How to be a successful wildlife blogger

For the last six months I’ve hosted monthly ‘Blog Clinics’ on the Wildlife Blogger Crowd Instagram page for those looking for advice related to on how to become a successful wildlife blogger. Questions have spanned blogging, social media and beyond, relating to the wildlife, nature and conservation sector.

Access to genuine 1-to-1 advice and guidance can often be hard to come by, with a paywall in front of it, or bunch of hoops to jump through. The Wildlife Blogger Crowd is about access for all, and doing our best to eliminate barriers, because — as conservationists— we’re all on the same mission; and helping one another to spread our messages far and wide is only going to help our overall cause.

Presented here is a round-up of questions and answers that followers and Wildlife Blogger Crowd members have asked, and my attempts to answer them helpfully and honestly, to assist others with creating successful wildlife and nature blogs.

I’m now taking a break from running the Wildlife Blogger Crowd monthly Blog Clinics, as our free Mentoring Scheme will take the position of giving one-to-one help and advice in becoming a successful blogger, or launching a successful career in conservation — which is why I’m sharing a round-up of these Q&As.
