GardenStew Blogs are a Year Old!
Today is a very special day for blogs on GardenStew. First of all today the 10th of October 2006 is a year to the day when the blogs system first launched officially. Not only that but this is the 1000th blog entry written too! Some coincidence eh :)
Here are some stats:
Blogs started: 49
Entries written: 1000
Comments posted: 3254
Initially I'll admit I wasn't too sure that the blogs would take off but they really surprised me and I don't think our little community would be the same without them. It's what sets us apart from a lot of other gardening communities out there.
So what I suggest today is to reflect on what your blog has meant to you and tell us in the comments below. Also maybe we could choose a few links to our favourite blog entries and post them below as well.
And also I'd just like to say:
THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to the blogs so far, that includes authors and commenters!!! Looking forward to what the next year has in store!

Congratulations on a unique idea, Frank. I love having my blog here. Makes me feel important <G>. Thanks for all you do. I know I love it. The gardening info, although very important, is just a part of making Gardenstew a close knit and loving community.
Amen to that Jan. Thanks!
Congrats Frank I love being able to post my poetry on my blog and Ilove reading the thoughts adventures and sometimes mis adventures of my stew people. It has brought me great joy and pride to know that othere think my ramblings are worth reading. thanks also for the anti virus link you posted downloaded it works great.
What I love and appreciate about blogging on gardenstew is it is safe. I was looking for a journaling/blogging place, did a google search for gardening blogs and found GardenStew...it felt like home from the beginning.
I enjoy the chance of getting a more in depth look into the characters on "The Stew". I'm a lazy blogger and somewhat of a secretive person so it gives me a chance to think and actually contribute something from time to time to our little community. Of course hubby (like all of them) thinks I think too much. It's such a melting pot here that I have a chance to meet folks I would never come across in my little rural world. Thanks so much.
I don't make friends easily. I get tongue-tied and can never think of something to say. I think Gardenstew has helped me make a lot of friends that I otherwise would not have. Thanks! I can blog without looking at people and that makes it easier to ramble along. I do enjoy meeting all the people and the comments about things. Information is great, too. Dooley
I'm just caught up in how nice everyone is here, I've always thought farmers & gardeners were the best sorts of people & this site proves me right. And I've learned so much from it, proof that gardeners are the most down-to-earth people on the planet!
How do I start.I don't know how to put into words how I feel about Garden Stew and all the friends I feel I have made through you guys.Its been hard for me to get my life together and move on after loosing my whole life as it was.You all have kept me from being the lost person I was.I really felt like I sometimes couldn't go on.If I'm lonly I go to the Stew and get a big lift.I love the blogs and watch for new ones .
What I really like about the blogs here is that everyone is treated with respect. I have attended writers forums and workshops in the past where it seemed the other writers could not wait to tear into each others work. That does not happen here. It is a great place because of that and many other reasons. Good people. Glendann, I had to cut back due to many other reasons including a long neglected book. I will try to convince Susie, Chance and Graywolf to submit something once in a while. Thank you Frank for giving all of us a place to hang out. As Tiny Tim said,"God bless us everyone."
Thank you Dr every once in a while beats not at all.I do understand and I love to read every thing you write and Dooley.
Thanks for all the kind words all, it makes this whole experience worth the time and effort. A good thought provoking blog entry is still my favorite thing about the site. I never thought poetry and writings would appear but they're a fantastic addition.
