Four years ago TODAY, I sat down during a blizzard (yes, we used to have those in the winter) and started this blog.
My target audience (that's the PR person in me, that I even had a "target audience") was the 98 percent of people who don't live on farms. I even set rules to keep legitimate farm people away--today you can call us the two-percenters. I saw this blog as a way for me to have fun entertaining non-country folk while educating them on agriculture AND stretching my creative writing muscles to help my PR career.
I recently updated the style of this blog. It's my slightly-more-girly-feminine-but-country-looks-like-dining-room-wallpaper-you-will-hate-later look.
Thanks for coming along for the ride.

You have a considerable amount of talent as a writer, with a nice dry sence of humor. Think about how you can take it to the next level.ReplyDelete
Congrats on four years! It seems like just yesterday your blog was crawling around in diapers, putting things in its mouth and drooling everywhere.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dale. "Taking it to the next level" is something I'll have to think about.ReplyDelete
Megan--thanks for insisting that I start this blog.
How about marketing the blog more? You know a thing or two about that. Maybe sell ad space like other bloggers and update every single day. Give your followers a reason to come back and more importantly, refer the blog to others.Delete
– Sell ad space
– Hone your craft
– Build a following
– Get famous and make a lot of money as a humor writer!
You are right. Right about all of it. I appreciate your vote of confidence. The first barrier is always the doubt that anyone will care what you write.Delete
I remember when you created your blog, wow time flies! I have not quite set up my blog. It's a work in progress.ReplyDelete
