A Brief Blog Profile: Pet News and Views

by Thomas Hynes


Pet News and Views covers the world of animal welfare, pet care, wildlife stories, and anything else that might be of interest to those who work with and love animals. The site also covers books, events, contests, and pet travel. The blog also lists jobs for people who want to work with animals. On a more granular level, the site also covers birds, cats, dogs, horses, fish and pigs. Or anyway, those are the animals pictured on the banner at the top of the page.

In other words, they cover a lot of ground on Pet News and Views. You can read about the benefits of running with dogs on one post. And on the next, you can learn how Peter Dinklage (of Game of Thrones) supports humane farm practices. This site also provides information on why it's best to get pets spayed and neutered. I really enjoy this post on things to consider before buying a puppy. That resonates with me. We all want puppies. And while I don't want to sound like your parents here, there is a lot of responsibility that comes with that. Or, as this post suggests, there are some things to consider. For instance, are you ready to teach your dog to surf like the one in this post

As you can see, the site clearly has a good sense of humor. This post on the insane products people buy for their pets is further proof of that. But, at its heart, this site is about the love of animals, the impact they make in our lives, and the best information on how these fulfilling relationships can best proceed.

Totally agree. Even for someone currently pet-less, Michele Hollow's columns are great reading.

Any content creator -- whether you're a journalist, freelancer or blogger -- can set up a customized profile to receive releases based on preferences. You also have access to hi-res photos, media-only content such as media advisories and embargoed releases, and experts via ProfNet.

ProfNet Connect

ProfNet Connect is a free, interactive online community where PR professionals, experts, and media professionals can network and engage with one another. Via profiles, forums and blogs, subject-matter experts can position themselves as the go-to source for content creators and journalists. In turn, content creators can search the site by keyword to find the experts they need. The site also features enhanced profile capabilities, allowing users to easily add multimedia components -- photos, videos, white papers and more -- to their profiles.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
