Lisa Taron loves dogs. How many of us can relate to that sentiment?
A repeat BlogPaws conference attendee and bundle of enthusiasm and knowledge, Taron is on the fast track to becoming a professional pet blogger. In an effort to continue providing BlogPaws’ community members with real life info and “those who have been there, done that, and continue to pursue their blogging dreams,” here’s an inside look from one “ins-paw-rational” lady, who is announcing a new venture here on BlogPaws. Read on:
Taron recently changed her blog name, a big step for a well-established dynamo in the pet blogging world. “I have changed my blog name from The Pet Book Lady to The Pet Blog Lady. I first started blogging in 2007 as a way to encourage people to create projects about their pets using my online printing and digital scrapbooking business http://www.MakeBooksOnline.com (Hence the name Pet Book Lady),” she shares. “What I didn't expect was to totally fall in love with blogging itself. What started off as a way to promote my book-making business, has grown into so much more. I still have my online printing business but my passion and focus has now fully turned to blogging. My blog focuses on the amazing bond between people and their pets, along with product reviews and features.”
Taron plans to make a decent living as a blogger because she loves doing it. She would do this regardless of the money and she hopes to speak at a blogging conference someday. Being able to blog full-time would be flexibility to travel and she says that really appeals to her. Where would she go?
“To pet blogging and pet product trade shows, but of course!” (we can relate, Lisa!)
Where does she go when she wants to learn and what resources does Lisa use? “The Blogpaws website and Blogpaws community offers volumes of excellent information on how to hone the art of blogging (and I do believe it is a form of art),” she muses. “ I also have two resource books I use; Professional Blogging for Dummies (love it!) and Start your Own Blogging Business by Entrepreneur Press. I still have so much to learn and am enjoying the challenge, as steep as it may be. “
