Ok, first thing is first, I have been a blog slacker. It's not that I haven't been busy with the usual fishy stuff, I've just been up to my ears in other things as well. Plus, the video blog I am going to publish later today has taken a while to edit while I learn my way around a Mac. However, keep an eye out, the reports will be coming fast and furious over the next week - including the Froggy Waters Outdoors Slam recap.
Not long after I started blogging, I stumbled onto a site called the Outdoor Blogger Network. The folks there run a site that acts as an uber directory for anyone who blogs about the outdoors. The blogs you can find there range from fishing to hunting to cooking to nature to just about anything tied to the outdoors. This week, they hit their 1 year anniversary - an awesome moment for the rapidly growing site. All outdoor blogs are encouraged to join as long as they meet certain (very basic) requirements. The perks from OBN run deep including weekly free gear giveaways, promotion of blogger events, forums, and all sorts of contests. It has been an awesome resource for me as an outdoor writer and helped me connect with tons of other bloggers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. I owe them a lot of thanks for everything they do....happy birthday/anniversary/1 year success! Check them out!
