Our New Book!

Have you ever heard of Blog2Print?

We hadn't. Though, we wish we had heard of it earlier!

We saw an ad for it through Facebook one day, so we decided to check it out.

Basically, it is linked through Blogger, Wordpress, or TypePad accounts, and it takes all of your posts (or the ones that you choose), and turns them into a book!!  We've been wanting to do this for a while with our dog blog here, so mommee tested it out to see.  Wowwee, was she excited to have it arrive in the mail!


It is like a yearbook of Gus and Waldo!  The cover is just like a school yearbook--it is very sturdy and has a nice sheen on it so if mommee spills something on it (which she does sometimes), it won't get messed up.


You can choose the cover (hard or soft), the design of the cover, and the pictures you want on the front and back covers.  You can also choose to add your comments (though, with Blogger blogs, they only have the most recent 20 posts available with this option, so we would suggest not doing that).


They also just started a new feature called Snapshot, where it keeps your text and photos associated together as they appear on your blog!

Right now, Blog2Print is offering 15% off of their books!  Just enter the code newb2p at checkout!

Strange Searching

I love Google Analytics.  If you're not sure what it is, you should check out this post, where I detail what you can do with it.

Anyway, I was checking in with my report about this site.  I love seeing how many people are coming to see the adventures of Gus and Waldo.  I know it hasn't been as many lately because I've been too busy to go and see others.  To receive you must give, you know.  But one of my favorite parts of the report is where you can see what people are typing into Google when they find your site.  There are many funny (and disturbing?) things that people are searching for.  Here are my favorites:

1. "blogspot dog mom gus waldo"  -- This shows me that people know about the site, they just can't remember my long blog handle.

2. "a dog that looks like dug"  -- That's probably from this post

3. "contest for dogs tricks"  -- Ooh, what a fun contest we hosted!  We're planning something for Gus and Waldo's next birthdays, so stay tuned!

4. "dog end moms"  -- Umm....this is mildly disturbing.  This isn't Michael Vick's blog, people!

5. "dogs run free rainbow bridge".  -- *sniff* Chloe Amelia.

6. "good dogmom" -- aaw, thanks.

7. "son slobbers kissing mom videos"  -- Umm...this is highly disturbing.  *shudder*

8. "swirly fur on dog tail"  -- I love my swirly butt boy.

9. "the infurminator"  -- Is Ah-nuld visiting?

10.  игра тайкн три  --  Any ideas what that means??
