Creating this blog has been one of the best uni assessments ever! I loved that we were able to blog about anything and everything. My chosen topic of animal rights was really fun and also kind of easy as I already knew a lot about it and had plenty of ideas.
I think the content of my blog was interesting and appealing to a lot of people including other students, although it was quite simple the message was clearly portrayed. I also noticed a few things that i posted got reposted and commented on which was pretty cool. I found a lot of other blogs that were blogging about really similar things to me which made it really easy to find good content to reblog. I noticed a lot of people that I reblogged posts from started following me and interacting with me and my blog.
Since I started my google analytics page I had a whole 46 page views :). It was quite interesting to observe over the semester how many and how often other bloggers visited my blog. My google analytics page showed a steady amount of visitors to my blog, and I managed to wrap up around 20 followers wooooooooo.

A HILLARYS woman has been banned from owning pets and fined $10,000 after pleading guilty to animal cruelty charges. Daphne Kelly, 80, pleaded guilty to allowing her dog to suffer harm that could have been alleviated by the taking of reasonable steps, under the Animal Welfare Act. She was permanently banned from being in charge of a domestic animal and fined $10,000 in Joondalup Magistrates Court.
Ms Kelly was visited by an RSPCA inspector in April last year after a complaint about a dog in a poor condition.
The RSPCA seized the dog, a cocker spaniel named ‘Bear’, which was later euthanased.

The African elephant is listed as Endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) and by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). It is listed on Appendix I of the Convention on the Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora except for populations in those countries (Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia) which were reclassified to Appendix II.

SYDNEY’S largest animal shelter may be forced to close if a multimillion-dollar government grant doesn’t eventuate, the RSPCA says.
The RSPCA has been lobbying since 2008 for a one-off $7.5 million grant from the NSW government in order to revamp its shelter, located in the western suburb of Yagoona.
A spokeswoman for the RSPCA said parts of the building were dilapidated, with one section of roof crumbling and staff in another part of the building working near asbestos-filled walls.

”It’s not like we’ve set a timescale where we’re saying we’ll have to close in 30 days but the bottom line is we cannot continue like this indefinitely,” the spokeswoman said.
The RSPCA’s NSW chief executive, Steve Coleman, added: ”We’re at our wits’ end. We have been in consultation with the government for years to provide this one-off allocation of funds. I would hate to think that it will take a forced withdrawal of animal welfare services to the Sydney area for the government to realise exactly how imperative our operation is.”
A spokesman for the NSW Primary Industries Minister, Steve Whan, indicated that an announcement regarding the shelter could be made soon.
”The government is currently in discussions with Treasury and an announcement about RSPCA funding will be fully costed and audited,” the spokesman said.
The RSPCA says it has $35 million annual costs in NSW and receives $424,000 in state government funding.
It helps 50,000 animals in 12 shelters and four vet hospitals across NSW every year.
