Pet Blogger Challenge 2016 — 36 Comments

  1. Congratulations on re-branding the blog! The photography looks great. I actually signed up for a photography class this semester. :) I’m reading your harness review as we speak. As far as things I like to read on the blog, I’m always a fan of product reviews especially when they’re timely (we’re looking for a new harness). Good luck to your and the blog in 2016!

  2. Dearest Mary, Roxy and Torrey! I love that photo of the three of you looking up into the horizon of promise. That is such a great photo and it would be fun to see that photo edited in several styles! I also love what you shared about the photographer’s comment to you: TO FIND YOUR VOICE. How true, how absolutely true. This same concept is very important in POETRY as well. For the last several years that I’ve been following you, I can’t help but put photography and poetry in the same basket. To do both, you have to OBSERVE. To do both, you have to FOCUS and also edit like crazy to take out the unnecessary NOISE in the background. Different angles are important to see an object or space differently, and both artists need to unearth the forgotten, the hidden, the mundane, and elevate them to new shapes and values.

    No matter what the art, we need to express and make sense of what we experience. Have fun finding the magical in every day life dear Mary!

    • Anita I love that you are such a part of my blog now. You are like my greatest cheerleader. I also like that I was an inspiration for you to delve into photography more, because you are excellent at it!

      • Oh I love your blog Mary, and the adventures you take us on? How could I not want to hop on board! Thank you so much because a compliment on my photos from you is highly treasured. ENJOY YOUR DAY!

  3. your photos are breathtaking sometimes and I love it to see things with your eyes… there are so much special little things we often can’t see till they meet you and your cam. Thanks for great photos and the interesting stories you can tell with pictures :o)

  5. I’ve been blogging for over 5 years and I’m about to reach my thousandth post; I post on Seattle, Washington state, and the Pacific Northwest. I love to know a bit about what is going on and sharing that out to the world.

  6. I think you HAVE made great progress in your photography. I love hearing about your adventures and the unique places you find and visit but I also love your photos. You have such an eye for seeing beauty in things that other people would probably miss. I know that every time I visit this blog I will see something beautiful, whether it be a dog, wild life or scenery, whatever it is, it will be amazing.

  7. HI – I am new to your blog, but will definitely sign up as a follower. I love the idea of traveling (and making art) full time. Looking forward to following along on your adventures.

  8. Your photography is always inspiring and it drives me to work on doing a better job with my own photos. My favorite blogs are ones that I can learn something from and there’s always something of value here, whether it’s a good tip or an inspiring photo!

  9. I think that the best advice you gave was “be true to yourself”. I find that some blogs are trying to attract commercial interest and bigger audiences… and they end up boring me to tears because they no longer are true to themselves! I know that you are – and that’s a big part of why I like your blog.

  10. I get tired of all the ads and promotions too, I would rather talk about what we are doing. And I think people like that too, so thanks tons.

  11. Your photography takes my breath away, Mary, and it just keeps getting better and better! The way you rebranded your blog to be more true to yourself is absolutely one of the smartest things I’ve seen a pet blogger do. It takes a lot of courage to do something like that, and I think it’s be a huge success for you. And I LOVED your review of the Sleepypod harnesses – it’s so important to help people understand that it’s important to buckle up their pets to keep them safe.

    Thanks so much for participating in the Challenge again this year – the only thing better than reading about what you’re doing is parking next to you and hanging out in person!

  12. We have been following your blog pretty much since I started blogging and even with all of your changes we are still here. It’s because of your beautiful photos, the dogs and your creativity. We have seen your photography skills improve along the way and are continually amazed at them.

  14. Interesting that you broadened out your blog and changed the name for much the same reasons I did it and at about the same time too. I gave a big sigh when I saw Photoshop and Lightroom as your editing tools. I always used (free) PicMonkey but it has stopped working on Safari so I’m trying to justify the expense and effort of getting/learning those. Love your blog just as it is and your photography also.
