When I began preparing to host a garden blogging meme, I only knew of a couple of memes and didn’t realize how many active garden blogging memes there are. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Memes are fun! Memes promote a sense of community and nurture the artistic and scientific aspects of gardening and related interests. Garden memes are educational.
I guess I must have said something about how many gardening memes exist in the blogosphere to The Husband and Tech Support guy and, well, he developed a widget, (ahem, with my help), that I can now add to my blog as a link to a list of currently active garden blogging memes.
The debut of the Calendar of Garden Blogging memes is today! If you look to the right, you’ll see a the lovely native Texan Goldeneye which, when you click on it, will bring you to this page.
There may be other active blogging memes that I missed and that are not on this list: no slight is intended–I’ve included the memes I know about and that are currently active. If you know of other active memes, please don’t hesitate to contact me with the pertinent information, either through the handy-dandy little blue envelope (the one that says, contact me), or through the comments section.
