When I first started pet blogging, I had no idea that it would become a side hustle for me. I began a blog about my dog Simba (aka @RawrSimba on Instagram) back in 2012 days after I brought him home. It simply started off as a hobby and the love I had for my pet. I had no clue that I could even make money from pet blogging until a company emailed me about writing a sponsored post. Ever since then, I’ve been pet blogging for love and money! It’s been great! I also became apart of a pet community online that I didn’t know existed (Hey, dog moms!) and have made many pet loving friends in the process.
