I'm new to blogging but I have quickly realized Blotanical is the place to be for quick and easy networking in the garden blogosphere. This site is just as addictive as gardening! It's a joy to receive so many welcomes when you become a member. I certainly liked hearing from many of the blotanists I'm already loyally following. Searching for blogs is made easily accessible through a popular picks category _ a great, time-saving feature. I see it as one-stop shopping around the world. I'm amazed at the size of this unique community and look forward to sharing the ups and downs of my obsession with fellow enthusiasts. It's also fun to gather points _ by sending comments, visiting "plots" _ so we all can build our cache of favorites, but it's just a great way to connect with each other. This in turn helps to build readership, which validates all our efforts in putting ourselves out there for everyone to see. Another bonus, in the middle of the night when I'm really craving all things gardening, I can go digging around Blotanical to get my fix.
