When I started this blog 15 years ago, it was (to me) a new and handy form of communicating my everyday experiences. For many years I posted just about daily, and put a lot of time into it. A total of about 6,000 posts to date. In recent years, I started posting on Instagram, and that took time away from blogging. Also, I’ve come to realize that I need to devote more time to producing books — which pays the bills around here.
So I’ve cut down on blogging these days. (I have Twitter and Facebook accounts, but they are merely repostings from Instagram.) I’ll be throwing up photos here when I get the chance, especially from my next book, The Half Acre Homestead, which I’m designing right now.
I’ve started doing more frequent GIMME SHELTER email newsletters recently. Communicating by email seems positively Old School these days — an alternative to “social media.” I’ll describe these newsletters (maximum one per month) in the next post, and how to get on the mailing list.
