Community Champion at Buffer 🙂 When I’m not connecting with amazing community members, you can find me writing, reading or blogging about my urban homesteading adventures with 15 chickens, four ducks, two dogs and a horse.

  • Super useful post Nicole. Thanks for sharing. Wish I could add all the books in my Kindle easily and all these blogs to my Feedly.
