A familiar outdoors voice returns!

One of the first people I got to know when I joined the blogosphere was Kristine Shreve, a leader in the Outdoor Bloggers Summit who wrote the Hunt Smart Think Safety blog for her company, Gun Safety Innovations.

I loved her GSI blog and was really bummed to learn earlier this summer that the blog was being discontinued because the GSI branch of her company was closing. This was the second loss of an outdoorswoman's blog voice this year, coming not long after Field & Stream whacked Kim Hiss's FS Huntress blog. Read more...
Well, today Kristine announced on the OBS blog that she's back with an outdoors blog of her own, the Tenderfoot Diaries. I'm really excited to see what she has to offer, particularly as this is the first blog she's writing just for herself, not as a representative of a company or all outdoors bloggers.

What really promises to make it interesting is that Kristine is, as the name of her blog suggests, a new outdoorswoman, someone who entered this arena because of the company she worked for. And as you can guess, being a new outdoorswoman myself (coming up on three years now), I really like seeing that perspective out there.

I couldn't be happier to have her voice back with us, and I hope you'll stop by her blog, congratulate her on her new venture and add her to your regular reading list.

Holly, you rock! Thanks so much for helping spread the word about the new blog. I'm really excited about it, and eager to see what it will become.

Thanks for your support and encouragement. I do appreciate it.

I'm looking forward to what Kristine has to say on her new blog for two reasons: 1. Because she is new to the outdoor world, I'm really curious to see where her journey takes her. 2. I'm very interested to see what she has to say, and what her opinions are on certain topics, since she doesn't have to worry about a company's or an organization's image anymore.

It should be fun. I can't wait.
