*Where are you from?
*Tell me a little about yourself?
I’m a mother of three grown children, grandmother to two and fur mama to Sampson and Delilah.
*What is your blog called?
My blog is called Heart Like a Dog.
*When did you start blogging?
I started blogging on a free wordpress account December 1, 2010. In August of 2012 I moved to self-hosted, at that time I changed the name of the blog to Heart Like a Dog.
*Why did you start blogging?
I am currently writing a book and was told if I had an existing online presence I had a better chance at publication. I’m still working on that book, but have found that I love the sense of community that comes from blogging.
*How often do you blog? Is it a set schedule or random posts?
I typically blog five times per week. Three of the posts are scheduled days, while the other two are flexible. Typically my schedule is Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday.
*What is your blog about?
My blog is about my two dogs Sampson and Delilah, the funny and frustrating things they do and our lives in general. I do try to cover some health related posts, but mostly try to focus on humor.
*Do you have any animals?
Yes, two dogs. Sampson who is a Golden Retriever/Labrador mix and Delilah who is a pure Chocolate lab.
*Fill In Your Social Media Contact Info:
*What do you hope to achieve with your blog in 2014?
I would like to gain more readers and develop a bigger following, maybe fine tune my niche and focus on that.
*Have you ever attended any Blog Conferences? If so what ones and how was it?:
So far I have attended two. The Pet Writer’s Conference and BlogPaws 2013. The conferences were good, just very whirlwind. Lots of information to process in a short amount of time.
*What do you get inspiration from?
I get my inspiration mostly from my dogs. They are so amazing and resilient. Nothing gets them down, my goal in life is to make my heart more like my dog’s.
*Any advice for someone wanting to start their own Animal Blog?
Develop your niche first and focus on that. When I started blogging I had no idea what I was doing or what my blog was even about. Know your audience and what you want to promote, then follow your dreams.
*What are some of your favorite pet blogs to read?
There are far too many to mention or single out one.
*Anything else you would like to add?
Just this, don’t compare yourself to other bloggers, each of us is different and unique and have our own value.
*Do I have permission to copy this to my blog? You sure do!
*Do I have permission to use the photos you provided me with? Yes ma’am.
