Blogging again…

Irene Kightley La Ferme de SourrouI started this blog in 2006. It’s a collection of text and photos of everyday events here at Sourrou, with lots of information on animal husbandry, keeping poultry, building techniques, off-grid life and so on.

I really enjoyed blogging and kept the blog up to date regularly for over five years but  towards the end of 2010, it, (And the blog I started for the village, “Bourrou Blog”.) was under constant attack by spammers and was attracting unwanted comment from various sources.

At that time, I was also involved in the administration of several forums and one in particular, a French Permaculture Forum took up an enormous amount of my time, particularly in the evenings.

I didn’t have much spare time, so I left the blog on line, removed comments and blocked new ones and thought that soon, I’d get back to blogging….

Time passes so quickly.

Now, seven years later, I was building a website for our farm and I thought it’s a shame not to include all the information that’s in the old blog, so I’ve transferred it into this site and I’m in the process of cleaning it up and updating video links and re-learning all the technical stuff about blogging on a new platform.

There may still be some links missing but I’ll check all that out out slowly but surely and once my creativity starts flowing and I can think of how I can update what I’ve been up to, I’ll start blogging again.
