If you are looking for some of the worlds best garden blogs - look no further. They all got their plot on Blotanical - a garden blog directory unlike any other.
Where gardenbloggers in the past tried to form small mutual admiration societies - A young handsome Australian gardener and gardenblogger; Stuart Robinson, chose to dig a bit deeper and was able to "Think Big". He created Blotanical - a social networking site for gardenbloggers and those who like to read garden blogs. Now there is no need to be picky - In fact good social skills and being extrovert is rewarded, by networking outside the former exclusive blogrolls and mutual admiration societies. Using feedburner and the Picks list on Blotanical, you can read the latest posts from 822 garden blogs from all over the world. If you like the posts you can "Pick" posts and be rewarded points for that. All who join Blotanical, whether they have a garden blog or not become Blotanists. The more you interact with other blotanists the more points you will get and the more influential you will become - getting the right to fave more blotanists and garden blogs. Finally it is not up to a few selfappointed garden blog gurus to decide which garden blogs are good enough to get strange awards that will clutter up the sideboard of the blog layouts. I choose to call it a democratisation of the garden blogosphere and garden writing.
So if you are interested in reading about every sort of plants and gardening under the sun, join Blotanical and read about beginners and master gardeners experiences, joys,frustrations and reflections about gardening. A forum for Blotanists seems to be one of the new features coming.
