Farm-y, Food-y Friday: Creating a multi-dimensional me

For those people who were avid readers of my blog, On the Journey, you may be wondering what on Earth I’m doing with this new, off-the-wall blog that has posts about movies and Broadway and whatever other random thing comes to the top of my head. You thought I was an agvocate, right? A farm blogger. A vocal part of agri-cult-ure. Well, I am.

But I’m also a lot more than that.

I’m a 20-something who’s living in the big city. I love, and have always loved, the performing arts. I have random thoughts that pop into my head that I want to weigh in on.

And those random thoughts aren’t always on agriculture.

That’s not to say I don’t love the business and people who produce our country’s food. I really and truly do. After all, those are the businesses and people I make a living supporting.

However, I want make sure that I’m not portraying myself as a person who only cares about one thing. And that’s why I started this blog. To give myself an outlet for both the agriculture things that I’m passionate about AND all the other things in life that I love.

I’m going to dedicate Fridays to being “Farm-y, Food-y” and all the other days will fill my innate need to just spout off randomness. I’m happier that way and I think (I hope!) my blogging will be more interesting that way.

What do you think?

  1. If an agvocate only talks about agriculture and never gets outside of their at circles are they really agvocating? I have been enjoying your latest blog posts even if I don’t know much about broadway. Hope others take note and reach outside of our little ag niche we tend to create.

    1. Thanks for popping in and reading, Mike! Sometimes I feel like I’m not an extremely strong blogger, usually because my best posts come to me spur of the moment which makes consistent content hard. That becomes especially tough when I feel “trapped” in a only-ag agblog. When I can reach beyond ag, though, and just write about anything, it’s so much more fun and way easier to develop material. My interests are random, so I figure – why not my blog too!? Hope you’ll keep reading – who knows? You may learn something about Broadway!

  2. I love all your dimensions! SO well rounded.

    1. Thanks, Aunt Carey! I do my best 😉

  3. I did the same thing a while ago and have been jazzed by the results. It has made a big difference in how much I enjoy blogging and how much others enjoy reading. 🙂 Looking forward to the same thing here!

    1. Thanks, Janice! So far it’s working well!
