Today is Twinkydink and Edwina’s birthday. They’re eight!
Today is also my blog’s birthday. I started writing about my hens in this space seven years ago and I haven’t stopped. I’ve added a few more characters along the way – the Beast, the goat boys, the dogs, and others. I’ve written about my garden and the flowers in the woodland. I’ve kept it all focused on this small world in my small backyard. Some days I’ve put up two posts, and yet there’s a backlog of tales for the telling. I thank you all joining me on my travels here in my backyard.
I also thank you for your support. This website started out as a way for me to promote my published books.The economic reality of traditional publishing is that I am far from able to make a living at it, and in fact it hasn’t even paid for the cost of running the cams. Meanwhile, my blog and answering your queries have become a full-time job. It’s one that I love and want to continue to do. That’s why I finally put GoogleAds up on my web pages and have asked you to buy me a cup of coffee. You’ve responded! I celebrated by going to a bakery in Chinatown and buying this… teapot cake? coffee pot cake? Whatever!
