Last week while in class Dairy Carrie Skyped in to our class and talked with us about how she got into dairy farming and blogging. It was really interesting to hear her story of how she really got started. She grew up in Madison, WI, with no agricultural experience. She married into a dairy family and has been doing it ever since. They live on a typical dairy farm in Wisconsin, around 300 acres and 100 head of cows. Carrie actually got the social media while promoting a lingerie line she had online. When she sold her online store, she started, DairyCarrie.com, blogging about the agriculture life and dairy farming. She wanted to make sure that people were informed with the right information
It was so interesting to hear her tell us what we’ve had drilled into our heads since the beginning of this PR and Marketing class, just be real and tell your story. The more genuine you are, the more likely people will be to read what you have to say. Looking at Carries blog, you can definitely tell what she is passionate about and that she really just wants to inform others on different agricultural topics.
Hopefully as I get better at this blogging thing, I’ll get the hang of it and be able to better express myself through words and blogging.
