Gosh, it’s been over a month since I’ve posted here on the website. How terrible of me. I began this website with such great intentions…I’ll post 5 days a week, I’ll incorporate a podcast occasionally, I’ll interview people about all of the great things that are going on in the gardening world. And instead, I’ve only posted once in the past month. Sigh.
At my full-time job, I took a personality test and the test results concluded that I was a “poet”. That sounds pretty romantic, huh? But a poet doesn’t really describe my personality…the haiku is the only type of poetry that I remember. Then the meaning of poet was defined in this context: many starts and few finishes. Meh.
My brain is like a flittering butterfly. I love to brainstorm and develop new ideas. I love to plan. My favorite part of college was getting all of my syllabi the first week of the new semester and then entering all of the important dates into my day planner. I’m a nerd, I know. My point in all of this is that I don’t want to be a poet. I want to be a dedicated garden blogger who delivers regular content to this website.
I really want to get back to posting on a regular basis but I need your help. What topics are you interested in? Inspire me by letting me know what you’re curious about. Is it organic gardening, vegetables, ornamental trees and shrubs, perennials, improving your soil…please let me know! I find myself being drawn to homesteading and sustainable agriculture blogs like Chism Heritage Farm and The Urban Farming Guys. Does that type of information interest you? Pray tell!
Shoot me some ideas and I’ll get back to this blogging thing. I have a guest post from George Graine, a Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardener, coming later this week. He has more years of gardening experience than I have years on this planet. I know you’ll enjoy George’s post and I hope to hear from you soon!
