Friday, 26th July 2013 // Careers in Cotton, Industry News & Events, About Bess & Andrew

This is it... The last blog post from Bess here at Cotton Australia. So we're looking back over the last year and saying "Thank You"...

Can you believe it's been over 3 years since I started blogging? And it's been 18 months since Cotton Australia first let me share my story and our cotton with you here. It's been a crazy road and this last year has been absolutely epic!

We've had such a great time sharing a couple of floods, a crop from plant to pick, the birth of our son right through to his first birthday, the beginning of our own farming adventure. As well as everything that's come in between.

So, the first and biggest 'THANK YOU' goes to you, our followers! We appreciate every one of you, whether you read one post or all of them. We have loved hearing your feedback and have revelled in answering your questions. This has been such a great experience and it has been an absolute joy to engage and share with you. THANK YOU smile

Next on my list is a massive thanks to the team at Cotton Australia. You guys are doing such an amazing job of promoting and bettering the cotton industry, your work is fantastic and we really appreciate it! Thank you for giving me this opportuinty to share the daily-drill of what we do. And thank you for recognising how fundamentlly important social media is to telling this story and teaching the world about cotton.

My last (and soppiest) thank you goes to my amazing little family. Eddie, you can't read yet, but one day I hope you get to see this. You are a champion. I'm so proud of you already and you are the reason why we do this. Love you smile
Andrew, without you I literally wouldn't be here. I would't be on the farm and I wouldn't be a part of the cotton industry. With you I've found passion for what I do that makes it an absolute joy for me to 'work' every day. I'm so proud of everything you have achieved and for your amazing contribution to the cotton industry. Thank you for letting me share it all with you. XOX. 


We hope you all continue to follow the blog in future as some exciting changes are coming.

Thank you for letting us share our story wih you and we'll be seeing you around!
