500! and a Giveaway



After about a hunnert years of blogging, I'm celebrating my 500th post. Hard to believe this little ghetto kitteh, who has been excused by TW of having no attention span, has lasted 4 years and 500 posts. My first post appeared out of nowhere on September 15, 2009, blazing the way for other Twitter anipals to join the blogging world. I'm proud to say that even though I've become a lot less wordy, I continue to keep it real.

When I started blogging, I wanted to tell a funny and inneresting story every time. I posted only when something funny and inneresting happened but found it hard to build a loyal audience that way. After awhile, I suddenly realized that I was reading and commenting on over 20 blogs a day and it took a lot of time. Maybe wordy blogs weren't the way to go. They work occasionally but I didn't want my readers to see I had a new post and say "Oh no, this is gonna take forever to read." Of course, I can't imagine anyone actually saying that but it might have happened. My readers and furrends deserve a round of applause for continuing to follow the antics of a little ghetto kitteh with a less than inneresting staff, most notably the Cod-awful photographer.

Everybody Loves a Giveaway!
To show my appreciation to my loyal readers, I'm gonna give one of you a gift to celebrate #500. During last weekend's Nipclub, I won a $20 gift card from NipandBones.com. This is the 3rd Nip and Bones' card I've won this year and I'd like to pass this one along to one of you. NipandBones.com sells my favorite cat toys: the Skinneeez mouse and peacock feathers, as well as other nip, valerian and Silvervine toys. They're the only U.S. distributor for Bin's Silvervine pillows. Leave a comment on this post and tell me if you want to be entered. Everyone is eligible as long as you know their policy for international shipping. Comments made before Tuesday, June 18, 2013 will be eligible. Make sure I have your e-mail address or a way to get in touch with you. I'll put them all in TW's NY Yankee hat and pick one winner.  Hey, Woman, it's MY milestone 500th post so why aren't I getting a gift?? On that note, thanks for reading and commenting and I hope to see you for my 1000th post.
