If you have an interest in boating, you may want to stop in and take a look a unique blog about Boating on Lake Winnebago, Fox River, and Wolf River Wisconsin, USA. The blog is written by Doug and Lisa who hail from Oshkosh, WI. These bloggers blog about their boating hobby and use the Lake Winnebago, Fox River, and Wolf River in the state of Wisconsin. They focus their blog on places to go in the area, things to do, safety and other boating topics. Their boat is named SeaRay Sundancer “Holiday” Port – Slip #2A. Take a look at any of their recent posts to get a true feel for their boating experiences: Tri-County Powerboat Alliance Brat Fry August 4, 2007; Only 5 of 300 washed their boat after lake Winnebago event; Tri-county Powerboat Alliance Annual Wolf River Cleanup; VHS Confirmed in Lake Winnebago; Questions and answers on Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia (VHS); Notice: Menasha Lock Closed as of May 12, 2007; and Menasha Lock to being opening for 2007 Boating Season May 11. As is immediately felt upon seeing this blog, bloggers Doug and Lisa really cater to the local crowds and provide them with the ins and outs of the boating life in Wisconsin.
Navigation on this site is very straightforward. Posts are left marginalized and there is a right sided navigation bar. In the navigation bar you will find a categories menu, and an archive menu. I really liked the archive menu. For the month of June the feature has been added that dates archived entries and provides a link to each post in the archives. There is a link to the profile listed as well here. Some features I would like to see in the right navigation bar would include more information in the profile page. For a blog as personal as this, the authors should put some additional information about themselves to give their blog a more personal voice. The categories feature however is very comprehensive and includes the categories Lake Winnebago information, Marine Safety, Local boating websites, Boating events, Marine technology, local boating destinations, lake Winnebago boating, Please help, Boating safely crossing big water on a small budget, and Wisconsin boating Wolf River.
I really enjoyed reading this blog and getting to know the niche a little more than I did. However I need to go with a 2.4 on this blog just because it is missing some vital information and not updated nearly enough. I would like to see more in the profile page, and I would like to see some more activity. The last post on this blog was in the middle of June and I think this being boating season would be an ideal time to keep this blog active. I also think some of the posts are a bit lengthy, and perhaps breaking them up over a few days would make the posts easier to read, and as well, add content for daily posting if the bloggers are having problems looking for topics. Overall however, the blog is a great blog for its niche, and very informative with relevant pictures and information. I think its readers, presumably fellow hobbyists, more than likely get a lot out of it.
