A Look Back at 2021

Since we opened our site in June a few months ago, our writing team has been hard at work producing content. Not only did we establish our main pages and sections, but we covered several species that are ideal for beginners. Here are the tops ones enjoyed by our readers:

We also had a series that dealt with office executives and workplaces with bonsais, as well as a dedicated article on different types of bonsais and how to care for them. We’ve also had several of the related posts performing well, as many of you have been asking questions about them. Here are the top 10 bonsai articles you have read the most on our site from highest-ranking to lowest:

Of course, we plan on delivering much more content in the year to come. We already have some plans, some of which we aren’t ready to share just yet. What we can tell you is that we’ll be covering more bonsai species so that none are absent, we’re looking into how we can engage more with you, perhaps with a forum, and expect more interaction on our social media platforms.

We’re also getting ready to start making video guides to show you how to care for your bonsais. We know this type of media is popular, as it’s easier to see how to perform tasks with images instead of text. Our team is getting excited to take on this new approach.

Check Out Our Brand New Bonsai Map!

One of our greatest achievements is the new bonsai map produced by our amazing web designer, Irakli. We decided not to resort to the standard Google Map you can find on any other bonsai site. He worked hard these last few months hunting down locations and placing them on the map. We’ve covered a few countries for now, but you can be sure there will be more coming! So if you still need to buy a bonsai gift for someone, make sure to check the map.

May You All Have a Wonderful Festive Season!

We want to thank everyone again for the amazing support. Please be careful this festive season, as it’s always a dangerous time of the year when traveling. May you have a blessed Christmas and a fantastic New Year!

Shaun has two passions in life that combine into an extravagant show on Bonsai Alchemist. The one is for writing and the second bonsais. He’s been writing fantasy and horror novels since 2000, while also creating online content since 2015. He’s involved with writing for films and games. Finally, he’s also the owner of a book publishing company.

He received his first bonsai as a gift in 2009 and has been growing several species in his quiet home in South Africa. He prefers propagating new life instead of buying bonsais at the store. His son and daughter share his love for nature, while his wife stares on at her introverted hermit husband.
