Why I Want to Blog

"Why would you start a blog?" is a question I've been asked many times. A lot of kids my age don't even know what a blog is or that they exist... Being into social media with Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, I learn a lot about different ways to communicate with other people who share your same interests. 

Lucky for me, my big interest is agriculture. When you ask a stranger out in town what they think of when they hear the word "agriculture" the answer is typically, "Farmers in bibbed overalls" or "Cows, chickens and pigs". What they don't know is that there is so much more to it. The list of jobs in agriculture is endless because no matter the job, it all starts with agriculture. I said farming was a typical answer when asking a person what ag pertains to, and it isn't a wrong answer. It's actually very true. Farming is a huge part of this industry (agriculture).  But farming is more than a man in bibbed overalls with a straw hat taking care of his black and white spotted cows. Women are farmers too and I want to share messages like that of what agriculture really is and get the stereotypical scenarios out of peoples' minds. 

By sharing with you through posts of things that I see and learn out on the farm I hope others learn a thing or two as well.
