I’m on day 2 of having a sick toddler at home and day 11 of this 30-day challenge.
This is what I’ve learned: Managing each, separately, is a marathon, not a sprint. Together, it’s like competing in the Iron Man, and I’ve never been much of an athlete. Yikes.
Thankfully H is on the upswing and, rather than mommy staying home another day tomorrow, she’ll be spending the day with her Nana. So, check no. 1 off the list.
And to check off no. 2, I’ll need you to visit Ryan Goodman’s blog, Agriculture Proud.
Goodman started his blog, simply, to share his story about agriculture and raising cattle:
“I didn’t know it at the time, but a summer spent on a Wyoming cattle ranch launched an entirely new world for me by sharing daily experiences of ranch life. On this blog you’ll find more stories about my passion for the cattle industry and the community of folks involved in producing our food.”
Goodman’s blog is an excellent place to stop anytime you have a question about production agriculture of any kind. While his experience lies in cattle production, Goodman often invites guest bloggers to his page to write about their experiences and expertise in agriculture, to give his readers a wide range of information.
Plus, Agriculture Proud is always a good blog to visit for a review or farmer or rancher opinion on hot topics in ag. Goodman was one of the first to dissect Subway’s announcement on antibiotics, giving an excellent rundown on the problems with the announcement, as he saw them, and what that meant for farmers and ranchers.
On his blog, you’ll find a section to ask farmers questions about agriculture, how to up your stats if you write a blog yourself, and info about his current home state of Montana. And if that isn’t enough, be sure to check him out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
In a nutshell, Agriculture Proud is home to lots of good information straight from the farmers and ranchers who work the land. It’s an excellent blog to add to your list of bookmarked sites.
