A few days ago Matt sent me an email requesting my input on an article he was working on. The article Finding Time to Blog About the Outdoors is all about how to make, or find, the time in a hectic time schedule consisting of work, family and now with the hunting season just around the corner, time spent in the woods to scout and prepare stand locations.
It’s a very well written article with lots of information and ideas of how different bloggers, that where interviewed for this article, deal with that pressing issue of making the time to write a blog entry every day. Writing takes time, most bloggers are in agreement that it takes about an hour out of each day to write. Plus another hour or so is spent visiting other outdoor blogs.
Sitting on a desk in front of the computer is for many hunters, including me, a bit of a contradiction. As hunters we love to spend as much time outdoors as humanly possible looking for game or just enjoying our great nature. Yet, in order to inform others about hunting and our great heritage we’re “forced” to sit inside and write about hunting or hunting related issues.
Today I came across a brand new blog. Thanks Kristine for pointing that blog out to me. It says in Bryan’s profile that he is a freelance outdoor writer and speaker. This makes him somewhat related to me, at least the speaking part. I am an aspiring outdoor writer that feels much more comfortable talking about hunting than writing. Bryan is currently studying for his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. A few days ago he started his blog DeerPHD. So far he has written three articles, but judging from these articles Bryan will no doupt leave a very positive mark in the outdoor blogging world.
Talking about new blogs destined to make an impression. The Wild WoodsWoman is another noteworthy new blog on the blogger horizion that shines a bright and refreshing light. I am particularly pleased that more and more woman find the way into blogging, giving us their point of view. This was the blog that I have been meaning to write in depth about just the day before my computer decided to give up for good on me.
Next week I will finally make the time to take up Kristine’s challenge to write an article about a hunter and wildlife conservation grassroots organization or group. I have chosen my topic, now it is just a matter of managing the time to write the article.
