First — BIG thanks to all who participated in the Pet Blogger Challenge, which was successful beyond imagining. Kenzo (aka Leo) suggested we do it again next year. I suggested that he organize it.
I was bowled over by the diversity of pet bloggers out there, including a cadre of Spanish-speaking cat bloggers, a blogger from Japan who focuses on blind dogs, and one who has a little diabetic doggie like Frankie. I’m still trying to read through all the entries.
I’m not, however, going to try to do a wrap up: Pamela of Something Wagging this Way Comes and Leo at Kenzo the Hovawart have already done that, and done it well. If anyone else has, please share in the comments section. (I’m not putting up another Linky, sorry, though if I may say so I’m now a Linky expert.)
One of the things I learned: That our blogs are important to us, important enough to want to give them the thought and attention that participating in the challenge involved. And things that are important deserve to be treated with respect. So rather than looking at the schedule as a bully, I’m going to regard it as a necessary structure for a forum that I care about.
Speaking of forums, this Saturday is the Blog for Change for Animals event, and I’m planning to take part. I even managed to put up the badge, created by the multi-talented Kim Clune, who also created the Pet Blogger Challenge badge; that tech stuff eventually sinks in. Read all about it at the Be Change for Animals site.
Hope to see you there.
