6 Things I’ve Learned About Blogging

Friends, guess what today is? It’s my first blogoversay! That’s right, Three Chatty Cats got its start one year ago today on January 20, 2016.

That date seems like so long ago, yet also just yesterday. First off, I can’t believe that it’s already 2017. And that a whole year has gone by with my blog is amazing (to me, anyway).

While I still have a lot to learn about blogging, I thought I’d take this time to share what I’ve learned this past year. So, if you’re new to blogging or an old pro, I hope something from this list speaks to you. Continue reading “6 Things I’ve Learned About Blogging”

A Dramatic Dexter Takes His Sunday Selfies

Some readers may know that Dexter is the shyest of the three chatty cats. But did you know he’s also the most dramatic? As depicted in his latest Sunday Selfies.

Dexter said to me, “Ma, I’m going close today.”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Dexter: “I’m doing an extreme close-up today. Gonna show all my good sides.”

Okay, so that convo didn’t happen. But about Continue reading “A Dramatic Dexter Takes His Sunday Selfies”

Did you watch the Rose Parade?

First off, Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings you joy, happiness and love. Now, did you watch the Rose Parade yesterday? If you did, I hope you saw the Lucy Pet float. I was one of the volunteers who had the wonderful opportunity to help decorate the Lucy Pet float this year.

While at BlogPaws in June last year, my fellow attendee (Jaimi) and I met the Lucy Pet team. Somehow the float was brought up and we were added to the float decoration team. It was a fantastic experience and something I would definitely do again.

Decorating the Float

Jaimi and I drove up to Irwindale bright and early on December 27th. We parked at a designated volunteer lot and then were Continue reading “Did you watch the Rose Parade?”

Secret Paws!

Sophie here! The Mama finally let us open our Secret Paws presents. We had been sniffing the box and wrapped presents for what seemed like ages. And when we finally got at ‘em, we weren’t disappointed.

We would like to say a very big thank you to our new kitty friend Samantha and her mom Chandra from Life from a Cat’s Perspective for picking out the awesome toys and treats!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday filled with lots of love (and catnip)! Continue reading “Secret Paws!”

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It should, right? Christmas is only four days away!

Just a quick maintenance note before I get to all the holiday fun. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve now migrated the blog over to being self-hosted. I was told that anyone who subscribed to the blog via WordPress.com will now only see posts in WP Reader and will no longer receive emails when there’s a new post. If you still want to receive email notifications, then you will need to subscribe again, which you can do on the sidebar to the right (if you’re on a computer) or at the very bottom (if you’re on mobile). Sorry for the hassle – this only applies to WP.com readers. If you subscribed with your email address before, you should continue to receive email post notifications as usual.

Holiday Cards

Thank you to all our kitty, doggie and human friends for sending all of the wonderful Continue reading “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”
