ABOUT OUTDOOR BLOGGERS
There are a plethora of blogger networks out there – fashion, food, beauty and lifestyle bloggers are all very well catered for. But as Outdoor Bloggers we tend to do our own thing and organise our own adventures as individuals or groups of friends. Jenni from The Thrifty Magpies Nest and Zoe from Splodz Blogz want to give Outdoor Bloggers the chance to meet other like-minded bloggers and share our passion for the outdoors. If you are a blogger who loves the outdoors then this group is for you.
Whether you are a professional blogger or a hobby blogger, it doesn’t matter, everyone is welcome. Just as long as you are a blogger who writes about the outdoors; walking, hiking, climbing, cycling, running, adventure, camping, surfing, exploring, travel, farming, sustainable living, the environment, scouting, and anything else you can think of. If you blog about anything outdoors related then you should get involved.
MEET THE ORGANISERS
Jenni and Zoe started Outdoor Bloggers as a way to meet bloggers just like us, expand our social network and create opportunities for future activities. Find out more about us on our own blogs, both of which feature the outdoors a lot!
Jenni is a Yorkshire lass blogging about life in the woods and her passion for nature and the outdoors. She loves hiking in the hills, watching birds and collecting skulls. Her blog is full of money saving tips and adventure trips.
Zoe believes that life is all about the journey – we have to make the most of the travelling. Trying new things is a sure way to making memories that last a lifetime. Splodz Blogz aims to demonstrate that life is all about the journey by encouraging readers to try new things. I focus mainly on the outdoors, travel, adventure, and having fun experiences at home and away.
MEET THE CONTRIBUTORS
If it's a nice sunny day, you're sure to catch Vivian outside climbing, running or adventuring with her friends. She's half the face of the blog, Angus and Vivian Adventures. She's a fellow American who transplanted herself in Glasgow, Scotland for a master's degree. Now, she's back in the states but her heart is still in the UK. She's an avid rock climber, world traveler hiker, free diver, trail runner, and loves all things outside.
As someone that is sat behind a desk most days during his day job, Mark approaches his outdoor adventures as a way to keep himself fit and his legs working. He's a lover of the heights and a practitioner of cramming as much as possible into a day walk, and therefore can be found mainly doing long strenuous hikes around the hills of northern England (especially the Dark Peak), as well as the odd bit of scrambling in Snowdonia. Also a big fan of 24 hour challenge walks, Mark runs his own blog, Hill Explorer, where he details all of his walking routes.
Glyn has been a Hill Walker since he was a teenager. Now in his 60's he spends most weekends walking in the Brecons. He aims to encourage and inspire the 'older generation' to get out into the hills and rediscover life through his walking and blogging. Whilst his blog is targeted at the over 60's the content is relevant to every age group as it covers all aspects of walking. Glyn draws on his experience as a field craft, navigation and survival instructor and tries to convince everyone that It is better to be on the hill – Than over the hill.
Lyndon is drawn by the siren song of the heights, long views down into distant valleys, and ravens tumbling in a pewter sky. His blog has been about his recovery from a mountaineering accident for the last couple of years, but he hopes to get back to writing about hills and wildlife this spring. He is a terrible coffee snob. No, he's really awful; just don't get him started.
DONATE TO OUTDOOR BLOGGERS
We run Outdoor Bloggers in our spare time alongside our full-time jobs and our personal blogs. Membership of Outdoor Bloggers is totally free as we want to bring together as many like-minded people from the blogosphere as possible.
We rely on donations and money from our own pockets to pay for any costs we incur for running Outdoor Bloggers. If you are an Outdoor Bloggers member, a brand or just someone who enjoys reading about what our members get up to, it would be wonderful if you could donate a pound or two to help cover our costs.
