Two years ago this month I started a little blog titled 'Backwoods Plaid' to reunite myself with the outdoors while living in Boston. City life was missing something; this Mainer didn't permanently belong. In all honesty, it worked. The blog reminded me where I truly belong - Maine. The Pine Tree State offers unimaginable outdoor destinations and country-relaxation that puts a soul at ease. Those of you who've followed for any length of time know that I love L.L. Bean products. Today, and tens of thousands of viewers later, I feel like I've accomplished something. I've met some great folks, provided hundreds of recommendations to viewers, worked with famous outdoor brands I couldn't have dreamed about 24 months ago, and as of today, accepted a new career offer with L.L. Bean.
I've officially earned a copywriting position in the Creative department for my dream employer. I look forward to honing my passion of writing, working with outdoor products, and learning the century old brand that is L.L. Bean. Backwoods Plaid will refocus on outdoor adventure, photography, and story-telling. I thank you all for the support, emails, tweets, and most of all, weekly page views. Here's to carrying on our love of the outdoors for another two years...
