An Introduction

I’m going to briefly introduce myself here, as it feels rude not to do so. My name’s Will, i’m 38, and i’m a Farmer, Husband, and Father of 4 little Girls currently aged between almost 1 and just 6.

I’ve thought about starting a blog for a while now. I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s a particularly boring form of mid-life crisis. Some men buy a Harley, some run off with  their 19 year old Secretary, and some start a blog. Well i don’t have a motorcycle licence, i’m crazy in love with my Wife, and well, i’ve always fancied writing something.

I’ll be honest with you. I’m nervous about this. VERY nervous. It feels like i’m putting myself out there. Leaping outside of my comfort zone. Exposing myself, if you will.

Well anyway, i’m going for it, and here it is.

Mostly i’ll be writing about my life on our Family’s farm, the every day adventures of raising 4 little Girls here, and the life lessons i’m learning along the way. I may also throw in an occasional post on running, history, or my undying love for Bruce Springsteen. I haven’t decided yet. Which in an odd way, is kind of exciting for me.

Throughout my life i’ve generally  been a slow starter, though i like to think i usually get there in the end. So i hope to greatly improve these blog posts as i go along. Please bear with me in the meantime, and maybe, just maybe,  i can make you laugh a little along the way..

  1. I look forward to reading your blog Will. Better to be a slow starter than a non-starter. Four little girls will fill your heart with love and keep life very very interesting.


  2. Looking forward to reading your blog Will, I love to see more farmers blogging. Agree, it’s daunting at the start and it can even be hard to get back into it after a break (I took a break this summer due to book writing and struggled getting back to it) but it’s a great way to advocate as well as being hugely enjoyable for the blogger and the readers.
