We Have New Website!
This is a brand new website; I am so excited! When I started Zone4 in 2005 I was just coming out of a 25 year run in the software industry so being shy on resources and rich with time, I hand coded the website. It was a lot of fun and served its purpose for quite a few years, with some tweaking and minor content updates along the way. Then as it became sadly antiquated technologically, as well as in style and content, every winter I swore that I was going to update it, but alas, there was always too much “real” work to do or other shinier pursuits to chase. Well finally this winter I asked for help and voilà, it seems like there is actually a Zone4 website out in the world that does not require a litany of apologies.
And it has a blog! I am very excited about having a blog. Now I guess I am going to have to write stuff on a regular basis or look like a loser. I actually like to write but have never been able to dive into really becoming a blogger so just having a little blog attached to this website suits me. I do write a column for a our monthly local newspaper called Garden Therapy, so I seeded this blog with some past columns just so this first post doesn’t feel so lonely. One problem with my newspaper column is that even though it is online, http://andesgazette.net/news/authors-contributors/mel-bellar/, most of my readers only view it in its 8.5×11 hard copy format. As a result I don’t get any feedback or generate discussions unless I someone comments when I run into them at the post office (we are very rural) or at some fabulous event. So I hope that you do comment so I don’t always feel like I am talking to myself.
Thanks for visiting!
