I was thrilled on waking this morning to learn that my hosta photo had won Gold, amid stiff competition, in the Gardening Gone Wild Picture This photo contest for November 2009!
Awards seem to have become the Stella d’Oro of the garden blogging world lately; a little overplanted. So much so that Charlotte of the wonderful Galloping Gardener – coincidentally, the blogger who tagged us for our very first meme award – has declared an R.I.P.
We want to honour the kind intention of those who have recognized us, without burdening anyone else with an obligation.
Therefore, we simply want to suggest this. Read our post on Toronto Garden Bloggers from earlier this month. Or expand our blog roll and have a look. Or follow the links back from a tweet that you like. Check back often for additions.
Do the same when you visit other blogs. You’re bound to stumble upon someone new you aren’t following… yet. Chances are, if they’re on the blog roll (think of it as an honour roll) of a blog you admire, they belong on yours, too. We all win by sharing that way.
It has been fun learning 10 honest things or 7 things we didn’t know about our fellow bloggers. Perhaps we can find a way to hybridize this way of cultivating knowledge about our blogging community. I hope so.
