It’s no secret that most of the garden blogs I read – and also most of the readers of my blog – are based in different countries. I guess I’ve sort of asked for this, blogging in English, rather than in my native Danish, but Denmark is such a small country that I just felt it would be natural to write in English if I were to make any real attempt at making my jottings accessible to any real audience. (And of course many of my friends are foreigners so if at any point I decide to come out of the closet as a garden blogger, they can actually read this blog.)
However… I don’t really know many Danish garden blogs, let alone bloggers, so when I came across the image to the left, a “virtual flyer” for a garden blogger meet-up here in Copenhagen, it got me thinking about whether it might not be an idea to attend and see if there are some interesting people there whose brains I can pick via their blogs. After all, gardening is hugely dependent on local circumstances, and though it might be nifty to follow gardening blogs from Japan to the US it doesn’t help me deal with local conditions.
So I may or may not go. Last sign-up is September 5th, and it’s a free event with the option of ordering a sandwich lunch.
I just took one step towards integrating myself in the Danish gardening blogosphere by getting my blog added to a directory of Danish garden blogs, haveblogs.blogspot.com. I need to add a proper link-back to the side bar at some point, and I should really also add links to Blotanical and Kathy’s Cold Climate Gardening and a few other sites.
