Garden Bloggers Spring Fling 2008

Guest List

Are you new to garden blogging, or have you been doing it a few years? Do you use Blogger, WordPress, or Movable Type? Do you go with the default template, or do you have a highly customized site? Do you have a large web following or just write for friends and family? Whatever the case, at Garden Bloggers Spring Fling 2008 you’ll find other garden bloggers eager to share their experiences and opinions on a variety of issues: privacy, garden photography, content theft, monetizing your blog, increasing traffic. And that’s just the blog topics. Of course, we’ll talk about gardening, too.

We bet you want to know who is coming to the Spring Fling. . .
Garden bloggers who have already RSVP’d to join the fun this weekend include:

While we are extremely grateful for non-blogging readers’ interest in attending, we regret that, due to space constraints at the meetings and on the tours, we must limit attendance to garden bloggers and a few honorary bloggers.

If family or friends travel with you to Austin, we’ve come up with a list of fun things to do in Austin during the garden-blogger events on Saturday, April 5. No events are planned for Sunday, leaving it open for sightseeing, day trips, or departure.

    AS much as I’d loved to go to Austin this spring and meet up with you all, just can’t swing it this year between the big GWA trip to Portland and several East Coast day trips I have planned. Have a wonderful time and I hope this becomes a regular annual thing.

    Thanks for the moral support, Kathy! —Pam

    As a garden blogger, may I ask : Is it too late to be included in the Spring Fling in Austin? I have family there, so accommodations will not be a problem.

    I’ll be in Austin in spirit on behalf of

    But with commitments already to Garden Writers and The Association of Professional Landscape Designers, Texas is a little too far this year.

    How about planning some other sessions in other parts of the country?

    Hi, Jane. The second Garden Bloggers Spring Fling will certainly be a topic of discussion during this event. Thanks for your comment. —Pam

    I would love to go, but my SO works that day and I have to watch my daughter (I don’t have any family here, so no babysitters) – maybe next year if this becomes an annual thing.
