Put on your party hats because today is our third blogoversary! It’s been a fun year for us here at Three Chatty Cats (and the Jr. Associates), and what better way to celebrate our third year than by taking a look back at some of our happenings and highlights.
Harley Joins the Crew
First up, Harley became an official Chatty Cat on January 22, 2018 when we finalized his adoption (he’s a foster fail). We blogged about it in February.
Three Chatty Cats Get Chatty
In March, in an effort to engage our social media followers more, we started posting daily chats from the cats on both Facebook and Instagram. And since I know social media doesn’t reach all our followers, we also debuted our “Chatty Cats” series here on the blog, which is a weekly recap of our chats.
What Keeps You Motivated?
In May, I wrote for BlogPaws about Combining Your Passions and Talents to Create High-Quality Content and told a little more about my inspiration in starting my blog and how I stay motivated.
A New Name
Halfway through the year, I finally gave in to Woodrow and Harley’s demands and renamed the blog Three Chatty Cats and the Jr. Associates. I debuted a new blog header as well as this little video.
Remember Me Thursday
In September, we partnered with Helen Woodward Animal Center and our good friends at Lola the Rescued Cat to host the first ever Remember Me Thursday blog hop!
We wrote two posts for Remember Me Thursday to help shine a light on orphan pets in shelters that are waiting for their forever homes.
Woodrow wrote his Pro Tips for Adopting a Shelter Cat (from a former shelter cat!)…
…and I wrote about My Rescue Pets.
12 Days of Giveaways
We rounded out 2018 and our third year of blogging by hosting 12 Days of Giveaways. The cats certainly enjoyed the product testing part. And while it was a lot of work on my end, it was all worth it. We had 4,462 total giveaway entries and 16 lucky winners!
Not About the Blog
And now, a quick look at some non-blogging highlights from this past year.
I became a Professional Member of the Cat Writers’ Association in February. Later in the year, I joined their social media team as a volunteer, creating some of the graphics used on Facebook and Instagram.
2018 was also my second full year of volunteering for The Jackson Galaxy Project’s Cat Pawsitive Pro initiative. For the spring semester, I wrote several articles about the clicker-training program. And for the fall semester, I stepped into the role of editor as well.
I love that blogging has opened up opportunities that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. But the ultimate highlight of this past year was continuing to form relationships with readers, social media followers and fellow bloggers.
I hope our fourth year of blogging is just as fun and productive! And maybe we’ll try something new this year. Any suggestions?
