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.
If you think about what inspired you to start blogging, the clear answer for most pet bloggers would likely be their pets. And that’s no different for me. My cats inspired me to start Three Chatty Cats a little over two years ago.
To go a step further, I’d say that it’s my combined passion for cats, writing and photography that inspired my blog. But are those three passions enough to sustain a blog? Perhaps not. So, let’s go one level deeper…
While my core passions lit the internal spark to create a blog, it’s really my interests, skills and innate talents combined with those passions that truly allow me to create high-quality content for Three Chatty Cats.
If you look at your own blogging journey, perhaps you’ll find it’s the same for you.
It’s been two years since I started Three Chatty Cats back on January 20, 2016, which means that today is our second blogoversary! The blog evolved a bit this year, as I started fostering cats. So naturally, the blog had a lot of posts about our foster cats.
Dexter, Olive, Sophie and I are over the moon. We learned yesterday that Three Chatty Cats won Best Cause Blog at the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Continue reading “Catching Up with Three Chatty Cats”
Friends, guess what today is? It’s my first blogoversary! 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”
On Tuesday afternoon a very exciting and unexpected email arrived. I learned that Three Chatty Cats had been nominated for two BlogPaws 2016 Nose-to-Nose Awards – Best Cause Blog and Best New Pet Blog.
I started Three Chatty Cats in January simply because I love cats and enjoy writing, and I thought it would be fun to marry two of my passions. I didn’t have a firm direction or plan in mind with my first few posts. But I quickly discovered that Continue reading “The Three Chatty Cats Say Thank You”
I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award, which I had never heard of – and chances are if you’re not a blogger, you’ve never heard of it either. I immediately Googled it and found a very informative post about it. From what I gather, the awards that go around in the blogging world are to help recognize and get to know fellow bloggers. The Liebster Award is geared toward new bloggers.
It appears that some see award nominations as an inconvenience – just another thing to have to do. The post I read equated blogging awards to a chain letter. Of course you don’t have to “accept” the nomination and follow the outlined steps. But for me, why not? It’s a good way to get to know my fellow bloggers, and I by no means will hold it against any of my nominees if they choose to ignore it. The hardest part about this for me will be sharing 11 interesting facts. I don’t talk about myself often; I’d rather talk about cats! But here goes… Continue reading “Liebster Award Nomination”
