Learn More About My Writing Process

I would first like to thank my pal Emma from My GBGV Life for inviting me to the Writer Process Blog Tour. I got to meet Emma and her human a couple of months ago and I must tell she is as amazing and wonderful in person as she is on her blog. Both of us hail from the land of 10,000 lakes, which makes reading her blog even more neat. Emma also has her own book out entitled, "Tales of a French Scent Hound."

What am I working on?

Right now, the biggest thing I'm getting ready for is my 1st Blogiversary in September. I have been working with great companies to put together a paw-rific giveaway. Also, working on setting up my post for that week and to find the right attire for this big milestone.

I'm also working on some product reviews including, Nature's Recipe Dog Food and Treats and from PetzLife Bath-Eaze, a waterless shampoo and conditioner.

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by RAGOM (Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota), the company that rescued my mother, asking if they could use my 4th of July picture in their upcoming calendar. What an honor this is going to be. I have been working with them on all the legalistic and can't wait to share the finish product with all of you. 

Why do I write what I do?

This blog was created for my humans and me to have fun and share those adventures with others who enjoyed hearing about them. Since starting my blog almost a year ago I didn't realize how much was out there in the dog world. As I learn about new exciting products, organization, or stories that touch me, I enjoy sharing them with all of you, my friends. 

I know that not every dog is going to like the same dog food or one toy might not be good for every dog. But, I try to share what works for me, a big, fluffy goldendoodle.

But at the end of the day I am a small town dog, living in Southern Minnesota and looking for adventures around every corner.

How does my writing process work?

As I read this question it sounds like there should be a complicated answer, but just the opposite. I only write was touches or inspires me, which makes this process so much fun. There are two different ways I come up with my post: Topics then the Pictures or Pictures then the Topics

Topics then the Pictures:
When I come up with a topic the next thing I think about is the pictures that go with it. I never write a post without an image. I'm such a visual dog, so most of my post are written around my pictures that my mom takes. 

Pictures then the Topic:
I may be at the farm or playing in the backyard and mom takes a bunch, well more like a ton, of pictures. Once I look through them, I get different ideas for possible topics/post.

Then, when I sit down to write my post, I try to think how the readers would like to seen it. Again, keeping everything visual, eye catching, and most of all fun!

I would like to share with you the blogs I have invited to join this tour.

I have invited Ruckus the Eskie to join the tour. I am always is awe of how Ruckus works the camera. His photos are always so beautiful and breath taking. He will becoming up to his 1st Blogiversary this month and has taken the blogging world by storm.

I have also invited, Murphy's Law - Stanley Rules to join this tour as well. Murphy and Stanley where the first Goldendoodles I met, when I first started blogging. Their humans take them on amazing hiking trips. But, the one thing that really impresses me the most, their humans do their grooming. 

Again, thank you Emma for inviting me. Hope you all enjoyed getting to know my writing process. Please take sometime to check out Emma, Ruckus, and Murphy and Stanley's blogs!
