If you have never read a farm blog, now is the time to start.
There are a legion of bloggers who write about their lives in often
hilariously funny or wise or insightful or heart-warming (or all of
these together) prose.
I am sure there have always been farm diaries written late at
night when the chores are done and the kids are in bed, even when
the only light was from an oil lamp and not the computer screen. I
am also sure we write our stories as a way to exhale from the day's
unexpected events, because life on a farm has more than its share
of unexpected events.
Photos are the side benefit of many of the stories. We have
become photo-journalists in our own right. I almost hate to go out
to the barn without a camera in my pocket.
So, here are a few of the farm blogs I have found entertaining.
They are great for reading alone or aloud. Great for a laugh or a
cry. Great to know we are not alone in the vagaries of farm
life! (Disclaimer: I have included my own farm blog in this
list. I hope to look back on it in 20 years for a good laugh and a
