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.
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.
