memo

Forgive me if I get overzealous (read: obnoxious) at the beginning of this project - I'm just really excited about it.
I wanted to share with you a few of the things I've been thinking - plans, if you will.

I'm excited for us (and others) to be linked together. I personally would love to join Urban Homesteaders someday, but I am eons away from that. This group was a nice middle-ground --er, beginning ground, and I thought it would be nice for us to be able to look to eachother (all in one place) for tips and project ideas.
I wanted to share with you a few of the things I've been thinking - plans for the site, if you will.

I thought at first that I would just post a couple of info things, and leave the blog as it was, aside from updating the members, but now I've had a different thought.

I am quite certain that I'll be visiting all of the blogs in this list on a daily basis (since I do, anyway :) ) but I realize that not everyone else will, necessarily.

What I'd like to do I think is when someone writes a particularly great post (whether it be about unschooling/homeschooling, gardening, discoveries in nature, farming, playin' in the mud, whatever) is write a note here to draw attention to it.
For instance, Tara at Heartschooling has a blog about Sustainable Living. She posts new ideas every Sunday. (I'm waiting to hear if we can add it to the list - but no pressure, Tara!)
or
Make sure you visit so-and-so - she made yougurt yesterday, and tells how easy and delicious it was.
Or, :), Shelby the Goat had babies!!!
I'm half kidding about that, but you see what I mean.

So I think that I shall put in posts sometimes, after all.

I don't intend to use this for writing my own stories - I think my two (blogs) have me covered, but just little snippets of everyone else's stories and moments.
Or a mention of a great new find.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for how you would like to see things progress, feel free to speak up.

Thanks, everyone!
Steph

Sounds great! I like highlighting certain blog posts. It will draw light and save time. This sounds like it will be a great beginning. I am excited and feeling even more challenged (in a great way) to be more gren and sustainable.-K
