Who would actually read these silly blog posts

Milly is amazed that I’d be willing to maintain a blog. I’m usually a very private person and hate revealing anything about myself. “How can you publish our dirty laundry to the world?”

I usually counter by saying “who in the world is going to actually read these posts?” Maybe a few close friends and acquaintances will spend a few obligatory minutes to see what is going on with us.

Well, I’m almost changing my mind regarding the widespread readership this blog has.

Don’t get me wrong. The Simple Farm blog is not one of the top 10 blogs of all time. But increasingly more often than not I have people say to me “I love your blog.”

It’s surprising that I have any readership at all seeing that I’m a guy. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the applaud, incredulous, snicker “A dude blogger?”

I am also usually surprised that anyone would actually find my random thoughts entertaining. But none the less thanks everyone for the support.

Comments are always appreciated and I love to hear when a long lost friend has followed us from afar. I’ve even heard Milly occasionally give out the link to The Simple Farm.

Maybe this isn’t one of the top 10 blogs of all time but I would guess we must have cracked the top 10 homestead/farming blogs written by a dude.
