Welcome to High Desert Blogging!


High Desert Bloggers Meetup



I like to blog, write, read, travel, garden, take photos of nature, and go with my husband gallivanting around the High Desert in addition to travels across the U.S.  In our travels we’ve spoken with individuals who have lived in their cities all of their lives and never ventured out to discover their surrounding attractions.

Rusty, Editor at

Rusty is a gifted writer and also experienced in editing, copywriting, ghostwriting, and museums. She is a talented lady, not only in blogging (check out Rusty’s awesome website and digital magazine coming this year) the only one I know who isn’t afraid to deal with Mohave Green Snakes and Rattlesnakes! I think she knows what every kind of High Desert creepy-crawly thing is. It’s a pleasure to have Rusty as a part of

The High Desert has several antique shops, an interesting Southwestern shop with the coolest and most unique gift items and Southwest decor, thrift and gift shops, coffee shops, and more shops, fascinating sites, fun parks, and lakes for family outings. The High Desert has interesting people, fascinating sites to see, beautiful scenery, and businesses to serve its communities. I go out and meet the people who own and manage these businesses, admire the scenery, learn about the fascinating surrounding sites, take pictures and blog about it all. That’s what High Desert Blogging is about – a blog about High Desert activities, adventures, attractions, people – and blogs.

The articles on this blog are written either by people who live in the High Desert, love the High Desert, or know about High Desert people, history, events, businesses, or other interesting facts about the area. Article submissions are considered by the editor and/or editorial assistants. Articles or information published on this blog do not necessarily express or reflect my personal views and are not endorsed by me.

    Thank you Angie for your direction. I will pay for the seminar on Friday morning cause that’s a pay day for me and also the last day to pay. No I never procrastinate. I suppose you need to subscribe to see inside your blog, but I did look around as much as I can. One thing would be good to know how much it is going to be to subscribe before you hit the button but maybe that’s how we get the curious. I’m looking forward to setting up my blog and to working with some people who are already doing it. Thanks for introducing me to everything.

    You’re welcome, Linda. It’s free to subscribe to High Desert Blogging. It does cost to join the network, however. To read more about that, see the Network page.

    Hi Angie. May I ask if your blog really has to do with business in the High Desert? I keep getting referred over to your blog from MeetUp but you know that business…crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
    I am looking for CAD user groups and product origination/developers group but the High Desert sure seems, well, deserted.
    At this point I would appreciate getting a lead on ANY product makers group, engineering, or even local Google Hangout!
    I just have not been able to find anything up here.

    Thank you very much!

    Look up It’s not specifically a product makers group but is a group of entrepreneurs who meet monthly.
