While it's true that samples are a big perk of pet blog writing (and as Popoki demonstrates, free samples make great beds), running a successful blog means more than writing notes about cool products. There's quite a bit of work and networking involved. It's not something for the faint of heart.
So I was thrilled to find out about the 2016 Pet Blogger Challenge, hosted by GoPetFriendly.com. Every year, pet bloggers from all around the world are invited to share their stories, their successes and their hopes for the new year. We're given a set of questions, and we're all encouraged to answer honestly. For anyone hoping to pet blog, or for those hoping to make an existing blog better, this could be a cool resource. And it might help me to make my own blog a little better.
So here are my answers to the challenge questions.
1. What's your blog about, and how long have you been blogging?For those of you new to the site, this pet blog has been up and running for 5 years. I do a mix of dog and cat, as the mood strikes. And my focus is pretty wide-ranging, in terms of pet topics I discuss.
2. What is one thing you accomplished in 2015, blog-wise, that you're proud of?Boosted readership! I made some big gains this year, and I'm thrilled to see those numbers go up every month.
