As you can see these are plants from July with Christmas colors. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is looking forward to an equally excellent year in 2013.
My new year's resolution is to get more of the albums for my web page finished. I only managed to get the June Gardening album finished in 2012. This is a start on the July album. My travel page is getting further and further behind. It was nice to have the Malta trip done up for show and tell to friends who were traveling there a few months ago.
With regards to this blog, it is owned by Google and is free. You get what you pay for. I have found many of my garden photos taken from this blog and used all over the net. I think most of the photos are from older posts. Since Google changed the format for publishing to our blogspot blogs I have not been using as many tags, labels, or keywords. I think this makes it harder for the google bots to find the images and therefore I am getting fewer hits from the search bots. I find it inconvenient to add labels to my posts in this new format. This may well be a blessing in disguise. I don't need the low lifes stealing my photos, nor am I in need of hits and views on my blog, as there is no advertising here. My web page never has photos stolen. It is old fashioned and not built for being searched by the google bots and so is probably the safest place to keep my stuff. I know where it is, and I can send anyone there when I have something to show them. I own my own domain and Godaddy provides ample hosting space at very reasonable rates. I am thinking of getting another domain to use to build a wordpress blog.. perhaps in 2013. Where will I ever find the time?
