What's a Blotanicalst?

Someone who writes a garden blog and has been accepted to have it listed with a wonderful blogging community. Check it out....

As you probably know, I love to blog! Well I love to garden all the more, although I must say I'm not very good, I think I kill more things than grow. But I love it all the same! This love of both gardening and blogging led me to start a gardening blog last year, called Polka Dot Galoshes. More a personal journal for me, to keep track of my garden, take note of the things that work and don't work, keep track of the many needs, jot down the many beautiful moments in my happy place!

I am very excited to have found Blotanical! I now have a place I can share blogging stories, read others inspirational blogs, learn more about gardening and blogging at the same time, while meeting other gardeners from the Northwest and around the world.
I've already connected with a few Aussies now living in WA who love gardening and blogging. Spoken with a wonderful gardener from Italy and have heard all about her gorgeous Tuscan villa (jealous, hell yeah!)

On being listed you get your own mentor, a "blotanical guru" someone who will help you step by step, meet other bloggers, enhance your own work, tips and tricks with both gardening and blogging. And as an added bonus, she lives here in the Northwest.
The warmth and friendliness has been overwhelming, with bloggers from all over the world welcoming me to the site. Two days and I already feel so at home there.
I love this new community I am lucky to be part of, the best of both worlds coming together!!
