This is my second blog. Up until a few weeks ago, I had one entitled Bandy's Journey; From Abuse To Trust. It was about my rescue horse, Bandy, and how he was doing since I adopted and began working with him to help him to recover from a past of abuse. I enjoyed doing the blog, and I got a lot of positive response from it. Unfortunately, I didn't realize how limited in scope the subject matter was. Seriously, how many times can you post that you worked with the animal and he did well?
So, after much thought and prayer, I decided to let that blog end. I was hesitant at first, because I didn't want to feel like a failure at blogging. But I have read on many other people's sites that they also had tried several different ideas for blogs, and that many successful blogs like THE SIMPLE DOLLAR came about from their creators having the smarts and courage to move on to a better idea when the first one proved to be unproductive.
And so, dear bleader, I present my second attempt at blogging. I decided to base it upon my lifestyle as a homesteading wife and mom here in the mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma, my observations of life based on my Christian faith, and my practice of Thriftology. Thriftology is what I call a faith based science of frugality. By basing it upon these subjects, I have created a blog that is much broader in scope, and that will give me more creative freedom.
I will continue to post about Bandy, also, for those folks who followed my former blog. I have had several queries about how my little one eyed pony is doing, and I promise he still has several tales to tell.
My postings will be about once a week, since I don't have internet on the mountain, and I only come into town once or twice a week. I am considering writing an entry each day, then putting them all in one week's post. We'll just have to see how it goes.
One thing that I will keep from my first blog is my sign off, since it is still true:
Well, I got chores. Later, Ya'll.
