As I mentioned recently, I’m going to Oklahoma City this fall to participate in a panel discussion on garden blogs. Yes, these professional writers, accustomed as they are to newspaper, magazine, television, radio, and even marketing work, are a bit intimidated and confused by blogging–so I’m told. Some are downright misinformed. So, along with Mary Ann Newcomer (who suggested my name), and David Perry, I’m going to attempt to educate them. We’ve got one hour, including time for questions.
I think, all by myself, I could talk for a couple of hours on blogging, especially if I got into what software to use and how to set it up. Obviously my fellow panelists and I have got to distill our collective knowledge into the most essential points, and present them concisely. So I’m asking you, my fellow garden bloggers, to think back to when you first got started. If you could start over, what would you do differently? What do you wish you had known right from the beginning? What is the least someone needs to know to start garden blogging?
Don’t be shy, but do be thoughtful. And thanks for your help!
