Bee blogs

Finally getting around to updating my blog pages, so more blogs about bees and beekeeping will be added over the coming weeks. If you have a blog about bees (honeybees, solitary or bumbles) or beekeeping, and are interested in a reciprocal link, please contact me. And if I follow your bee blog and it is not here – it will be soon!

In his own words: ‘I’d tried meditation retreats, I’d tried working for myself, I’d tried mentoring children, I’d even tried a serious relationship. But after nearly 38 years there was still nothing that answered the question ‘what should I do with my life?’ Now I’ve found the answer: beekeeping.’

  1. I like your idea of listing blogs like this. I have many people that I want to recognize. I started to do it like I show in my most recent Friday Flower Fiesta post as a dedication, but that would take me about five years to get everyone in. I like your way better. Might I swipe your idea?

  2. Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I’m glad to find yours since I’m new to all this. I’ve already found some good information and will likely link to your info on a future blog post. I’m learning myself as I look for information to educate my customers about all my ingredients.

    • Thank you, Nancy, that’s a great idea. WordPress community is very friendly and supportive, it’s a great place to blog and for bloggers to support and learn from each other. I look forward to reading your posts also! :)

  3. Hello Emma, thank you so much for following my blog. I think yours is beautiful. I have been reading about bees and subscribing to bee magazines for years but this is my first actual hive. I can’t wait to share my experiences and feel honored that you’d like to read them. Take good care.
