Whilst I like the idea, I also know it would be too much for me to try and run a separate blog to the same level of quality and success as this one. Besides, I believe a separate blog wouldn't reach as wide an audience and I do love weaving in these posts amongst all the other things which interest me.
Therefore, I was very pleased when Google implemented their Pages function earlier this year as this seemed to provide a good compromise. However, having started to sort through the hundreds of links I've bookmarked and filed under Public Planting, I've also realised that I can't really do them justice within a single page.
So I've classified the links I have into a number of key categories, which will be explained briefly on my new Page and over the next few weeks I'll be publishing as series of posts, one for each category. I'll then be linking to these posts on my Page and once the final one is published, then it will be as well. Hopefully you'll find them interesting in its own right and if you've found something useful which should be included, then do please get in touch.
The posts will also be updated as appropriate when any new useful resources come to my attention and of course may be split down even further if and when any of them become unwieldy. The categories I've identified so far (in no particular order) are:
- Academic/Professional Organisations - UK
- Non-UK Resources
- Techniques and Best Practice
Sometimes I wonder if I should have been a librarian, as the urge to categorise and file information is a strong force within me ;)
