Introducing My New Facebook Manager!!

Over the past year or so, I have tackled Facebook head-on with less-than-mediocre enthusiasm.  Despite how many people tell me how great it is, I just have not latched on.  I get on Facebook once every blue moon (or less) and have dedicated the amount of time it takes to squash a bug to learning how it works, with the same type of grimace on my face.

But, ringing in my ears are always the words of my high school volleyball coach, Judy Barnett.  (I’m sorry if you didn’t get to play for her.  She was an icon.  Still is.)

“NEVER SETTLE FOR MEDIOCRITY.” -Judy Barnett

So, in that vein, I hired a Facebook Manager.  What that means to me is that he will pretend he’s me when he writes on The Goat Cheese Lady Facebook page.  He’ll write on it more often…like, every day.  He’ll increase the Likes and increase the Traffic and post pictures and Share stuff and Comment and whatever else he knows how to do.  Which is about 1,000 times more than I know how to do.

And, if he falters with any of these requirements, he’ll have to sleep in the guest room and I won’t make him coffee in the morning.

I run a tight ship around here, you know.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
