Outdoor Bloggers Teleconference

Bring! Bring! The phone was picked up and for the first time I heard the voices of most of my outdoor blogging friends. Kevin had organized the conference call and was the facilitator for the meeting. Kristine was there and was named as the organizational manager. Othmar, Marian, Jon and Matt and the Captain all said our hellos and it was hard to talk business because we were all so excited to talk, but we got down to business.
The object is to organize an Outdoor Bloggers Summit. A convention if you will.
1.- the summit is open to anyone that blogs about any aspect of the outdoors.
Hiking, Birding, Nature, Outdoor Sports, Guns, Hunting, Rock Climbing, you name it. We also want the readers that do not blog to visit. Everyone loves a convention!
2.- We talked about location and timing. right now it seems wise to go where a large outdoor show is going on and kind of piggyback on it. the SHOT SHOW came up but nothing is set.
3.- A web page for sharing of info and for people to leave their URL's and thoughts is being created. Othmar also is going to set a forum up for insider discussion.
4.- There was discussion of sponsors too. If you have a product or outdoor service and want to have some recognition at the summit. Contact us. We want to have a large crowd and are very interested in everyone having an input.
5.- I think our organizational teleconference was a success. It will take a while to get it going, but it will be fun. Email one of us or leave a comment and we will get back to you.
6. Mrs. Vohringer (I hope) is going to design a small widget as a link to the forum and the new website that each of us will place on our site for easy access to the new site. Hopefully it will be up soon.
7.- Spread the word!
UPDATE!!!! Here is the temp link---- Outdoor Bloggers Summit

Sorry I missed it. My "real" job trumped the call. As far as my $.02 goes, why don't we plan it around the SHOT Show. It only makes sense that we outdoor bloggers are in town when the industry is in town. It also might be a good way for Upland Feathers and et al, get the industry's ear. Let me know the next time we're getting together. I'm make sure I'm on the call.

Go Rex!

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to go back and update the Outdoor Blogging Summit Blog later today. I added the blog to my blogroll as well.

Sorry I missed it too. I forgot to ask the time of the teleconference.

An Association is the right way to go. “Outdoor Bloggers Association”, we have to call it something!

Start out with a list of members, a mission, 3 or 4 main objectives and develop it from there.

We’ll just flop around if we don’t start simple. Everyone has some great ideas, but let’s define what we want to accomplish, how we are going to do it and then move ahead

Matt said...

Good post. I enjoyed finally talking to you Rex.

Jon is right. Without an objective we won't be flying in formation.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
