Outdoor Bloggers Summit

I just recently came across a site on the internet that I truely think is a worthwhile cause. As most of you know I seldom promote another site in a post on "Kennys Great Outdoors." But today is different, I try to promote the outdoors as much as I possibly can.

If you search the net you will find that there are several Outdoor related blogs and sites, But are relatively few compared to all the other types of blogs and sites outthere. I have tried to list my blog in several blog directories that don't even have an appropriate catagory to list an outdoor blog. I am not kidding! I think that , that falls in a catagory of "discrimination" But we won't get into that here.

I truely believe we as outdoorsmen and/or outdoorswomen, should support these kind of organizations or websites that endorse the outdoors and the different activities related to the outdoors.

The Outdoor Bloggers Summit

Is an organization of outdoors writers across the web promoting conservation, outdoors sports, and even an annual meeting for outdoors bloggers across the globe.

Outdoor Bloggers Summit mission statement:

* Support conservation efforts and positively portray the value of outdoor pursuits
* Encourage and support the efforts of existing outdoor bloggers
* Offer incentive and support for new bloggers who might wish to blog about the outdoors
* Unite the voices of bloggers so we can speak as one about critical issues that effect outdoor pursuits.
* Provide a clearinghouse for information about outdoor pursuits

These are mainly the reasons I support the Outdoor Bloggers Summit. If you would like to support Outdoor bloggers and the Outdoor Bloggers Summit. Simply click on the link/ or links in this post, click on the banner on the right column of this blog. It looks like the picture in this post.You can also click on the title of this post and go to the site. You can find all the details about Outdoor Bloggers Summit and the details of how you can support them on your blog or website.

This way we can ensure that outdoor sites and blogs and even , the "Great Outdoors" will be handed down to the next generations with all the information necessary to ensure that the outdoors will be here forever and ever.

Until next time , Keep your hooks wet, your outdoors activities safe, and remember to enjoy
"The Great Outdoors!"
