My Blog is My Gardening Book

Q. Have you written any gardening books? You are such a wealth of information.

A. My blog is my "gardening book". It is freely accessible to anyone with internet and people can add information to it or correct mine if they think it is not the best advice.

In many ways I feel educational blogs are better than books. My blog receives anywhere from 30.000 to 40,000 views each month (could be compared with opening a book and reading a page) with over one million views over its lifespan. How many times does a book get opened?

Views and questions are from all over the world with the most views coming from the United States, Russia, Ukraine, France, India, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Germany, China and others. How else can you get worldwide distribution of your "book"? I have kept sales advertisements off of my blog for the present time. I have been considering it as I get closer to "retirement". We will see what the future brings.
