DogDaz Zoo: 4 Years of Blogging

collage 2015 namesNovember 28 marks 4 years of blogging for DogDaz Zoo.  I have done a post almost every day during that time and many days I have posted twice.  Since November 2011, I have published over 2,633 posts, received more than 23,459 comments, with 94,113 views and 1,831 people followers.  Those numbers blow my mind.  DogDaz started because of my love for my dogs and cats and my interest in connecting to a global community of animal lovers.  It was a way to share my deep enjoyment of animals, my love of technology,  and my desire to converse with others of a like mind.  The journey has been rewarding and wonderful.

There are so many times I have thought about not blogging anymore. Those of you that post your own stuff know how hard it is to keep a constant schedule – coming up with new material, making sure you meet your deadlines.  All that can wear on you after 1,400 or so days.  But I love to blog. The once or twice I have taken more than a few days break, I have missed it tremendously.  That is why I always find a way, day after day, to share fun photos, stories, and stuff.

Life at the zoo has gotten pretty busy.  The daylight is shorter and the workday is longer. There seems to be less and less time to be creative (bummer).  I think I am going to alter my publishing schedule a little to give myself a break.  Maybe, I will do 4 days out of 7 or something like that?  I love the interaction with my readers and don’t want to lose that. Many of you, your animals, your families, feel like old friends. I have watched you grow and you have watched us.  We share your high moments, and sadly, sometimes, your low moments.  Thank you for 4 great blog years.  I look forward to lightening my blogging load to get more time to read your stuff.

Monday Mischief: Duck-Duck-GOOSE!

MM 11.23.15

We had so much fun on the river on an unseasonably warm November day.  Mom says that Amy’s Mom told her that we should not chase the geese or ducks because they will lure us out into the middle of the river and gang up on us and drown us.  Is that really true?  They look so fun to go after.  Oh well, we will just have to chase each other.

What mischief did you get into today?



This is a blog hop. I hopped it from MYBrownNewfies. Check them out for more mischief.
