Blog, Blogger, Blogging

I've been thinking a lot about this blog lately.  About it's format, how frequently to update it, whether I want to try to make money with it, how personal I should get, if anyone reads it and how long I should do it.  I started it so I could share my experiences working a full time corporate job in the city and being a full time mother and part time farmer.  A few months after we got the farm I was drafting blog posts in my head and taking pics to share online.  I enjoy writing and there's a certain satisfaction with completing a post, like I've accomplished more in a day.  I want this blog to be about life and experiences on High Hill.  It really is it's own little village of animals and people living together - far from the city.  I commute an average of 12 hours a week on top of working 40.  I am not out to make money from this blog (I'm still contemplating AdSense) or to promote myself.  I know of a couple of blogs where the authors are literally asking for money from their readers - to start a project or to buy something they want.  That is never going to be me.  Sometimes I need advice or guidance and I hope to get that here.  Some camaraderie from the farming folks out there would be nice.  For right now, I'm not going to make the commitment to write everyday.  I'm going to write when I'm inspired to write.  My life is much to full right now to spend a lot of time scheduling posts and finding advertisers.  If you take the time to read my blog, welcome.

  1. i live in a very isolated area, and blogging was literally like opening windows onto the world for me, and i connected with lots of wonderful people. writing when you're inspired sounds like a great strategy.
    happy blogging! :)
