It has been over a month since I posted here on tumblr; and I’d like to use today’s entry as an opportunity to state what my intentions are for my entries on this venue in the days to come, for I know that like Little Bo Peep’s (who is pictured above) lost sheep, who strayed away from her, I have strayed away from my original hope re this endeavor: an endeavor I began in May of 2011, when I set up this blog on tumblr.
During that time a trainer at my local Apple Store (who knew I was active on Blogger), suggested I also blog here, for she knew The New York Botanical Gardens was active on tumblr, and at that point, a majority of my Blogger entries were in the voice of the flora that grows in my urban (NYC) garden.
And all throughout my tenure on tumblr, I have written entries in the voice of the flora that grows in my urban terrace garden, as well as in the voice of the birds which visit it; but since I do not like to duplicate content, I find it increasingly difficult to post images as well as to write different things about gardens in both places!
Initially I resolved this by incorporating content which included the voices of what grows in my indoor succulent garden, as well as the figurines (such as Little Bo Peep) that visit it. However I felt that Blogger audiences might find these posts to be intriguing too, and I began to refer Blogger readers to tumblr, and eventually also posted indoor garden stories on Blogger.
Therefore I was running into the same issue of being in danger of duplicating content! Now, I’ve come up with a plan that I described on Blogger in my March 6th 2014 post which is this: I will post my “stories” re my indoor succulent garden and the antics of the whimsical characters that visit it here on tumblr. And I will post the “stories” of the flora which grows in my urban garden as well as the stories of the birds that visit it on Blogger.
Moreover, I will try and provide links to any posts that deal with these urban garden-related topics, to make it easy for tumblr readers who may still wish to hear what my flora and birds have to say.
As of this posting, I have three new “stories” on Blogger that are related to the birds that visit me, and some of their photo-ops have been included with this tumblr entry. Please visit me on Blogger to read these stories by clicking here, as well as here, and here.
And please bear with me, my whimsical characters, my flora, and, my visiting birds, as we embark on this transition in our blogging! We appreciate your readership, and also encourage you to visit us on Facebook and Pinterest.
