Being new to blog reading and publishing, I had no idea there was a flourishing garden-blogging community on the internet. Soon after starting this blog I looked for other garden blogs, came across a few, started reading and soon started commenting.
Blog writers I'd visited stopped by and visited here. I've been enjoying the unexpected surprise of meeting and getting to know other gardeners through the internet. In the comments on a post here, Mr. McGregor's Daughter suggested I join Blotanical. "Hmm," I thought. "What's Blotanical?" I googled it, checked it out, and joined. Thank you Mr. McGregor's Daughter!
Through blogs whose writers live south of here I've enjoyed watching spring spread slowly north, closer and closer to where I live. I've been inspired by the beautiful gardens, photography, and wealth of experience and knowledge I've found throughout the garden blogging community of Blotanical.
Discovering the wide variety of garden blogs across the USA and throughout the world has been eye-opening. Blotanical's Picks section lists the most recent 200 posts by its members. If I had to pick my favorite part of the site, Picks would it. I've discovered a number of excellent blogs through Picks.
Kudos to Stuart Robinson for dreaming up Blotanical and for all the work he puts into maintaining and growing it.
Now Blotanical is welcoming non-blogging gardeners. If you're a garden blogger (blotanist,) or a non-blogging gardener, and you haven't joined Blotanical, what are you waiting for??? Go on, you know you want to! Head on over to Blotanical, and sign up!
