Life is a constant revaluation process. It’s important to periodically stop and take a look at where you are and where you want to go.
During one of these revaluation processes several years back Bill decided that we should stop doing so much traveling in our business and focus in on the things we really wanted to accomplish in the time remaining in our life.
It’s a bit scary to make that kind of decision, because you always wonder if you’ll still be able to earn a living with new changes in your strategy. But – so far so good — it’s just that income is spread further apart than if we were still doing some of things that took us on travel. (And it certainly couldn’t be any scarier than coming to a new area with just $80 and no visible means of support – as we did 34 years ago when we moved here.)
I had known for a long time that I wanted to use the internet more in our business. With our change of strategy, it seemed the right time to do that. When I sat down to achieve it, I realized I didn’t have a clue how to do what I wanted to accomplish. To make a long story short – I started classes. I still have a long way to go, but I’ve come a long way. And I’ll reach the mark sooner or later.
TendingMyGarden.com was started after about a year of classes. I figured while I was learning about websites, what better way to learn more than to start a website about something that I know well, loved and would never get bored with.
I had been amazed (and still am) by the amount of misinformation that is online. Evidently it’s written by people who have never gardened – or not long enough to know anything. And the same-old – same-old seems to be EVERYWHERE. And of course, there’s lots and lots of what I consider BS.
My way of gardening is pretty much no-hassle. You prepare and improve your soil and the garden does its own deal after that. Of course, there are always little secrets that make growing and organic gardening even better. Dozens of ways to cut costs and save time so you’ll have much to show for your efforts. Lots of ways to get more out of your garden with less time and effort. That’s what TMG passes to you.
As you may have guessed we’ve recently had another revaluation process in our life. You may have noticed that I’ve cut back on my frequency in posting. Because of the demands of earning a living as well as the garden and other duties I’ve not had as much time to spend writing for TMG.
Just wanted you to know.
My best and warmest wishes for a wonderful fall season,
