Feeling Unnoticed

Thank You!

I have blogged about pets and rehabilitation for over a year. Each week I would send out a blog post about something to do with training, rehab, physical attributes and just life in general but I would only see a couple of people who would pay attention; this was disheartening. I felt like — why bother.

I have not blogged for a few weeks and even left the blog with a continuation that needed to be completed but once again, I did not hear anything so it felt like it didn’t matter. I started trying to put more on facebook — more pictures, more video and even though my blogs were also on facebook they did not generate much talk.

I recently asked a friend who works on facebook for another business about how they do things and generate so much attention with their blog — she laughed and said very few people actually pay attention to the blog but they keep on plugging for the one or two who need it. I expressed how discouraged I was and that no one read my blog — self pity, I know — imagine my surprise when a couple of people at the table said they always read it.

It turns out that I was not accounting for where they read it and my statistics weren’t being generated correctly. Now that is not to say that a “ton” of people read the blog but at least I know a few who are truly interested so I guess I will get back to the grindstone.

Thank you for making me work more for the business and for supporting me.

    Hi Dr. Kennedy, just want to say 2 things: 1) that you shouldn’t give up but instead hop on over to Blog Paws.com, a fantastic, amazing resource where we pet bloggers are learning all about how to grow our blog and social media presence, and 2), I’m super impressed with your practice and would love to have you as our special guest at Tripawds.com, the world’s largest resource for animal amputees. I’m going to download your e-book and feature it soon so I’ll definitely be in touch. Keep up the great work!

  • Dr. Kennedy,
    I have not had a chance to read all of your blogs but I will. I left you a message asking where you are located in Simpsonville. Your practice is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. I believe in natural therapy for my pets as well as my family.
    I have two German Shepherds. The oldest is Nikita and she was 8 on the 23rd of this month. She weighs about 96. The other is Bruno yes a male and he is 3. Bruno is huge. His shoulders I think are 29″ and he towers over Nikita. He weighs about 132. I am writing about Bruno. When he finished up his Canine Good Citizens Award at about 8 months something happened to him. He became more than painfully shy (afraid). I had him to a dear friend and trainer of Shepherds and she worked with him for weeks. He is not aggressive and would rather wet the floor than bite. That was almost 2 years ago now. So I know he is safe-shy. Oh, I have had him since 7 weeks so he was (never abused.)
    We found out this past winter that he has severe hip dysplasia. He is very vocal and I knew that the way he was crying that he hurt. So I am dealing with this too. He doesn’t seem to hurt in the warmer weather.
    I am an empath or sensitive person. Please don’t think me a nut. I don’t see things or hear things. I pick up on emotions of others. Sometimes good sometimes bad for me. The reason I am telling you this is to ask you if you know of any massage or words I could say to him to calm him down. Your add mentions pulsed signal therapy which I would like to know more about
    Thanking you in advance.
