Are you a Dog Mom (or Dad) who knits?
Are we getting more snow this weekend?
Those are just a few of the questions I'm pondering this morning. I'm not sure how we made it to Thursday already, but I also don't really care. A dear friend of mine used to refer to Thursday as "Little Friday," but these days Thursday is my Friday when it comes to the day job. And yes, that makes the Lapdogs very happy.
I'm wondering how many of you can relate to the "u mooovvvv dat from ur lapz so Iz can getz in" look?
Even if you don't knit, I'm sure you can relate. Penny's need to cuddle easily adapts to any pastime... just replace my yarn and needles with your book / tablet / magazine, bead working, needlepoint... maybe even one of those adult coloring books that's all the rage (I've got three that have yet to be cracked open).
Besides the fact that today is Thankful Thursday, and both knitting and cuddly dogs top my list every week, I am hoping to learn more about YOU, my readers, today.
I am participating in a blogger challenge along with many other dog lifestyle bloggers, and need your input with one of my first exercises.... pretty please!?
Our first challenge was to determine what our top posts were from the past year. Shockingly, 2 of my top 5 viewed posts in 2015 were several years old (both of which were reviews), but even more shocking were the top keywords and phrases that people used to find my blog.
This is where I could really use your feedback.
We were asked to determine the top 5 phrases we wanted to be known for, and quite frankly, I'm having a bit of a hard time deciding what those key search terms should be for Lapdog Creations.
I don't have a breed specific or health issue to blog about, as many other pet bloggers do (deaf dogs, Goldens, dogs with wheel chairs, groomers, etc.), and it seems "dog lifestyle blogger" is way too generic. So...
What do you like to read about?
Why do you visit Lapdog Creations?
What would you like to see me write more (or less!) about?
I have a few terms I'm playing with - rescued dogs, dogs and knitting, dog nutrition - and of course dog product reviews will continue to be a big part of my content. If we continue on with Penny's formal training, I can include that as well. But, I'd really like to know what you think of when you think of Lapdog Creations, and most importantly what you want to read more about. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciate!
Back to the knitting and Thankful Thursday portion of today's post...
I really can't complain about the need for cuddles. While "the exchange" (remove knitting, insert 10 month old Doberman puppy) happens from time to time, I'm fortunate that my favorite knitting time happens much more often...
And occasionally, I even manage to end up with the elusive "finished object." This was the end result from the "Mama mooovv dat so I canz getz in ur laaap" pic above...
PS - What do you think of the new look of Lapdog Creations? As part of the challenge, I adapted a "cleaner" look. I'm not completely sure what I think of it just yet...
