Nature Blogs I Enjoy

I’m always happy to find good nature blogs. This is a collection of links to the ones I liked best. I love photography with evocative prose. Feel free to add the ones you love to the comment section below.

My own blog here at Wild Ozark is filled with nature photography, like the fungi below, art and my own musings along with posts about our homesteading life and the woodland plants.

I have artwork, too.

But my blogging on nature and my art is pretty much focused on the small area of Wild Ozark. And lately I’ve been more focused on my art than on photography or blogging. I love nature from all over though, so  I’m building a list of the other nature blogs out there that inspire and evoke in me a love of nature.

I hope they give you the same sense of how sacred our Earth and all the life on it is.

We have so many beautiful fungi out here. This is one of my favorite photos.

What Type of Blogs Do I Seek?

It’s easier to say what I don’t want.

What I’m NOT looking for:

  • Old and not updated for years
  • Too scholarly, though I’m definitely interested in in-depth articles with photos (just not necessarily abstracts, because I personally do read them, but most people won’t read them)
  • Too tedious to navigate or read (cluttered sites, pop-ups, advertising everywhere…)

Nature.com is a well-written and informative site,  but they’re too academic for my purpose with this list. Tumblr blogs are just too tedious to me, so I generally don’t list any of the ones I find hosted there.

What I do look for in nature blogs:

What I like most is compelling writing (whether in depth or simply phrases) accompanied by art or photography. I especially love recorded thoughts or phrases that really make me think deeply. Or blogs with just plain interesting things about the natural world. Oh, and I also want beautiful/inspiring photography and/or artwork.

I did eventually find some nature blogs that work for me, and many of you have suggested your own or others that you’ve loved. Thank you for that! If you don’t see the one you already know and love listed here,  link it in the comments and I’ll add it to the list if it satisfies my criteria.

If a website isn’t secure and using SSL, I won’t be able to list it. Each year I’m going to try and go through the list to remove broken links or dead blogs. But this isn’t always practical, so from time to time, I wipe the slate and start anew. 2021 is one of these times. Feel free to suggest I add yours back to the list if you’ve been removed. It was personal, just a matter of time shortage on my part.

    1. Hi there, thanks for submitting your link. When I get some time I’ll move an entry for you up in the list on the page. I’m looking forward to seeing your website 😁

    I love your blog and your fungi picture. I think you would like my post “Nourish Your Soul After a Rain.” I found so much fungi to photograph this August after weeks of rain. We live on 12 acres in the Piedmont of North Carolina that back onto more private forest land. So much to observe and write about. But I’m from Missouri and love the Ozarks too! Thanks so much for your work. I’m glad I found you! I’m at “Diary of a Mindful Nature Lover,” http://www.ninanaomimindfulsimpleliving.blogspot.com.

    1. Hi Tracy, your blog sounds wonderful. I’m heading over to visit in a few minutes and will add your link to my list! Thanks for dropping in and leaving your link 🙂

  2. What a great idea! My blog is oneforestfragment.com It’s about the life of a small urban forest – where I work to restore the native plant community, and improve habitat for the creatures that live there.

    1. I have not seen any impact from it here, but toward the eastern side of our Ozarks I’ve heard some say the deer are a problem. It’s possible that we have enough human predation to keep the deer population low enough here 🙂

  3. Hello Madison, I have a weekly blog based on the bestseller “The Hidden Life of Trees” Every week I create a new painting based on the next chapter of the book. Check out: shirleyfoxart.com/blog

    1. Love the name! But when I clicked to check out your website, it only says “coming soon”. Let me know when you get it up and running and I’ll visit again. Thanks for dropping by!

    1. Thank you! I hope you find a lot here on site, and visit the blogs I’ve gathered so far. If you find a great nature blog in your browsing around the internet, feel free to suggest them 🙂

    1. Oh thank you for sharing your site with me and the world, Kush! It’s gorgeous and I do love it. I’ll add yours to my list as soon as I get a chance today 🙂

    1. Your blog makes me jealous! So very beautiful and information packed. I’ll try to get your link posted in the list today. Thank you for submitting 🙂

    1. Yes I am, and thank you so much for the compliment, my goal is to add new content in the blog section every week, hope you will check back.

    1. Thanks Madison, I really appreciate this! I admire your work and passion! Thank you for your list and adding me. I created this site in hopes of inspiring others through nature. Our world has become so desensitized due to the highly demanding routine of living that we don’t necessarily have the opportunities or the understanding of what we are missing without nature in our life. I hope we can continue with the capacity to inspire as the world is as demanding on us advocates as well. It’s great to be in such good company! Thanks, Martin James Wood

    2. Hi Martin, thanks! Yes, I agree with your mission to inspire and reconnect people to nature 🙂 I’d love to spot you as a guest on my blog. Right now I’m behind on projects but would love to guest on yours one day. Email me at madison@wildozark.com and we’ll get something together for a guest post.

    1. Thank you, Ava 🙂 Living where I do makes it easy for a person to either be very passionate or very depressed, lol. It’s very rural and so mostly wild and I love it. Some people find it too quiet and too far removed from human activity.

  4. HI Madison – I take photos and write about nature (well, and cooking and other stuff) on my blog, http://www.banteringbibliocrat.com. I live in southern Appalachian near Asheville, but lived in the Ozarks for seven years, editing and publishing a 19th century Ozark memoir in the process (Life in the Leatherwoods, U. of Arkansas Press, 2000). Thanks for considering linking to my blog. – Gene

    1. I loved your blog – thanks for submitting the link! I’ll get that posted to the page shortly. Your memoir sounds interesting. I’ll have to see if I can find it 🙂

  5. Hi Madison.

    I’m not sure if you are still looking for Nature blog recommendations but I would like to throw my hat into the ring. My blog is NorthwoodsGuy.com. I created this blog with the hopes of bringing people closer to Nature through the works of Thoreau, Emerson, Abbey, etc, along with my own musings.

    Thanks Madison!

    1. Hi Aaron! I am always on the lookout, so thank you for leaving your comment. Will be taking a visit there shortly. I’ll also mention you in my August newsletter so others can drop in to say hello, too.

    2. Thanks Madison! I am going to be adding a blogroll section very soon and will make sure to add your site as well. Thanks again!

      Aaron

  6. Hi Madison,
