It’s a Michigan Thing….
7 years ago, I embarked on a new path with two business partners. Together we created amchiganthing.com. Our hope was to share our love of all things Michigan with our friends, family, and people we hoped would choose Michigan as a travel destination. We knew how wonderful it was to live in Michigan, and we wanted everyone else to know too. 7 years later, A Michigan Thing is back–reborn again–like a phoenix rising from the ashes, or—a lovely Michigan spring time—she returns again to share that same love and inspiration as the original.
You know, when we launched in 2005, social media was in its infancy. Mark Zuckerberg was like a freshman in college and Facebook had not yet invaded our home. YouTube had not yet gained popularity (though they were born the same month we were.) Now in 2012, we enjoy so many wonderful things thanks to social media. One thing hasn’t changed, the need to get outside and enjoy the sun, the fun, and all things Michigan.
I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to share pictures and stories of your visit or your upbringing in Michigan. I would love to share them here. I will share Michigan moments with my family and our adventure living just a stone’s throw from the beaches of Lake Michigan.
