Her contest, the Great-Get-To-Know-You-Give-Away, is a crazy bit of fun, where she asks a new question each day and your answers, along with everybody else's, help us to all get to know each other a little bit better. The give away part is that each answer, as well as some random, quirky tid-bits, decided upon at her discretion, is an entry into a draw. She's giving away a hammock. This hammock!
I've decided that I'm going to answer one of her questions over here, in the tractor. The question posed was this:
What is your favorite place/ time/ mindset for blogging?
The most efficient place for me to blog is cooped up in our office in front of our big desk top computer. Some days, nice days, I find it's hard to force myself to sit in there and be creative when I have things to do outside. Usually, if I'm there, it's early morning or late at night. But, I do blog from other places. I've blogged off my phone from the seat of a tractor but that proved to be more of a challenge than I thought. I've blogged from a picnic table while camping, from my wife's old hand me down tiny notebook, using my phone as a modem. I've blogged from the deck that way too.
I quite like blogging from there with a coffee in the morning, except it seems to always be raining here lately and my ass keeps getting wet from the damp cushions. And sometimes, I blog from the love seat, my wife and I share in front of the television.

I have to be sitting comfortably to blog, I tried to write this post in bed last night. After about 20 minutes of trying every position conceivable, I finally just gave up. (much to the relief of my wife as I am pretty sure she was just about to exile me back to the office so she could finally get to sleep!)
Lately, I haven't really had the proper mindset for writing down my thoughts. I'm starting to get a little concerned about this rain that seems to continue everyday. I've got lots of farming things to get done and the rain isn't helping too much. I keep having fleeting thoughts of ideas that would make a good post but unless I jot them down immediately, they seemed to get lost in the wasteland of my mind. Really, I am trying to get back into the swing of things and post a bit more.
There's still a week to go in her contest. I'd like to encourage you to stop over at her site and say hi. Maybe answer a question, maybe leave one for her to answer? Even if that means the odds of having my name drawn to win become a little less. It doesn't really matter. I've already got the spot picked out I'm going to put that hammock anyways.
.........I'll let you know how comfortable it is.
