blogger recognition

I can’t believe I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Reward

by the **awesome** LowcountryHippie!

Thank you !!!!  

You have been my #1 fan since my first post!  I appreciate that!

 

How was this blog born?

When we got our chickens there was soooo much to learn and so our blog was born!  As we learned, I wanted to pass those “chicken tips” along to other newbies!  Since we have become more natural and are attempting to be self-sustainable, naturally healthy, and cleaning our home and coop with chemical free homemade cleaners, I thought a blog incorporating all of these would be a great way for me to keep track of everything!  I’m no spring chicken (pun intended) and my memory fails me most days, so having a place to go to document our recipes, DIY projects, etc. sounded like a great idea.   So our “brand” is homesteading, essential oil using, healthy (most times) eating, chicken loving old folks living!  Oh, and DIY stuff too!

For the new bloggers – a tip or two.

Hmmmm…..first, don’t stress about posting!  Pick one or two days a week that you will post and do that until you feel you have the time/topics to post more.

Secondly, have tons of topics listed and a bunch of posts written and ready to post when you start!  I didn’t. So I stressed.  Until I realized this isn’t a job…it’s for fun!

I have a full time job so I knew I couldn’t post each day so I started with my Fun Fact Friday series.  Take it slow unless you are completely ready to dive in!

I’m nominating these blogs…

Hot Mess Homesteading – we have like interests and I love reading about the goats, that’s something we want to add to our “urban farm” when we purchase our own property!
