Way back when…9 years ago… I was at a place in my life where I wanted to start something new, but I didn’t know just what. At that point in my life I was working with a wonderful friend (still is a wonderful friend) who said to me–“Start a blog.”
The beginnings of my blog were rather bleak, I had so much to learn. But blogging combined several things I enjoyed doing —photography and working on our farm. I’m sure it was tremendously boring for others to read, but for me it was exhilarating.
The comments left by each of you are cherished— as an exchange about knowledge, understanding and connection. For a long-time I personally sent an email to each individual who commented. Today I answer on the blog, so everyone can see and participate and even get to know someone of interest who is a fellow commenter.
This little blog of mine has given to me friends from all over the world, people I get to meet in a daily way every day by my blog.
Although, I have never had a blog post reprinted in a magazine, or a post go super viral,or even viral :), I have had the absolute fun of writing– I write about farming, rainbows, the land and my love of it, every aspect of the sky and— ‘stories’ about the dogs who live on our farm.
As long as I can remember I wrote stories, stories in the first grade, stories in Jr. High, stories in high school and college, stories and poetry after I started raising children. Writing stories on the blog is a huge delight to me.
This is MY conversation with you. And it’s an honest conversation…I like writing TO You. I like Sharing WITH you. I like Showing you, without an agenda, our life on a western Colorado farm.
And I delight in your conversations with me.
Now having said all that I just want to say Thank you for your friendship! It’s a wonderful journey.
From my heart to yours!
