Online Pet Adoption – Looking After a Virtual Pet

Having a furry friend at home surely has its ups and downs. But did you know that there are these cute little critters called virtual pets that have become a craze in cyberspace these days? Online pet adoption sites allow you to select a pet to take care of. Virtual pets are one of the newest trends that never fail to fascinate both children and adults alike. They have become so popular with a lot of web users, investing time and emotions into their overall care and well-being.

You can select from a wide array of animals from dogs, cats, hamsters, pigs, monkeys, horses, snakes and many others. If you are looking for eccentric creatures to look after, there are also dragons, aliens and monsters available. The choices for a virtual pet to adopt are practically unlimited.

Jazzing up your personal sites

There are numerous sites which you can drop by and adopt a virtual pet. You can put them on your blogs to make them look more interesting. In fact, as much as most of these virtual pets come for free, they are also compatible to embed in most social networking sites of your choice.

Once you have registered with a virtual pet site, you can select the gender and the color of your furry friend. Then you get to give it a name as well. A code will be generated for you to copy and paste wherever you wish your pet to appear on your personal website. You get to see your virtual pet and tend to their needs, like feeding and playing with it, whenever you log in to your site.

Teaching kids how to care for pets

What better way to train your kids in caring for pets than letting them experience having one virtually? These virtual pets are replicas of animals; they seek the same interaction from their owners essentially just like the real thing. Your kids will develop their sense of responsibility while looking after the pet of their choice, while having fun at the same time.

Unlike real animals, virtual pets will enable your kids to discover the enjoyment of having a pet without nearly as much maintenance as their real-life counterparts. The kids will discover how to attend to their pets’ needs on their own, without their parents constantly reminding them to feed, bathe and walk their virtual furry pals. What will further motivate the kids to ensure the well-being of their virtual pets is the points they earn from it. The more points that they get, the more stuff they can purchase for their pets. They can buy them food, clothes, toys, houses and other items that will make the virtual pets happier.

Blog Your Next Book and Four Other Ways to Get the Most Out of Blogging

Most entrepreneurs and experts would like as much visibility for what they do as possible. There are a number of ways to do this with one of the best being blogging.
Blogging, by far, allows you the opportunity to position your perspective and point of view. Further, it allows you to build a great online following of people who are interested in what you write about.
Five reasons to blog:
1. Build awareness
2. Build a following
3. Position your expertise
4. Increase SEO
5. Drive traffic to an opt in page to build your subscriber list
Five ways to optimize your blogging efforts:
1. Blog a book
2. Raise awareness about causes you believe in
3. Test topics for information products
4. Build a following
5. Promote an event
Blog a book
Repurposing your blog posts into a book may likely be one of the easiest ways to write a book. Start by outlining the chapters of your book. From there, split each chapter up into subchapters. This allows you to write a little bit with each post while staying the course with the end result – a book.
Not only will you stay the course with writing your book, you can also build a strong readership primed for buying your book once it’s published.
Raise awareness
Is there a cause you believe in? Why not blog about it? Because our blogs are our personal platform, we can write about anything we want. Frustrated with the way a political campaign is going? Blog about it. Angered by animal abuse and lack of responsibility by some pet owners? Blog about it. Want to raise money to build water supplies in third world countries? Blog about it.
Information product development
As with writing a book, blogging is a great platform to test the waters with new product releases. Information products can be delivered as text, audio or video. You can blog about the general theme of your soon-to-be-released products to build interest and desire for the product.
You can also use your blog to pre-sell a product. What could be better than getting paid ahead of time to develop a product?
Build a following
Blogging is one of the best ways to build a following. Again, you must be consistent in order to realize the greatest result. You can drive traffic from your blog to a social media group.
I recently began growing a private group on Facebook where I invite people via a Kindle book and my blog to join. I simply make mention of the group, include the link and people who are interested ask to be invited.
Almost daily I have requests from people asking to join. The best part of using this strategy is people want to be a part of my community. It is a private group and they have to ask to be included.
Promote an event
Blogging about an event is one of the best ways to increase awareness and interest. When I host events, I always make sure to blog about them. With my recent Think Tank held in Vancouver, Washington, I blogged about topics specific to what I would be covering in the mastermind.
With the success of the last Think Tank, I have every reason to believe my next one will be equally successful… if I include blogging about it in the marketing mix.
A great example of a whole community of people blogging about an event is with BlogPaws.
BlogPaws is an annual event that caters to animal bloggers. The strong leadership of BlogPaws keeps the momentum going to not only have people blog about the event, but also register for the event.
As the largest animal blogger conference in the world, there is a lot of effort put into this annual event.
As one of the speakers at BlogPaws, it behooves me to blog about the event. With dozens of speakers, hundreds of animal loving participants, and industry specific sponsors, with everyone putting effort into blogging about the event, it takes on a life of its own.
Getting the most out of your efforts
In order to fully optimize your efforts, it’s essential to be consistent. Blogging once or twice a month will not get you anywhere near the traction as once or twice a week. To get the greatest results, daily blogging is optimal.
Sure, daily may seem overwhelming, but your results are directly proportionate to the frequency (and quality) you put into blogging.
Additionally, blogging is a great way to position your expertise, increase visibility and test the temperature of the market on topics you may be writing about, developing information products and promoting events.
As with anything, blogging on a consistent basis takes commitment. A great way to stay the course is to put accountability measures in place. Whether it be making a commitment to a coach, a group of mastermind buddies, or like I did recently, making a public commitment. The more vocal you are about what you plan to do, the better.
Staying the course
Again, one of the best ways to get the most out of your blogging efforts is with consistent effort. Make a commitment over the next 30 days to blog a minimum number of days. Recently, I challenged myself to blog Monday through Friday for at least one month. Although it is taking effort, it’s also giving me the opportunity to serve my community with timely information.
Up to the challenge? Why not make a public commitment by posting something to your community about how much you will blog over the next month?

