What do you end up with when you have a herd of seven donkeys and a longear loving blogger who carries her camera everywhere? A lot of extra donkey photos. And since I know many of you are longear lovers, too, I came up with an idea for a new Farmgirl Fare feature that I think is going to be a lot of fun. I'm calling it The Daily Donkey.
The idea is simple—which is why I'm pretty confident that it actually is going to be daily. Each day I will post one random, previously unpublished donkey photo from the files I've been amassing over the years. It might have been taken last week, or it might have been from back in 2007. I'll tell you who it is and when it was taken. No clever captions, no newsy copyright notices, just down and dirty donkey cuteness. Every single day.
In order to keep the homepage and the RSS/e-mail subscriptions from being taken over by jacks and jennets, I'm going to corral all The Daily Donkey posts back in their own section of the archives (which is why they'll be dated 2005). Each day's 'regular' Farmgirl Fare post (dose of cute, farm photo, etc.) will include a link at the bottom to the current Daily Donkey.
If there is no regular post that day, or if it's a recipe post, then The Daily Donkey photo will appear on the homepage. At least this is the plan. I may have to do some tweaking once we get started.
The new Daily Donkey navigation tab at the top of the page (up there by the About Me, Subscribe, Contact, FAFQ, and Recipe Index tabs) will take you to The Daily Donkey index, which will have links to all the Daily Donkey photos in one handy spot. Need a quick donkey fix? Just click on that tab.
I'm really excited about The Daily Donkey, and I hope you are, too. Your feedback is always greatly appreciated (how else would I have known how popular the donkeys are?), especially as I fine tune this new feature. Oh, and don't worry—I'll still be including plenty of current donkey photos in the farm photos and doses of cute.
Okay, are you ready to launch into donkey madness? Then let's start things off with one of my favorite donkey snapshots (just click on the link below), taken in September 2009 but never posted because I couldn't come up with a fitting caption. How lame is that? I'm loving The Daily Donkey already.
