Ruff Talk Rewind


I love to talk about my dogs.  You know those parents that share multiple photos of their little ones at the water cooler, or always have  a ‘cute ‘ story about something their toddler did? I am that person about my dogs. I can tell a story anywhere, anytime about my dogs. To me, they are entertaining, humorous and engaging.


Ruff Talk  was established in January of 2013 when I set up a blog on Blogger. Six months later when I discovered WordPress,  I spent a Saturday night downloading the software while on the phone with my hosting provider.  After purchasing my domain name, I was up and running!  A little bare bones, but there it was, big as life,

In the months that followed I found I would get lost in design details and blog very little.  Or I would just chuck working on the technical side and write blog posts to add much needed content to my site. Page ideas, photo ops, all flooded my thoughts on a constant basis – almost 2 years later (14 in dog years!) they still do – Not a day goes by I don’t formulate either a  post in my head or entertain a design change to my blog – and I’m loving every minute of it. I’m still learning the organization of it all – and strive to improve on developing a more structured routine.

Creating a purpose for the Ruff Talk site, defining a mission statement and developing a site that is cohesive is an ongoing project – and I doubt I’ll ever be truly done.   I cannot draw a clear line on which I enjoy more – the writing or the web site designing.  For now, it’s a tie.

For everyone that has visited Ruff Talk, and offered support and encouragement – thank you. I appreciate each of you.  Since I still love talking about my dogs, I’m sure  Ruff Talk 4 Dogs has many ‘dog years’ ahead of it!

Sniff around while you’re here – check out our Ruff Talk Bio page and Maxie and Mia have their own pages too!

Share why you started your own blog!  I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Thanks for sharing your love of your dogs and your love of blog design! I blog because I write and because I want to encourage others. It’s about that simple. 🙂
