I follow a lot of pet bloggers. It’s a great community. And even though I’ve had dogs my entire life, I learn something new every day. Kimberly Nelson’s blog is one of those places. I find out about lots of cool pet products, see a bunch of adorable pet photos, and find out about great fund raising events to help animals in need. Here is my interview with Kimberly:
Where are you from? Fort McMurray, AB, Canada
Tell me a little about yourself? I grew up in a small town in British Columbia (Canada). I find myself with a very busy life, you can find me attending as many local events as possible, spending time at our camper, traveling, shopping or with my dog Rolo.
What is your blog called? Confessions of a Rescue Mom
When did you start blogging? and why? I launched my blog March 11, 2013 because I wanted to find another way to help out the local shelter and I know that social media is a great way to meet new people, spread stories and events.
How often do you blog? Is it a set schedule or random posts? I blog every weekday unless I am out of town (on vacation) and it is a set schedule with each day of the week having its own feature:
Adopt Me Monday, Tuesday Spotlight, Wagging Wednesday, Thursday Spotlight and Fundraise Friday.
What is your blog about? All things Animal & Adoption
Do you have any animals? I currently have a dog named Rolo who came from our local shelter (Fort McMurray, SPCA) He is approx. 10 year old and is a German shepherd x Husky.
What do you hope to achieve with your blog in 2014? I hope to hit 10,000 views on my 1 year blog anniversary (March 11th), I think that would be amazing. I also hope to have a ton of different companies and bloggers on my blog this year!
Have you ever attended any Blog Conferences?, If so what ones and how was it: I haven’t, I really wanted to go to the Blog Paws in May but that weekend I will be on my Honeymoon so that doesn’t work out. Maybe next year!
What do you get inspiration from? I would definitely say Rolo and every other shelter dog that I cross paths with.
What are some of your favorite pet blogs to read? I have just recently started to branch out and read other blogs but I definitely love to read the FiveSibes Blog which you can find at: http://www.fivesibes.blogspot.ca/
Anything else you would like to add? Be sure to check out my blog and facebook page there’s always lots of neat things on it.
