(A note on the pictures: I just couldn’t do a post without including a few images! I took these Euphorbia pictures earlier this month but didn’t have anything in mind to do with them. So often my camera fails to pick up the blue color in the leaves instead turning them green, the light that particular morning had them glowing extra blue and fortunately the camera was able to capture it)

Why do you blog?
Well, that’s making a bit of an assumption isn’t it? I know not everyone reading this is a blogger. So those of you who do blog (on gardening or otherwise), why? Why did you start blogging and why do you continue?Recently I’ve read about several bloggers who are turning off the comments function on their blogs. Some are saying that anticipating comments, and what they will say, is interfering with their blogging creativity. I guess on some level I can understand that. After all I’ve felt the questioning “but why don’t they have anything to say about this?” after I’ve posted on a topic I feel passionate about but that elicits very few comments. However I’ve also grown to realize that’s part of the fun, seeing what images and words will get a response and what ones will not, I just never know. For me, without your comments this blogging thing wouldn’t be half the fun. I love the interaction and the sense of community that the commenting function on my blog, and those that I read, allows. Without your comments I wouldn’t be having conversations with like minded gardeners in Florida, Texas, California and England let alone right here in Oregon and Washington, and that’s what I’ve grown to value most.So I’m curious…if you are a blogger why did you start? And what keeps you blogging? Would you ever consider turning off the comments function on your blog?
