Week 40, 2020
NEWS! for first time in my life, I start to collaborate in writing articles for a more established blog. The name of the blog is: Out in the Nature and their URL is this one: https://www.outinthenature.com/
A brief story behind this milestone. I discovered Out in the Nature’s blog last year, when doing some research for umaze. We were preparing ourselves to visit the labyrinth in Nagu, and the team behind Out in the Nature, had some information about this location in their post: Troy Town rock maze in Nauvo archipelago.
After reading more of their blog, I thought to myself: maybe if I start collaborating with them it will allow me to share some of my discoveries, from my Finnish adventures outdoors. I have this good intention of sharing since long, as you can see in some of my posts as this one in paddling or this one in Koli. However, I confess, it is mainly a good intention. Many times I start to write, but “n” things happen and either I do not start or I leave a post in the middle. Only few adventures are able to pass the publication’s challenges threshold. Actually, my life, I could say is so similar to the following cartoon of developers….
I believe a collaboration with Out in the Nature might benefit us both. To me, it will help me to actually finalize articles and share things to an audience, and I will do quality content for the site. After some emails, we agree to give it a try. Then I start to write my first post for them.
Then, guess what? Yes, the post was al: most ready and my chaos hit my desk, leaving my article in hold. The only aspects missing were address, some tags, and to activate a plugin needed to activate an interactive story, I made with ubium’s MINE editor. Yes, there were small details, but of those that require time.
Then the collaboration started to bring fruits, as a colleague from Out in the Nature reach to me, and helping to fine tune the details that were missing. Then voilà the article is out for the public to enjoy. The title is: Örö – Military history and a fragiel ecosystem. You can fin d it in following this link: https://www.outinthenature.com/oro-military-history-and-a-fragile-ecosystem/ Feel free to visit the post and let your comment.
I am so happy.
In my agreement with Out on the Nature is that the interactive stories that I produced can be also share in other blogs. Hence, here is the story I did about Örö
I truly believe this collaboration will be positive for both parties. We will find synergies due to common interests. And most importantly I start to feel it will also allow us to build friendships. Now to move forward in this share journey!
This photo is our arrival to Örö. First marina of this new collaborative journey!
