Post slow down

I’m at a point in my blogging career that I am running out of things to post!  Tragic I know. Most of you look at my posts daily. I used to have two weeks scheduled ahead for just such occasions, but they have dwindled down to ..this… no more scheduled posts.

Right now I am at a point where I am focused on learning. That means reading and reading and reading..and not really having time to blog.  I need to make sure that this rotational grazing is all it can be this year.  I need to make sure that turkeys are a good fit and that they don’t costs me more than I can afford.  We are still saving for a house and plan on moving this summer, but I can’t spend if I cant sell and get a profit or at the very least return on my money.

I need this all to work this year because my husband is always skeptical at my new ideas.  I’m tired of it.  I don’t think anything I do is a fail. It is all a learning experience.  How do I know what I want to raise if I don’t try?  I might hate turkeys, but I wont know till I raise them.  How do I know how many of what animal will fit on rotational grazing if I dont try on my little acre before we move?  The new house will have a lot more acres that I will need to manage. I need to know I can do it on a small scale and move on up.  What is the point of making a large investment on a property with a lot of acres if you don’t do anything with that?  I would hate to fail on a larger scale and lose more money!

Sorry..this is more of a rant I guess today.  The point is I am doing more and more research to be sure I can do this.  It is all still very scary to jump into, but I’m still going to try.  My time is being eaten up with reading and researching. I need to get this done before the lambs come in a few weeks.. then a month after all the chicks and turkeys will come..then the garden will come..

I will try my hardest to continue to blog on what I am doing as I am doing it, but just know that my posts will probably slow down to only a few a week.  If you have anything you would like me to post about or any questions, feel free to comment below and I will try to make it a topic of a post for you.  I don’t claim to know everything but I do follow a lot of people who do know a lot   😉

Happy Homesteading!!   😀

    Don’t be so hard on yourself! You are a mommy-blogger not a professional blogger!
    Life comes first.
    You have kids, and a husband, and a home, and animals, and appointments, and meetings, and lessons, and cooking and cleaning and the list goes on for eternity – yet every once and a while you pause to tell us all. We’ll take what we can get, and besides, your posts are never boring.

    here is something to remember….you may find a number of ways how not to do something or things you don’t want to do, but always blog so the rest of us will know lol

  3. I don’t manage to post every day either. However when I don’t have anything to really post I will attempt to post once a week just to say what is going on here. Maybe if you want to keep your blog going you just need to set a definite amount you want to post whether it is per week, or per month. I know for a fact sometimes it’s hard getting to find -something- to post about especially this time of year when there is too much snow do to anything outside. Then during planting and harvest time you never seem to have enough minutes in the day.

    Just take it easy and figure out what is important for you, then add your blog to it at the end.

  4. I have a keen interest in rotational grazing, so I would really like to read about what you are learning. Personally, I only tend to check your blog a couple times a week and get all caught up at once. I do that even on blogs that post daily (sometimes twice daily). I wouldn’t worry too much about not posting daily. So long as what you have to say is interesting, funny, or informative, when you do say it, I’ll be reading.

    • Well i will try to stay interesting, funny or informative..but no guarantee! I am reading right now Salad Bar Beef by Joel Salatin. Rotational grazing is a lot more in-depth than I thought. This man has it down to a science when it comes to cows! I’m going to totally wing it this year since we dont have cows so hopefully what I write is all success lol.
