I’ve had a number of requests to add a forum lately and I love the idea.
Rather than just communicate on a one-to-one basis via email, I’d really like to put all of these questions and answers out in the open so others can benefit and participate in the discussion as well. I had initially tried a forum several months ago using a WordPress plugin, but I found it sort of lacking and was immediately overrun with spam registrations and other bullshit. After messing with a few different forums, I settled on phpBB and like how it works so far.
Now, I definitely need your help to get this thing going. If you like the site, have a question, or just want to chat with like-minded people who enjoy this hobby, I encourage you to sign up and make a post. I’ve talked with so many interesting people with great ideas and insights just through the “Contact” button on the site, and would love to get these ideas and inspirations out where everyone can see them, critique them, adopt them, improve them, and so on. One of my main goals when I started writing here was to really focus on community and bring other people who are into this little niche together – I think this is the way to do it and I hope to see you all there.
The addition of the forum doesn’t mean I’m going to stop writing the blog – I intend to continue doing what I’m doing – this is just a means to get everyone more involved and get some input from all of the brilliant minds out there.
I’ve added a link to the forum on the main menu, or you can just punch in ledgardener.com/forum to reach it as well. Without a doubt, things will be rocky to start, but we’ll get it figured. As always, I’m open to feedback as well.
Now get your ass over there and post something!
