The Zen of Blogging is a free ebook written by Hunter Nuttall.
I have been looking for the rules in blogging and now I think I have my answer: just go with the flow. It's OK if I want to answer the comments on my posts, but it's OK not to as well. The same goes for length of posts and frequency of posting, and everything else to do with blogging.
It's also worth looking at this ebook just for the beautiful images.
Thank you, Hunter.
about this blog
This blog tracks the ongoing changes of my garden, and the wildlife I try to attract to it. It's a nature blog. It contains my thoughts and musings about anything and everything to do with nature - gardening, book reviews, philosophy, travel, science, history, art, design, politics. Catmint is my signature plant because it has all the qualities I value in a plant: resilience, beauty and the capacity to spread prolifically . Unfortunately it's not indigenous. If I was starting again I'd probably choose an indigenous plant.
