It’s been a busy few weeks in the life of this blogger. It can be feast or famine when it comes to attending blog-related events. Sometimes there’s nothing and then other times, as in recently, it seems there’s always something to do and somewhere to be. We’ve been to Stuckey Farm, to check out their new Adventure Acres. We’ve spent time with some of Indiana’s Family of Farmers, to see how and where they farm. We’ve been in Fortville, to see what a treasure this small Indiana town is.

Yes, Elena has been my right-hand gal on several of these recent expeditions. She interviewed a band. She takes pretty darn good photos.
And most importantly, she’s learned to promote with the best of them …. I mean, just look at the fine use of hashtags on Instagram (an account, may I mention, that has more than twice the amount of followers of mine!).
I think it will be fascinating to see what this generation of kids that have grown up in the spotlight of their parents’ blogs will do when it comes to social media. Will they shun it? Will they hate us? Will there be a new area of niche blogging just for them to tell their tales?
I don’t know, but I have a feeling this one will wise up pretty soon and start demanding to be paid for real … as in cold, hard cash, not free chicken nuggets and promotional products. In other words, I have a feeling she’ll be just like her
