Badge announcing the pet blogger Challenge January 20-26, 2019In my life, I cannot remember being so happy to see a year come to an end! 2018 was a difficult. Truthfully, I almost let the Pet Blogger Challenge quietly slide by this year, just to avoid wading back through the struggles of the past 12 months.

Why Look Back?

Sometimes our finest lessons are wrapped in adversity. And, reflecting might help us ward off a repeat performance! Plus, 2018 did bring some wonderful moments worth celebrating.

So, whether you’re feeling like me – ready to usher 2018 out with a kick in the pants – or celebrating a wonderful year of accomplishments, please join me for the 9th Annual Pet Blogger Challenge!


2019 Pet Blogger Challenge

For the past eight years, the pet blogging community has joined together virtually for this event. We reflect on the previous year’s accomplishments and share our victories. We also help each other through our challenges, offering ideas and advice to get the new year off on better footing.

All pet bloggers are invited to participate in this inspiring blog hop! We’ll celebrate 2018 and formulate our plans for the coming year. Mark your calendars and tell your friends … the Pet Blogger Challenge is coming January 20-26th!

Last year’s Challenge was fantastic, with 38 bloggers sharing ideas, building relationships, and supporting each other’s goals. No doubt this year’s event will be every bit as wonderful, so don’t miss it!
