A Note to Bloggers:

Blogging is fun and also requires work.  I like promoting others in this field, pointing out people who’ve got something to say, have some passion, and an interesting writing style. It’s not always the way out there. That’s the hard part–getting our blogs seen among the millions available.  That said, there’s a registration directory for women bloggers, Blogsbywomen, and of course Blog Catalog.  A newer and growing site in the blogging community is Petsblogs.com.

All the positions taken are the writers’ and do not extend to any other agency or association.

Guest Bloggers and Sponsored Post Policy

Writers with original content who understand the pet sector and SEO are welcome to send a query email and include links to work published elsewhere.  If you have not been published elsewhere, no response will be made.

I accept sponsored guest posts from businesses I would be happy to buy products from and that fit the profile of Dancing Dog Blog — read below for more.
