This week marks the fifth year since I wrote the first post on this blog. During that time the blog underwent many changes until it looked like now. The idea to start a blog came to me when I searched the Internet for some hunting information and came upon the Sportsman’s Blog, written by fellow outdoor writer Jim Braaten.
Immediately I thought that this is a great way to provide information and stay in touch with the readers. Over time I realized that a blog is the ideal vehicle to reach people that are not involved in hunting. To me that was an important issue amidst all the animal rights and anti hunting agenda cluttering the Internet I felt it is important to provide our view so non-hunters could make informed decision.
I was surprised how quickly “Outdoors with Othmar Vohringer” generated a following. This blog reached 100 viewers within the first week of its creation. This in turn encouraged me to launch. “Whitetail Deer Passion” and shortly after that I created a blog about my second most favourite game animal. “Wild Turkey Fever”.
While blogging takes a commitment and work it also has been very rewarding for me in many different ways. As the blog grew from a humble 100 visitors per week to over 90,000 per year the industry started to take notice, I am frequently asked to assist in the promotion of products and I received quite a few writing assignments from editors that read this and my other blogs. Last but by no means least, I appreciate more than words can express all the comments and emails I receive from my readers and I am thrilled that my blogs have helped some people to improve their hunting skills.
So here is to another five years of “Otdoors with Othmar Vohringer” and I say thank you to everyone for the tremendous support and encouragement you have given me over the past five years.
