|Here is the thing about blogging. It is for YOU first and foremost. If you try and morph it into something everyone else wants and cater to the other people it then becomes a website/business and to me at least, isn't as fun.
So, you need to choose your focus. It is going to be a family friendly site full of information and cute stories about your dogs? Or is it going to be a tongue in cheek sarcastic essay about the woes of life that might not be so family friendly? Is it going to be all dog, all the time, or is your personal life going to be included too?
I actually read your neutering one sometime this week. I, for the life of me, can't remember how I found your blog though. For me personally, I don't like long posts written from the animals perspective. In general, I find it a bit tedious. But guess what? For every person like me, there is someone out there loving blogs from the pets perspective-and writing them too. So you see how you can't write to please everyone? Write in a way that is authentic to yourself and people will find you.
I know some folks might find my blog a bit boring. It is super family friendly, with lots of pictures. But I like just writing about what I am doing with the girls or what they are doing. No advice or articles about puppy raising or how to choose a good food. But, that isn't what I wanted my focus to be about.
