About.com’s gardening coverage just got a lot better

Sure, I’ve been known to pick on the New York Times-owned megasite About.com, but I’m happy to report the very good news that they’ve chosen Colleen Vanderlinden of In the Garden Online as their organic gardening expert.  Congratulations, Colleen – you deserve it – and kudos to the folks at About for A, recognizing that organic gardening needs to be covered and B, having the good sense to choose Colleen.  We can all sleep soundly, knowing that SHE won’t be touting the wisdom of Jerry Baker.

    Thanks Susan and Michelle! I know I’ll have my pals here on Garden Rant keeping me honest, too 😉

    You mean I shouldn’t publish that piece I just wrote about Jerry Baker’s miracle anti-grub spray? Damn…

    (j/k, of course!)

  3. I agree, they made an excellent choice. Congratulations, Colleen! Now I’ll actually read an about.com post or two.

    Good news! I’ll check About as well as In the Garden Online.

  5. Colleen will be a great asset to About. Congratulations and I hope the opportunity is everything you want it to be.

    When you become Queen of Everything, maybe you could try to do something about their advertising being so intrusive.

    Looking forward to seeing your byline.

    No Jerry Baker? The Jack Kevorkian of the gardening world? (All that spraying and tobacco juice.) Here I must insert the word “allegedly,” I suppose.
