Pet Bloggers R Us

  This is another Thoughtless Thursday Blog hop.  I am hopping with the hosts Eskie the Ruskie and Love is being owned by a Husky.  Today’s post is thoughtless because the great people at BlogPaws did the hard work for me.

 

I am lucky to be a member of BlogPaws Pet Blogger Influencer Group.  Each week the 300+ pet blogging members answer a number of survey questions.  Today I am going to share the first Influencer Infographic.
   As you can see, there was a variety of topics presented to us.  I found a few surprises, but it seems one thing is very clear…Pet Bloggers love their pets!
   Not surprisingly, 96% surveyed would borrow money or do without things to help care for their pet.  A majority of Pet Bloggers (82%) plan to monetize their blog.  It is always nice to be paid for doing what you love.
   It appears the holidays were good to our pets with 34% spending between $25 ~ $50 for Christmas.  Over half of us had pet gifts wrapped under the tree.  The influence of pet bloggers on purchase decisions is a whopping 41%.
   The amount of online shopping is across the board.  At least ¼ of the pet bloggers surveyed make almost half of their purchases online.  I wonder if this is because most pet shops are dog friendly.  It is one of the few places that I can take Bentley and Pierre.
Do we use “human” products on our pets?  Yes indeed.  I use all of the products listed except the human toothbrush.  Bentley has his own doggy toothbrush and toothpaste.  I also use John Paul Pet wipes since I have discovered them.
   Now, do you wonder when and why we blog about our pets?  According to the infographic, you should never run out of fresh blog posts.  The Pet Blogger Influence Group posts 1 to 5 times a week.  Over half of the Influencer group members’ blog in order to share information concerning pets to their readers.  Approximately the same amount plan to, or are already earning money from their site.  BlogPaws members like to showcase their work and help support shelters.  One of the important percentages is the 74% that consider their blog a resource for themselves and their readers to make future pet products purchases.  That’s a big influence!
   **BlogPaws Pet Blogger Influencer Survey provides these results and infographic from January 2014.



 
On a personal note, today is my 3-month pet blogiversary.  During those three months, I have gained so many new friends, learned so many things about blogging, pets, and Social Media.  My site has had almost 34,000 views and 87 posts.  I’m not sure if it’s because I am doing what I love or being a part of the BlogPaws Community, but I don’t remember not being a pet blogger.  It is a perfect fit for me and I thank each of you for helping me live my dream.
