My name is Kristina, and I’m a part-time employee, wife, and mother of three daughters, two of whom are still at home. Ever since I was little I loved writing and animals; I used to want to be a veterinarian when I was small until I found out there were certain things vets were required to do to treat the animals. And like veterinary medicine I wanted to be a writer or an author when I ‘grew up’, however I don’t remember that being encouraged, so I pursued something I didn’t really have the heart for.

I began blogging recently when I started reading numerous articles about women pursuing and succeeding with their ‘side hustles’ during the pandemic and decided blogging was something I could certainly try, because my passion for both writing and animals has not waned in the least. But why, you ask. Well, we live in such uncertain times right now that, hopefully my efforts are successful, so I can save money to look after my daughters and me down the road.

I have numerous things I’d like to write about, I’ve even written a work of fiction, though it’s unpublished, because I’m still currently working on the prequel. Anyway my most prolific subject right now and the one I will spend more time focusing on is my chickens, although at times I will blog about the other animals we have and recipes.

I would love to hear from other people like me who are where I was when I first started out owning and raising chickens. There’s definitely a lot of hands-on learning involved with backyard chicken-raising, however I gained so much wisdom by reading what other people went through, and I still do! I would also love to get feedback from other bloggers.

If I achieve my goals with my blog I will be extremely happy, because I will be able to continue it and save some money for my girls and our future. I might even start a new blog, one completely unrelated to chickens.
