Back in August I had a little conversation with a former colleague at The Derrick and News-Herald. Anna Applegate and I worked together for about four years and we both wrote blogs for the paper's website and companion website Venango Extra.
We both loved writing these blogs.
Anna's blog was called A Walk in the Woods and featured her adventures with her animal gang as well as a lot of information about local wildlife, plants and water, weather trends and featured her photography. She left the paper before I was laid off and then began sharing her photographs and writing her posts, often much shorter, on social media.
So in August, without any money to offer her, I asked if she wanted to write a blog and I'd do my best to get it out there through Eight & 322. Anna indeed took this serious and has produced at least a blog a week since then.
She change the name of her blog to The Nature of Things and ends each post acknowledging that life just happens the way it wants to and that is just natural.
She has talked about everything from Elk to floating frogs. Dog shenanigans and goat head butting also gets mentioned a lot.
She is a gifted researcher, writer and photographer,
Please check out Anna's blog The Nature of Things here and share it around. She is quite good about coming up with a new topic each week and gives us great inforamtion about the critters amoung us.
