I’ve been getting lots of feedback on our Flock Giveaway and doing a lot of thinking. So many people have commented or emailed me that they really want to enter our giveaway but don’t have the technology skills to make and upload a video. I feel like such a jerk for just assuming that anyone could do this, because the ability to post a video on YouTube has exactly nothing to do with whether or not you’d make a good shepherd, you know?

So, in the interest of fairness, I’m changing things up a little bit. Entries can be in the form of a short video or a written essay. Essays should be short, no more than a few paragraphs, telling me why you’d like to win a flock of sheep and a little bit about your farm. Pictures are encouraged! Because I know that writing these things can be daunting, I’m extending the deadline for all entries to Sunday, January 23, 2011.

So sharpen your pencils and get to writing! And GOOD LUCK!
