I see you. I see your IP address and what pages you read. I see what search terms brought you here. I obsess over whether you are a spy bot and nobody really reads my blog except me. My stat page tells me that you are real and some of you come back every day to see what’s new. Some of you are friends from Backyard Chickens and some of you are strangers. I am just happy you are here. Bloggers live for the numbers. They sleep better if they get comments. I don’t sleep very well.
Today I launched a new FORUM section to see if I can draw any of you out of lurker status. I hope to get discussions going about animals, family, food, recipes, etc. If you have a favorite recipe I’d love to see it. I may even try it. If you think you can make a better version of one of my recipes bring it on. If you think your goats are cuter than my goats, prove it. If you have any donkey training tips, I’m all ears. You will need to register to post and as per our policy, we don’t track or store your data and we never give out your email address. So come out, come out, whoever you are and say hello.
I started blogging after I got sick and had to quit working. It was a way to fill my time and share my stories. Odd things happen to me and around me. Without co-workers to tell the stories to, it just didn’t seem the same. So I started blogging in order to tell my stories to some imaginary friends. Cyber friends if you will. When I make a great dinner I love to share the recipe and picture with my imaginary friends. I know some of you try my recipes and that makes me happy. I love people coming to our online store and buying rare and endangered chicks and hatching eggs. I love it when they write back and tell me about their hatch.
