New Garden Blog Directory
Leave it to Stuart down at Gardening Tips 'N Ideas to create a great new gardening blog directory. As if the clickable map that allows you to find garden blogs by geographic area isn't enough fun, he's built a garden blog search engine, too.
I did a test search for "salvia" and was rewarded with pages of results. All came not from random webpages or plant retailers, but from the posts within the blogs that make up the directory. How cool is that? You can pick the brains of your fellow garden bloggers without having to interrupt their winter catalog dreaming or spring planting.
The only thing that I can think of that would immediately improve this directory is the addition of more webpages. So if you're a garden blogger and you're reading this, click on over and get yourself added!
One shortcut to this for U.S. bloggers: Stuart will ask for your latitude and longitude in order to properly place your little dot on the map. I found a free address verification page that will give you those coordinates once you type in your street address. For the record, I garden at 41.4727 Degrees North, 81.7919 Degrees West.
