Twitter For Bird

Um, I feel like a dork, but I went ahead and signed up for a Twitter account. The whole micro-blogging thing seems right up my alley. However, I haven't posted a single tweet. I'll wait until I have more than 2 followers. :-)

Bantams

I did a quick post on bantam chickens at Community Cluckers. Check it out.

The Art Of Hatching

I posted something new over at Community Cluckers. It's all about how we brought these gals into the world.

Cluck Cluck

Some of you bumpkins out there might be familiar with Mother Earth News and Grit magazine. Shortly after Brandi and I became hillbillies (in May of '09), we had our rural neighbors driving up to our little farm in their golf carts giving us handfuls of old homesteading magazines including Mother and Grit. We were hooked from the get go!

Now I've been honored to be accepted as a regular blogger for Community Chickens, an online magazine from the publishers of the aforementioned publications. The blog is called Community Cluckers. Feel free to check out my first contribution, For Love Of Poultry.

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

I Did It

There's a popular Christian blogger out there who everyone reads, at least it seems that way. I've had this guy on my blog reader for months now, maybe even a couple of years. Before I started using a reader, I would frequent his blog directly, and once in a blue moon I'd actually see a post that sort of grabbed my attention.

Finally, today, I did it. I took the guy off of my reader. I'm sure I'll drop by his blog from time to time, but I won't be reading his blog with any real frequency. Despite some interesting content from time to time, I don't usually have the patience to wade through his blogging style. He's link happy. He uses italics like a fiend. And he has an annoying habit of misusing dashes. Those infractions, along with many other minor issues, all work to make reading his blog feel like, well, work. When reading turns into work, it's no longer a joy for me.

Don't get me wrong, this guy's a great believer and he encourages hundreds (if not thousands), but he's a great believer who's out of my hair. I'm free!

I love the blogosphere.
