Anybody on the forum have a blog that they write about their experiences with bees and daily bee life? I have begun to write one. Just looking for help and examples of good content and strategies. Thanks guys.

I have a blog. It is in need of updating. No one reads it but me and maybe the stores that I sell honey at. I could use some help the the networking aspect of blogging as well as keeping it updated. Mine is the top and below are some others I have found in my travels on the web.

We have had our Blog going for about 6 years: Bessie's Bees (

I also maintain the Blog for our local beekeeping club. This one uses various pages. East Central Iowa Beekeepers (

Good luck with yours--they can be a fun way to keep track of what you are doing with your bees and share your information with others.

I have one that I started this past year. Mainly because I love taking pictures of my bees, and to educate on the good that comes from protecting bees etc, but I do write a little bit. I also plan on doing more with it, but Im slow in getting things done.

I have found David Burns' blog site to be informative.

Great question, BB. I didn't think of looking here for blog examples. I just started mine, basically. Tried last year but ran into issues and have up. Picked it back up. I am not committing mine to JUST bees, but it was The bees that got me thinking to do a blog. They seem to infiltrate my whole life these days. But I'm a cook, and a gardener, and wanted to write about those things too. Still working out some kinks. Finally got people to be able to follow by email, but I get no stats on followers, even though I know I have some. I use Blogger. Wondered if all blogs have those kinds of issues. I checked on the blogs listed here, very nice. I will check back for more info, because I'm just learning like most of you.

One of the best I've read:

She has a lot of good videos and pictures and step by step instructions for the things she has done. She started it when she started keeping bees, so you can follow her entire journey.

Yes, love beekeeperlinda! Also love (, by Rusty. She writes her blog and explains things in a very easy to understand way, no matter what she's talking about. But it is always very clear.

I would recommend Very informative and easy to understand. I like the scientific approach, not to mention that more often than not it is just entertaining to read.

Now I was stoned and stupid in high school and dropped out at 16{dam weed} and since then I have owned 3 restaurants the one I have now is 22 years old and going strong my marriage is 26 years strong and my kid is in BIO. college then med. school. And my bees are healthy and strong:D. I own a 12 acre homestead that's 40% self reliant so being stoned and stupid is ok by me and I will figure out the blog thing.;)

Not really a blog, just basic info for beginners.

02-11-2014, 08:02 PM
Mine is I started it 7 seasons ago, mainly as a diary so I would remember what I did, why I did it and what resulted. I've kept it current.