Ten Tips for Vegan Travel in South America / Vegan Restaurants

For many vegans, travel can be something of a challenge. If you’re worried about vegan travel in South America, you’ll be surprised at how easy it can be if you are prepared and go to the right spots. Basically, it’s about doing your homework and learning how to keep up your vegan lifestyle while travelling. It may seem difficult at first, especially when in a foreign country, but you can master travelling as vegan in the same way you mastered being a vegan at home. Here are a few tips to point you in the right direction before your pack your bags and hit the road. Use these tips and you’ll find it’s not hard to maintain a vegan diet while travelling in South America. The more exciting things may be harder to come by but the healthy, whole food options are always available. If after reading these tips you have any doubts about vegan travel in South America, let us assure you it’s possible. It does take a little extra planning and preparation but it’s worth it, not just for you but for the animals.

1. Do Your Research

Get online and search for vegan restaurants and health food stores. One of the best places to start is Happy Cow (www.happycow.net); an online directory of restaurants and health food stores that have vegan and vegetarian options. You can search for any city or address (like your hostel or hotel) and it will return a list of vegan/vegan-friendly restaurants nearby. Happy cow (like other vegan restaurant lookup sites) also returns a list of health food stores that carry vegan foods or vegan products. Whenever you would like a vegan meal or snack for your hotel room, lengthy bus trip, or souvenirs to take home with you, a visit to one of these international health food stores is a nice convenience. You should also look online for local vegetarian or vegan associations, where restaurant and health food shop listings tend to be up to date. To find local associations, do a quick Google search for the city name and ‘vegan society’ or ‘vegan association.’ Don’t be scared away if the content isn’t in English, that’s what Google Translator is for. Between these online resources, you should be able to compile a list of places to find vegan food.

2. Connect with Other Vegans

To find possible places to eat you could ask local vegans for recommendations. They’ll know which bakeries have vegan treats and which cafes serve the best weekend brunch. Online resources can only get you so far. The best knowledge is local knowledge. To find local vegans, or get recommendations from vegans who have recently visited the city, start with a Google search. You can usually find them by Googling the city name and ‘vegan.’ With this approach, you’re likely to find a blog by a local vegan or reviews by vegan visitors. You can also connect with vegans on Twitter and Facebook, by searching for the city name and ‘vegan.’ There are also online and offline communities, like the Vegan Around the World Network and Vegan Meet up Groups, that help connect vegans in faraway places.

A really good place to search for vegans is Couch Surfing (www.couchsurfing.com), a website where people offer up their sofas, air mattresses, floors and spare rooms to travellers. It’s a free service, where no money is exchanged. You can filter your results by including ‘vegan’ in the keyword search. There is also a Couch Surfing group for vegan and vegetarian members. Some large and vegan-friendly cities have their own vegan and vegetarian groups. If you don’t like the idea of sleeping in a strangers house, you can always ask people from Couch Surfing to meet for a drink or meal. At the very least, ask a local vegan you met through Couch Surfing for recommendations on restaurants, supermarkets, and health food stores.

