Last week we reached an amazing 100,000 likes on our Facebook page! And best of all, we did it the old-fashioned way, one like at a time, by sharing good information that people have grown to trust over the past five years. Fresh Eggs Daily has grown larger than my wildest expectations and we owe it all to you: our readers, fans and sponsors.
What started out in January of 2009 as a place for me to share my cute chicken pics, has turned into the largest natural chicken keeping resource on the internet. As I began to realize the interest in, and lack thereof, existing websites and pages focusing on natural remedies and preventives to use in backyard chicken keeping, I began to really focus on that both on Facebook and here on the blog and the response was truly awe-inspiring. Our blog gets more than 150,000 page views each month, with readers coming from all over the world.
So, thank you readers who have been along for the journey. Your notes of encouragement and praise, your stories of how you have tried 'FED-tested' advice and concoctions and how well they worked for you are so greatly appreciated. Telling your friends and neighbors, along with the random guy in the chicken aisle at the feed store, has helped to spread the word about a better, more natural way to raise backyard chickens. So keep sharing!
But we can't forget our generous sponsors. Without their support, not only would we not have had all the fun giveaways over the years, I wouldn't have been able to quit my 'real' job and stay home sharing all that I do. Because I have been fortunate enough to be able to focus on Fresh Eggs Daily full-time, I have been able to turn a hobby and fun past time into a bona fide chicken 'career' which has lead to becoming a freelance writer for numerous magazines and also the publication of my first book.
So please take a moment to browse our sponsors' websites and head over to Facebook to thank them for sponsoring Fresh Eggs Daily. Let the magazines know how much you enjoy reading my articles ... and continue buying my book! Who knows, there might be a second book on the horizon soon!
Fresh Eggs Daily is going strong and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Thanks to the enormous efforts of Yvette and Suzanne on Facebook answering your questions, posting advice, and sharing your photos, and behind-the-scenes constantly on the lookout for fun, creative ideas for our chickens to share with you, we have managed to keep up with the amazing growth.
So thank you all again for your support. It's because of you all that Fresh Eggs Daily is what it is!
BECAUSE LIFE IS JUST BETTER WITH CHICKENS!
I would love for you to join us here too...
