Snarky Rider’s First Blog Carousel
As you all know, I’ve been kind of lax with my weekend posting lately. I’ve (hopefully temporarily) lost my writing partner (have you seen her?! I’m going to post missing posters soon!) and have been going INSANE with all of this writing. Anywho, I came across a blog post a while back about blog carousels and it stuck with me. Not only do I not have to create original content (a huge personal benefit) but I get to increase the sense of community amongst horse bloggers (an even bigger benefit that benefits everyone!). So, without further adieu, I get you Snarky Rider’s first blog carousel!
Oh wait, for those of you not in the know, a blog carousel is where, instead of sharing new content created by yours truly, we share in the genius that is our fellow (horsey) bloggers.
First up is Helpful Horse Hints: They recently did a post on parrot mouth and reminded us to look all horses, gift or otherwise, in the mouth.
Next we have Adventures with Shyloh, a fellow ESMA nominee in the Best Blog category, the link is to a previous post that I think is a pretty good example of the awesome cuteness that you can expect from Shy 🙂
And then there’s the good people at Guiding Starbuck, a blog on a (former) beginner and the training of herself and her horse.
Be sure to stop in and check out 36 and Single – a blog on the single life with a side order of 3 horses and 2 dogs! I’ve linked to a recent post on feeding and supplements, touching on a subject that most, if not all, concerned horse owners have stressed about at one point or another!
To wrap up this weeks Blog Carousel, we have Horse Listening. She didn’t email us her link but she did feature one of our posts on her blog last year, which meant so so much to us! This most recent post of hers gives some good, and timely, tips for ramping up to show season.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the first blog carousel. I’d like to continue to do this once a week, or once a month, depending on the response. Blogging for the horse world is such a unique niche – it’s hard to write for specific demographics because we really are across the board, the only think linking us all, really, is the horses. I thought it’d be nice if we could encourage a sense of community and develop some relationships – maybe even some online friendships outside of horses (wait, is there such a thing?).