3. Carry Snacks

It’s very important to pack food when travelling as a vegan. At the very least, don’t leave home without some snacks for the airplane, bus, train or car ride. You never know when unexpected delays will leave you in a place where vegan options are scarce. Pack easy snacks like apples, bananas, nuts, seeds, homemade sandwiches, granola bars, carrot sticks, bread, pitas, nuts, crackers, peanut butter or hummus. If you’re travelling for more than a week or two, don’t try to pack your entire food supply, just plan to make the local supermarket your first stop. Carrying a small stash of food with you isn’t a recommendation, it’s a requirement for vegan travellers. Unless, of course, you don’t mind skipping a meal or eating something that you’re unsure about. At some point during your travels, you’re bound to find yourself in transit, lost or far away from any vegan restaurants.

4. Find a Kitchen

If you’re travelling to a destination that doesn’t have a lot of vegan restaurants, plan to stay in a hostel or hotel where you’ll have access to a kitchen. This way you can prepare your own meals and have full control over what you eat. Without access to a kitchen, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy vegan diet when travelling to some destinations. If you’re not worried about the weight of your luggage, you can also bring along some kitchen essentials like a good knife, cutting board, travel blender, bowls and utensils. A small Tupperware container and a fork/spoon go a long way, making it easy to take homemade food or leftovers on the road. If you plan to make a lot of your own food on the road while staying in hostels or couch surfing, and you like spices, it is a good idea to premix some dried herbs and spices and take them with you.

5. Pack a Vegan Passport

If your travels take you to a place where you don’t know how to speak the local language, the best thing you can do is learn a few key words before leaving home. If this isn’t possible, and you’re not staying long enough to take lessons once you arrive, the next best thing is to pack a copy of the Vegan Passport. In 73 different languages, this little booklet explains what it means to be a vegan, lists items you can eat, and recommends some simple dishes that can be made vegan. You can show this to people at restaurants to give them an idea of what you’re looking for.

6. Learn the Lingo

Your life will be easier if you can speak some Spanish or Portuguese to explain your eating requirements and check if a meal contains meat or dairy products. Without knowing the local words for things like chicken, milk, eggs, cheese or butter, it will be hard to determine whether or not a food item is suitable for vegans. You can look keywords up online, write down some vegan phrases or carry the Vegan Passport, a handy book that can be used to help communicate your dietary needs at restaurants and stores around the world. Don’t worry too much about the language barrier when you first start travelling as things seem to just fall into place. It won’t be too long before you can say you don’t eat meat or milk or cheese or butter in Spanish or Portuguese. If you have time you should take some language classes on arrival in South America.

7. Go Raw

Whenever you think you can’t find vegan options, go raw. Just get yourself to a grocery, local market, health food store, salad bar, or even a convenience store and find the raw items. You can easily survive on salad, fruit, and nuts for a few days. (And maybe you’ll even decide to go raw more often). As other travellers can testify, there is an abundance of vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and seeds in South America.

8. Tell People You’re Vegan

Make sure you book a vegan meal on your flight. Remind the flight attendants when you board. Tell your hosts that you’re vegan and remind them what that means. They may have suggestions for you. Mention that you’re vegan to the hotel concierge or check-in clerk. They can often recommend a restaurant or know someone else who can.

9. Make it Easy for Others

Don’t walk into a regular restaurant, cafe, bakery or supermarket and ask a staff member to point you in the direction of their vegan options. Don’t expect people to even know what vegan food is. Vegans will have a more difficult time than vegetarians and though some South Americans understand the concept of not eating meat and consider it to be a healthful lifestyle, those who don’t consume any animal products at all may meet with incomprehension. Make things easy for them by asking if they can customize a menu item that’s almost vegan. For example, ask for cheese to be removed from pizza, pasta or a sandwich. If you’re in a bakery, don’t ask if a loaf of bread is vegan, ask if it contains or has been glazed with milk, butter, eggs, lard or any other animal product. If you’re cooking with people who don’t have experience making vegan food, give them specific ideas, share recipes, or offer to prepare a dish for them. Often, people get confused about what is okay, and what’s not. They don’t want to offend you by accidentally adding something you can’t eat. Don’t be afraid to help and answer questions. In the end, hopefully everyone will forget about the missing animal ingredients and enjoy the dish as part of a healthy and tasty meal.

