As I sit here writing this article, I’m in complete agreement with many of the comments I’ve seen regarding blog posts by dog owners. There seems to be a lot of complaints about blogging about dogs. There are a lot of people who would like to take it back and say that blogs shouldn’t exist at all. They think it’s unethical or perhaps too contrary to their own personal beliefs. However, I disagree. One could argue that posting a blog post about your dog is just as much about you as it is about your dog. It’s your story, your journey, your battle, your journey back to health or to recuperation, and of course your reward for your efforts.
You and your dog will always be connected. Whether you have a healthy dog or an unhealthy dog, your love and care for both will be evident in your thoughts, and you will never be at a loss for words when sharing your feelings with your pet. In fact, the more you blog, the more you will meet new people and experience life with them in a new way. Writing a blog is really not difficult to do and I must admit that I don’t find writing as difficult as I once did. Nowadays, there are hundreds of different forms of blogging which means you have access to a lot of different forums where you can share your own experiences, tips, and links with the rest of the world.
Not only that, but being a successful blog author also brings with it a wealth of marketing opportunities. If you blog about dogs and put your name on it, not only will people know about you and your own personal business, but they will also be hearing from you about a number of other topics and products that you are interested in. On top of that, you are exposed to new topics and products that you never would have thought about before. For example, the popular Fido Media was started by a mother of two German Shepherds that became the home of thousands of eBooks and programs that teach dog owners how to care for their own pets. In addition to those, Fido Media also includes a website that features several types of dog toys, and a fully functional online forum that allows owners to share their stories, make new friends, and generally talk about dog things.
Blogging about dogs, of course, isn’t new either. That’s why I think it is appropriate for those of us who enjoy the hobby of dog ownership to blog about our experience. If you are a dog owner who is trying to get the word out, it is wise to join a blog like these and give a personal voice to your plight. The more you do so, the more you’ll be able to connect with others and you will gain more support from others who are experiencing similar struggles as you. You’ll be able to share your own opinions and experiences as well as the experiences of others who are blogging about dogs. There are people who make a living off of blogging about dogs. In my opinion, these people should be supported, not criticized. Those of us who make a living from blogging about dogs are certainly not at the bottom of the food chain, but we are not the majority either. So if you’re thinking about starting an owner blog or site to discuss your adventures with your pet, then do so. If you want to be part of a large social networking community where your name will be known and admired, then start a blog, and enjoy the ride.
