I love this idea. My friend, Maida, from Pets in Condos, invited me to participate and I couldn't say no! Could you? Here's how it works - as a way for all of us to share and meet new people, we write about The Next Big Thing in our lives, and tag others to share their Next Big Thing. I bet a lot of great ideas come out of this!
My Next Big Thing by Yvonne DiVita
What is the working title of your Project?
My Pet Friends and Fellows
Where did the idea for this come from?
Well, as a BlogPaws Co-Founder, I know how important it is for pet people to connect. We pet parents want to help each other out, challenge each other, share pictures, video and stories, but we often don't know how ot connect. I want to make it a little easier. Not by adding to the blogroll but by creating a recommendations page on my blog.
What genre does your site fall under?
Umm... pets? Heeheee... and people? Mostly it's about how to meet more people who love pets like I do so we can all support each other.We're focused on quality education and sharing resources all pet parents need.
If it becomes a book and then a movie, what actors would you choose to play your characters?
Oh my! I'd choose Meryl Streep and Ellen, then Sofia Vargas and CeeLo. Meryl would bring a lot of attention (the right attention) of course. She'd be able to share why it's important to understand pets and their place in our lives. Ellen would bring humor. Sofia Vargas would bring the younger crowd and CeeLo would just bring some great music to dance to. :-)
Great stories, great places, great content or how-to be the best pet parent ever!
If it becomes a book will it be self published or handled by an agency?
Definitely self-published. I'm a publisher for Print On Demand. I know the value and the cost and the need. Self published is best.
How long will you be working on it?
Forever, I hope.
What other sites would you compare it to?
Oh, BlogPaws community maybe, or any of the many forums online. The difference is - I can share links and connectiosn to hundreds of valuable places I think my readers will really appreciate. And, I'd love to have readers send me their links, so I can add them to the list.
Who or what inspired you to start this website?
Maida, from Pets in Condos. And, Caroline Golon of Romeo the Cat, and Carol Bryant of Fidose of Reality and ... gee, all my pet friends who give so freely and who love being connected. These, the ones mentioned here, truly represent the best of the best - by offering themselves as a resource every week.
What else about the site might pique the reader's interest?
Pictures! And Video! I hope to share both - so we can really get to know each other.
Passing the Torch:
Calling on Carol, Caren and Caroline to join in! Both Fidose of Reality and Romeo the Cat and Cat Chat written by Caren Gittleman have great ideas on what's important to share - no doubt they have a neat Next Big Thing Idea that will rock the world on its axis! Go for it, gals!