10. Make a List of Vegan Restaurants

Though the prospect of finding vegan food in South America can be daunting, the experience is definitely worth it. Make a list of all the vegan restaurants you found on Happy Cow, TripAdvisor (www.tripadvisor.com), or elsewhere, and pack it in your luggage. Below you’ll find some great South American vegan restaurants to start your list. If you find yourself in an omnivore restaurant, it’s important to be careful when ordering and vegan travellers should make every effort to be prepared. Making a set of vegan translation cards is a good idea if you have a low level of Spanish and/or Portuguese, or don’t have a vegan passport. Though finding food can be a struggle outside of vegan, vegan friendly-only restaurants, it isn’t impossible.

Creating a Home Business in Blogging

Bloggers can make a business out of blog marketing. How? A blogger would have to have multiple blogs that they manage. Making a job out of blogging involves a lot of hard work. Bloggers need to do research, write their posts, respond to blog comments, and do a lot of marketing. Doing all of these things for multiple blogs can certainly turn into home business.

Marketing a blog is all about attracting more readers to a blog. The more traffic driven to a blog usually means more money for the blogger. Bloggers have to spread the word about their blog. They also have to find ways to make money such as selling ad space or using affiliate links.

Learning all the ins and outs of blogging is very important for anyone interested in making blogging their job. Some of the basic things a blogger needs are writing skills, computer skills, creativity, dedication, and a lot of time. A lot of research will go into learning how to create blogs, make them stand out, how to promote them, how to successful manage multiple blogs, how to keep readers interested, how to gain new readers, how to make money from blogging, etc. Blogging may seem simple and it can be for somebody that just wants to write a personal blog for fun. However, to make a living off of blogging, requires a lot of blogging knowledge that can only be learned through extensive research.

Something else that a successful blogger must know is search engine optimization. Corporations, websites, small business, and blogs are all learning the importance of SEO. It’s all about getting a name out on the internet and the website ranked high in search engines. There are different ways to go about this such as using keywords and back links.

Before a blogger decides to turn their hobby into a career they need to decide what markets they are interested in and which markets are most likely to lead to blog success. Some markets are already so heavily covered that a new blog probably wouldn’t do well. For blogging to be a business, a blogger needs multiple blogs, so they should have a list of topics they would be dedicated to covering.

Each blog would be focused on one popular market. The different blogs could be able different topics, but every post on one blog needs to be related. For example, one blog could be about pets, another about finances, and another about fitness. The pet blog should only include posts about pets. A post about fashion wouldn’t make sense on a pet blog. Blogs should be made for one target audience.

A blogger may become so successful that their business is outgrowing them. When this happens they usually outsource a lot of their work. They get other people to write their blogs or do their marketing. Outsourcing is about hiring other people in order to make sure all tasks are completed.

A home blogging business is similar to other home businesses. They take a lot of hard work in order for them to be successful. Dedication, consistency, and patience are important for a blogger to have. Creating a successful blog business takes time, but it is very possible. Nowadays, it’s becoming a lot more common for people to make money online from blog marketing.

Good Pets for Kids – Infants Through Toddlers

When you’re planning to add a pet into your family, you must take your children into consideration and figure out what are some good pets for kids are. Kids love animals, but are better with certain kinds and breeds at different ages. Make sure you’re bringing home an animal that is appropriate for your child’s age by reading the tips below.

Infants

Of course babies cannot handle or take care of pets. If you already have a pet when your child is born or adopted one soon after, make sure to properly introduce them to each other. Make sure to supervise them and gradually increase the amount of time they spend together. This will get them used to each other and they will likely grow up to be the best of friends!

Toddlers

Adopting a pet into the family while your child is a toddler will prove to be a great learning experience for him/her. Because of toddlers’ curious personalities, they will make an effort to pull at an animal’s fur, limbs and ears in an attempt to make contact through touching. You will want to make sure beforehand that the animal is okay with this. Always keep an eye on your child when there are pet products around, including toys, food and water dishes, litter boxes and even aquariums.

