I would rather code my own digital garden with hand-written HTML and maybe a Mailchimp newsletter! For me, the point of writing is to leave social media, and to reflect on my thoughts in a public journal, so intertwining my writing life with social media defeats the purpose. Even though my writing is quite popular, I have never worked on creating a newsletter or monetizing my writing. I know how to, but my digital garden is meant to allow readers to reflect and contemplate, not to bombard them with more calls to action and pop-ups etc. I’m not sure if you were referring to digital gardens in the title for this post: https://maggieappleton.com/garde...

@enderm that's rad! I was referring to the "walled gardens" that I chose as poll options. From the post you linked, this quote stands out for me: "Joel focused on the process of digital gardening, emphasising the slow growth of ideas through writing, rewriting, editing, and revising thoughts in public." I think part of that process can happen on a social media platform, part can happen on a personal site, and parts can be shared in newsletter form.

Garden flies can indeed become a nuisance. They can carry diseases and contaminate food. However, there are a few things you can do to get rid of them. One of the most important things to remember is that cleanliness is key. gardenprofy

I studied landscaping at the university and I like this direction, as it is associated with landscaping and beauty. Recently, we have new neighbors and they moved into a new house where there was a completely empty piece of land and I suggested that they make a garden there so that it harmoniously fits into the atmosphere of the surrounding houses. I recommended that they contact https://aerogarden.pissedconsumer.com/customer-service.html for advice on landscaping their site and they said they plan to do so soon. Perhaps you will also be interested in this.
