As a feature writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Mackenzie Carpenter has to cover politics but for pure enjoyment she gets to also cover gardening. And lucky readers get her highly entertaining feature about garden blogs in today's edition. It describes blogs as livelier, perkier and more passionate than other garden writing. Filled with gossip and even attitude-changing crusades, garden blogs aren't "staid or semi-promotional" like garden writing so often is. Lord knows we try.
Here at GardenRant headquarters we thank Mackenzie for her awesome piece and kind words about this blog, and urge her to comment when she gets the itch because she definitely has things to say.
