A Brief Blog Profile: Raise a Green Dog

by Thomas Hynes


Dogs are great. They're funny and nice to be around. But they're also pretty important. They help the sick, disabled and elderly. They work with police and with farmers. Research suggests they might even be responsible for humanity moving out of caves. Dogs aren't just cute. They're indispensable! Today, there are around 78 million dogs in the United States. And as you might imagine, that adds up to quite the carbon foot(paw?)print. Enter Raise a Green Dog and their mission "to bring valuable, green lifestyle information to dog lovers" who aim to spend time with their best friend without harming the environment.

It would be easy to make a joke here about keeping the environment safe by cleaning up after your dog's waste. Laugh all you want, but that can actually be composted. And you can read all about it on Raise a Green Dog. You can also read about how genetically modified foods can affect the lifespan of your dog. Not surprisingly, the right (or "green") lawn care product will shape your pet's well being. This is still a dog blog, however. And as such, you can also get instructions on how to make chicken jerky dog treats.

This site also offers suggestions on toys and other types of dog gear. And while these other accoutrements of dog ownership might not directly affect the dog's health, buying the right (or "green") option will certainly impact the health of the environment.

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.
