About Lifelong Michigander

Lifelong Michigander aims to promote all that is good about the state of Michigan. The mainstream media too often focus on the negative aspects of Michigan (to be fair, they focus on the negative aspects of just about everything). Lifelong Michigander does not deny that Michigan, like every other state, has some warts, but the mainstream media can focus on those. This blog hopes to provide content that spotlights Michiganders who are making a difference, Michigan’s past and present contributions to society, Michigan sports and everything that makes Michigan uniquely wonderful. 

In an episode of Mad Men, Don Draper says, "If you don't like what's being said then change the conversation." Michiganders, especially those of us living out of state, hear a lot of the negative stories from the mainstream media spit back at us, often by people who have never experienced how wonderful Michigan actually is. Maybe some of the positive stories on this blog can help Michiganders change the conversation.
