Almost there….

To the wonderful members who have persisted with this site while we have been building Version 2 it is time to confirm that the new site is almost complete. Thank you for your patience.

We have had a few of our esteemed gurus – namely Diana, Crafty Gardener, Jean, Nell Jean and Esther – beta testing the site and it is slowly coming together. The new and improved Picks feature is undergoing its final development stage and once this is up and running we will invite a few more of you to continue with the testing.

Diana already has a list of who will make up this next list but if you want to ensure then feel free to comment to this thread.

Looking forward to new beginnings….

    (Stuart, one day, you need a Blot 2 favicon for this blog)
    Can’t wait to Blotanise with the next layer! It speaks to the deep value of Blotanical and the links we’ve forged with you Stuart and with our Blotanists and BlotSprouts – that we ARE waiting persistently and hopefully.

    This is good news indeed. Blotanical may have become a sleepy little town, but so many of us have still logged in often to welcome newcomers and visit old friends. Stuart you are jewel for creating such a site and for persevering with creating Version 2. I look forward to the next version and would enjoy testing the beta version should you need more help.
    Also looking forward to a new beginning…
