It’s nice to see quite a few new deer hunting blogs. It seems everyday more and more outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen are jumping into blogging. Not only does this help provide a fresh perspective of other’s views but it helps to increase the outdoor communities.
When I started my blog in September, it was actually to learn about blogging for work purposes. While my husband was getting some hunting things together I decided to start a blog about the life with a hunter to see how it all works. After the first month, I was hooked on blogging and found a lot of great and supportive people within the hunting communities.
One of the things I’ve learned is if you want a successful blog you really have to take the time and visit other’s blogs and leave a comment because most likely they will return the favor. Find outdoor forums and sign up and join in on the conversations. Some may find their way to your blog and become a reader.
There has been a lot of discussion on many hunting blogs about the image of hunters. I would suggest spending the time and looking at other social networking sites. I think this is a great way to spread the word, not only about your blog, but about hunting in general. Prior to starting my blog, I wasn’t very supportive of hunting. Yes, I supported my husband who enjoyed hunting but now I’ve found myself supporting hunting in general.
What I hope to do over the next couple of weeks is list those networking sites that I’ve joined and share them here. If you are new to blogging and have setup your deer hunting blog, visit the Outdoor Bloggers Summit. They are a great supportive group.
