A Thank You an Apology and an Announcement

Thank You!

We started this blog shortly after purchasing our land in 2014. We invested much time and effort in this new experience and experienced some positive results from it. A couple of years ago we experienced some unexpected employment chaos and for a short period cut most of our external time and financial expenses in order to keep our lives on track.

Since the reinception of our blog earlier this year we once again put a lot of effort into making this a quality and informative blog. Our readership numbers returned and even saw some growth. Anyone involved in maintaining a blog knows that it requires dedicated time and effort to keep one growing. My short term goal has been to keep the site views at about 400 consistently and we saw this happening in July and August. When I checked the report for September I was blown away. We received 724 views from 280 visitors! I want to thank everyone for your help in growing this site.

An Apology

So, with the wonderful results in September, a traditional blogger would try to capitalize on the sudden growth. I admit my shortcoming in that regard and do offer my apologies for not adding much content in October. Perhaps the following announcement will help to explain the slowdown.

An Announcement

We, Whirl’d Works Farm, have upped our “game” this year and began participating as vendors at a couple of festivals. We enjoyed them for many reasons and learned far more than we expected. We made the decision a couple of months ago to become a vendor at a much bigger venue. We are officially going to be a vendor at the 2019 Kid-n-Ewe Fiber Festival in Kerrville, Texas from November 8-10.

Due to this committment we have been very hard at work behind the scenes to develop and create far more inventory than we have ever done. It is because of this huge effort that I haven’t given as much attention to the blog.

We are closing on our target so I wanted to get the word out that yes, we are still here and that we hope to meet you in person in November at the Kid-n-Ewe Festival!

  1. This would be so much easier to read if it were black rather than pale gray. Have a successful time at Kid’n Ewe!

    • Thank you for your feedback Jean! I do agree with you. I love this template and have not yet found a way to change the text color. If I do it will definitely be changed to black.
