show like the most Ordinary it can be extraordinary if you look at it with the right eyes. I started to blog because I always loved to write and I used to write but then I gave up for a while but now that I’m back I remembered how much I like it and how much it makes me feel good. Writing is therapeutic for me.

The name of my blog is Educated Unemployed Indian and it is about situations that an educated unemployed (like myself) deals with in everyday life.
The blog is not exactly about unemployment, rather I would say, it’s about being unemployed.
Unemployment is a part of the life of an unemployed person, but it is only a single part. There are so many other aspects that form the personality of an unemployed person, much like any other person.
This blog talks about such aspects of my life (including unemployment) that a lot of people (regardless of employed or not) can easily relate to. Things such as-
Talking about situations such as being jobless or having a job with lots of dissatisfaction attached to it.
The blog is about a depressing issue but it’s also about staying positive and finding other people & experiences to relate to.
You can find a few great quotes for inspiration and motivation.
Interesting list articles and useful how to articles.
And so much more.
