On Thursday, August 9th, I'll be a participating as a panelist for SNA's Forum 2007 Media Day Lunch along with several other industry, garden writer experts. I've been asked to speak and discuss new/ social media and blogging as it relates to "Trends in Garden Communications". I'm looking forward to hearing the thoughts and ideas of the other panelists and sharing a few of my own!
