NEW! Our Simple Homestead Blog Hop #1

Welcome to the Our Simple Homestead blog hop!

For over two years Lisa at The Self-Sufficient HomeAcre has hosted the HomeAcre Hop, but in an effort to simplify her life, she has decided to step down and retire the Hop. I know you'll join me in thanking Lisa for 121 awesome weeks of blog-hopping fun.

One of our co-hosts, Tracy at Our Simple Life, has come forward to lead us on a new hopping adventure. This week is the very first Our Simple Homestead Blog Hop. All of our former co-hosts will continue to bring you the hop each week. The name has changed but the rules are the same; we'll be here every Thursday morning, just we have been for the past two years.

We love seeing your new homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts each week. It's so much fun to read your hints, tips and happenings. I know you'll love exploring all the great ideas that are shared each week on our new hop.

Our Simple Homestead Blog Hop

Our co-hosts are:

Tracy at Our Simple Homestead
Kathi at Oak Hill Homestead
Nancy at On the Homefront
Sandra at Clearwater Farm

Featured Posts

Just like before, I'll continue to feature my favorite post from last week's hop - be sure to link back to the hop so you are eligible to be featured. You can put a link in your sidebar, on your shared post, or on a Blog Hops page like mine.

Each host will feature her own picks from the posts that were linked the previous week. Visit each of our co-hosts' blogs to see if you were featured this week.

Check back next week for my first featured post!

We look forward to seeing what you have to share this week. If you would like to be featured in the future, be sure to link back to the hop.

    Oh wow! The hop has changed. I so enjoyed participating in the HomeAcre Hop and certainly understand Lisa's reasons. I just couldn't keep up with it myself. I look forward to following Our Simple Homestead Hop. I do still stalk y'all. We have 3 Nigerian dwarf does so I do look through your posts on goats and fencing etc. I just don't comment much any more.

    I don't mind if you stalk me, Ann! Congratulations on your ND goats. You know I'm here if you have any questions/problems. NDs are so cute.

    Yes, the hop has changed. It can be a lot of work and I'm sure Lisa was ready for a break. I'm glad you'll keep sharing with us at the new version.

    Yes, the goats are adorable. They of course come with all of those goat challenges, but dwarf

    Dwarf-sized challenges are not a bad thing, Ann. I think about that occasionally when I have to drag Ziva back to the gate after milking... it would be easier if she were smaller! Enjoy that smaller size!
