Weekend report

 It was cold and snowy here though not much of the white stuff stuck to the ground. Mom mostly stayed home after running a couple of errands. We mostly slept.

Pet Bloggers Journey

 Another blogger has challenged others and mom decided we need to participate:

Except maybe Ivy

1. When did you begin your blog and what do you currently write about?  

August 10, 2009. We write about fostering kittens, my cats, rescue, education and cats. Ha

2. Name one thing about your blog or one blogging goal accomplished during 2020. 

Mom had a job change in November 2019 so the goal was just to try to keep post in 2020. We had to cut back from every day but managed to keep posting as often as I could.

3. Which 2020 post was most popular? Why do you think it does so well? 

A post about Chanel and Goldfish - and no idea why it got the most views. 

4. Biggest blogging challenge in 2020 and how you tackled it. 

2020 was just weird. It was hard to try to focus on being positive about posting and kittens when the real world was experiencing so many negative things. It helped to remember that people were following us and reading as an escape.

5. One thing you learned in 2020 that can help other bloggers. 

Do what you can. And know that everyone is frustrating with the changes to readership and technology. Focus on what you know and what you feel you can contribute.

6. Top three goals for 2021. 

Get back to a regular schedule. 

7. In a perfect world, where do you see yourself and the blog in one year? 

Honestly, doing the same thing. We never got into this for money or fame or anything like that. For us it is about tracking the kittens that come through here, our personal stories and spreading the word about rescue.

8. If you have $1,000 to spend on your blog, how would you spend it? 

Actually, mom would love to spend it on my foster room. So much of what we write about goes on in there and the room could work so much better. 

9. What is one skill you would like to learn or improve? 

No doubt there is much to learn about SEO and increasing readership and followers.

10. If you could ask the pet blogging community for help with one challenge you're having with your blog, what would it be? 

That's tough. We love being part of this community and we know we can always reach out to fellow bloggers with issues.
