#agedu365

Blog Post created by Matt Eddy on Jan 27, 2015

Maybe your twitter-less or maybe you hung the moon online.  Either way -- maybe you have heard about the hastag - #farm365.

 

If not - quick synopsis -- started with the idea of posting about farm life all year round -- a great thing.  Hijacked (for lack of a better term) by those who would be listed as not being as interested in farming life year round.  (Activists) -- and so it begins.

 

The way I look at it -- any publicity is good publicity and the opportunity to tell our story is too good to pass up and too important to be lost in the noise.

 

So -- my new years resolution ( a little late, but better late than never) is to post once a day about the life of an Ag teacher on twitter -- all year around. Hence --  #agedu365

 

I would invite the 3 of you (maybe more, if I include my parents) that read these blog posts regularly to join with me in sharing our profession as 'the Ag Ed world turns'.

 

Today we went to the FFA Legislative Symposium and had a great day advocating for our profession.  Maybe that's what jarred my thinking.
