Where are the bloggers on GW?

I see the posts on garden voices by various bloggers and I'm guessing some of them are members of GW but is there a forum where most of them could be found?

I'm looking for bloggers to link to from my blog but I don't see any links to blogs on the countless member pages I've checked out on GW.

With so many people with knowledge on various topics I figured I'd find more sites blogs.

Near the top of this page you'll see a bar that says:
Garden Web, Blogs, Forums, Photo Galleries, .........
I am guessing that if you click on the word "blogs" you may find what you are looking for.
I have posted a link below to my own personal blog which is mostly about gardening. Be sure to read the archives.

I also have linked to the garden voices. One link goes from my Suite101 site (americangardens@suite101.com) the other goes to my personal garden blog named From the Home and Garden. As Eddie said the links to all the blogs are on the side.

RE: Where are the bloggers on GW?

Thanks for the responses. I probably should have worded the OP a lot better. I know where GV is and visit it often (when it's working)but I was noticing that a few of the bloggers seemed to know each other and then that got me wondering how many bloggers/writers/website owners there were on GW.

I look at every profile I come across on GW and I rarely find a blog/site that is gardening specific in a profile and with so many knowledgeable people I just gather more would be using the medium to share their passion.

Oddly enough though in my surfing I have come across a site or two only to discover later that it belonged to a GWer.

I guess I was just thinking out loud. :)

RE: Where are the bloggers on GW?

Probably a fair number of us have gardening blogs (you commented on my blog about my cat-deer picture the other day); there are times when maybe we don't want everybody here to know about our blog... like in the middle of January, when we start getting desperate for something to write about and begin posting our favorite crockpot recipes for small game.

I'd like to see a Garden Blogger forum on GardenWeb. This way we could discuss things like, how to increase traffic, how to get links to your blog, how to make money all from a Garden Blogging point of view.

Hey, Anthony - I LOVED six gardening lies. Very funny and oh so true.

My question is this: where do I find time to blog and read all the blogs that are out there? I can't even keep up with my weekly copies of The New Yorker, let alone the ten-odd gardening magazines I subscribe to.

Forget how to make money from all this blogging...let's hear how we can make MORE TIME.

RE: Where are the bloggers on GW?

clfo, thanks, I'm glad that you enjoyed the gardening lies.

Figuring out a way to add more hours to the day might be a tough one. Maybe we should start with something a little easier, like global warming or world peace.

Although, since I've become more active in the Garden Blogger community, I've felt less of a need to subscribe to all those gardening magazines. It nice to actually interact with fellow gardeners in blog comments, gardenweb, etc.

RE: Where are the bloggers on GW?

I have several blogs, but none are specifically about gardening.

Sweet Rocket is a steady but sporadic effort. I write in Quiet Stars, my song blog, every day. Some folks here are familiar with Forty Thieves, the 40-words-a-day blog I did all last year. Forty words a day about 365 people who have crossed my path in a memorable way. I recommend it as a fascinating exercise everyone should try.

RE: Where are the bloggers on GW?

I have tried to list my blog at Gardenvoices, but each time, it doesn't work - I can't seem to contact anyone about adding it. When I use the provided contact link for adding my blog to the list, I get back an email that says "undeliverable." I also tried the 'Contact Us" feature here at Garden Web at the bottom of the page (to ask them about this problem,)but it says "error," and something along the lines of 'we don't answer gardening questions...'

So... if anyone can help me figure this problem out, I would be grateful. I'd love to add my blog to the listing!

My blog is about my personal adventures (misadventures?) in vegetable gardening.

Please read it! You can also get it via email or in a reader. Thanks!
