Hello! If you are here for the first time because of the DRAFT Magazine article (and since I never really used this space very much before, you probably are) welcome! We’re happy your here.
If you’ve read said article, then you know the broad strokes of our story. It’s a long story, it doesn’t really fit just one place I guess. Here’s a bit of an online list of where you can find some of the pieces.
If you’d like to know more about Liam, and our family’s journey through the NICU and PICU, as well as learning to navigate home life with complex health care needs, you can poke around at my blog, PressureSupport.com. You could also give a listen to the latest episode of the podcast The One In A Million Baby, which I was a guest on and explained a good deal about our family situation.
The Blog is what led to the Twitter feed which is why my handle there is @PressureSupport. I don’t tweet much lately. I’ll jump in and out from time to time, but ultimately it’s not my thing. I did snatch up the handle @olsonandsonhops but it doesn’t get used. I think it’s only tweets are from when I post here and so, yeah. It never gets used.
Now instagram is where the Olson & Son Hopyard lives. It was integral in us becoming what we are today. I wish my activity here was what I do on instagram because it can be very limiting in telling the stories I want to tell about the things I photograph. I do think that if the WordPress App were more user friendly on iphone I probably would use this space the way I use instagram to tell our story. Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is that if you really want to know whats going on in the day to day here at the hopyard, Instagram is where you can do that.
I don’t have a facebook. Never have. I know. The thing is, I think I probably should open a hopyard page there. But I would rather be out in the yard working a shovel than sitting with a laptop. As you can see above, I already play on instagram far more often than I should. Please, someone comment below and tell me that I don’t have to have a facebook page to run a small business that depends on social media.
And then there’s this space. I still don’t know how to effectively use this space but I’m jumping back in, because why not? Working with DRAFT came about through the instagram page, but it also reminded me that I’m not particularly terrible as a writer and why not keep sharing my season with blog stories of our work. It’s gotten me this far.
So . . . Welcome.
Thank you for coming by.
