Blogging Buddy Ben!

Hi,I am Ben.
I am 10 years old and excited to be able to start blogging with my mom. I attended a presentation in January that talked about Farmers and Ranchers and how they are reaching out to the consumers through the internet with tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Skype and blogging.

Michelle Payne -Knoper taught us that we need to get the consumers' attention. Sometimes people don't have the time to go to a speaker, but they may have the time to send a quick message or ask a question. So, that is when people started using social media to make connections to people that they do and do not know to share information.

It is important for people in agriculture to talk about what they do each day because most people do not know what happens on our farms and ranches and why they are important to our country. Did you know that each American Farmer is responsible for feeding 155 people? Well, it's true! They also work hard to make fuel and clothing and even things like crayons!

The next time I blog with my mom, we will have some facts about some of the cool things I am learning in ND History!
