Today marks one year that I have been blogging here at ADITL on the Farm. I looked back at my post from this day one year ago and Hah....It could be the same post today...we are, once again, canning and getting ready for the piglets. I guess our life is pretty predictable.
Some things don't change. Many do. We have gone through a lot together in the past year. Weddings, babies, puppies, deaths, changing roles, changing dreams and ideas. And you have been here through it all offering congratulations, support and encouragement. I thank you for that.
I was reading one of the blogs I follow this morning, Zippiknits, and she was playing Sunday Stealing. Lo and Behold, it was all about blogging. So today, in honor of my Blogiversary, I am going to participate in this Sunday Stealing game.
For those of you that would like more info or to join us...Here you go.
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
What kind of blog do you have? My blog consists of my life here on the farm. I share my adventures with cooking, canning, raising animal, dyi projects, decorating, quilting, caregiving and travel. I recently started a new blog, where I am sharing my daily Quest for Fitness.
How many posts do you have? 751 posts on this blog...well this will make 752, and 4 posts on my new blog.
How many blogs do you follow? 44
How many followers do you have? I am not sure how you figure that out. I have followers by email, by facebook, by bloglovin, by google+, and I am sure other feeds.
How often do you change your theme? Since my theme is so broad, I haven't really had to change it. Then again, it changes daily, depending on what is happening in my life at the moment.
How often do you change your icon? I haven't yet.
Do you have any favorite blogs? I do....you can read about some of them here. I also belong to several clubs that I love. Secret Recipe Club, Food n Flix, Cook the Books, CG Swaps and I just recently signed up for 10 Days of Tailgating which begins September 20th and which I am excited about.
Do you ever send anonymous messages to other people? No, if I have to be ashamed to sign my name to something I shouldn't be saying it!!
Do you ever get any anonymous hate? Just once, and it wasn't very hateful, just someone who was anti-catholic. I tried to reach back with love and understanding and heard no more from that person.
Have you made any friends through your blog? Several, and I hope some day to meet them in person.
What's your favorite thing about blogging? Getting to know you, my readers and followers. Receiving your encouragement and support.
What's your least favorite thing about blogging? It is pretty time consuming. It takes a lot of dedication and you find yourself living your life with the thought of how it is going to blog in the back of your mind.
I will be sharing this at Inspiration Monday. Stop by and let us know what Inspires you.
