In other news:
Over on the Outdoor Blogging Tips section of the OBN, I posted a helpful hint about using what I’ve deemed an Online Calling Card in various online hubs.
It’s an About Me page you can set up, use in your email signature lines, link to from various social sites and help consolidate all your hangouts.
Check out the post here: Online Calling Card: About Me
Around the Outdoor Blogging Community:
Tales of a Mountain Mama reviewed some fantastic summer outdoor clothing for kids and with that, she is giving away iPlay swimwear for the little ones. Go check it out: Outfitting the Kids for Summer + iPlay giveaway (ends June 12th)
A Share: I wanted to share this story I discovered from the Community News.
Over on Snug Harbor Bay, I read about how Kim wanted a very special gift for a graduation present. By searching and connecting with another OBN member, she was able to have Ed from The Four Seasons Angler build a custom and quite special rod.
Now you should go read the story, look at all the pictures and enjoy the smile it will give you. The post is here: Chablis & Her Custom Rod
Ok, that’s it for this week!
