And I found out some things about garden bloggers: they are the best!
They are the most generous, enthusiastic, sweet, and caring bunch of internet friends I think anyone could find in any of the blogging categories. I guess we're used to nurturing plants, so we instinctively nurture other bloggers, too.
Do you want to connect to other garden bloggers?
If you want to get your garden blog noticed, memes are a great way to start participating. A meme is just a question or topic that is linked to different posts or blogs relating to that particular topic. You add your post to the link provided. It's like an internet party! If you're a new garden blogger, I would encourage you to join in some of the great memes offered. There are many, and each has its own theme. Just be on the lookout for them. They all have cut off dates, so if you find an active one, and you want to write a post about that topic, jump in! All are great to participate in. I don't join in many, but I love the support and camaraderie of the ones in which I do participate.
