HELLO AND WELCOME TO WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) AND CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. Glad you are here and reading.

WHY WE ARE HERE

We are here because of the 9TH ANNUAL PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE. Why look back on the previous year(2018)? I think that if we do that we can not only usher 2018 out properly but look on what good we accomplished for the animals. I ask you to join us for the PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE. To learn more you can go to GO PET FRIENDLY . The PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE goes through January 20-26. If you would like to read, compare or both my post for the PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE can be found by clicking HERE. Do check last year’s post out. Now onto answer some questions so you can learn a little bit about me and my blogs but first a BRIEF LOOK BACK ON 2018.

LOOKING BACK ON 2018

As I look back on the year 2018, I find that like any blogger I had ups and downs on my blogs. I was on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE more than WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) since I had some personal issues I had to take care but hope to be on it more in 2019. Now let’s get to those questions.

QUESTIONS FOR THE PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE

1.) For those who may be visiting your blog for the first time, how long have you been blogging and what’s your main topic? I have been blogging for 2 years with WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)(January 2017) and almost 2 years for CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE(April 2017). My main topic is Animals but I also like to talk about Country Living, Family, Poetry and so much more.

2.) What was your proudest blogging moment of 2018? Reaching my 2 year blogiversary on WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)(January 2017 – 2019) and my 2nd year blogiversary on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S SITE(APRIL 2017 – 2019). OK, it runs into 2019 but not very much.

3.) What was the biggest blogging challenge you faced in 2018, how did/will you tackle it? My biggest blogging challenge was dealing with some personal issues and I didn’t blog as much. However, I tried to post at least once a week on at least one of my blogs.

4.) Which of your 2018 blog posts was your favorite and why? I had trouble picking which posts were my favorite so I just chose one. As it happens it comes from CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. The post is called Friendly Fill – Ins. The link is FRIENDLY FILL – INS . Why? It’s fun and I got good results. specifically, I got 21 comments and 14 likes.

5.) Which of your 2018 posts was most popular with your audience? Why do you think it does so well? Since I took my favorite post from my other site I took the post from my other site. One of my posts that did so well was DAISY MAE’S CAT QUOTES. Why did it do so well? I think it’s because my readers like animals and cats and could relate to the quotes when they read them.

6.) Did you implemented a new series, feature, or practice on your blog in 2018 that you’re enjoying? YES. I do more blog hop posts which are fun, I go to blogs that have blog parties or meet & greets,  I’m checking and double checking All comments and I enabled comment moderation on WordPress.

7.) As the social media landscape changes, how are you promoting your blog posts and connecting with new readers? I’m currently on Google+ and LinkedIn. I’m. I also have all the WordPress sharing buttons so Others and myself can share. I’m attending more blog hops which gets me in touch with other readers. I also try to attend blog parties too.

8.) Looking forward to 2019, if you accomplish only one thing through your blog, what do you hope it is? Learning how to code. I tried in 2017 and 2018 with no luck.

9.) What steps are you planning to take to ensure you reach your goal? Keep Trying.

10.) Now it’s your turn! How can we help? Is there an area where you could use some advice,or an aspect of your blog you’d like input on? Coding, How to get guest authors to write posts after they accepted(not the ones who accepted but then contacted you with a reason they couldn’t do it). All SEO.

Queen Daisy Mae’s Cat Quotes

DSCN0748

Welcome everyone. I’m back for another edition of my famous Cat quotes. Those you’ll find below.

1.) Cats’ hearing apparatus is built to allow the human voice to easily go in one ear and out the other.

                                     —Stephen Baker

2.) A cat sees no good reason why it should obey another animal, even if it does stand on two legs.

                                            —Sarah Thompson

3.) Many cats simply pounce to their own drummers.

                                    —Karen Duprey

4.) Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.

                                    —Missy Dizick

5.) Cats keep their cool, no matter what. Even when they do things like fall or lose their  balance, they’ll walk away with an attitude that seems t o say, “I meant to do that.”

                                       —Michael Jordan

6.) Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire, he is still only a whisker away from the wilds.

                                                                                      —Jean Burden

           7.) A cat will do what it wants when it wants, and there’s not a thing you can do about it.

                                       —Frank Perkins

8.) There are hundreds of good reasons for having a cat, but all you need is one.

                                     —Anonymous

9.) If cats seem distant and aloof it is because this is not their native planet—they are here just to visit and dominate.

                                  —Hank Roll

10.) The cat always leaves a mark on his friend.

                         —Aesop

11.) Nature abhors a vacuum, but not as much as cats do.

                                   —Lee Entrekin

12.) There is one way in which cats differ from all other animals, and that is in the effect they have on human beings.

                                              —Patricia Dale-Green

13.) A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatsoever and generally stopping before it gets there.

                                      —Agnes Repplier

14.) To bathe a cat takes brute force, perseverance, courage of conviction—and a cat. The last ingredient is usually hardest to come by.

                                    —Stephen Baker

15.) I don’t mind a cat, in its place. But its place is not the middle of my back at 4 a.m.

                                                           —Maynnard Good Stoddard

16.) You are my cat, and I am your human.

                                       —Hilaire Belloc

17.) Cats never feel threatened. They are genetically incapable of accepting that anyone could possibly dislike anything as perfect as a cat.

                                   —Kathy Young

18.) Personally, I don’t believe felines are a fad. We’re here to stay.

                                       —Morris the Cat
