Update: We’re revamping our website and will not be posting on Wednesday, April 3rd. See you on Thursday!
Thank-you to everyone who voted for our one-eyed boy Odin. He’s in the running for AmazeCat’s Next Top Cat. There are 8 groups of 4 cats totaling 32 cats. Odin will be competing against his friend Allie and two cats we’ve never heard of: Coco-Nut and Smoosh. Odin received 388 votes, Allie 340 votes, Coco-Nut 777 votes and Smoosh a whopping 1176! We’re back at square one with voting but we’re not optimistic about winning. To follow all the action, visit AmazeCats.com or at their Facebook page
The front runner is Little Bear with over 3000 votes and we feel it’s fun just having gotten this far. There are thousands of cat blogs and I see them as a microcosm of the competitive nature of life. We can’t all be at the top. We can’t always win. There will always be someone better and worse. I used to think it would be great to have 1000 Facebook fans but when I reached 5000, I wondered what 10,000 would be like. It never ends. Then there are the pages with 20,000, 50,000 or 100,000 +. If we compare, we’ll never be happy. Not with Facebook numbers, Twitter followers and any other number, prize or accolade.
What I’ve learned about blogging for five years (almost two at Cat Wisdom 101) is to stay true to your values. Know what you’re good at. Doing what you love shows. Do your best; keep learning, improving, sharing and don’t sweat it. It’s just a blog. Have fun!
Can you imagine our cats pulling their fur over numbers or winning? I think they’d laugh and say, “You silly humans, you’ve already won by simply living with a cat or three.”
We’re going to have a whole new look in a few days so please excuse our appearance as things are added and tweaked. If you Tweet, please follow us at @CatWisdom101. We’ll still be tweeting as @Boomermuse but mostly stuff from our other blog Boomer Muse.
