I have been blogging on and off (more off than on lately) for 10 years! Unbelievable!!!
September 27, 2006 was the first post I ever wrote....it's on a blog that is no longer public and journals all the trials and tribulations as we worked on getting ready to open our scrapbook bed & breakfast in Amish country only to have the whole thing implode 3 days before closing...but that it was definitely God's will because shortly after that, I had to have spinal surgery.
Then when I was spending all my time writing about our first chickens, and our dreams went a different direction, I started this blog.
|Look at how little our Boy was with his first chicken!!|
I haven't been writing for lots of reasons. My beloved Canon Camera bit the bullet in the one day between the calves births this spring. And not having pictures, has made it less fun to blog. Add to that the crazy busy of teaching two new mamas the whole milking routine and growing (AND WEEDING-UG) for the CSA, milk delivery....etc. I haven't had much down time.
Add to that a new tablet that will not post correctly (I got the tablet specifically to be able to "blog on the fly") and it's just been too frustrating.
Eh, excuses, excuses! Enough of that!
But I've discovered, I miss doing it.
And since I have a milestone blogoversary coming up, we are going to do something about that!!
So starting today, I will endeavor to blog everyday between now and then (September 27, 2016). And for every comment posted on the posts, I will put your name into a drawing for a gift of our Wallace Homestead Jam/Jelly Gift package! So if you comment every day, then you have 32 chances to win!! If you refer a new reader and they comment and say you sent them, I'll add another entry for you!
Thanks for reading! I appreciate you more than you know!
