1st Blog, Hiking The Trail Blog on Bloglovin.com (http://www.bloglovin.com/viewer?blog=4148697&group=0&frame_type=b&frame=1&click=0&user=0). This blog is similar to mine in that its priority is hiking. The author goes over his/her list of hiking materials and packing list like I plan to do. His blog is more professional in the sense of it being longer and more intensive hikes. I would like to be able to take night trips with a tent and sleeping bag but school and my schedule prohibits that. Other than that my blog is focused around the fact that hikes are relatively short and local. I feel that having a region based blog could limit prospective viewers but it could also mean more committed viewers and a tighter, more active community. The viewers will hopefully be able to relate better to this blog and in turn be more active in it.

The second blog I came across was Hiking with fido (https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/10070841)
