I like to give credit where credit is due. Today, credit is due to Susan Holland of Bismarck, North Dakota. Susan’s and my friendship is a testament to the new world we live in – one connected over many miles thanks to modern technology.
Susan took one more big technology step recently, as her credits now include an entry into the blogosphere. Her blog, cleverly named Digging Dakota, debuted in October.
Susan and I met at the Garden Writers Association symposium in Indianapolis this summer. How perfect. I got to talk to other Gardeners, who write, and associate with them. (Gosh – I wonder how they came up with the name for this group?) Susan and I were roomies, and with it being so easy to communicate electronically these days, we have kept in touch.
This isn’t how Susan arrived in Bismarck after living in Tustin, California; Amity, Oregon; Fort Clark, North Dakota; St. Paul, Minnesota; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Williamsburg, Virginia; London, England; Watford, England; Edinburgh, Scotland; and Williston.
So why are these pictures all on her gardening blog? I suggest you check out Digging Dakota to see.
One thing that this is – my heartfelt congratulations to Susan for taking the leap. I’ve added Susan’s blog to my blogroll so you can stop in to visit her early and often, just like we vote here in Chicago.
I’m even sure she’ll add me to her blogroll now that I have blatantly publicized hers. No pressure here – ok maybe just a little pressure. Heck, what are friends for?
Way to go Susan!
