How Homesteading Changes Us
So, for the past few months I have sat down at this computer and started a blog post titled "How Homesteading Has Changed Me." It would include everything from how I think about politics to how I buy clothes. It's a manifesto, really. A long post on how small choices and changes in my life lead to this farm, and how living this unconventional life on 6.5 acres has transformed me in ways I can't even fully comprehend. I think a lot of you can relate, or want to relate. Keep reading because I have a request for you guys to help me get through this. Because every time I sit down to write it, it is too much. Too much. I have not found a way to get it all down in one chunk. I end up writing about something as mundane as driving into town and it becomes 1,000+ words on sock choices and errands. And I know that sounds ridiculous but that is how much this life has changed me. Sock choices matter. Like, really matter.
So I want to write about how things have changed. Topics as varied as vegetarian-turned-meat-farmer to how I vote in elections now. Topics on personal things like dating and being a single woman in a world of mommy blogs and married farm teams online. I want to write about how my opinions have changed on food, clothing, shopping, entertainment, travel, and so much more. But more importantly I want to know what you want to hear about? What questions do you have for someone six years into homesteading that you might anticipate? DO any of these topics interest you? What else would you want to hear about?
