Like I mentioned yesterday, I am on a bit of a mission to re-vamp the blog. Since my current foster, Maggie, has been with me close to a year now, I feel that I have kind of ran out of interesting foster related stories to tell. This is not to say I don’t still want to promote fostering, because believe me, I do! It’s just to say that in the interest of continuing to do as much good as possible with this space, I think I need to change it up a bit. And since I have an (almost) attorney
at my disposal wanting to help, I figured why not take full advantage and dive into some legal issues while continuing to promote the “bully” breeds I love and of course, fostering?
I was inspired to start blogging by Love & A Six-Foot Leash and frequently
stalk enjoy their blog. They do this adorable thing where they take questions from fellow bloggers and their dogs “respond”. Recently another blog that I love, Mr. and Mrs. & Nola Kisses, sent in a really great question: How do you get famous (i.e. more followers)? Being such a popular blog, this was a great question for them to answer.
I mentally checked off their suggestions: high quality photos (ok, no more iPhone pictures, duly noted!), post regularly (workin’ on it!), write from the heart (oh, I’ve got that one covered–see here for a prime example of writing a tough post), network (noted!), think big (I’ve already written some pretty controversial posts but this is the direction I’m really hoping to head), and finally, host fundraisers, contests, and giveaways…which leads me to today’s post!
It’s time to FUNdraise up in here!
As you may or may not know, I foster through Last Hope Rescue, which is an awesome local rescue that pulls dogs from high-kill shelters like Wakulla that I have frequently talked about, as well as many others. If I’m going to do a fundraiser, it is without a doubt, going to benefit them!
So here’s the deal: We are doing our own version of “Kibbles for Comments”! You may have seen this idea around
town the blogging world, and I love it, but I can’t just do the same thing as everyone else. Oh no! I am going to make you work for it too. Since I have the brilliant mind of Rich at my disposal eager to help, I want YOU to comment with any legal type suggestions (dog related of course!) for future posts. Together we will research and do future posts dedicated to the issues you raise! Think of things like, “There is a proposed bill in _____ city and I don’t understand it, can you explain it?” Feel free to get as creative and in-depth as you want. We welcome the challenge! And don’t worry, there will still be plenty of silly posts in the mix too.
For every “legal” suggestion we receive in a comment for the next week, we will donate 1lb. of dog food to Last Hope Rescue! Now go tell your friends, please!
