My name is Tracy Godsey, although you may have seen my articles around the web under the pen name Tracy S. Morris. I am a fiction and freelance writer with a degree in Journalism and a passion for writing.
I do not have a formal education in agriculture (I was not even a member of the FFA in high school), but I did grow up on a farm. My first lessons in gardening came while planting the eyes of potatoes along with my grandfather. Everything else that I know about gardening, I learned through trial, error and research.
I have written thousands of articles on gardening that may be found across the internet. I recently decided to take all of that knowledge and put it into producing my own blog instead of filling websites for others.
In addition to gardening, I also write fiction. To date, I have published two mystery novels. You can learn more about my fiction writing at my writer’s website, Tracy S. Morris.com.
A Word About Photography:
Most photos that appear in this blog are personal photos. My two primary methods of taking the images are my Nikon D70 and my iPhone camera phone. I will make some efforts to improve the photos through digital software known as GIMP, which is a GNU image manipulation software program with a platform similar to Photoshop. If you would like to use any of the photos that appear on my page, please ask permission before copying them. In most cases, any photo that does not have a © Eden’s Container copyright symbol on them may be reproduced in exchange for a link back to this blog. If the © appears on the photo, it is available for use with a licensing fee.
Whenever I do not use one of my own photos, I use pictures that are in public domain or distributed through creative commons or similar licensing. My primary sources for these photos are the websites USA.gov and Public Domain Pictures.net If you see that I have inadvertently violated a copyright or used a photo for other than it’s intended purpose, please contact me and I will take the photo down immediately.
Please contact me before you copy any article for use in a newsletter or on your own blog. I am perfectly happy to allow anyone to use one of my articles for a nonprofit newsletter that appears in print such as a gardening club newsletter or church bulletin provided that Eden’s Containers is credited, and you ask permission first. I am also willing to pass on my primary resources for you so that you can write your own article. If you wish to interview me, I am also willing to participate in an interview.
I’m not interested in selling the articles that appear on Eden’s Container as content for another blog. But as a freelance journalist, I would be happy to write web content for your blog for a fee (which may be as little as a link back to Eden’s Container). Feel free to contact me to negotiate rates.
