30 Days of Dirt Roads- Prologue

Thirty Days of Dirt Roads

Stick around here long enough, and you’ll quickly learn I tend to do things at the last minute.  I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl.

Whether it’s because I’m a master procrastinator, operate better under a deadline, or have so many irons in the fire it’s inevitable (maybe some of each), it works for me.

I’m super excited about my most recent last minute challenge though, & couldn’t wait to share it with you!

Every year in November, bloggers from across the blogosphere challenge themselves and each other to write.  A lot.  A post a day for 30 Days.  Awesome!

Even more awesome though, …farm, ranch & rural bloggers, have been challenged by Holly over at Farm Progress to spend the next 30 days blogging about agriculture.  I love it.  I’m IN!

So why did I wait until the last minute to decide to participate?  It wasn’t exactly by choice this time.  As a newbie blogger, I’m still learning my way around.  Earlier this month, Jenny at the Prairie Californian put out a call for food producers to be featured in her 30 Days of Food series on her blog.  I thought it was a great way to showcase how lots of different kinds of food are grown. (We’re pretty excited to be featured as a lentil producer– we’ll make sure we share the link!)  And I thought that someday I should do something similar,…that it would be a great way to build my blog presence & get lots of practice writing.  Fast forward to today when I read Jenny’s blog intro to her series, then linked to Holly’s post explaining how the challenge works.

Someday…, became today!  Introducing my first 30 days of blogging challenge:  30 Days of Dirt Roads.

Starting tomorrow, & over the next 30 days, I’ll be showing you some of my favorite dirt roads, and explaining how & why they’re intricately woven into the pattern of farming & ranching.

They’re more than a means of achieving transportation.  They’re an integral part of agriculture.  A piece of Americana.  A page in the history & culture of food production.
