The Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers that have less than 200 followers. Nominations are made by fellow bloggers and it is a great way to discover new blogs and network.
If you are fortunate enough to be nominated , you must:
- Answer the ten questions that submitted to you.
- Nominate ten other up and coming bloggers.
- Prepare and submit ten questions to your nominees.
- Blog about it! (Nothin’ like being able to toot your own horn).
Below are the questions Colby asked me along with my responses:
Why do you blog?
These days, consumers are buying their dairy products from the grocery store and are wondering where in the heck the product originated from. Not everyone lives in rural America and has the opportunity to meet a local farmer or visit a dairy farm. My hope is to help bridge the gap with my blog.
How did you first become connected to agriculture?
I was born into it! I grew up on my family’s dairy farm where we milked 1500 Holsteins and was active within local 4-H.
If you could visit any period in history, when would it be and why?
Take me back to the 80’s. I’m all about big hair.
What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas. I love decorating, drinking/eating and getting together with friends/family.
If you had to be an animal, what would it be and why?
I would have to go with a dog. Dogs know how to live life; not a worry in the world.
If you could fix one thing about the agriculture industry, what would it be?
Communication. The industry needs to do a better job of communicating with the consumer and marketing our product. We need to explain our methods, share our story and rid the consumer of any fear related to their food.
What does the world need a little more of?
The outdoors! Put down the video game, get off the couch and go outside. A little fresh air and hard work never killed anyone.
If you could pick your own alias or nickname, what would it be?
Hmmmm, I am not really sure. I’m pretty satisfied with what I got going on.
The wonderful thing about Tiggers is….?
They’re bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!?????
What is one piece of advice that you try and live by?
“If you don’t like country music, you’re wrong” – Earl Dibbles Jr.
