As a puppy, teaching my new human how to enjoy life is my primary goal. It is also my biggest challenge due to the amount of time my human spends at their computer when, clearly, playing with me should come first. The excuse I keep hearing is; “Hang on, I just have to finish my blog!”
If you’re writing a blog, you’re competing for attention among a huge crowd of bloggers, some already well-established and with a loyal fan base. You not only have to write something interesting on your specific topic, you also have to make sure you post often enough so the readers you want to attract keep coming back. And writing a blog takes hours (unless you write a lot faster than my human). Writing a good blog takes even longer. As the beloved puppy of a blogger, I want to go on the “official” record as saying there are better uses for your time. Following are some of my reasons for using a blog writing service instead of writing the blog yourself.
Three reasons to check out a blog writing service:
- It is good for your body. You should be playing with your puppy, not with your computer. Multiple medical sites on my human’s computer state that physical exercise keeps you healthy and reduces the risk of dying prematurely. Regularly walking your puppy makes your heart stronger, lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and also keeps your carpets clean.
- It helps you make friends. Dogs can improve your social life, and maybe cats can too, although really I can’t make any promises about cats. Pets are good conversation starters and get you out to meet other humans during walks, puppy school, and in the waiting room at the vet. Pets can also relax you, lowering blood pressure and decreasing stress (not counting that little misunderstanding with your mail – bet you didn’t know I could reach the top of the counter.)
- It is good for your brain. Exercising your puppy (such as playing chase to get back that delicious shoe) also stimulates the formation of new brain cells and the connection between those cells. The areas of the brain stimulated by exercise are associated with memory and learning, so if you do have to write the occasional blog yourself, you will do it faster after we’ve had a nice walk and thrown the ball around.
Let’s see; spending time with your puppy is good for your body, helps you make friends, and improves your brain. You could probably also spend more time at work on other money-making activities if you didn’t have to write the blog yourself, but I’m not really in favor of any activities that keep you at work instead of home with me, so forget that. Just remember that there are blog writing services available so you don’t have to struggle with writers’ block, correct grammar and spelling, or search engine optimization. Your time is precious, so spend it where it counts!
Contact us if your small business blog is taking too much of your time. Your puppy will thank you.
I love this post… it’s funny but it still makes good points. That’s my puppy pictured, and yes, he is a mutt. Not all Blogmutt posts are funny like this, but if you have a business blog and you tell us that you want light-hearted posts, you’ll get posts just like this written about your business. So, it’s up to you: spend time with a dog, or spend time staring at an empty blog window. I say sign up for Blogmutt. Your dog will thank you for it. — Scott
