Yes, That's me. I am five in blog years and a genuswine blog hog. (I just made my sister and my daughter-in-law hurl with that "genuswine" comment. Word purists those two.) Anyway...
I started spewing forth my opinion, never humble, in May of 2009. If interested you can see that first diatribe Here.
My very first comment was made by The Yeoman Farmer who is still an active blogger himself. He said in his comment to me "One of the all time great introductory comments in a blog!"
So there you have it. It is all Yeomans fault. Perhaps if he had told me something like "Don't ever give up your day job." or "You call this blogging? I'll show you blogging" My enthusiasm would've been quelled and all of you might have been spared.
But no. Yeoman lit the fire that is my blog. To reward him, I have a small gift package from our farm store which he will receive ONLY if he makes a comment on this 5 year anniversary blog. And Yeoman, if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address that package may actually arrive.
To reward the rest of my followers I will blog every day for the next 30 days AND I will blog about something farm related each day which I have never blogged about before. For example I've talked about piglet castration (one your favorite posts, I know) but I don't believe I've ever spoken about piglet hernias. And you thought The Midlife Farmwife just couldn't get any better didn't you?
One final request. The news all over the Internet is that blog comments are dead. Prove them wrong will ya? Make a brief comment for my blogiversary , right now before we both forget, and I promise if I get at least 10 comments I will never blog about piglet castration ever again.
Cross my gonads and hope to die.
