young farmers grow a blog

The American Farm Bureau, another alumnus of our blogging workshops, has launched a blog authored by young farmers and ranchers. We've long advised membership organizations to train and engage young members in communications, and this blog offers another great example. Thirty farmers and ranchers participate, representing views from 17 states from New Hampshire to California. And while some of the posts are long ones, you quickly realize that these bloggers have their hands full with lots of other tasks--and probably want those blog posts to count. They're tackling topics that range from legislative issues to giving readers a window on life on the farm. Check out this ambitious group blog as another example of how the form can work for your membership organization.
