Jack – arguably the best blogger in town – is celebrating the 9th birthday of The Western Word today – congratulations! Go say hi and help him blow out the candles.
A neat blog titled simply “Montana For Real.” The author, Kari, blogs from “North Central Montana” and says this:
I started writing because I thought it would be cool if someone who’d really been there told stories about ranching and rodeo. Now I write a newspaper column and novels about life and love for 21st century cowgirls and cowboys. I’d like to share my Montana with you. Here’s what it looks like when you’ve been looking at it your entire life.
Among the highlights I’ve seen so far: in the kitchen, ranch life, and livestock! Good stuff – go say hi!
