Helping treat our dog's Natural Solutions For Active Dogs With Joint Pain #sponsored

I just love my little dogs. I think most people who read this blog have met my dogs, Puppy Mister and Daisy Baby, on here on occasion. I am also a member of many blog groups, but BlogPaws is one of my favorites. I love working with companies that actually care about pets and want to make the best toys, food and other products for them possible. So, to help give companies ideas of what we pet owners want for our furbabies, besides doing product reviews, I also answer questionnaires and surveys.

Pet Bloggers On Social Media

This blog is a lifestyle blog in that we cover a variety of topics. One of those is our pets. We like to talk about pet food, health and fun toys for them and give advice to others on how to care for their pets. So, that also makes us pet bloggers. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you wonder about the habits of Pet Bloggers, here is an infographic based on research conducted by BlogPaws based on information submitted on almost 500 surveys. Check this out and I will tell you how I may or may not differ.

Habits Of Pet Bloggers On Social Media

How Do I Stack Up Individually Vs. The Group?

As far as which social media networks are valuable, I agree, Google+ is the least valuable to me. On my entertainment blog, Eat Play Rock, sometimes an artist interview or something will do well over there, but that is about it. I think Pinterest is the most valuable social media network to me and Facebook and Instagram would be next.

I apply for campaigns all the time {and get quite a few across different networks} and I blog almost every day. I do follow brands on social media and I try hard to remember to follow every company that I work or that I use in day-to-day like that I think my readers might enjoy. And, yes, I am on social media a ton! Trust me. I am on some network all day long it seems. ๐Ÿ™‚

BlogPaws 2015 Conference

I plan on going to the BlogPaws 2015 Conference May 28-30 in Nashville, TN. I admit that I don’t know many bloggers, personally, so I am particularly excited to hopefully get to meet Kimberly from Saving More Than Me and Felissa from Two Little Cavaliers. Anyone else going that wants to meet up?

  1. Hey there! I’m a pet blogger too. I have to agree that Google is the least valuable as far as bringing traffic to my blog. Facebook is the best, bringing in about 75% of my visitors! I enjoyed reading your post. Sweet pets you have there. And, oh, you can never provide too many blankets. I’ll be seeing you around!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Nice meeting you! My pets definitely are sweet. And mischievous! I bet yours might be, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I bet BlogPaws is an awesome conference! I haven’t attended that one, but I am sure my cats would love me if I did! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Checking out BlogPaws. The conference in Nashville sounds like a great time.

  4. Amy Desrosiers says:

    LOL!!! My dog has her own crate with a bed and blankie inside. She loves to sleep there or against our cast iron heaters. She is part chihuahua so she LOVES to be very warm at all times.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Our chihuahua is definitely like that. He sleeps with us and crawls way down in the covers or sleeps right up against my back. They definitely love to be warm.

  5. Have a blast at the Blog Paws Conference in Nashville! Thanks for sharing the social media statistics.

  6. I am a dog lover and I love pet blogs. I read a few different ones and follow them on social media also.

  7. Debbie Denny says:

    Really neat info. I will be waiting to hear about your Blog Paws trip.

  8. Haha, this is so fun! I don’t share enough photos of my dog – I need to!

  9. I bet you will have so much fun at the Blog Paws Conference. Animal lovers plus bloggers sounds like a fun time.

  10. I just joined Blog Paws, so I wasn’t included in the survey. Pretty cool answers too!! I thought about putting it on my blog, but haven’t yet. We just adopted 2 puppies.

  11. Catherine S says:

    This sounds like a great blog conference. I know my sister always enjoys meeting other bloggers at events.

  12. What a funny, amusing but sadly probably true Infographic. I love pets, I don’t share mine often enough. Must do that more! Thanks for the giggle tonight.

  13. Haven’t been able to open my heart to adding a new furbaby to the family since my last one died, but when I read pet related posts it always makes me nostalgic. My lifestyle isn’t really conducive to pets right now, but hopefully will be soon. I had no idea there was a conference just for pet blogging, I guess I should have known that as there is one for just about niche now! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. BlowPaws? I’ve never heard of that one before, but how fun! Have a wonderful time!

  15. This is a very interesting info graphic. Now I am going to pay more attention to pet bloggers.

  16. Have fun at your pet conference! Sounds like lots of fun!

  17. i didn’t know pet blogging was a thing. I have 3 dogs and am in the “pet industry” business.

  18. Sherry Compton says:

    It’s his bed! That’s the way my little girl thinks. Get up, eat, go out, back to bed. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hadn’t heard of blogpaws but will have to check it out. Fun!

  19. I am in BlogPaws too, but haven’t posted much about it. Had no idea that the conference is in Nashville. That’s decently close to me!!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      You should definitely heck it out then. It might be one you would like to attend.

  20. Alison Gibb says:

    I think pet bloggers are awesome. It is a good way to learn about new medications, food..etc

  21. I’ve never really thought of myself as a pet blogger because I don’t only blog about pets but I guess I sort of am one. Those were interesting facts, thanks for sharing them with me.

  22. Hi Dawn,

    This is a fun and super-cute post! I am a HUGE animal lover. One cat now but planning on getting our first dog and another cat.
