We're not rolling yet. If you don't visit Forums on Blotanical you may miss something. Like Picks and other delights, Forums is undergoing change. It is busy gardening time most places. Some of us don't have time to get to every aspect of our own garden much less gardening sites. By September, we'll be winding down or in the southern hemisphere looking for Spring.
Awards created so much activity on Blotanical just as I joined in 2009. I might not have stayed had I not gotten caught up in the excitement. I asked about this year. No, I wasn't a winner. Awards was a vehicle for me to learn about many members.
Here's what Stuart said when asked if there would be Awards this year:
This is a fairly controversial topic and seems to divide the garden community more than anything else that happens. Personally, I love the idea and find it is a ton of fun but am very conscious of those that detest the so-called competition and struggle with who wins - and who doesn't.
If the majority of Blotanists think this is a worthwhile exercise - and can appreciate its fun factor more than getting bogged down by the perceptions of it - then I'm happy to look at running them again.
Over to you. What are your thoughts?
If you are new to Blotanical since 2009 and don't know what we're talking about, type 'Blotanical Awards' into the Search feature on Blotanical. There is a tab for Awards, too.
In case you haven't time to comment, I made a little poll for the sidebar. Please take part.
Please leave comments if you have strong feelings about Awards.
