Join me...and Earnest, and Pickles and other dreamers and goofballs

I'm having fun building the Patreon site. It feels like I'm building something new and fresh. The blog will remain as an archive of the farm [posts going back to 2005] and I will keep the sidebar links up to date [which of course I doubt you can see on a phone].

I've left a few public posts up at Patreon, so you can get a brief glimpse of what supporters get on a weekly basis.

One of the ongoing stories over at Patreon that I'm excited about is "Bucket & Pig" which will mesh the animals into the history of our 1760 farm. I've just posted the intro and am working on the first story. Bucket is an old, leaky bucket, tossed into the burn heap back in the Civil war era. He survived by being buried deep and did not fade away from the elements. Imagine the things that Bucket knows.

I love my blog. I have been very loyal to it since 2005. If you follow along, you know I've gone back and forth on what to do with it as readership shifts to social media [at least for my followers]. To be honest, I feel...free. Even though I have very few followers on Patreon, as I just launched it, I don't care! I am having fun exploring new ways to share story-like audio. I am learning about recording and have big ideas about incorporating voice over actors, or creating my voice characters. I don't know if it will be a podcast at some point. For now I can post videos and audio along with written story entries. {By the way, today the podcast I did with The Maine Conversation is live, it was recorded as we sat amongst the animals}

So there you have it. I hope you'll consider subscribing to my Patreon. No matter what, I'll be writing and  story telling there and am putting my heart into it, just as I did here for what is almost twenty years of sharing story and so much more.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
