Today my morning routine did not go as planned. I was looking forward to a round-the-world tour of my favorite gardening blogs. But when I tried to log on to Blotanical, the site was down. I raced around the blogosphere checking in with other blogs to see if there was any news as to why the site was down. I even checked the weather in Australia--Blotanical's founder Stuart Robinson is from Busselton, Western Australia--to make sure mother nature was not to blame for Blotanical's disappearance from the radar screen. When I came up short on answers I was forced to move on to Plan B--laundry and vacuuming. This made for a very cranky Curmudgeon.
Blotanical, where garden blogs bloom
Blotanical is a social site that brings together blogging gardeners of different ilks and stripes from all over the world. From professional gardeners, garden writers and nature photographers to complete novices like the Wenches, you can find it on Blotanical. I have my own page on the site, "My Plot", which contains info about me and my garden. I learn about other gardeners and their blogs by visiting their plots. My favorite tool on Blotanical is the ability to search for garden blogs by geographical location--France, South Africa, India, Indonesia, Australia, the Caribbean and of course all across the US and Canada.
Hey! I just checked and Blotanical is back. But it's way past lunchtime now. Making it around the world before I need to leave for work is going to be a challenge. Heck with laundry! Who needs clean socks anyway!
