Who would have thought that my little blog would create so much interest.
My blog journey started on January 1, 2013 as a photo-a-day challenge to find that something special, something to be grateful for each day. It has continued daily (mostly) for 3½ years.
Farm-ily Facebook came about much later and only after encouragement from family and friends. Reaching 1000 likes on my Facebook page is a delightful but surprising milestone.
So Blogging vs Facebook?
Blogging is like an old friend; a friend that I am very comfortable around. It opened my eyes to a completely new world, and gave me the opportunity to “meet” other people from all walks of life. And for that I am eternally grateful. Farming life can be somewhat isolating so connecting with you all on a daily basis is something I treasure greatly.
Facebook for me is like a new acquaintance. We are just getting to know each other. This new friend has expanded my horizons and given me a fresh perspective.
We need both new and old friends in our lives to keep things interesting and balanced.
As the old saying goes:
Make new friends but keep the old.
One is silver and the other gold.
