New Direction-ish

I don't know whether you all have noticed, but my blog has been working to find a  focus since we all started chatting with you way back last October. First I'd write about the silly things that happened on our walks (remember that cell phone dropping into the still steaming poop?), then I'd write about some serious issue that I read in The New York Times, like the trend to surgically de-bark dogs just to make life a little quieter for humans. Well, I'm still going to write about those things, how could I not?!

But since learning about and participating in the BlogPaws conference, I really want my blog to focus mainly on 2 things:
__ Promoting adoption and shelter/ rescue efforts for human companion animals (yes, cats too... remember, I live with one), not just in the U.S., but all over our beautiful planet.  Hey, maybe I'll get a passport (that I can eat)!
__ Promoting select products and services that I (in consultation with my Parental Unit) think you'll be interested in and benefit from.
 See what Parental Unit and I learned at the conference about product reviews here: www.blogpaws.com/2010/04/product-reviews-a-right-way-and-a-wrong-way.html#more

**If we do any promotions of products or services, there will always be some free give-a-ways of those products or services, or at least some hefty discounts, through fun contests, (and who knows what else!) -offered to my faithful Followers!**

So my Parental Unit and I are asking for your support and advice as we embark on these new missions.
What do you have to say? Any products or services that you'd like to hear about? Any specific pet shelters/rescues, or other heroic efforts that you think are worthy or will benefit from some kind of attention?
Please let me know! Whadaya say we work together on this?

Awesome. There are SO many breed specific rescues out there, it would be neat to feature different "breeds" from time to time and talk about why their people are so passionate about saving that breed. Look forward to reading more soon.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Bocci!
I live in a place where there are not Rescue Organizations or Shelters... and no pet stores either!
But I'd love to read your posts about those topics!
Kisses and hugs

I think that is a great idea. I think focusing on small shelters and individual stories would be really interesting. Sometimes we don't get the full focus of what a shelter is doing if they are too big. When you can profile an individual dog and perhaps follow them through the whole adoption process, it can be inspiring.

Otherwise, I would write about what you are interested and passionate about. No sense in blogging if you can't have some fun.

Bocci said...

Hi A+A,
You two are so darn funny-we love ya! Glad you liked the article-wouldn't it be cool to be on his show?!
I'll look up those Oregon cookies for sure...and here's to more poop stories - you can't make that stuff up!
Glad you stopped by :-)
Your buddy,

Bocci said...

Hi Lorenza,
None at all? You can always order online! but I'm glad to hear you'll keep reading -it will still be a mix of things!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
As always, your buddy,

Bocci said...

Hi Megan,
I totally agree-that's why both Parental Unit and I are doing this-we love it!
And that is a great idea-to follow one pet from rescue through adoption and maybe even beyond. I'm printing out all the neat ideas I'm getting. Thanks!
Hope you keep stoppin' by!
