The Pet Blogger Challenge

Well all, it's been hard for Person to blog for Moi since my untimely ascent to the Rainbow Bridge, but Seabass Cat (Sebastian The Sensitive Soul) at http://www.seabasscat.com/2011/01/im-up-for-challenge-pet-blogger.html inspired me by posting his response to the Pet Blogger Challenge. I think I might be able to Prod Person into picking up the Blogging Baton for me once again with this Challenge - at least I'll give it the Ol' Tonk Try.  So...here goes!
Challenge Questions:
1. When did you begin your blog?
Fairly recently (Person was a Late Bloomer). Just a month before I *ahem* Transitioned, in fact:  October, 2010.
2. What was your original purpose for starting a blog?
To be able to expound on my opinions in more than 140 characters!
3. Is your current purpose the same?
Maybe to give my two Proteges, Maxwell and Faraday, more of a stage to stretch themselves as they grow out of the Rugrat Stage.
4. Do you blog on a schedule or as the spirit moves you?
Oh, as the spirit moves me ... and when I can Effectively Guilt Person into thinking she's TERRIBLY neglected me!
5. Are you generating income from your blog?
Nope, but I'll bet the two Pipsqueaks could use the extra cash for Treats (Person's a bit stingy yanno).  NOTE FROM Ryker's PERSON:  I am just looking out for their health! Stingy has nothing to do with it. Ryker: HAH!
6. What do you like most about blogging in general and your blog in particular
PERSON:  The creative challenge
RYKER: Being able to have my YOWWWWWWWWWWLS (properly) translated.
7. What do you like least?
Trying to carve out the time to do it justice!!

8. How do you see your blog changing or growing in 2011?
Not really sure - am still learning the ropes, but I have High Expectations that Person will be Required to meet. No, Rilly.  I plan to rope Faraday into High Pressure Sales as one tactic.
So, how'd I do with my first Challenge?


  1. Way to go buddy! Just keep blogging. You has to lay the law down with the staff sometimes to get dem to do it. Just get firm!! (he he- hope your staff is more trainable den M is - she's a work in progress)

  2. Ryker! Blog on Buddy.... U done gooood! & I heard they dont have censorship OTRB... so U can rilly give the ankle-biters a piece of Ur mind. Oh, and BTW, when U get Faraday learnd howz 2 make some $ for treats... lemme know how... me MuM's stingy too.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss -- and glad this challenge helped you get back to blogging. I would have sat shiva with you, had I known.

  4. So sorry to hear about your loss... sending lots of hugs your way. I enjoyed reading your post... look forward to reading more.

  5. My condolences on your loss. Sometimes writing can really help.

    Diane and Cosmo Havanese

  7. Thank you, @Edie, @PupFan and @Vicky, for your condolences. Two months yesterday that I slipped suddenly OTRB and Person still grieving, but now that she has her hands full with the Pipsqueaks, they help ameliorate it a bit (yup, had to go loo kthat one up in the Rainbow Webster's - 2011 Edition!)

    Hugs and Purrs to you all - and @Suki, we'll be on the lookout for those FAABulous Moneymaking Opportunities so all anipals everywhere gain Treat Independence!
