Oh Wow! I think I would have a lot of questions I would want to ask. Some of my questions would probably be: Did I get married? Who did I marry? What’s he like? Did I ever get to own or co-own my own business. Did I retire or get a job? Did I ever master computers? Did I ever master blogging and the technical side of blogging? Did I ever get a chance to meet some of my blogger friends? There are so many questions I have. Did I reach my short-term goals?

I think she’ll live in a castle somewhere in Ireland.

Probably my flexibility and living with my parents and etc…

The Pet Blogger Challenge

WELCOME:

Hello everyone and welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE .

WHY WE ARE HERE: 

We are here today because of The Pet Blogger Challenge. Having two sites that are devoted pets and animals is fun. I try to blog regularly especially on CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. This site is about Photos, Blogging, Animals and Much, Much More.

LOOKING BACK ON THE YEAR 2017:

As I look Back on the year 2017 I find that like any blogger there were ups and downs. I started my blogging venture on January 9, 2017 for WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and in April 2017, I started CRYSTAL PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. As you might notice that CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE received a make-over, a new name and a new tag. CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE is now CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAES PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and the tag has been updated to say PHOTOS, BLOGGING,FAMILY, ANIMALS, COUNTRY LIVING, POETRY AND MORE. Oh what an experience that has been. During 2017, I took 3 blogging courses from Blogging University to learn more about blogging.

QUESTIONS FOR THE PET BLOGGER CHALLENGE:

1.) For those who may be visiting your blog for the very first time, how long have you been blogging and what is your main topic? Since this is a combined post for both of my blogs, I will state both tag lines separately. For CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S SITE the site is about PHOTOS, BLOGGING, FAMILY, ANIMALS, COUNTRY LIVING, POETRY AND MORE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) is about FAMILY, COUNTRY LIVING, ANIMALS, PHOTOS AND MORE. WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING About Page can be found at https://daisymae2017.wordpress.com/about/ and MY ABOUT PAGE for CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE  is at https://crystalsphotobloggingsite.wordpress.com/about/ .

2.) What was your proudest blogging moment of 2017? My proudest moments of 2017 had to be being awarded the Supawstars Award on both of my blogs. The posts for WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) AND CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE can be found at INSTRUCTIONS FOR GIVING THE SUPAWSTARS SPOTLIGHT AWARD AWAY  , I WAS HONORED WITH THE SUPAWSTARS SPOTLIGHT AWARD , THE SUPAWSTARS SPOTLIGHT AWARD and I have had the opportunity to give it away too and you can see who received it at Merry Blogmas: Day 14 – The Supawstars Spotlight Award(December) . I was also honored by doing some guest posts as well. My Guests posts were for  Katzenworld , The Recipe HunterMy Interview and Daisy Mae’s Story( A Referral Post) on Supaw cute . I  also got my cat on Tummy Rub Tuesday and the Daily Kitten. As you can see, I have plenty of good moments in 2017 as a pet blogger.

 

3. Which of your blog posts was your favorite this year and why?  What a tough question. I was honored in many ways in 2017 and I was grateful for that but my favorite posts have to be when KittyClysm honored both of my blogs as Pet Blogs.

4. In terms of your blog, how do you measure success?  I tend to measure my blogs success by shares, views, reblogs, page views, comments and the people I meet online. I enjoy conversing with others by their blog or blogs.

5. In what ways has your blog changed in 2017? Both of my Blogs had a name change and my one blog, CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE had a complete makeover.

6.What was the biggest blogging challenge you overcame in 2017, and what did you learn that could help other bloggers?  I had many challenges when I started blogging but the one thing I learned and would recommend to other bloggers and would-be bloggers out there is that before you start blogging you should:

  1. Do research on Domain Sites.
  2. Learn about the plans available(The cost).
  3. Choose a site.
  4. Once you’ve chosen a site, be smart and take blogging courses. WordPress has great blogging courses and the best part they are Free. WordPress blogging courses can be taken at Blogging University. To sign up or learn more go to: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/ .

7. When things get hard, what keeps you blogging? If I get blogger’s block, I dig deep because blogging is about writing from the heart. I also enjoy and have fun blogging.

8. Looking forward to 2018, what are you hoping to accomplish on your blog this year? On CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE I hope to hit 100 followers. Of Course I hope for a lot more. On WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I hope to reach 1000 followers and like my other site I hope to accomplish more than that.

9. In addition to what you’d like to accomplish, is here one specific skill you’d like to improve or master this year? Although there is many things I would love to master or improve upon, coding is the one thing I want to master this year.

10. Now it’s your turn! You have the attention of the pet blogging community – is there a question you’d like answered, or an aspect of your blog that you’d like input on? Share it here and we’ll answer you in the comments! Like Playful Kitty , I would like feedback on both of my blogs  CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). Also, I would appreciate any suggestions as well. Another thing I want feedback on are my themes. They are both retired and WordPress wants them changed but they are willing to let me keep them since I used them before. What are your thoughts. Please note that I’m open to all suggestions
