We're a little excited here at Smart Dog U. This blog – the one you're reading right now – is featured in a new book about blogs and blogging!
And not in a bad way! (We don't believe in the whole "any publicity is good publicity, even bad stuff." We prefer good publicity thankyouverymuch.)
The book, TypePad For Dummies, is a great resource if you'd like to start your own blog on TypePad. (TypePad hosts this blog.)
We're in the Ten Bloggers Using TypePad Well chapter. I'm as happy as a Labrador with a tennis ball!
In case you're wondering:
- I pay TypePad to host my blog (they're very reasonable)
- I don't get paid to mention them and
- I didn't get paid to be included in the book.
I write this blog so I can help dogs and their people. I'm spreading the word about dog-friendly training and this blog helps me do that. While I'm happy to be included in a book about blogging, my passion is with dogs and dog behavior.
So if you've been thinking about blogging – maybe about your own dog – my advice is: DO IT! It's a whole lot of fun and you'll make great friends along the way.
