    Ok, fairly new here. Does anyone do a homesteading blog? I would love to read about your homestead and the trials/successes you have had. If there is a list somewhere, point me that way, if not, list 'em here.

    A while back there was a blog thread on the computer forum. A few people here do have blogs but I can't remember who right now.

    I went to the computer forum, typed in "blog" in the search window, and got nothing. I always thought it would be fun to do, although I know very little about it. Could someone tell us more? Please?

    A blog is an online diary that is usually shareable by issueing the site URL.

    A Blog is a web log. Of course in computer speak it mophed to a weblog and then finally to a blog.

    I have a couple of blogs. I have a homesteading one that I have started here: http://modernhomestead.blogspot.com

    I am going to document our move to a homestead. The whole process hopefully, and talk about some of the reasoning behind it. I was hoping to read what happens on some of y'alls homesteads too.

    If you have never blogged you can get a free blog at www.blogger.com If you have just been "thinking" about it, go ahead and do it. If you like writing and aren't afraid to have people talk back and forth, you can even turn on your "comments"! It is extremely easy and I just like to write... so anyways. I would love to find out if anyone has one.

    And I would love for you to check mine out and feel free to comment.

    I post a blog as part of our ranch website. The website is www.misty-river-ranch.com and the blog is http://mistyriverranch.blogspot.com. No flames on my writing - I get enough of that at home from my english major wife :). The website is pretty basic now but will be adding things as time permits.

    I have a blog, it's relatively new. I am new to the country, so am not a "true homesteader." But I am learning a lot, and loving the country.

    Hey T D'E,

    Good blog.

    I just found this one a few days ago... he is a "professional" writer and better than all of us amateurs, but it's pretty good. http://www.billpowellisalive.com/
