Here’s the thing that occurred to me this morning; when it comes to reading about gardening increasingly I find that my monthly copy of Gardener’s World gets passed over; my preference being to ‘click’ through one of my many favourite blogs. Whilst certainly there’s a lot to be learnt from some, they’re less high horticulture for a start, friendlier and more of a shared experience than a magazine, allowing us as they do to interact via the comments. There must be twenty or so that I read on a regular basis and I’ve ‘met’ some really interesting, kind and wonderful people.
My frustration in the past has been how difficult it can be to find them. The main blog sites can be very sketchy when you carry out a search and sites that collate blogs such as Bloglovin’ have no section dedicated to the subject, so the best you can hope for with a search is a very long list, eight hundred at the last try, giving no priority to currently active blogs over inactive.
So I wanted to talk about gardengrab, a website run by Fennel & Fern. Gardengrab brings together lots of really good gardening blogs via their photography. It’s a really good place to find new blogs to read and to showcase your own blog if you’re interested in gaining a bigger readership, whilst understanding that most of us don’t start writing with that in mind it’s nice at a certain point to know that other people like what you’re doing. My connection? I moderate the site and know how great your blogs would look.
If you want to take a look the link to gardengrab is here and if you’ve found any great blogs recently that you’d like to recommend perhaps you’d let us know in the comments.
