Pet Blogger Challenge 2018 — 18 Comments

  1. Oh those precious pets, they always make me happy and some of my favorite blogs are those where the pet is the main attraction. Hey, guys!

  2. I knew this was in January, but I didn’t realize it was like now! I will have to scramble I guess! I don’t see your blog as being all over the place at all. Photography is what I would say is the focus. Sometimes you throw in projects from Al, but that too is photo based and creativity. It is always interesting because you are moving around and your subjects change. Not sure what I would do differently.

    • We have a niche kind of, but we don’t go with the crowds and prefer to do our own thing. It makes us happy. Rescues for one thing is a wonderful thing, but not something we are interested in blogging about. Being yourself is what counts.

  3. Hello, being a dog lover I really enjoy seeing your pet photos. Roxy and Torrey are both cuties. Enjoy your day and weekend!

  4. I’m so glad I hopped over! I’m somewhat fortunate that my significant other is a professional photographer. Sometimes he’ll touch up, edit, and crop my photos or he’ll take the shots. Other times, though, I want or need the photo NOW, so learning more about how I can edit my own photos is pretty exciting! I can’t remember what program he uses, so I’ll need to find out. Looking forward to reading these Tuesday tutorials and seeing the photos you create for your two different challenges.

  5. I could say “Ditto!” To Emma’s comment, but I want you to know that I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog posts! Your photography is absolutely awesome; and I marvel at some of the “shots” you share with us! I would say don’t change a thing other than including the new weekly feature.

  6. I like not knowing what’s coming next! I think it keeps things more interesting. I love your variety of topics and of course your gorgeous photographs. The only thing I can think of that would interest me that you don’t write a lot about, is what life living on the road is like for both you and Al, and the dogs as well. I love seeing where your camper is parked, and would love to see more of the other things you do, and what some of your challenges are. Does that make sense? Just more of what every day life is like living the way you do (because you’re living my dream!).

    • I’ve actually had the blog post rolling around in my head for a while. I guess it’s time to get it out of my head, and onto the blog. Thanks!

  7. I like that your blog is an online diary first. That’s how it started for me and I wish I was better about continuing my blogging. Unfortunately there are some huge gaps between dogs I’ve raised. I’m hoping to get back on the wagon with my upcoming service dog puppy. Also, I love the idea of going into the behind the scenes making of your photos. I’ve taken a basic black and white photography and editing course, but I’m by no means an expert and would love to get tips on how to improve my photography. Pet photography, specifically would interest me. All the best to you in 2018!

  8. I’ve loved three things the most. 1) your fabulous photos of places that I’ve never been, 2) you amazing photos of wildlife, 3) reading about what it’s like to live a nomadic life like yours.

    I already love the “From clicking to creating” initiative. You’ve learned a lot over the past few years, and I love learning from you!

  9. Happy 2018!

    I really love what you said about your blog being ultimately for you. I feel that way, too. I love to inspire others and always enjoy positive feedback, but I also blog for myself.

    I am going to check out your new series Clicking To Creating – what a great idea! Your photography is amazing and your photos are each stories in themselves and almost don’t need explanation or many words. I look forward to following your travels and adventures in 2018.

  10. Your favorite post was also one of mine. I liked the way we got to see something of your life behind the photographs you take.

    Like Jan K, I am also interested in your life on the road. But I don’t think it always needs a whole blog post. Sometimes it’s just nice to hear where you are and why you land in the places you do.

  11. Oh I totes get the wanting to quit bit. But while I don’t get here as frequently as I like (I hope to change that this year), what I love are the photos of the animals and of the ‘lost’ west that you find. Like the old homestead with just one wall standing, or the abandoned town, etc. And of course the night sky, the sunrise/sunsets/plants. Well there, I guess I like all the photos!

    You have such a great eye for beauty, I wish I had just one fourth of that.

    I think you and I are probably at the same point with our blogs, I’m thinking mine will be more of a journal of our life together, and I think that’s okay. I say photograph what you want and what makes you happy. People know when content is genuine.

  12. I don’t know if you should take somebody else’s word for what you should be writing about. Write from your heart, whatever that might end up being.

  13. You take such stunning photos! I LOVE that you have started a new series teaching us how you create them step by step! Can’t wait to follow!
