Blogs I Read

This list has gotten so long that you may want to play around with search words on the page or something. Or maybe make a plan to check out a few of the blogs everyday to see which you may want to follow more closely. I love there are so many that its becoming overwhelmingly long! What a good sign for farm stories getting out!

The full list of agblogs I enjoy is accessible here. It is a great place to browse through the awesome world of agricultural blogs! Its gotten so long that I also decided to do some best of farm blog lists. If you’d like to see my top 10 (or plus) picks for farmers, women blogging home & farm, others in the ag industry, people who cover ag news & issues, young farm voices and more!

    JP
    I see you commented on my niece’s blog on Food For Thought(Tera Rooney). I love her Lessons From The Tailgate series as this is about my father. My husband is president of the Kansas Cotton Association and is on different National Cotton Organization boards. We also travel quite a bit. If you go to my blog, http://www.rrrooney.com you should be able to view a slideshow at the bottom of the home page. This is when we visited a textile mill outside of Bangkok. Anyway…check out my blog this coming December when we will be traveling through South Africa, with our backpacks again.

      Since I live in Memphis, we certainly must know some of the same cotton people! I’m a huge travel fan too and my travel blog has been neglected but I’ve been looking through photos some and think I may get back on that too. This year we could have been on the same flight to Tokyo! I went to the Philippines for a few weeks in late January/February. I’m thinking we should find a time to get together sometime! We’d have lots to talk about I bet!

      RoxAnn – My husband is president of Texas Cotton Producers and works w/ the NCC too. Maybe we’ll cross paths one day. I used to be able to travel to cotton meetings all the time, but our boys are so busy that my travel is limited currently.

    I’ll self promote here and hope you start reading my Red Dirt in My Soul blog. I’d also like to suggest MontanaForReal and RealRanchers… they are great blogs about ranch life as well!

      Can you give me the full http addresses? I’d love to check them out. I see reddirtinmysoul is linked to your names but would love to see the others as well!

    Janice – I don’t think you have mine up there. It is a hybrid of farming stuff and posts for my mom about her grandsons.

    • Janice September 1, 2010 at 3:27 pm #

      Taken care of! You know I’ve read it several times, even commented and the cotton photos totally rock!

        I am working on the mother of all cotton harvest posts – I’ll tweet when it is up. Lots of cotton!

    Thank you so much for having our family farm blog on this list, JP. My mom works diligently to keep it updated 5x a week. It is a simple way we tell our farm story and truly love connecting with so many people interested in our farm. We love your blog too!

    • Janice September 1, 2010 at 3:29 pm #

      Yep! I mentioned the pinto bean harvest you guys did in the blogging session at ACFC10! Love your blog!

    Hey Janice,
    I found you, and I’m glad I did. I’m small time on a blog compared to you. You are one of the inspirations to keep me blogging.
    I was wondering about the age of those who blog on ag. At 57 I would bet I’m one of the older ones. I do this for my kids and their friends. That and I love a good argument once in a while.

    • Janice September 13, 2010 at 11:35 pm #

      I think we’re all small time blogs… lets us have fun while telling stories we really care about. Inspiration goes both ways too! If I was doing this for money it would probably change everything!

      You may have a point, a lot of bloggers are younger than me too, but I have some friends who have parents blogging that may have you beat if we’re looking for the oldest. Hmmm…. Maybe I just got my next poll idea. Will work on it later this week!

    I’d love to be included in your farm blog list. My blog is Kim’s County Line: Commentary and Camera Clicks from a Kansas Farm Wife: http://www.kimscountyline.blogspot.com It’s a combination of farm life, photos, recipes and life in general. I’d love to have you stop by! I have already checked out several of the blogs you have listed, and I truly appreciate the resource!

    I like blogs which add a touch of personal experience in their content. I’m not saying that I don’t like information blogs but usually it is more joyful to read about the lively experiences.