3-5 Years

Guinea pigs are perfect for kids at this age because they are learning about contact and empathy. The little pets like to be held, rarely bite and will make cute noises when happy. You can teach your child how to be responsible by having them fill the water bottle and food dish. If you have bigger pets like cats or dogs, providing your child with a smaller pet will help them build up to having the responsibilities to take care of a bigger pet.

5-10 Years

Kids at this age are also better off with small pets, including gerbils and goldfish. Because of their inconsistent attention spans, you should supervise them while they interact with animals. They can learn how to be responsible as well as develop good hygiene habits.

10-13 Years

Pre-teens and early teens have a good capacity for responsibility and reliability. Most of them are ready to take care of pets like dogs, cats, and rabbits. They can handle more difficult tasks like walking, feeding, and cleaning up after the pets. Kids at this age can also participate in dog training classes, go along for veterinary visits, etc…which can be an excellent learning opportunity.

Children above 13 are typically very busy, but can probably handle low-maintenance pets like fish or birds if they are expected to care for the pet’s daily needs both physical and emotional. It is up to the entire family to determine what pet works best for their kids and if their child is responsible enough to handle a pet on his/her own.

If you’re thinking about getting a dog… here’s 10 dog breeds good with kids!

Pet Safety: Be Prepared With Pet First Aid Kit

More than likely, you’ve got a first aid kit in your home in case something happens to someone in your family. And, since all areas are susceptible to disasters, you hopefully may even have a disaster kit prepared if the need arises. At the very least, you have the makings of one in your medicine cabinet: band aids, gauze, hydrogen peroxide, etc. But what about for your pet? Do you have all the supplies that you need in case your pet has some kind of trauma or accident? If not, you’ve come to the right place as we are going to outline exactly what you need to put together for Fido & Fluffy’s First Aid Kit.

The Staples

Each pet is different, so there isn’t a “perfect” standard kit that will meet all the needs of your particular little companion. However, the following items will provide a good foundation for you to start your kit. Don’t forget to obtain two of everything to keep one at home and one in your vehicle for use when traveling with your pet.

– A container large enough to hold of all of these items. It should open and close easily but be secure and water-resistant if at all possible.

– A list of phone numbers including your regular vet, emergency vet, animal control, and animal poison control numbers. It’s best to have these pre-programmed in your cell phone as well.

– A muzzle is a good idea for pets that are very injured/afraid – even well-trained pets may bite in these situations, even if they never showed any kind of aggressive behavior in the past.

– Leash

– Extra towels, wash cloths and a blanket

– Ice and hot packs wrapped in a cloth can cool down skin after a burn or keep a pet warm if hypothermic

– Scissors to cut masses that are matted in fur or freeing her from entanglements.

– Tweezers to remove splinters, or other foreign materials from wounds.

– Tick remover tool

– Toenail trimmer

– QuikClot (or a similar product) to stop bleeding.

– Gauze for bandaging or to help stop bleeding.

– Syringe or large eye dropper to flush out wounds or administer fluids by mouth.

– Small bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide

– Antiseptic wash or wipes

– Ear wash

– Sterile eye wash

– Antibiotic ointment

– Syrup of ipecac to induce vomiting in the event of poisoning.

– Latex or plastic exam gloves in case the situation gets messy.

– Pet first aid book – These items will not be of any use to you if you don’t know how to properly use them. Read up and keep this in the kit for quick reference in the event of an emergency.

Additional Items

Depending on your pet, you may need to include more items to complete the kit. If your pet takes medication, be sure to include a few days of the prescription. Is your pet extremely active and takes frequent hikes or outdoor excursions? It’s probably a good idea to include something to create a splint (tongue depressor, 12-inch ruler, or thick magazine). Ask your veterinarian for help in customizing a kit that’s perfect for your dog.

Go the Extra Mile

Now that you’ve got your kit built, why not take it one step further and attend a pet first aid and CPR class? Pets obviously need different care and handling than their humans. Check with your veterinarian, community college, or local Red Cross about the availability of classes in your area. Your four-legged family member will definitely appreciate it. The Trips with Pets Blog has even more safety tips and information, including how to keep your pets safe during disasters. And for all of your pet travel needs, don’t forget to check out Trips with Pets.

What is important to remember when blogging is that you need to create original, informative, honest blog posts in order to build a good reputation. This will help increase the traffic your blog receives.

Until next time,
