Tuesday’s Tracking: Hunt Smart, Think Safety

February 12th, 2008

Deer TracksToday’s Tracking goes out to Kristine over at the Hunt Smart, Think Safety blog. But, this is a double, as Kristine is also one of the writers over at the Outdoor Bloggers Summit (along with some others that will surely pop up in this feature in the future!)

Kristine keeps a great blog, although she says she is very busy and unable to post as much as usual. She focuses a lot of time on safety issues that fits well with the product that her blog is associated with, the GunTriever. It appears that the GunTriever is like a safety belt for your gun. It can be used to raise your gun into your tree stand, but also tethers the gun to your stand in case you accidentally drop it from the stand.

Kristine is also kicking the idea around of selling branded materials to other outdoor enthusiasts. Her parent company has the ability to produce embroidered and screen printed logo wear. I am sure that she will continue to keep us posted on the progression of this idea as it develops.

The Outdoor Bloggers Summit Blog has been a good resource. Kristine and the other writers over there have been great about publishing information that is very helpful for those of us who are newer bloggers, and don’t really know the ropes. I recently was reading some about linking, which is very important in gaining page rank, as well as building readership. I am just now really getting to the point of “publicizing” my writing, so everything they put up about being successful at blogging is beneficial to me.

Kristine is also very supportive when it comes to other bloggers.  I know it didn’t take her long to find my blog, and start leaving valuable comments and encouragement.  I enjoy writing, and have been doing it for quite a while, even though I didn’t have much of a readership.  However, when folks start leaving comments about what you are writing, it seems to be that much more relevant.  Kristine jumps in there and shares her ideas quite often.

Keep up the good work Kristine, at both of your blogs, and keep those valuable comments coming!

  1. Thank you for the nice comments about the blogs I write. I’m glad you found the OBS helpful, as that’s what we have been hoping it would be.

    I’m pretty excited about the logowear idea. It is such a no brainer for Gun Safety Innovations as our parent company has been doing such work for years. I just have to figure out how to set up the program. Sometimes I need to be twins!

    Again, I appreciate the kind words. Thank you very much.

  2. Kristine’s blog is a very good source for some good writing and the outdoor blogger’s summit site has been very informative as well. I read both of them on a regular basis.

  3. I too appreciate Kristine’s contributions to my blog – even though I don’t have a strictly outdoors blog she visits it regularly and I appreciate it!

  4. Kristine is a great writer and contributor to the outdoor community and I know a lot of us that appreciate all of her kindness.

  5. Yes, Kristine is an asset to OBS and I really enjoy reading her blog about safety, etc. Kristine is everywhere leaving comments and words of encourgement. She stays on top of things. Her company is very fortunate to have her on board and so are we. 🙂
