So, I started a blog. I did a lot of thinking before deciding on a domain name. After a long night of tossing and turning this one just stuck. I love everything Pioneer Woman. I would be her if I could. My life is so not Pioneer Woman. In fact, it is the opposite of Pioneer Woman.
I don’t live on a ranch. I do have three chickens and two dogs nestled into the backyard of my 1970’s suburban lot. The chickens lay eggs at their convenience. The dogs defend their territory with great enthusiasm. And although my husband has threatened to bring home a cow or horse or goat, it hasn’t actually happened. Our neighbors might report us to the city.
I don’t do a lot of fancy cooking. I used to love to cook. Somewhere along the way I got burned out. I occasionally get inspired by an episode of The Pioneer Woman cooking show and have attempted many of her recipes over the years. Some more successfully than others. My version of chicken and dumplings is pretty darn good and my potato skins seem to be a hit.
I don’t have a brand. But if I did, I would hope I had the intelligence to promote and market it as successfully as The Pioneer Woman. I must admit, I am jealous of her business savvy. She is one smart cookie. No pun intended. I have often admired her product line at the local Wal-mart. (Hint, hint, my family. Christmas is just around the corner.)
What do I hope to accomplish with this blog? Before starting this I did some research on the internet about blogging. One site had five basic areas that interest readers the most:
- Solve a problem
- Relieve fears
- Learn something new
- Reach a goal
I’m not sure I know what my niche is just yet. I intend to let things evolve naturally. I may find I have something of value to offer during the evolution. As a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a full time working woman, I should be able to contribute something beneficial to the blogging world.
In closing, for Veteran’s Day today, I would like to thank all the military veterans for their service to this great country. Thank you!
If you took the time to read this, Thank you!! May we meet again soon.
