One thing leads to another...

...I always hoped my garden blogging would eventually pay. I used to write a pretty fantastic gardening blog over at OregonLive for no money. Well, they're still not paying, and how they hobble along over there is beyond me. It's kind of sad. But not for me.....because now I have a column! Yes, my very own column in print, every two weeks February -Summer, you can read Sassy Gardener in Just Out, Portland's LGBTQ newspaper. My first article is out today, and it's even on-line. I'm answering gardening questions, so if you have any for me, send 'em my way and your question may just end up in print.

^5 sister! Nicely done. Jealous as all get out, getting paid to write about something you love. I have tons of ideas for your column if you ever get stuck.
Yeah for Lelo!!

I'm paying you?

LeLo in NoPo said...

No Marty, I think you're paying the Sassy Gardner.

Congratulations! Someone brings a copy of JO into our office and we get to read it during slack times; I've always liked it–it's a great news and information source as well as typically has some very good writing.

It'll be nice to see your column there. I don't garden, but I do like to read good writing. I'm sure you'll deliver that.
