This week I am celebrating 1 year since I started this blog. It began because I wanted to share my experience preparing a raw meat diet for my cat. I spent months searching the internet for information that was easy to follow and understand. I was discouraged many times and thought it was too complicated and too much to take on. I’m happy I continued my search and made it my goal to share and simplify my experience feeding raw. I also wanted a creative outlook to share my passion for providing cats with a happy and full-filled life.
So in celebration of my 1 year blog anniversary I wanted to share all of my blogging favorites and what has helped me to continue blogging throughout the year.
As a complete newbie to blogging I had to find experts to learn from.
James Stanford Youtube channel – A great place for WordPress beginners to go. Provides easy to follow tips and tutorials of using WordPress and especially plugins. This is where I learnt most about WordPress and plugins.
Dana Fox from I Can Build a Blog is another great resource for beginners, tutorials, how to, SEO tips etc. She is a web designer (among many other things) who also sells beautiful blog themes.
Blog Paws – Shortly after I started blogging I found Blog Paws and realized there were in fact other pet bloggers out there. A whole community of them in fact. It’s a great recourse for connecting pet bloggers world wide.
I have Cat A veteran cat and lifestyle blogger who makes cat blogging super chic.
Pretty Fluffly is focused on dogs but I am continually inspired by their style and content.
Bengal Cat Love Useful videos and resources about caring for Bengal Cats.
Keep the Tail Wagging Gold mine of resources for feeding dogs a raw meat diet.
Board Booster – is a huge time saver. This tool allows me to schedule a hundred pins in just 15 minutes a week. It’s not free but plans start at $5 a month which is what I use. Because of it Pinterest is now my largest source of traffic.
Epic Blog Editorial Planner – This is a 12 month editorial calendar which helps me organize ideas, passwords, projects, blog posts and planning. The dates are blank so you can start it at anytime. It’s been a huge help to keep my organized. For around $15 its a great value
