Is Your Pet Blog a Small Business? Weekend Survey

DiggRedditPrintShare

100_1406Is your blog a small business, a place to share pet info and stories, a little bit of both, or neither? With our 2,000 members, BlogPaws bloggers and microbloggers span the gamut.

With massive amounts of snow blanketing us here in the northeast, BlogPaws knows many of us are at our computers, smartphones, and tablet devices a bit longer this weekend, perhaps? So we toss the following 5 questions over to you. We'll be sharing the replies in a future newsletter to our members. Here we go:

1. How many blogs do you have at present?

2. Would you classify your blog as a small business, a place to share pet info and stories, a little bit of both, or neither?

3. How many times a week do you post?

4. If you could change one thing about your blog, what would it be?

5. What is the link(s) to your blog?

    1) I currently have seven blogs (I think) but I’m not active on all of them anymore.
    2) Right now it’s a place to share pet info and stories, but I’d like to make it more of a business where it actually makes money instead of costing money.
    3)I post daily on my main blog and and sporadically on two of the others.
    4)That’s my problem, I’m just not sure what to do with it, which direction I want to go.
    5) http://www.heartlikeadog. com is my main one, http://www.alongcamesampson.com is my secondary one. The others are not pet blogs.

  • http://lifeasalfie.wordpress.com Emily

    1. How many blogs do you have at present?
    I own 1 blog at present. I used to run another but It was going nowhere and I rarely had new ideas to post. This one however is the complete opposite!
    2. Would you classify your blog as a small business, a place to share pet info and stories, a little bit of both, or neither?
    As of yet I get no money. So I am not a money making business if I am one at all. I do share pet info and stories however. I also do reviews on products so I am that kind of blog.
    3. How many times a week do you post?
    I post around 7 – 4 times a week no less, no more.
    4. If you could change one thing about your blog, what would it be?
    The layout/design. Whatever I do I will never be happy with the design. I will never have the skills to design on my own so I would need someone who knew what they were doing
