A note about outdoor blog links

© By Othmar Vohringer

When I started blogging about the outdoors in January of 2006 there were only a handful of us. It was easy to visit all blogs within an hour or two and leave a comment.

How things have changed since then. In just a little over three years there are now hundreds of blogs on the Internet, covering just about every imaginable aspect and interest of hunting and fishing. This is a wonderful thing and most likely does more to promot our outdoor heritage to the average person on the street than anything else.

I even would go as far as to say that it is due to the outdoors bloggers and the wealth of first hand reporting they do that has taken a huge bite out of the animal rights and anti hunting community. For the first time people have easy access to the truth about hunting and fishing.

On the downside it has become impossible for me to visit every blog. If I were to do that I easily would spend 24 hours doing just that.

This brings me to the point of this short note. It occurred to me on several occasions when I visit new blogs that the writer has linked to one of my blog(s). If I see that I will return the favor and link to that blog too. However, there might be any number of blogs out there that have linked to me and I do not know about it.

I am happy that many of you think enough of my blog(s) that you want to link to it. However, I am very much a person who believes in “one hand washes the other”.

With that said I would ask you all to help me out a bit. If you link to my blog(s) please drop me a quick note and let me know so I can return the favor by linking my blog to yours. My contact is available in the panel to the right in my profile and also further down above the blogroll where it says “Submit your Blog.”

Thanks!

I have a link to your blog on mine it is huntingwisconsin.blogspot.com

I deleted the last comment because I had made a mistake in the address. But the one above is the correct one.

I know the feeling Othmar. I've only been at this a couple of years now, and in that time the OBS blogroll has exploded.

I wish there was more time during the day, so I could read all the blogs, but unfortunately nobody has that kind of time.

I run into people who've linked to the OBS all the time and never mentioned it. It is hard to keep track of who is linking sometimes.

Thanks Deer Killer, I have added your blog to my blogroll too.

Arthur and Kristine – The outdoor blog world sure has grown enormously over the last few years. It seems every time I go online there is a few more. I looked at the OBS blogroll and was very impressed with it.
