Tuesday’s…err…Wednesday’s Tracking: Base Camp Legends

May 21st, 2008

Tuesday's TrackingI know that it isn’t Tuesday, but I hated to let another week go by without posting a Tuesday’s Tracking, so it is coming on Wednesday this week.  Sorry for any confusion that may cause…I don’t want anyone missing out on a day this week!

I’m sure many of you have noticed a relative new comer to our community, Tom Sorenson.  He has been joining in on several of the conversations around our little circle of bloggers, and I thought I’d point my tracker in his direction today.

Tom has started Base Camp Legends with his Father, Gary.  The stated goal of the project is to provide a way for hunters to have a place to tell their hunting stories, and share their memories.  They are set up so that you can sign up for your own blogging account, and write about your hunting exploits.  They are already getting a few bloggers signed up, and have some very good stories posted.  Make sure you get over there and read some of those stories.

This was a great idea!  It gives people the opportunity to hook up in a community that is focused specifically on their interests, hunting.  It provides a place that we can go and read stories from all over the country about hunting different game species.  I suspect that many who sign up over there will start branching out from just hunting stories, and start blogging about their lives, much like we do in our more unorganized community.  This will also provide a great opportunity for us to meet up with new bloggers who are just getting started, and bring them into our current community.  I know that another platform, Skinny Moose Media, has been very successful in connecting hunters, and it has been through them that I have made a lot of contact with other bloggers.  If you know someone who would like to get started in blogging, but they don’t know where to go, point them over to Tom’s website.  It would be a great place to start, especially if you don’t want to set up your own hosting account, and don’t have the technical know how to set up your own blog.  Its free to use, so why not give it a try?

Welcome to our community, Tom.  We look forward to reading your blog, and those that hook up with you on your platform!
