Before I went to BlogPaws I was a little unsure of where I stood in the big wide world of blogging.
I was tired and drained and my future in blogging was questionable.
For those of you who blog you already know how time consuming it is. We work, we take of our pets, we take care of our families. We do chores. We write a blog and somewhere in between, some of us find time to sleep for a few hours.
For months now I have felt as though I don’t have the time I need to dedicate to this blog and keep it up and running in good quality.
Then I went to BlogPaws where I met an enormous amount of pet bloggers. I would love to name each and every blogger that I met at the conference, and believe me I’ve tried, but I just don’t want to leave anyone out-and that is bound to happen. I wandered around A LOT and talked to hundreds of people and it’s still a bit of a blur.
Every blogger that I met inspired me in some way. Some bloggers were unsure of their blogging future just like me, while others knew exactly what they wanted and where they were headed.
While I was at BlogPaws I made new friends, made great connections, learned about new products and blogging techniques and I came home overwhelmed and still uncertain of where this blog was going.
A little over a week later and now I’m certain that this blog will keep going, and hopefully going well.
I love blogging and I want to continue to try and grow and see where it takes me. There’s a future here in this blogging thing.
There’s no turning back now.
I have a desk calendar booked solid of post ideas, from experimenting with new foods for the dogs, to new products that I discovered at BlogPaws, some of which are products that I will be trying out at work-so time is needed for those, but it’s super exciting that I can utilize my blog and my work this way.
I’m working on several fun campaigns with brands and I’ll continue with the pet health posts that I have grown to love to write. I’ll have a follow up post coming up shortly on Leroy’s ears because those darn ear issues are a hot topic with readers and I have to share some tips I’ve learned over the last few months in dealing with his chronic infections.
And I had a panic attack thinking about all this the other day when I was at the grocery store buying kale to bake for the dogs.
No worries though, I came home. Unpacked the groceries and went for a nice long walk with the dogs and sorted everything out in my head.
I’m pretty sure we’re headed in the right direction but just in case, is there anything you would like to see more of on the blog? Anything you would like to see less of?
Don’t be shy, honesty is welcomed here and thank for all your support!
