My husband looked at my blog the first time last night. As he was reading the "Productive Day" entry, he got this odd look on his face.
"It's weird that people like this - the little details of someone's life." I think that was his nice way of saying that my blog is boring.
Clearly, he hasn't explored many blogs - I, personally, love to read to the minutiae of other people's farms and lives. But it got me to thinking about blogging as phenomenon. On one hand, it is precious to me to "meet" other people who share their lives with farm animals and work to be more self-sufficient, but at the same time, it's amazing to think about talking to people so instantly from all over the world - and to people who don't always comment but stop in to visit through reading.
My first foray into talking across oceans to a stranger was a pen pal I had from New Zealand when I was 17. We're still in touch, actually, but it isn't letters anymore - it's email and Facebook. I actually did meet her several years after we'd started writing when she came to visit when I was newly married. Although I kind of miss letters, I adore my email, I must say. And I enjoy comments on my blog very much, too!
Thanks to everyone who stops by and for those of you who take the time to leave a comment, too!
