My blog has been accepted and listed on Blotanical and I am really happy about that! I have clicked on the Blotancial website in the past and looked around at the different gardening blogs that are listed there. I found myself reading many of the experiences from other gardeners and when I left the site I was content in knowing that there are many others who love to garden and blog about it too! In my most recent visit I decided to create an account and submit my blog – it took a few days, but the email arrived yesterday saying I was accepted … yes! I will be spending more time on the site discovering and reading some good garden talk. If you are listed, let me know and I can favorite your blog! I love all kinds of garden talk and what amazes me is the pictures and stories from different parts of the world – you get a taste of what living there is about and realize that there really is a huge world out there. Thank you Blotanical for accepting my blog … you made my day!
Along the lines of discovering blogs from all parts of the country I came across The Whimsical Bohemian blog last week and seems I stumbled upon this wonderful blog just in the niche of time. You can read more detail about this event that she hosts called One World One Heart which starts January 25th – less than a week away. I plan to participate and am gearing myself up for the fun ahead. The idea behind the event is an opportunity to connect with bloggers from all over the world – you must have an active blog and a gift to giveaway to one winner (or more if you decide) when the event concludes on February 15th. Do check out all the details if you are looking for a fun event where you can meet others from all over!
I also received a program flyer in the mail the other day from the Midwestern Herb and Garden Show announcing the speakers and activities for the 2010 show which is set for February 12 – 14th. We have attended the past 2 years and it seems to keep getting better each year. This year the keynote speaker is Mel Bartholomew, Author of “Square Foot Gardening”. I checked out his website very briefly and noticed he now has a cookbook — so I will be heading back to scope out the contents and read up some more on his theory. We will definitely be in the audience to listen and learn all we can! The whole 3 day event is free and many local vendors will be there sharing their knowledge and goods.
Fun stuff ahead !!!
