Welcome to our 1,000th Post
It’s true .. this is our 1,000th blog entry here at PetLvr.com – [The Blog] and you can verify it by clicking on this link … http://PetLvr.com/blog/?p=1000 .. although, I should warn you that it really may not be an accurate count. While this is the 1000th post created by my wordpress blog – it IS possible that I might have deleted a post or two during our travels (for instance if a duplicate was found). So, if this is really my 998th post or not .. I’ll leave it up to my groupies to check the ARCHIVES at the top menu and count the posts manually!
I thought that for this “milestone” post, I would point out a few things around [The Blog]. I’m sure you were wondering what it’s all about! So, here is HART’s Pictorial for you
In No Particular Order 😀
* GREETINGS – My Name Is HART
I am your host here, and have been the one doing most of the posting. I hope you find the information interesting. There’s more about my philosophy of this blog in the “ABOUT” page. While, yes, it is my website and I do most of the blogging, I feel that this blog is for the greater good – for ALL EARTHLINGS who loves animals – by having a community sense of blogging information. We have co-contributors of blog information, and I have been posting many articles from various sources and authors about many topics. There are DEFINATELY duplicate topics in here, because I believe that you shouldn’t have to rely on one rigid thinking that your pet will follow a simple set of written rules and directions by someone, who has never even seen your pet or know what you and your pet is all about. If you have many viewpoints, suggestions and opinions in front of you .. I think you are intelligent enough and love your pet enough to try and take that information and use it to the best of both you and your pets to make this world (this is the part you should bring out the kleenex box) .. make this world a better place just by having pets and making out lives richer being with out pets!
If you want to contribute stories about your pet and any pet related topic, we are always looking for co-contributors here at PetLvr.com … please refer to the “WANTED” top menu link.
* MAXXIE (right) and SOPHIE (left) ALSO OFFER THEIR GREETINGS!
Aren’t they cute? I’ve been trying to post pictures when I can on THEIR blog .. http://PapillonLvr.com/blog/ but as many as I have (about 50 in every possible pose each!) I probably should be posting more often if I could! I sometimes post their pictures in this blog, but not that often.
* AFFILIATED PRODUCTS AND BANNERS
Yes .. I do receive a commission if anybody ever signs up for these after clicking on the banner found in the sidebar of this blog. I don’t expect to receive anything ever, although I tried. Soon, I will be replacing it with something else. I should note, that I do make a small commission on the google Adsense ads and chitika mini emalls you see throughout the site. I don’t make much at all. I will say, that I hope that eventually it will help cover the costs of hosting my websites, and even afford a long overdue vacation my wife deserves to have come December 2006 … We’ll see, and I’m not quitting my day job just in case!
* PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR RSS FEED
RSS Feed – it’s all the rage! What does it mean for you? If you have a news feeder (I use the online http://Bloglines.com as my choice) all you have to do is click on the funny red RSS or FEED button on the right and add that URL to your favorite reader. If you use Bloglines too, all you have to do is click on the bloglines button on the left. If you use other methods, there are other choices below in the right sidebar under “Other Syndication”
Please add me our RSS feed !! When you do, the number in our Feedburner “ENTRY SUBSCRIBERS” (under the Blog Stuff section) will increase. C’mon! Boost HART’s Ego and sign up for our feed! Have all of our posts come to you automatically at your leisure!
* WE DO CATEGORIZE OUR POSTS HERE!
You may have notice that at the top of every post, it says.. “Filed under:” – this is our way of categorizing each post so if you are looking for similar posts, they are all sorted out together. In our case, because we have a lot of categories, I placed them all in a drop down menu, as seen above and in our sidebar. All you have to do is browse, select a topic, and you will jump directly to the pages that have only that related topic.
* OUR PETLVR SEARCH WORKS GREAT!
If you are looking for a particular topic, try our search field. Believe it or not, I do go into my stats and review what people are searching for, so if I see something being searched a lot, I will try to get that information and put it back into the blog! So, not only is this search field here to help you find the information you want, it also helps me find the information that you wanted, but couldn’t find.
* THESE ARE THE NAVIGATION LINKS
If we let 100% of the posts show up on our main page or in our search results, the side scrolling bar would be too tiny for you to grab and scroll the page! Naturally, we can only show a certain amount of posts – but the posts are still there! All you have to do is click on the NEXT PAGE to get the previous page of posts and PREVIOUS PAGE to go back to the new page of posts .. Ya – I know – sounds silly, eh? You see, you are going to NEXT PAGE as you dwelve deeper into the archives!
* PETLVR POLL RESULTS
Hmm… six months of polling, and only 115 responses … Just for clarity, I thought that the first option “I’m a PetLvr” .. doesn’t mean that you love HART or PETLVR.COM or like that .. I just meant it to mean that you love all animals, and are not particular to one type, like cats, dogs, birds, horses, etc. etc. Thanks to all of you who just love to click on things 🙂 I appreciate your participation!
* PRINT ANY ARTICLE
On every post, to make it easier for you to re-print just the text and forget all about the graphics and spacing issues, all you have to do is click on the above link at the top of each post. A new page will be displayed, and at the BOTTOM there is an easy link to just click – and it prints.
* OUR TOP MENU BAR ..
When I mentioned ‘Top Menu Button’s, I meant from the link on the top menu bar as displayed above. Lots of goodies there! Have you tried our FREE Greeting E-Cards? It’s a simple script I am using. What I did was place some standard pictures from our PetLvr Gallery, and added a few .mp3 and sounds .. If you wanted to send people a customized E-Card, I am willing to upload your picture and/or .mp3 just to accomodate.. how cool is that?
* OUR TOP MENU LOGO GRAPHIC
Some people didn’t know this, but it doesn’t matter on what page you are viewing .. if you click on the graphic, you will go to the MAIN / START / HOME page of the blog, to this root location http://PetLvr.com/blog/ .. I don’t understand why other sites do not offer this simple feature to make it easier to navigate back home. It’s almost as useful as the BACK and FORWARD buttons!
THANK-YOU EVERYBODY FOR VISITING PETLVR.COM … WE SHOULD DO THIS AGAIN .. ON OUR 2,000th POST!
And Finally …
* HART-EMPIRE NETWORK
