Best part about the Garden Writers Association conference? Meeting GardenRant readers. Wow! There are a lot of you. And at last we know your faces. (Well, except for this face. Quick–name a famous garden photographer who wears red feather boas when he’s among friends.)
And I think we’ll have a lot of new GardenRant readers stopping by this week. Several people wanted the very useful handout from last year’s GWA blogging panel, and I said I’d post it, so here it is:
Kathy Purdy’s post about last year’s panel
and the handout she developed. Basically, if you want to start a blog and need some links and pointers to get going, that handout will really help you out.
And also thanks to Kathy Purdy for posting the link to the Twitters coming from GWA.
But Susan & I also talked to a lot of people who thought a conference call about blogging for garden writers
would be really helpful. We could go through some of this stuff step-by-step, but everybody can be home in front of their own computers. Could work. Stay tuned here at GardenRant–we’ll try to set that up.
And finally–there was talk (OK, mostly from me) of setting up a discussion board for garden writers. Working on it. Again, stay tuned.
Oh, and the Portland gardens we toured were gorgeous, of course–even when (or perhaps because?) they were filled with garden writers.
