Tuesday Spotlight – Blogger Lauren Harbury with The Diary of a Dog Mom

*Who is filling out this Interview?
Lauren Harbury

*Where are you from?
I am from Charlotte, NC, but recently moved to the Portland, OR  to pursue a career .

*Tell me a little about yourself?
Growing up my dad used to lovingly tease me about my obsession with dogs, saying that I would one day open the North Carolina doggie zoo – and it may still happen. I love dogs of all shapes and sizes. I live here in Portland with my boyfriend, Will, and our two pups Snugs and Ruby. Aside from my four-legged love I have a developing love of tea, beer (so Portland), and am an avid reader of anything I can get my hands on.

*What is your blog called?
The Diary of A Dog Mom

*When did you start blogging? and why?
I actually started blogging last month, it’s something that I have always thought about doing, and have tried a few times – but the subject matter was never right. I am that person who is always talking about their dogs, what mischief they have caused, and the adorable moments that happen – why not share that?

*How often do you blog? Is it a set schedule or random posts?
I aim for 3 times a week, it usually depends on my work schedule, the amount of rain we are having, and if the pups have sparked my enthusiasm.

*What is your blog about?
Right now The Diary of A Dog Mom is about my life with my two amazing pups and Will. Our adventures, and sometimes misadventures of the four-legged kind.

*Do you have any animals?
See, here I am again already talking about them before we even get to the question. Yes. Two. Snugs, a beautiful intelligent retriever mix, and Ruby the world’s most loving mini pittie.

*What do you hope to achieve with your blog in 2014?
In 2014 I hope to get more into DIY dog projects, as well as sharing our developing life in Portland (which by the way was recently voted by Outside Magazine the #1 best city for dogs).

*Have you ever attended any Blog Conferences?, If so what ones and how was it:
I have not, but I was  a communications major in college, so I have had plenty of guidance on how to write a blog – I guess we will have to see how I live up to it!

*What do you get inspiration from?
Every day dog life! The trials and tribulations of being a mom to two dogs, just moving to a new city on the opposite side of the country from my family and support system, and starting my first “big girl” job. These days there is a lot happening for me – and I’m loving it.

*What are some of your favorite pet blogs to read?
Top Three: Obviously Confessions of A Rescue Mom, Momma’s Gone City, You did what with your Weiner

*Anything else you would like to add?
Please follow my blog! Too desperate? Just kidding, but actually pop on over and check it out, leave a comment, share it with friends or file it away into your return under no circumstances tab…. But I bet you’ll like it!
