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.
We’d love to have you share the next 30 days and 30 dirt roads with us! The easiest way for you to stay in touch, is to sign up for our Newsletter right below this post. When you do, you’ll receive a weekly email re-capping the blog posts for that week.
And to read all the other excellent blogs about Ag & follow along during the next 30 Days, make sure & bookmark Holly’s 1st day of her 30 Days: Agriculturists Who Influence blog over at Farm Progress.
We’ll see you soon on the Farm (& a dirt road)! -Shauna
