Cat Blog Celebration!!!!


I won't bore anyone, including myself, with trying to recount the drudgery of the day--painting, cleaning rentals. Suffice it to say, I'm glad it's over. One day I hope to be able to paint a picture instead of door frames. I'm loving this blogging stuff more and more and Google is fantastic for providing such easy to use software. I wish I could handle developing my website as well. Anyway, I got a book from the library to try and understand the details of blogging better. I'm still not sure of so many things, such as linking--is it through the buttons on someone's site or by mentioning it in your post and linking with the button on the post? Are they both the same thing? So many questions. But one thing I did find out is that I have a "cat blog" according to the expert, Seth Godin, quoted in the book "What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting" by Ted Demopoulos. According to Mr. Godin there are three types of blogs: cat blogs, boss blogs and viral blogs. I got the impression that cat blogs were inferior because they're "personal idiosyncratic" blogs that most people wouldn't be interested in. Yet some people "watch stupid sitcoms on TV," therefore, some cat blogs are very popular. Go figure. Seeing the number of cats I've posted on the site, I felt an inferiority complex sneak up. But I came to my senses and said screw it, I'm going to do what I want, say what I want because no one is really looking anyways (but I guess that's what he was talking about.) To the few who may stop by--thanks and Hi!--I hope you won't be too harsh in your judgement of a newbie cat blogger. So in celebration of the anonymous cat blog, here are two new pictures of Grady. Yipee!! The pineapples are from our garden and the second picture shows how happy Grady is sleeping in Marley's bed (just look at that smile!)

Ted,
Impressive you found my little blog. I'm hoping to glean some good secrets like that from your excellent book. Thanks for the compliment, too.
