I started out simply wanting a place to jot down feelings and impressions as I gardened- what I did that day, or just how beautiful a sunset was, or how fragrant and perfect a bloom might be, but then branched into an extension of the garden advice that my website had been centered on. That revived the website in my interests, and the blog now is a place where I stretch myself to try to improve writing, attempt to network with the garden community, and as a reservoir of research I might do when I want to know more of a garden topic or find plant information. In response to other’s requests my blog is now something of a memory book of photos.
The blogging, as well as most of my online activity results from the curiosity I have to try new things. I would probably be a better blogger if I wasn’t so distracted by things that create time pits of experimenting with new forms, tools, and templates.
I find the work of blogging stimulating, and the friends through blogging inspiring. This, and the fact that I am incorrigibly poor at keeping a hard copy journal, is why I blog -in a nutshell.
