Mission Statement, and a little bit about Outdoor Blogger Network
The idea for the Outdoor Blogger Network was born, appropriately enough, on a riverbank, via a conversation between two Outdoor bloggers.
Rebecca Garlock – The Outdooress – and Joe Wolf – Flowing Waters – were talking about a myriad of topics and blogging ideas after spending a day fly fishing for trout in Oregon. It was one of those times when things just clicked. They shared a vision that we needed a centralized place on the web for the people to find the best Outdoor related blogs.
They also believe that a unified group of Bloggers has a much better chance of being taken seriously by the Outdoor industry as a viable part of the media. It seemed that the strength of one of them complimented the strength of the other. The idea gained momentum, they bought the domain, and the Outdoor Blogger Network is the result of that stream side vision.

The Outdoor Blogger Network – OBN – was developed with the following goals in mind. We hope the site keeps us so busy that we rarely have a chance to look back at this page, but it is our intent to always keep these goals as our driving force.
1) Establish OBN as the primary site on the web for writers and readers of Outdoor related blogs to come and peruse a vast listing of the best Outdoor blogs in existence.
2) Make OBN a place all Outdoor bloggers want to check in with on a regular basis. Provide Outdoor products to bloggers to do gear reviews. Run contests. Issue challenges to bloggers to write timely and appropriate posts with regard to current issues, legislation, problems, and opportunities. Keep it fresh and enjoyable for the bloggers.
3) Offer tips to bloggers on ways to maximize their readership and create an enjoyable blogging experience.
4) Connect with the Outdoor industry as a viable part of the media. Establish a catalog of Gear reviews. Procure and send out gear to be used and reviewed by the OBN bloggers. (See more detail on reviews under the Gear Review tab)
We welcome and encourage feedback as it applies to the site.
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you asap.
Help us make Outdoor Blogger Network THE place for everyone to come, find the best Outdoor blogs, and enjoy our great outdoors just a little more!
