Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
Well, here we go! This first post is a significant step in documenting my experiences practicing bonsai.. and of course a place to track progress and showcase my trees. When I first considered blogging about my bonsai journey, I was hesitant. With so much incredible bonsai content online, I doubted my humble perspective would add much let alone be seen amongst all the action. Through several failed efforts, I have struggled with documenting progress and learned techniques. Usually resorting to all information kept in a most disorganized file retrieval system…my brain. I have learned the importance of documenting experiences, a post on record keeping coming soon! I hope to one day share these experiences with my children. They have expressed great interest in bonsai and if anything, documenting my journey could be enjoyable, maybe even helpful to them and even others.
So who’s this blog really for?
I feel there will be something to offer for a wide experience range from beginners to professionals alike. Ultimately we all do this out of passion for working with these little trees. I hope to share that passion and experience.
I decided to go “live” with this site even in it’s state of early development. As I tackle the learning curve of the tech and feel out the functions and aesthetic of the site, it will improve over time, like bonsai. I will eventually tag posts with categories based on topics ,skill level, season timing etc. in order to make things easier to retrieve. I’m just getting this blog going, so stay tuned for more.
