Branching Out

We’ve created a Facebook page that is linked to our WordPress blog! There will be a few different things posted on the Facebook page that might not show up here on the blog, so it will not be a complete mirror of this site. Please like our Facebook page if you can!

Also, I feel like we should explain the change in our name. .44 Hobby Farm is a little bit confusing because of the first character being a period. I think it also might have given the impression that we own 44 acres instead of only a .44 of an acre! I know though that Josh would love to own 44 acres! I’m not sure we will ever own that much land, especially here in Southern California! So we wanted to change our name to something a little simpler and easier to remember.

Hopefully, next month we will be changing our WordPress site address to the domain name, The Geek Homestead. Only the name will be changing though, not our posts! We will still be posting about our successes and failures in our journey to becoming more self-sufficient.

Why The Geek Homestead? Josh and I love computer games and video games (though with 5 kids, we don’t get to play them so much anymore!  Priorities you know ;), science fiction of most any kind (Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek), board games (Catan and Dominion), and books (we don’t have nearly enough bookcases in our house, but it’s hard to buy more because we don’t have space for them!). We also tend toward technology and science in the extra-curricular portion of our homeschooling.

Thank you so much to all our readers and followers! You have all been an inspiration to us. We really love the community we have found at WordPress and look forward to being around for quite a while!
