Blogversation 2012: Wrapping up a year of online conversation

Blogversation LogoThroughout this year, several bloggers have engaged in a conversation here and on their blogs — asking questions of each other and responding.  It’s been an honor to share Newvine Growing with these smart, thoughtful, articulate, committed women:

Every week, one of the Blogversationists has shared a question and the rest of us chimed in with responses. Below is a purposely random sample of questions from the year, mixed up to show the range from serious to silly, political to practical.

You can read the whole year’s worth of questions, and share your thoughts, by clicking here. Or you can just pop around below and see what gets you thinking.

I’m wrapping up my fourth year with Newvine Growing. If you’ve ever stumbled onto a blog that hasn’t been updated in months, or if you have one yourself, you might know that keeping up with writing regularly can be a challenge — I don’t get paid to blog, I don’t have a boss monitoring my output, so it’s all about self motivation. Having these ladies generously share their thoughts renewed my enthusiasm for blogging. I wanted to give their excellent contributions a worthy home.

Thanks to all the bloggers for making 2012 my best year ever for traffic and content. I’m grateful for all you’ve done, a sliver of which is shown below:
