I'm Up For a Challenge: The Pet Blogger Challenge

The cool humans at Go Pet Friendly and Will My Dog Hate Me came up with this fun challenge. They came up with questions that let all of us pet bloggers get a little history on one another. Even though I'm pretty late to the party I wanted to join in, so here goes!

1. When did you begin your blog?
I began my blog in April of last year.

2. What was your original purpose for starting a blog?
I just wanted a place to share my thoughts and ideas with other anipals and their humans.

3. Is your current purpose the same?
Yes, mostly. I love to share what's going on in my life, but I've expanded my purpose a bit. I also enjoy sharing thoughts on pet adoption and how we can improve the lives of homeless pets in shelters.

4. Do you blog on a schedule or as the spirit moves you?
Pretty much just as the spirit moves me. I have tried to set a schedule for myself, but it's hard when I have to rely on Mom to type for me.

5. Are you generating income from your blog?
No, I'm not really interested on generating income from it. I like the connections I have from it and sharing ideas. That's all I need from my blog!

6. What do you like most about blogging in general and your blog in particular?
In general, I like having an outlet for my stories and ideas. What I like most about my blog is how laid back it is. I try to share happy thoughts and neat ideas for helping your local shelter. I think that my blog is good for bringing a smile to my readers' faces.

7. What do you like least?
Sometimes I feel like it's hard for me to keep up. Mom and I don't always have time to write, even though I've got lots of things I'd like to write about. Also, I worry that I'm not making the most of my blog because we're not very computer smart. That's why I'm sending Mom to BlogPaws again! Lastly, I get frustrated by not knowing how to gain more readers.

8. How do you see your blog changing or growing in 2011?
I'm thinking of changing my layout a little bit. I wonder a lot if the color scheme is too dark and if the columns are too narrow. I've already made one change-Mom got me a custom domain! I think I'll be easier to reach now at http://www.seabasscat.com/. Now I just need to get new cards made!
