Sunset Magazine!

OK, so this isn't quite what I envisioned in my enduring fantasy of being in Sunset Magazine (kicking self for not majoring in journalism or English). Still, this is pretty fantastic!

In its March issue, Sunset included my oddly URLed little Garden Bliss blog in a list of "go-to sources for cooking, gardening and living well in the West."

I will try to post a link to the article if it shows up online. Until then, I did happen to scan the page in order to preserve it for all eternity... and for kicks.

Kicks don't pay the bills, though, so if I continue blogging myself into the soup line, it's a good thing I'll have Sunset Magazine to read while I'm waiting for my rations.

May I take this opportunity to say that I think the print version of Sunset Magazine just keeps getting better and better? Pretty impressive feat at a time when many magazines have become thinly veiled adverzines or, failing that, have gone to that great magazine stand in the sky. And have you seen lately? Wow! It's gorgeous... and slick... and educational... and interactive. Kudos, Sunset.


  1. Angela - this is wonderful news! I have long enjoyed Sunset and your blog. Congratulations on the press. And yes, Sunset just keeps getting better and better.

    Each month when my Sunset appears in my mailbox, I usually block out an hour to pore over each page. What a wonderful surprise to see your blog mentioned! Yours is among one of my well used bookmarks. I only wish you posted more!! Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations! It's so fun to have ones talents recognized in public. And even my husband, who hates house and garden magazines, looks at Sunset.

  4. Thanks, Katie, Anon and PeonInChief!

    Here Here! Congratulations Angela. And I second the wish that you post more often. I expect you have a pretty full life, but I for one delight in your interests, your photos and your bright and skillful writing.

    And I love that "first day of spring" quote on your main page. I'm still waiting for things to begin looking "spring-y" in our neck of the (far north) woods.

  6. Thanks, Garden Gran. I will be blogging again soon, and hope to clarify my temporary silence. Let's just say that Garden Limbo would be a more appropriate name for my blog at the moment. That's about all I can say for now.

  7. How exciting! Congratulations for the mention in Sunset magazine. You know I am a frequent visitor here -- during peak gardening season anyway:). Keep up the great work! It sounds like you are hinting at something bigger coming down the pike. Perhaps a venture that combines your love of gardening, photography, blogging and that is lucrative as well? Can't wait to hear about it.

  8. Good for you! Congratulations!

  9. Wow! Congratulations for the mention in Sunset magazine. I am so surprise to see your blog mentioned. I have enjoyed sunset and your blog. thank you for shearing your post.
