Hello all! It has been a long time since we have posted a blog and I thought we should address this and talk about what is in the works. At the end of December, we posted on social media that we were going to fill our blogs with history about national parks, bizarre animal relationships, and more. However, I felt this wasn’t the direction we really wanted to go and we were just trying to fill space. When we first started our blog, we had a board member who had a real skill of creating an impactful and thoughtful blog article. When she moved on to a fantastic new job and had to step down with volunteering with us, it left us not knowing exactly which direction to take the blog. So, nothing happened. Even when we were pumping out monthly articles, they were sporadic pieces that didn’t have a rhyme or reason to why we were talking about it besides it was related to conservation in some way. Around last summer is when we started reworking the idea of social media and our brand as a whole and blogs again came up. Still no direction.
Fast forward to January, and we have a new volunteer come onto the team who is stoked for research and constructing articles that make people stop and think. I am personally very excited to start releasing what he has been working on, but I wanted it to be distinguished from the rest of what we have done so far so we are introducing Season 2 of our blogs! One of the main pillars of Conservation Made Simple is education, and further, education that allows the reader to create their own stance on the issue. So, this new season will discuss large topics and attempt to stand unbiased while diving headfirst into both sides of the story to allow you to create your own opinion about it. Whether we are talking about Climate Change, Are Poachers Really Bad People?, or The Real Impact of the Middle Ground, we hope you are able to enjoy the articles and start conversations with friends and family! Our ultimate goal is to make conservation topics and issues simpler for you and we believe we can use our blog platform to do so. With this said, creating these deeper articles is a lot of time and effort and we are making sure we place quality over timeliness, so we will not have a strict schedule but will aim for a once a month article! Thank you all for the support on our other platforms and for standing by and supporting Conservation Made Simple as we continue to grow!!
