1. Why do you like blogging for Dogsized?
Many dog owners are obsessed with their pets, and I am no different. Having adopted two Japanese Spitz puppies a few years ago, these two little rascals have grown to be more than just my best friends, but my family as well.
As such, when the opportunity to contribute to Dogsized showed up, I didn’t hesitate to jump at the chance to not only learn more about how I can take care of my own pets better, but also, share what I know with my fellow dog owners.
Plus, I enjoy writing for Dogsized! Most of the topics I’m assigned are interesting and fun to write, and I can say that having experience writing for several other blogs—this is not always the case.
Moreover, with each topic I’m given more room to include content I feel may be relevant and helpful to other dog owners.
Finally, the friendly work environment is awesome too. No pressure with deadlines and no constant micro-managing, either. It’s a very chill atmosphere, so I’m looking forward to remaining a contributor for a very long time.
2. How do you think dog lovers benefit from the content?
The content makes dog lovers aware of the different things you can do to help make your dog’s life easier. You learn about new products, dog trends, better ways to look after your pets, and also stay updated on developments that may even influence your next adoption.
For instance, the hybrid dog posts were very informative, as they should give more context to any new visitors thinking about adopting a dog for the first time.
In short, the content does well to help both new and veteran pet owners reading because the content being pushed is relevant, practical and applicable in providing better care for your pets.
3. Which Dogsized topic have you enjoyed blogging about the most?
In the span of just a few weeks I have written a number of blogs that have not only educated me personally, but also influenced my purchasing habits when it comes to my pets.
For instance, I had no idea that dog boots were a thing before writing the topic. And considering how hot it gets here on my side of the world, I could only imagine how uncomfortable my dogs have been going for walks in the day without some form of protection for their paws. Now, I got so curious that I made a quick purchase on Amazon for a few pairs for my dogs— I’m excited to see how they look once they are delivered.
I think the topics about dog products like the boots, cooling pads, umbrellas; those were very informative, because I didn’t even know those were a thing.
However, I think the most enjoyable topic I’ve written about so far was Small Hybrid Dogs For New Fur-Parents. It was interesting to write about and, at the same time, learn what hybrid dogs are, the different breeds of dogs out there and how their personalities tend to vary as a result. It was a fun and educational experience for me overall.
Also, I realized that when the focus was more on the dogs, and a bit less on the products, I found the words just kept pouring out of me. I wanted to write more about them!
4. What makes Dogsized unique among other blogs focused on dogs?
I think what makes Dogsized different is that it presents a unique sense of genuine concern and relatability compared to most other blogs. It doesn’t sound like something driven purely for monetary reasons, but more like a friendly place for dog lovers to come and learn more about their dogs and how to take better care of them.
It’s also very informal and quite personal too, compared to other blogs, which gives off a natural sense of dog appreciation. It also feels trustworthy, as you know whatever products may be recommended will be quality items that should do the job perfectly.
I think this balance between open familiarity and usefulness can help bolster and build a sense of community in the future that most other dog-focused websites tend to neglect building upon.
