Because of My Farm Blog
Start A Farm Blog
Now is the perfect time to start a blog. Generally farmers (in the Northern Hemisphere) are spending more time in doors. It’s a time of fresh starts and looking to the future. And keeping blog for your farm or ag business is a completely worthwhile venture.
Since I have some of the best featured farmers on the web, I asked them a simple question that would give some insight as to what their blogs have done for them. This is the first in a series of posts containing their responses to the statement…
Because of my blog…
Because of my blog I have a place to express myself and tell my story to others in any way I feel compelled to do so. There is a huge sense of freedom in composing with words, pictures, videos, and links to other sites. All of this makes it fun for me to relate to the reader what is happening on my farm or in agriculture news. You never know where your thoughts, writings, and compositions are going to take you. If I had not started blogging I would never have published an ebook, for instance. Because of my blog I have made connections with people from not only the Unites States, but also around the world. And that is simply amazing. The Udder Side
Because of my blog... I’ve been able to meet and discuss gardening and growing strategies with from people around the world. Meeting these people taught me about new plant species that will do well in my soil. www.soulsbyfarm.org
Because of my farm blog, I was chosen as this year’s Ag advocacy winner for the State of Idaho, with a special luncheon with the governor in February 2013. My blog also led me to become friends with a Farm Journal reporter who was able to fly out and write a story about our Dinner on the Farm which was featured in their November, 2013 edition.
So overall, my farm blog has helped me connect to many people throughout the State of Idaho and all over the country. Life of an Idaho Farm Wife
Because of my blog…I see my cattle feed yard from many different perspectives. While I obviously see it through my own eyes first hand, I also see it through the ” virtual eyes” of my readers as they offer feed back and ask questions. This not only makes me a better communicator, but it also makes me a better feed yard manager and animal caregiver. I have come to internalize the saying, “no matter how good you are, you can always be better”! Feed Yard Foodie
