For me, starting a blog was a natural next step. I had always written about the things I enjoyed. Sure some of that was in letters to friends, but they got more elaborate once digital cameras were everywhere. I like telling my story almost as much as I enjoy hearing someone else passionately tell their story. That’s what leads me to love reading a good blog. Done well, a blog is both timely and timeless, personal and representative.
With the amount of time I put into agriculture, it’s no wonder ag blogs rise to the top. I have a blogroll here of some I keep a close eye on, but the list of good ag blogs quickly started getting too long. So I started a twitter list some time ago and have added to it for some time. It was a private list for a while, but I sort of thought others may want to see and subscribe to the list. You can check it out at JPlovesCOTTON/Ag-Bloggers.
I encourage you to browse the blogs linked on each of these people twitter bios — I THINK all of them are linked to from their bio. Contribute to the conversation by adding a comment now and then, maybe subscribe to the feed for new posts. If you have a blog and I missed you on the list, add a comment here letting me know. If you haven’t started a blog yet to tell your story, give it some thought. I’d love to hear your story.
