My area is not rural or off the beaten path.  I do blog about local activities however to too much as I do not want that to dilute my site or get calls on farmer's markets or wine and craft events.

I'm sure that question made sense when you typed it, but....sticks -bricks-daily chores...huh?

I'm assuming you are asking either do you need or do we have a lifestyle blog? If so, yes....but I'd proof read it

Quiet natural wildlife corridor with hoot owls at night and song birds during the day. Small group of neighbors practice pride of ownership. Live close to everything but far away at the same time because of choice location. Mountain paths, hiking and biking plus large park all beckon. Learn to relax and not just drink your coffee but smell it too. Roses are next
