What’s in a BLOG?
Filed Under News And Articles · Tagged:
Being a horticulturist it is my nature to touch, see and feel the medium I work with. (ie plants, soil, stones etc.) Being fairly new to this very fast paced communication age, I have wanted to create a website that was more than just a business card on line. I seemed like such a daunting task, which may be similar to how many of you must feel when you think about designing your garden. I have become quite competent with my email, but was proud of my most recent accomplishment by becoming proficient at texting my teenage son.
As I sought advice on different venues to use regarding creating a web address, the word Blog kept coming up. I thought, what does the word Blog mean, it sounded Greek to me, again how many of you must feel when I speak the Latin names of plants. So what do we do now in this age, we Google our question online or we Ask Jeeves. I learned the word BLOG is short for weblog, an online, regularly updated journal or newsletter that is readily accessible to the general public by virtue of being posted on a website and are usually written and posted by the author.
The first time I was really introduced to a blog was when my assistant Miko had gone on a two month trip to India. It was great to see her pictures and entries and in a way experience her trip with her and be able to respond to her and communicate across the world. It seemed more like a journal with pictures, but until recently I was unaware I could create a blog site that would be more interactive my clients and college students. It could be a venue that I could use to inform potential clients about the services our company offers, as well as posting articles and seminars I have written. I love to educate people on the wonders of plants, and I am always asked questions from clients when I visit our accounts. I wanted to have a place my clients and fellow plant lovers could come to learn the answers to their questions.
So welcome to our BLOG, as a professional company we offer a wide variety of services that can enhance your environment. I hope you also find it a place that you can turn to get your plant questions answered, as well as finding articles, and resources of information on plants you will find interesting and helpful.
