Why check the farm?
facebookers, raise your hands. How many hours do you spend a day reading about your friends, searching for new friends and AHA playing that game, the most popular game on the web, Farmville? There are farmville fan clubs, groups, pages, and the list goes on and on. With a point and a click, voila, you can till your garden, feed the chickens and raise your barn. How fascinating that so many people are interested in farm life. Well maybe these same people might like to see a glimpse of "real farm life" sprinkled with a dash.... This is where youtube comes into play. Sprinkled with a dash of humor. How many of you love to watch funny cat videos? Inspiring dog videos? Or simply goofy videos all together? Sign me up. I will always re post or forward an e-mail of a video that either makes me laugh or cry. Isn't it nice to be sitting at your desk working hard and receive a video about a cat playing the piano A.K.A. "keyboard cat" that lets you escape for awhile before getting back to the daily grind? And the last ingredient, an essential one I might add is the farm itself. If you are going to do a show and call it check the farm you need a farm. This is where my family and friends were able to step up to the plate and give a hand. Now this has been the icing on the cake for I get to spend more time with them and I also get to be outdoors in nature which is always good for the soul. Have you ever seen an article written that advises you to stay out of nature for it could be dangerous to your health and overall mental well being? So farmville, youtube and my friends and family's farms and there you have it tada... check the farm. But what about the website, the editing, the promoting, setting up a company, the filming, etc., etc. Aaah well, Esteban and I have never done a web series so we just jumped in and said let have fun, hopefully make people laugh and at the same time learn a thing or two about farm life and most importantly TRY. Try something new. You may not be an expert but remember experts weren't born with the letter E etched on their forehead's. They worked it. We are working at it. We are a work in progress. Aren't we all a work in progress? How many of you don't try something new for you are afraid you won't be any good, people will judge you or you will FAIL. How can you fail if you try. So try. When I was a little girl my father used to say "Can't never did and can always tried" So be a can and see what you can do. See what is hidden inside of you. You never know until you try.
