If you’ve been following my writing on the blog, you know I’ve been struggling with the one-sided connection online writing affords.
You likely know I’ve put out a questionnaire for all my readers. If you haven’t taken it yet, I’d be ever so happy if you would!
But that’s not what this post is about.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about those who share my passion for a traditional lifestyle. About the people who believe in homemaking and cooking with real food. The folks who also enjoy raising animals, keeping laying hens, gardening, home canning and the like. Maybe a few of you even hunt and gather as well!
Sometimes, we can feel like the oddball in our modern world. Unless you are lucky and live among like-minded folks, you often stand out as unusual.
Sometimes, we need to know we’re not alone, that there are still people out there who share our values. It’s encouraging to hear of and meet like-minded people.
And so, I’ve decided to start a ‘featured reader’ section on the blog!
How Does It Work?
If you’ve been a follower of mine and have incorporated pieces of a traditional lifestyle into your modern world, you qualify!
I’ve put together a list of questions for you to answer (see form below). Once you’ve filled it out, click submit and it will be sent to my private email address.
Once all the applications are in, I will choose readers to feature throughout the month of October. Folks, I have lots of space, so don’t be shy!
I only ask that entrees send a photo of themselves/their family to the email address I use for blog-related tasks: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A picture makes things personal, which is why I require (at least) one. You are also welcome to include a few photos of your farm, animals, preserving, gardens, etc. All images will be accredited to your name.
When choosing photos, please remember that this blog is family friendly and also open to the public eye. I cannot control who views my site, so only choose images you are willing to air to the world.
All questionnaires must be sent to me by midnight on the 28th of September, 2018. If chosen, you will receive an email giving notice as to when your story will be published.
Provided there are enough entries, I will be “featuring readers” on the blog from the Oct 1st to Oct 28th.
Take the Questionnaire
You can take the questionnaire now! Simply fill out the form and click ‘submit!’ Note: your email address will be kept private!
