Hello there,

My name’s Ralph. I’m 11 years-old, which makes me 65 in human years. I’ve been told that I’m an Australian Shepherd and Lab mix; all I know is I love herding the little people in my life but I’m also really laid back. My parents tell me I’m the best dog they’ve ever had in their family.  I’m not so sure they should be playing favorites but I’m okay with that.

I first met my parents at a Humane Society when I was 4 months old. I could tell that Mom really wanted a dog and even though Dad really loves dogs, he wasn’t completely sold on the idea of getting a dog right then. Well I turned my charm up to a 10 and when he squatted down to pet me, I gave him a big kiss on the cheek and that was that. They adopted me.

You might think that a dog writing about blogging seems strange, but I love blogging. There are many reasons, such as getting to share my thoughts with others, freedom to write when I want to, the extra income, but most importantly for me is the extra time that I get with my family.

My Dad has worked from home my whole life, so I’ve been able to keep him company while he has built many blogs.  I think I have learned a lot from being his assistant foot warmer.

I’m lucky that my Dad gets to work from home, but when I was younger my Mom used to have to go to work and sometimes she would have to go on trips out of town for work. I miss her when she’s gone for 5 seconds, so you could imagine how I felt when she was gone for a few days.

Well she didn’t like being away either, especially when they had a little boy. I was super excited when he was born to have another person to play with, but it turns out that little boys can’t throw tennis balls very well for the first couple years.  But I love him very much and I do what I can to help raise him and clean up after him– he’s a messy eater.

After he was born I noticed that Mom and Dad were working hard to try to earn extra money and they were working on their budget to try to save more. I guess it paid off because 2 years later they had a little girl and Mom was able to quit her job and be a full-time Mom.

Now you can see why I love blogging so much. Not only has blogging helped my Dad stay home with me my whole life but also now he earns enough money that Mom gets to stay home every day with me and my 2 favorite kids in the whole world.

We also get to travel together and I really like exploring new places. There are so many things to smell in this world.

Most dogs don’t worry too much about money, but I know how important it can be to people. I really like people, so I decided to start this blog so that I could help you find a way to make more money by blogging, and be able to live a happier life. I don’t know what a happier life looks like to you, but I’m a simple dog and just spending a lot of time with my family is what makes me happy and blogging has made that possible.
