You think this blog is overly specialized?

Over and over again, outside of work, when I tell people about this site, their reaction is frequently: How on earth do you find enough to write about? At which point I could point out that I have on occasion gone months without posting anything, but the problem there is more one of being busy (sometimes) or lazy (more often) and not a lack of material. As any one who has actually had a conversation with me about fruits can attest, I never run out of material.

Still, it gives me a little secret pleasure every time I find a fruit blog more specialized than mine, especially when said blog is extensive and well-written. Granted that almost never happens. But here's one case where it actually did:

Adam's Apples

Adam writes exclusively about apples. In fact, he writes almost exclusively about apple cultivars, which he tastes, photographs, and describes with surprising regularity (several times a week, pretty much continuously since July). I've been meaning to post the link for ages but I don't think I have. Of course, I never remember what I've posted if I don't post it immediately after finding it, so for all I know I just post the same three links over and over around here. This one merits a link over on the side, as well.

Update: I've been digging through the archives at Adam's Apples, and came across this episode, which amused me:

The Adventure of the Scarlet Blush
Mystery Managed (The non-Holmesian conclusion)
Scarlet Blush, Conclusion (the more appropriate conclusion)

Now I'm thinking I need more fictional detectives around here.

No, I don't think your blog is overly specialized. As a matter of fact the reason I added you to my feed reader and to "Google for Gardeners" is because you are are focused on one specific aspect of "gardening."

If it was just another garden blog I probably wouldn't have been as interested as I am. I'd love to see more specialized blogs that aren't retail based, myself.

You think my Apples are narrowly focused? A few clicks back you review a blog devoted exclusively to Durians. (Which from what I've heard are sufficient to put the "evil" in "Evil Fruit Lord.") Now there's an idee fixe.

Nice place you've got here, melord. An amateur like me enjoys listening in on this stuff. And I'm pleased you enjoyed Watson's little story--I enjoyed writing it.

Yes, but the Durian people are all insane, so they don't really count.

And thanks, to both of you... I'm glad you enjoy the site. (I'm just impressed anybody wanted to read my prattlings-on about fruit).
