What's In A Name?

"I'm going to write a blog!" I announce to anyone that will listen. I have always had this deep-down desire to write. This will be easy, I say to myself. Now what shall I name it? I want to go with something farm-related. I have lived on a farm all my life, after all. Holy Cow, Milk It For All It's Worth, 'Til The Cows Come Home... all great titles. Apparently so, because they have already been chosen by other bloggers. Sigh... I have it, the perfect title,  Cow Tales And Other Tails. Taken! Sigh... My daughter, Sara suggested "Chicken Coop to Cow Poop" since I grew up on a farm which not only included dairy, but also 6,000 chickens. Not quite the persona I am going for Sara. Sigh... My son Michael, obviously the more practical one, suggested "The Milky Way, the Udder One." Taken, sort of. Copyright issues? Maybe? Jail time or a stiff fine? No thanks. Sigh...

Last week, while helping my husband John with our evening routine of milking cows, it came to me, "My Barnyard View; news, moos, and reviews." I want to blog about how I see the world, on and off the farm. I want to blog about news affecting farmers and the consumers that we satisfy with our delicious dairy products. I want to review recipes, books, you name it, I might write about it. It's my point of view from "My Barnyard View." Happy sigh!


  1. AWESOME! Clever title too. Can't wait for the next installment!

  2. Don't you just love it when the light comes on and you "got it?" Nice job "getting" the title for your blogspot. I'm already waiting for more writings from your Barnyard View.

    1. Thanks for the kind words about my title. I hope you are enjoying my posts. I'm always open to suggestions for topics, if you have any farmish, countryish, cowish ideas.
