Thanks for sharing, and be sure to let me and our other visitors know how you liked this feature, by leaving a comment.


Last week I announced some Spring cleanup here at Fido's Freebie Friday. Soon we'll be unveiling a new button that is perfect for any spot on your blog. I've had the tough talk with Tanner, and after showering him with treats and an extra long Fetch game he's decided it's okay to retire his old badge image. Expect to see something new and different!


If you're worried about having to replace your old button, set those worries aside. We'll be replacing it for you by changing out the image attached to the code. If you've entered the button with code this change will occur without any effort on your part. Those of you who used a linked image will need to replace the button yourself.


Last week I started a new feature to help bloggers getting started with product reviews. Product Review Pointers will appear each week in a short, actionable format. You can read last week's tip here. No long posts that take weeks to tackle. Now, let's get to this week's tip:


Pet Product Review Tip #2: Creating a Product Review Plan


 Check out some of your most trusted blogs to compare/contrast their reviews. Ask yourself what features you like and which are less appealing to you. Consider your ability to accomplish each of the tasks involved and create a plan or template for your basic product review. 


I'll be including a tip each week, working my way through the process of selecting, acquiring, preparing, writing, photographing and publishing a product review. Watch for these tips each week, right here at Fido's Freebie Friday.
