Wow, seven years already? Time sure flies when I’m busy napping and eating all day.
So, what’s so special about the 7th year? Wait! Let me put on my thinking cat. As you know, number 7 is a special and significant number. There are 7 days in a week, 7 colors in the rainbow,7 layers of skin, 7 basic musical notes, 7 continents in the world and 7 wonders of the ancient world.
But, I’m rather intrigued about the 7 dwarfs in the fairy tale, Snow White,a lady bug commonly has 7 spots, the code for James Bond is 007, 7 Harry Potter novels, most of the mammals’ necks have seven bones, the neutral pH value is 7 and 7 beautiful letters makes us FRIENDS.
As always, my sincere thanks to all for being a part of this pawsitive journey.
NBC is 6 today!
It’s been a wonderful 6-year journey of sheer joy.
An enriching and uplifting experience
of sharing and connecting with
other fellow bloggers and readers
from around the globe.
To me, blogging is an instant getaway
from the humdrum of everyday life,
a safe haven in times of chaos.
And a place I fondly call
“My safe, happy space”
Many thanks for sharing this joy with me!
NBC is 5 today!
I can’t believe how quickly time has passed. Today is exactly 5 years since I started blogging. I was looking for a new hobby and thought it would be awesome to have an online journal. A place where I can share my a little about my life, random stuff, quotes or humor with the world.
Blogging has also been a wonderful platform for me to express myself and share my deepest thoughts and wishes which are buried deep within. You know, some things in life are so mind-boggling.
Sydelle who was then only 6-year old suggested the name ‘New Bloggy Cat’ for my blog. She adores cats and she even drew me this picture for my profile.
Two years later when she was 8, she drew another picture for me which still remained as my profile picture.
My two daughters have been and still are my biggest inspiration when it comes to blogging. And Shaye, my 6-year old use to say ‘Blob’ instead of ‘Blog’ when she was younger. I loved the way she asked me, “Mom, are you going to post something on your blob? “
What I’ve learned these past 5 years is that…
…there are so many wonderful bloggers out there who are unbelievably talented when it comes to sharing their passion.
…it is okay to make grammar mistakes because it’s all part of the learning process.
…it does not matter how many people clicked the ‘like’ button on my post or how many are following my blog. It is not about the numbers but the passion for blogging.
…blogging does not have to be for monetary gain. I once suggested to a friend to start a blog and she said to me, “I will not do anything for free.” But I believe she’s missing out on the priceless gift and joy of just blogging for fun.
…blogging is therapeutic and it makes me happy. It keeps me going and growing.
Thank you all for being part of my wonderful blogging experience!
~Keep looking up, my friends!~
My recent interview with Mewsic Radio Station:
Q: What is a blog and why do you blog, New Bloggy Cat?
A: A blog is a Big Lesson On Giving. Having a blog is a fun way to spread some love and laughter. Besides, it a great way to exercise my brain cells and helps keep my brain young.
Q: What do you blog about?
A: I blog about things that matter like love, laughter, happiness and peace.
Q: What do you like most about blogging?
A: The best part is meeting other furry friends from around the world. I enjoy reading about their fun-adventures and their eccentric humans. Just to name a few of my furry friends here:
Roxy & Tigerlino
Butterfly & Cricket
Millie & Pearl
Vivian & Maisie
Meisie & Liefie (who live with a human working in Dubai called Ger – short for Tigger).
I have also met a camel from Turkey. Uncle Spike is his name and blogging is his game He wrote a guest post for me last month on ‘What makes a camel happy?’. I bet you’ll never look at a camel the same way again after reading it.
Q: Do you read any human blogs?
A: Of course, there are so many awesome blogs to choose from. But it’s tough trying to keep up with the reading. You see, I need my daily naps and that leave me with very little time to read. Some of the blogs I’ve been following are:
The Good, Bad and Ludicrous
Living, Learning & Letting go
Teacher as Transformer
Love, Happiness & Peace
Pictures on the web
Q: Do you think humans are complicated?
A: Yes, humans are the most complicated species on earth. They tend to put their values in the wrong things. I can’t understand why they work such long hours and buy stuff they don’t need. I believe the biggest confusion humans have is what they want versus what they need.
Q: What is your advice to humans?
A: Eat more fish, take more naps, think happy and laugh heartily!
