Forum home The potting shed

Share your own blog!

We previously had a thread about good garden blogs, but I wanted to see what you guys are posting. Been a lurker here, but wanted to know what you guys actually do!

If you don't have a blog, why not? and Tell me a bit about your garden here :)

Here is a link to my own:

:) Happy Gardening people

  • Should be easy enough to see what we do in the garden just by checking the forum perhaps ? Pick a subject which interests you and have a look.

    "if you don't have a blog, why not ? "  Much the same as if you don't have anything else really - mostly comes down to choice don't you think ?

    Whilst I am sure your blog is interesting/enlightening, why assume everyone wishes to do the same ? Wee bit patronising I think.image

    I SEE THAT YOU HOPE TO GO TO GERMANY SOON FOR WHAT SOUNDS LIKE A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF TIME.

    WHO WILL LOOK AFTER YOUR ALLOTMENT DURING YOUR ABSENCE?

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Good question!

    The allotment will then be up for grabs. I am only renting it for a short amount of time :)

    Was just curious to see how that differs from something like a forum. I have been looking on my Facebook gardening groups to.

    I don't think everyone needs a blog, was just interested to see if people ran one and why. Or if people had a particular reason for not sharing their own personal garden stuff in that way. 

    Sorry if it came out wrong :(

    Hi, I don't have a blog, gardening or otherwise... yet. I used to blog on behalf of my workplace so have written hundreds of posts (and spent many hours analysing WordPress stats), but very few as me. I've yet to find something I want to say as me!

    I assume you're a member of the Garden Bloggers group on FB? It seems very active.

    Haha, I like the yet part :D

    Maybe you don't have to write anything as you, maybe you can be anon? :)

    I'm a member of a few garden groups on FB.

    Don't have time for a blog ... I paint write garden cook and chat with friends and try to help out  here ... and I have to sleep some time ...

     Sleep is very important! :)  I guess time is a big factor

  • The regulars on here don't need blogs.

    We've talked about our gardening in 'What did you do today?', posted pics in 'Gardening Gallery', asked about problems and used our experience to help others. We talk about what we have bought and about what has done well, and all sorts of other things on 'Forkers'.We have learned about each others' gardens, the good and the bad, the challenges and successes and tried to help out along the way. That has even extended to support for those struggling with  huge issues unrelated to gardening.

    For many of us posting on here is talking to friends, less one sided than a blog.
