Now that you know where the conversation started...it will all make sense. I of course, think Mark needs a website and a blog. I think people would love to hear cute stories about what is going on at the farm today, how the weather is, how helpful the government was with getting a grant, etc...and Mark doesn't think he needs a website/blog/facebook page and thinks that people wouldn't be interested.
So here we are - agreeing to disagree.
What do you think? To blog or not to blog, that is the question (sort of)...
May your paths be abundantly filled with lemons, sugar, sunshine, and just enough difference in opinions to keep life interesting!
