Carter’s Garden Blog


Blogging Milestones | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I like to set goals and meet them! I also like to mark Milestones… Today is the 600th day that I have turned out a daily blog! Whew! It sure doesn’t seem like it’s been that long… Time flies! And – Yes, I have been having Fun! 😊

When I committed to a daily Blog it was a HUGE step! And at first it was a real challenge, but it seems to get easier and more fun the longer I keep the commitment 😊

As many of you know, I started blogging in 2008, but not daily… more weekly and monthly, AND I haven’t missed a month since 2008! But, It wasn’t until January 1st 2018 that I made the decision to blog daily. Now, it’s just part of what I do… And, my blog has developed some daily themes that I hope you like…

Mondays are a video of a stream and/or Waterfall, usually one that we  built, and it’s titled “Monday Morning Moment of Zen”…

Tuesdays and Thursdays are my ‘freelance days’… lately I have been doing my Blog or Vlog On Outdoor Living, focusing on Outdoor Lifestyle Areas (Spaces, patios, outdoor kitchens,outdoor rooms, etc.).

Wednesday (Hump Day) Is ALL about Waterfalls! And – KOI!

Fridays I do a Local Talk Radio Show (The ‘180’ with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass) and I follow the show up with a Blog about what was covered. I call it – The “Friday Radio Report”.

Saturdays I try to Blog about the my Nursery. What’s HOT, Events that are happening and, what is going on in & around the garden.

Sundays Blog is called “Sunday Reflections…” Sunday is a day of rest, reflection and time with my family. I try to share a inspirational thought, poem or story.

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to read my Blogs or watch my Vlogs! Especially to everyone who has “Followed” my Blog! I have gotten many new Followers each & every month this year! Thanks! & WOW! Plus – I have tried to make it easy and painless to follow my blog.

Milestones! July 19th = 200 Days Strait of BLOGGING! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yes! Today is day 200 of 2018! There’s only 165 Days left in this calendar year… Which leaves only 158 Shopping Days before Christmas 🎄 😳 The Milestone for me? I have successfully turned out a Blog Post every day this year! Bam! … I don’t want to kick up my heels too high or break my arm pattin myself on the back 😊 BUT, I really feel a sense of accomplishment with what this Blog has turned into!

Wow! I’ve been blogging part time for some time now (10 years), but this year I decided to go to a Daily Blog… I can sum it up in one word! FUN!

Now that I have really gotten into the grove of writing everyday, the task has gotten to be FUN! I look forward to writing. I find myself scribbling down ideas for future blogs all the time. Sometimes while writing a blog, another idea jumps in my head and I find myself writing another and another… Videos and pictures have become more fun too 😊
