Garden Gate is with it!

I was at Syndic8 looking for any gardening feeds I might have missed, and discovered that Garden Gate magazine has a weblog! Way to go! It looks good, too. Regrettably, it seems to be only for their tips, which I was already getting as an RSS feed. But they get five gold stars for being a progressive provider of gardening web content. I wish all the gardening magazines would follow suit, and provide at least some, if not all, of their web content as an RSS feed.

Sooner or later, everyone rides a hobby horse. I guess this (RSS feeds for everyone) is mine.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

The article doesn’t say much. But I think it would be useful to use in convincing commercial sites to give RSS a try, just because of the name recognition Forbes provides.

You’re ahead of the curve, as usual. See Forbes magazine explain RSS to the masses, here (http://www.forbes.com/personaltech/2004/02/23/cx_ah_0223tentech.html).
