New Wordpress Website for my Garden

28 comments


Hi everyone! It has been an ambition of mine to have my own blogsite. So this month I have made a start to a new Wordpress site. I don’t expect you all to visit it of course, this is just to let you know, in case you don’t see me on here as much and wonder where I am. I’ll be on my blog, adding plants and photos etc. to it. Its quite a time-consuming thing to do, but once its up and running properly it should be easy enough to update. There’s nothing on there that you haven’t seen on here so far, but during 2019 that might change. Don’t worry, I’m not deserting GoY!

http://karensgarden.home.blog is the address :)

I started to do one a few years ago......our SIL thought it a good idea, to advertise the garden, but as I am on Instagram and have created a small following, decided not to do it ....good luck Karen I hope it takes off!

I hope it does well Karen. I shall pop in now and then to see what you are up to.

Exciting Karen, I will take a peek.
Dotty, I have an Instagram account but I've never really got into it, I must look again.

I have tried to look at this site but it comes up as Karens garden creations and I dont think this is you

Karen you have made a great start to your website. I look forward to dropping in to see what you are getting up to. I love the detail you go into about your personal experiences of your plants eg the chokeberries in your kitchen page.
Drc 726 I found the same problem. I got in to Karens website very easily by clicking on her name above, then on her profile page you can click on her 'My website'.

Http://karensgarden.home.blog should work.

you have to high light it, just had a quick glimpse, shall read more later of for a cuppa now,

Dawn what is your Instagram name, I can follow you, I find it really useful, gardening information, cooking ideas, etc, I have lots of gardeners, well known like Monty Don, James Alexander Sinclair etc and just ordinary people like me, and my sourdough lady has been so helpful, she answers my messages in minutes.
My account is private, so followers have to put in a request, it means I only have people I want looking at my pics.
Karen's it a lovely website, left a comment, forgotten I already have a WordPress account!

Stripes I did try that and again a minute ago but it is still not responding with the website we want. I think if the website is new then it needs visitors to pull it up to the top of the search pages. Maybe it depends on the server being used by me or Drc 726.

Good luck with the new venture. Hope it all goes well.

Scotsgran you should not have a problem..... I just clicked on Karen's picture, avatar, then on the right of the page that comes up, it says my website click on that, and it takes you there instantly!! I am using Chrome.....btw. there is no need to highlight anything, it is really so quick....

Brilliant Dottydaisy2. I got through trouble free using your suggestion. This site is so good when members come up with shortcuts like that. I was getting the same as Drc when I first tried to find the website using Karen's advice.

20 Jan, 2019

 

So pleased to hear you found Karen's website...good isn't it Scotsgran?

20 Jan, 2019

 

It is a lovely website and Karen shares her enthusiasm and her knowledge in a very easy to understand way.

I've visited your blog, Karen, & it looks very good! I love the photos of flowering shrubs!
