Welcome one, Welcome all to the brand new blog of a nerd farmer. I’m really excited to be re-launching my blogging career. I’ve taken the step up from blogspot, to join the ranks of wordpress users the world over. I obtained my own domain in an attempt to appear professional and be easier to find. I now own my very own website. Very exciting!
So, what am I doing? In short, I’m a nerd who is becoming a farmer. After completing a Degree in I.T. and working for 2 years in the corporate world as a web developer, I’m leaving the not-so-big smoke of Adelaide and returning to the farm I grew up on to try my hand at farming. I’ll be working on our family farm, learning the ins and outs of what it takes to be a farmer in 2010. I’m doing this for many reasons, which I’ll elaborate on more later on.
I’m really excited about the possibilities of both my new life on the farm and this blog. In time I hope to be able to share the experiences of learning to farm. I want to show what working on a modern farm looks like. Country life is often misunderstood by the majority of the population that doesn’t live it. You can find out a little bit more about me on my ‘About‘ page. My aim is to challenge stereotypes, be thought provoking and explore the issues I encounter as a new farmer.
You will be the judge on how well I do all these things. So if you wish, update/ add me to your favorite RSS Reader, check back here from time to time, and leave a comment if you have something to contribute.
Finally, what do you think of the theme/ layout of the new site? I’m still new to this wordpress thing, so any tips/ advice would be much appreciated!
