[Dibs on the word "agroblogosphere]. Thanks to some fellow reader-bloggers, John's World has been added to an aggregation of international farm blogs. As soon as I'm done traveling, I'll dig deeper into Farmblogs - or you can go on ahead.
Hi there John, from Ian in France,
Sorry to be a bit off topic here but.....
The reason I’m writing is because I am a big fan of farmers’ blogs, and I got frustrated at spending too much time trying to find good ones and then forgetting to bookmark them.
So, I’ve started http://www.farmblogs.blogspot.com
The idea is simple. I ask farm bloggers I like to recommend bloggers they like; I then write to those that they have recommended, as I am writing to you, and ask you to send me a brief description of your blog, and the farm blogs that you recommend.
You were recommended by Marianne at Northview Diary.
I’ve put a link to you on http://www.farmblogs.blogspot.com. (If you can do the same for http://www.farmblogs.blogspot.com that would be great.)
All I ask is that you send me a brief email to info AT ianwalthew.com with a few words about your farm, your blog AND your own favorite farmers’ blogs.
I then make a brief posting, add your recommendations, contact the blogs you recommend, and so it goes.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
P.S This is a no-advertising, entirely for fun, world-wide community driven blog. I also do regular news postings on world agriculture of all types.
One reason I like to link often to my info sources is this phenomenon - the weaving of an information net that multiplies our abilities.
More later - but now off to ORD and South Dakota to talk to Sunflower Growers.
