Mutt Monday Gets Even Better!

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

Optimized MuttMonday BadgeGood Monday morning to ya! Tanner and Oliver and I had an idea yesterday. I've been pondering how to help my readers explore some of my oldies but goodies. You know, those posts from 3 years ago that have great information and tips. Suddenly Oliver and I both looked at each other as if it should have been apparent forever. Funny how these things happen!

After I spouted out the idea the boys seemed appropriately agreeable so here we go. As of today I'd like to invite pet bloggers to share their favorite or best posts here each week, along with a few of their current ones if they wish.

I was thinking about whether you'd like to have a theme each week. Care to offer your opinion on this idea? I'd love to hear your thoughts. If you're a blogger who will be linking up here, let me know if it will be helpful to share themes, or if you'd just like to wing it. I'm game for whatever you think will be best.

Now, for my readers, you get to weigh in here also. What do you think? Would you like to see a group of posts offered each Monday, always on a unique and similar theme? Perhaps you'd like to suggest some themes that appeal to you.

For today, I'd like to offer a suggested plan. Let's all link up our best post from this past week, and then add 2 older posts from the earliest months of each of our blogs. This will give our readers a hint at our roots.

The comment link is just itching for some action so please give it a workout. You and only you can make all these important decisions. Thanks for your input!

A matter of timing: In an effort to help bloggers find time to link up their posts, I'm opening Mutt Monday at 6 PM each Sunday evening and will leave it open through Wednesday evening. If you work on Monday, try to get your links in Sunday evening to allow all of our  readers to find you. Don't forget to add the code to your blog also. Good luck!

Great idea Carrie. I am not sure about the theme thing. As a blogger I think the people contributing have such varied backgrounds that it might be hard for each of us to find an archived posts that is in line with someone elses. However, as a reader I might prefer to know that each thumbnail I click on will be related to a particular topic instead of scattered all over. I guess I might suggest picking a very lose and general topic such as "rescue stories" or "pet health". I guess I am not much help :) For now I will just follow the rules and link up.

OK...maybe it is just me but I don't see the blog hop link?

I think having a theme is a great idea. Themes: holiday, fun dog activities, fun costumes, training tips, homemade treat recipes, favorite foods, favorite toys, best pet products, about our dogs, behavior issue tips, pets and travel, pets and family, rescue stories, dog heroes, dogs in the news, our favorite rescue organizations, etc.

Wow, Dawn....great list!

Sorry @Jessica........I left off the hop link. I think I'll extend this through Wednesday and add the link. Feel free to link up additional posts if you like.

Happy tails, Carrie

I like the idea of a theme. Theme's make everything fun.

We just recently started our pet blog about vitamins and supplements (blog.luckydogvitamin.com) but we have been reading yours for awhile and think it's an awesome idea!
