One of the amazing things about writing a blog is the connections it makes. I’m not talking about networking or writing to gain anything, I’m talking about the feedback and comments that come back from around the world.

As I said in a previous post, I haven’t been taking many photos recently or blogging much, but I have still been using my Birdsy camera in the garden and checking out other people’s social media and blogs.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a class from Upstate NY. They had been discussing nature activities that kids and adults can enjoy and had come across my blog. One of the children sent me a link to a website that he thought I might be interested so I’m going to share it with you.

Thank you Noah!

As his teacher explained to me, we are all experiencing difficult times at the moment, with many, including myself, at home learning online.

This was the message from that teacher “I want to show the increasingly large group of students that they can accomplish things if they aren’t afraid to come out of their shells and simply ask, especially while being in so much isolation these days!”

Over the few years I have been blogging I’ve had some brilliant letters and questions from young people which I’ve really enjoyed connecting with.

One person who does an amazing amount of work with nature blogging is Kate.

Kate has recently set up The Wildlife Blogger Crowd, a space for wildlife & nature bloggers to share posts, join discussions & support others.

There are some great wildlife bloggers out there.

    Totally agree about the power of connecting through blogs etc, sharing our passions to our niche audiences and making some wonderful contacts this way, its changed my life for the last decade…before which I was very hesitant to come out of my shell, perhaps especially at school and university. I really hope these isolating times can encourage the “quieter” more sensitive ones to come forward and make their voice heard, and also get their needs met, in these powerful ways, perhaps in a way that makes for a more level playing field than the more extrovert-oriented ways of the world used to make easy to achieve.
