Thank you for your interest in Pet News and Views, the blog of Michele C. Hollow. That’s me. I am a full time freelance journalist and author specializing in animal welfare, pet news, and lifestyle journalism. You can find out more about me at my website by clicking here. I am the pets/wildlife columnist at Parade. You can read those posts here.
Pitches, Requests, Queries I receive many pitches, requests, ideas, and queries from readers, PR folks, pet bloggers, and others. If you have questions, please e-mail at Michele@petnewsandviews.com. I will try to answer them quickly. I must let you know that I love this blog, and while I spend a lot of time here, I do unplug every so often. I like spending time out in the field researching blog posts. So, it may take a day or two to return your e-mail. I don’t plug products. I do run sponsored posts, which mean that these posts are followed by “This is a sponsored post.” The same goes for links. If a link goes directly to a product or service, I note that this is a “paid post.” See “Advertising Sales.”
Guest Blogging I am not accepting guest posts at this time. If, however, you want to plug a product or a company that brings me to
Advertising Sales As you can see, I accept some advertising. I generally run ads only from pet-related companies. Most ads cost $100 per month. See the boxed ads on the left and right hand sides of this blog? If you commit to a six-month run, the price drops to $70 per month for six months for a total of $420. The best deal is the annual rate of $60 a month for a total of $720. Larger ads cost more. I look forward to hearing from you.
Link Ads Link ads embedded in posts must be pet-related. For instance, I wrote a story and mentioned purchasing pet supplies. The link directed readers to a pet supply store. I usually have two links per post, and the cost is $50 per link.
Payments can be sent to my PayPal account. Whenever, I accept payment for an ad, I must let my readers know that this is a paid or sponsored post. E-mail me: Michele@petnewsandviews.com
