I’ve been thinking on this a while now.
Initially, it was inspired after leaving a job that taught me well, specifically social media. The driving was an hour day; not much for some, too much for me. And too much for the deer I hit. And the car I tearfully parted with afterward (loved that old blue car).
My hope was to share life on this South Dakota farm. And not just that fancy stuff, either.
Unfancy parts of life, like:
The soul-aching moments that hurt to write, are hard to share, but always worthy in the end.
Since that time, I’ve come across a multitude of blogs with the same farm-life intentions, the same sweet cow faces,
the endless beautiful skies.
And lately, this leaves me wondering… where do I fit in?
Or better yet, how do I stand out?
I’m sure many of you can relate.
So as I think about where in the heck I am going with this thing (since I ain’t leaving), I hope you will stay with me while I revision, rethink, and avoid the stink of staleness. I hope you stay, because you’re really liked here. You keep me sane most days.
If you feel like sharing, I’d like to know… why do you blog? What made you start in the first place? Have you found it worthwhile?
