TGIW: Thank goodness it's the weekend, and time for a look back on the week that was, BlogPaws style. If you are a pet blogger or microblogger, here's a recap of some of the news we shared this week in the BlogPaws community, on our blog, and oh do we have a big news surprise for you. Read on…
By the Numbers
Pet bloggers can and do make a difference. How many of you feel that
way? Better yet, how many of you have a helluva hard time trying to
explain that to friends, co-workers, family, and folks who aren’t in the
pet blogging community? Here's the rest of the post dealing with this and
a real-life example of a success story. Give it a peek and then chime
in. Do you think numbers are important to pet bloggers?
Are You on Social Media Overload?
Does the following sound familiar? Your autoresponder is
talking to my autoresponder that then retweets my timed Facebook post? Though it seems a bit ridiculous, the time is now and the above
is happening somewhere at this very moment. How many of these processes are you automating and how many
are you actually engaging with IRL (in real time): Avoid Pet Blogger Overload
Being Responsible for Your Pet
Have your children been begging for a new puppy, kitten or other small
housepet? How can you tell if your children are ready for the
responsiblity of pet ownership? If you don't have children but are

for the responsibility? Robbi Hess breaks it down and dishes with us.
