Today I have added the blog Breath of Fresh Air to the feed list. Each post features a beautiful picture of some one thing from nature, and some commentary from the author, "Nature Lover." Some may know that Nature Lover is also the tech savvy and writing author of Grandma's Goulash and Warped Egg.
She writes of herself, "My mobility became severly restricted several years ago and I spend most of my time inside. I still miss everything about the outdoors, but I have learned to adapt. My computer has facilitated the process by allowing me to take digital journeys through the outdoors and around the world. If you are tied to your home, stuck in an office or just love the outdoors, I hope you'll stop by for a daily Breath Of Fresh Air."
Mon@rch's Nature Blog has been added to the list. Several people contribute to the content. The primary author is Tom: He has 15 years of experience in the Environmental Education and Field Biologist field. He received his bird banding permit in 1998, became a certified bird bander by the North American Banding Council in the fall of 2003, is currently the crew leader for a Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship (MAPS) station; Principal Investigator in looking at the changing butterfly fauna in Allegany State Park, NY and the status and ecology of the Northern Saw-whet Owl in Allegany State Park, NY.
Other authors are Pat Coate, volunteer, and several young naturalists.
The blog "A Passion for Nature" by Jennifer Schlick, WinterWoman, has been added to the roll. Jennifer is a a teacher-naturalist living and working in Western New York. She shares a passion for hiking with me. Her usual haunt is the Finger Lakes Trail.
Today, I am adding Gail Birdtale's blog. Gail and husband Ferd live in North Carolina, and they like hiking and birdwatching. Gail takes great pictures of the wild visitors to her back yard, with occasional appearances from her cat.
This blog is now a member of the Adgitize and Entrecard Networks.
I also have contacted half of the charter inductees to offer them a graphic showing their membership and linking to this blog. If you haven't heard from me, and are in this group, email me at jhy @ t-one.net. It's tricky to do all this contacting!
Today I finished creating small banners that member bloggers can use to link to this site, and began notifying them.
This brings the number of blog posts to five, so I can now apply to have this blog added to Entrecard.
The primary purpose of this blog is to provide the feed to other related blogs. Included blogs have roughly 60% or more of their content devoted to enjoying the natural world. Whenever I have something personal to add, it will appear in a post below the feed.
