Where is all BeganChickinBoots really did begin with just a few chickens. In 2014 my family and I decided to add some chickens to our backyard and I thought it would be fun to blog about our adventure.
My then 5-year-old daughter took an interest in my blogging and started writing a weekly blog about raising chickens. Anyone remember The Junior Blogger? Her blogging skills for a Kindergartner were on point and she was even noticed by the popular blogger Lisa Steele at Fresh Eggs Daily!
Here are a few of her popular blog posts:
In additional to The Junior Blogger and I blogging weekly about chickens, I was also taking daily photos for social media of my then 3-year-old with our overly friendly Buff Orpington.
Many of you enjoyed these photos and told me to write a children's story which led me to Chicken Boots and my daily wacky ChickinBoots memes! I hope you have enjoyed our journey as much as we have and I am super excited for what's in store for the future!
