Readers, my site about sustainable gardening is live on the Web at last! Take a look at Sustainable-Gardening.com and send me your ideas, feedback, corrections (even typographical – especially typographical). Here’s my About this Site. Use comments here or my email.
- If you’re not already listed on my Sites and Blogs page, send me your URL and tell me where you’re located (even a little bit about you). And naturally I’d appreciate your links back to the site so that Google will start to catch on and readers will find it. (Are links becoming the currency of our era? Hmm.)
- I’m looking for relevant blog posts or comments on each subject to expand the conversation (there’s that Hillary word again). I could take the time to surf all your blogs, but it’s not gonna happen, so please send them along. If you’ve written about the topics I cover or any of the plants I’m writing about or just have some thoughts to add, let me know. Here’s an example of what I’d like to see – only more great links from you guys. (No surprise, it’s the page about lawns.) Let’s show off the great gardenwriting going on in the blogosphere.
- Send your favorite links and books, too.
NEWSLETTER, BLOG, COMBINATION THEREOF?
Tell me what you think. As a reader of a gardening site would you (or would beginning gardeners) sign up for a monthly newsletter? The experts insist on them, you know. On the other hand, I could bring my individual gardening blog into the site and people can subscribe to its feed. Or some combination of the two vehicles? I’d love your ideas.
SUSAN’S PROMOTING WEED&FEED!
Yes, that’s my darkest fear. I’ll try to monitor those Google ads but let me know if one gets by me.
A BLOGGER AND HER BY-LINE
While I’m asking for feedback, what are your thoughts about the use of by-lines on team blogs? I’ve been dithering with them on and off (possibly to annoying effect) and thought I’d settled the problem of friends and family finding my articles when I created an archive on Takoma Gardener of "GardenRant articles". But then a reporter called me to ask about garden coaching and said – I swear – "I was reading about coaching on a site called GardenRant. Do you know anything about that?" Arrgh!! So I’m back to including my name on some posts, but I welcome your ideas about how to identify which Ranter is ranting.
