I was thinking it would be nice to have a thread here that would list everyone's blog?

Do you have a blog? Link?

I need one, but don't have one as yet. I'd love to do it, but it's partly a time to do it issue.

No blog for me, I don't seem to have the time. I can't even keep their medical journal up to date here.

I also find the blog thing a bit fascinating. Sorta like, who really wants to read what I write? I think if I were the type that kept a journal, or was used to that type of outlet, it might be different.

I hope no one takes that the wrong way - I enjoy seeing and reading people's blogs, which is why I thought it would be great to have a thread where we can find everyone.

Here's one I did last night - myamom is going to be helping with the updating once we figure it out! Right now it's about a mom and her 10 pups, but will cover special needs dogs so they have a place to update and post pictures more easily than a website.

I read more blogs than I write. I write more as an outlet for myself than because I think anyone really cares to read it. smile

I have one blog to record my triathlon training and races at http://triathlontrainingblog.wordpress.com.

And I just started a blog for Tara at http://talesoftara.wordpress.com.

I went to a class for work a while ago and one of the things the instructor challenged us to do is to think about anything that we were supposed to do in our lives that we have been putting off. What came to mind was an idea that I had for a devotional. I like to write and my faith is very important to me. It is a way for me to talk about how my faith has helped me through struggled in my life and HOPEFULLY be a blessing to other people.

When I started getting more into training with Bison, there were a lot of incidents that struck me as spiritual analogies. I came up with the idea to use dog training as the basis for the devotional. After watching Julie and Julia, I decided to make it a blog. Besides, I am not a good enough writer to get published.

I started out with 9 posts the first month catching up with all the thoughts that had been running through my head, and now try to post at least one per month.

Link to my blog is in my signature.

Til 9/3 bloggers can "Write a Post, Help a Dog" and I thought the blog folks would maybe want to help out. We just added our link to this list: http://twolittlecavaliers.com/2011/08/write-a-post-help-a-dog-campaign-2011.html

I think this is a great post topic and would be a good post to have stickied so it doesn't start moving down and out of site. Thanks for thinking of it smile

Re: Blog, did someone say blog? - 09/18/11 03:06 AM

I've just added all the dog's blogs listed here to our site (which is also a blog):

http://www.rileysplace.org

You can see all the links in the lower right sidebar.

I also added JeanKBB's iMom logo to the bottom footer under "Worth Causes Helping Dogs in Need" section.

If anyone else would like their dog blog added you can PM me at any time. If I missed anyone's dog blog, please let me know or if I named your blog in such a way that you'd like it changed, please feel free to PM me with your correction.

I think it would be GREAT if everyone here who's got a dog blog would add everyone else's dog blogs in this thread to their websites so that site visitors can get exposure to other dog blogs. Maybe we can all get more site visitor input on our blogs this way. Referring to one another's sites is something I like to promote and share with my blog readers.

Since some of you have mentioned that you like to read blogs, I do have an RSS feed if anyone is interested you can get updates by email. Left sidebar under "Share Us."

I've also started a page for health concerns for dogs which I've added Lisa's links and the one on Addison's Disease. If you have any other ones you feel would be good for this page or I missed a health link here, again please PM me the link(s). This page is here:

http://www.rileysplace.org/pets-hints-hazards/health-concerns-for-dogs/

I see a number of people who don't have blogs -- if I might suggest that you TRY IT! It's a GREAT experience and can be oh so very therapeutic for YOU!

I wasn't sure if that was for the general public or a members only thing that's why I didn't use it. If it's ok, I will certainly add it.

Re: Blog, did someone say blog? - 01/08/12 12:48 PM

OK, I finally got a blog up and running. We'll see how this goes. It's something that I wanted to do back in APRIL when Medo came home. I started to get it together, then NOTHING.

I tink it's kind of silly. It's the only "theme" I could come up with that I could blog about a little of everything.

I started one in December of last year, mainly to flex my writing muscles as well as to inspire my passion for sharing and photo taking. My postings are a combination of professional (my bodywork profession) and personal (our dogs, travel and wildlife).

I do not actively promote it...but thought what the heck, I'll go ahead and share mine here on the forum, too!

Thanks, Lisa, so glad you liked it! smile

hugging ...re Max. And, thank you for sharing. I made the video for a friend and her Standard Poodle. She was also overcome with emotion, while watching Myrika looking at me, which really touched me. I adore my girl and feel extremely fortunate to be able to help her body deal with severely dysplastic hips.

I did read it and thought it was interesting.

When I first clicked on the site it looked to me like a very nice ad for an LED dog collar - hence I thought it was just an ad. Never realized till I went back to look at the site in more detail that the blog author was simply reviewing the product. It was actually another company that sold the product that the author had gotten a free sample for reviewing it which they stated in the review. Sounds like a good product if one wanted a lighted dog collar.

There were a couple of articles about dog collar products for sale which the author said they received free products for reviewing these collars. One collar was a very cool sounding one with LED lights to highlight the dog for safety and another very cool looking collar as well. Then there were some recipes listed for making types of dog treats.

Thanks for the update about posting links to our own persona blogs - I actually never realized that we were allowed to do that. A good idea and good to know that.

I will certainly keep an eye on this blog for dog training articles - never can learn too much about different ideas about that subject.
