*Who is filling out this Interview?
Ann Staub

*Where are you from?
Austin, Texas

*Tell me a little about yourself?
I’m currently a Stay-at-home mom to two girls, age 2 and 10. I used to work as a Veterinary Technician, but since I no longer do that (for now) I work from home as a Professional Pet Blogger. Pets are my passion!

*What is your blog called?
Pawsitively Pets

*When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in October 2012.

*Why did you start blogging?
After quitting my Vet Tech job to stay at home and care for my youngest daughter, I became pretty bored. I needed something to do and I’ve always loved writing. Next thing I know, I was blogging about what I love – pets! It was perfect because it also allowed for more social interaction with people and pets, even if just over the internet.

*How often do you blog? Is it a set schedule or random posts?
I blog whenever I have something to blog about. Sometimes, I get in a zone where I post something everyday. Right now, I am post 3-5 times a week. This year, I have a couple of scheduled features on the blog.

*What is your blog about?
My blog is about pets. Unlike other pet blogs, I do not focus on one kind of pet. Much of the time, I write about my dog or pet rats but I share information about ALL types of pets.

*Do you have any animals?
Yes – I have an 11 year old Pit Bull named Shiner, two dumbo-eared fancy rats named Jack and Gus, and a few fish in an aquarium.

*What do you hope to achieve with your blog in 2015?
Mostly, I just want to continue to grow my blog as much as I can. I’d love to finally be able to meet some of the other pet bloggers I interact with so often online as well. And of course, I love the photography aspect of blogging and hope to continue to improve on that aspect of it.

*Have you ever attended any Blog Conferences?:
No, I have not sadly. It would be a dream come true if I could, but having children to care for makes it difficult.

*What do you get inspiration from?
I get inspiration from all kinds of things! My pets inspire me the most of course, but I am also inspired when I visit other pet blogs.

*Any advice for someone wanting to start their own Animal Blog?
I think that as a new pet blogger that’s just starting out, the best piece of advice I have is to visit other blogs and leave comments when you can! This is one of the easiest ways to connect and let people know you exist. Join a community (like BlogPaws), social media group, or forum where you can find other pet bloggers.

Don’t forget to be patient. Blogging takes time and building up a following doesn’t happen overnight. It’s hard work!

*What are some of your favorite pet blogs to read?
Well, I have so many favorites that I’m sure I’d leave someone out…
