Blotanical the place to meet great people

I’m fairly new to the blogging community. On the other hand I’ve been gardening in some format for over 20 years and watching my Grandmother garden for many years before that. With some encouragement from my mom, I just started my blog in May of this year. When I started searching for other garden bloggers I noticed that most of them had a Blotanical Banner on their sidebar. Because I was so new to blogging and curious on how to meet more enthusiastic gardeners like myself I clicked on it. Immediately I knew that this was something I wanted to get involved in. My membership began on June 16, 2008 and everyone was so welcoming and helpful. I enjoy the picks section of Blotanical the most. Not only will you find popular posts in this section but posts from brand new gardening blog members as well. These picks are updated daily 24 hours a day. It is interesting to read the posts of other gardeners all over the country and world are growing in their own gardens. If you like the post you can pick it. You will also earn points for picking posts that you enjoy. There are many knowledgeable and creative gardeners in the blogging community. Most of them belong to Blotanical. They really are the site “Where garden blogs bloom”. During this time I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of very nice and interesting people. There are many benefits to joining a garden blogging community like Blotanical. First you get to meet other people who have similar interests to yourself. Then you get the opportunity to further your knowledge about gardening as well as learn new and creative ways to grow plants or to improve your garden. Last but not least the amount of traffic on your own personal blog will increase. More people will know you are out there and will visit your blog. So if you are new to the blogging community and a garden blogger at that, please come join Blotanical by clicking on this link and feel free to send me a message. I would love to hear from you!

    Thanks for the info. I have not heard of Blotanical. I will definitely check it out! I’m very new to blogging and obviously don’t know a whole lot about it yet.

    What a good idea for a post! You are the best blotanical person! I am still struggling trying to figure out how to do things! (like add the banner to my blog!)

    Susie, I am fairly new myself. I found it by accident when I was looking at other people’s blogs. Check it out, I think you will really like it. Happy 4th of July! Have a safe & happy w/end!

    Linda, If you do a post about Blotanical you earn the red star. You just post and then send a msg to the helpdesk by going to the help desk tab to let them know you did a post. Also if you go to the helptab and under FAQ’s you will find the code to get the banner and then you just add it to your blog by using the html selection in layout.

    Good morning,
    Thanks for visiting and wishing me a happy 4th. There are lots of things that I have to learn about blogging. I think it will be fun, in the winter, to have this new hobby…. reading what people all over the country are doing. Have a great rest of the weekend.

    Good morning Balisha. You are welcome, I hope your weekend is nice too. I think we all have something to learn about blogging. It is fun and I will enjoy it very much over the winter when I won’t be able to play in my garden. Happy Blogging!

    What on earth is Blotanical? I don’t see that on my blog. Maybe I should look again.
