I’ve been waiting to tell you to make sure I wasn’t going to fail the first day and have to take it all back, but I’m excited to announce– I’ve started a new job!
I’m writing blog posts for an agricultural news website called AgWired.com, specifically their Precision site. I even have a title: Co-editor of Precision.Agwired.com. 🙂 It’s been such a long time since I’ve had any title but Mommy! I was pretty nervous at first about how I would juggle yet another ball in the chaos that is our lives, but I’m liking it a lot.
They use they same platform for their site that I do here on Daddy’s Tractor, so I changed the color of the dashboard on my AgWired site (it’s melon and orange, so fun!) to make sure my Mommy brain doesn’t do something crazy, like post about baby chicks on their professional news media page!! The work is so different though, I doubt there will be much cross-over– at least on purpose! Yesterday I read press-releases from the parent company of Case IH about who will be sourcing tires for their new cart, from National Corn Growers Association and a letter they sent to Congress about the EPA, and another from two cooperatives that are joining together to make a new one. Since the readers are from the field of agriculture (pun intended 😉 ) I don’t even have to write out those acronyms. Very different!
And even though you didn’t hear from me much last week, I’m hoping this new job will help me make this an even better blog. I should be learning lots!
