I've always been a naturally shy person. For me, writing this blog has helped me get out of my comfort zone and take more chances in life. The only writing I really did before blogging was writing letters and e-mails to friends, and participating in message board forums. For all of you who come in and read this blog, I thank you with all of my heart. For those of you who have left comments, I can't begin to tell you how much reading all of them has made my day.
It's hard to believe that six months has passed since my first blog post. This blog started as part of a class I was taking at the community college, and it has been going strong since.
Here are some interesting facts about Too Kool Doggies:
- There's been a total of 116 posts (not including this one)
- Our RSS subscribers has increased 250%.
- Too Kool Doggies blog has been read in 45 countries and 28 different languages.
- I had my first one-on-one interview with portrait artist, Aimée Hoover.
Moving forward, I am going to taking some steps to help improve my blog. I will feature more interviews, book reviews, podcasts and posts that are useful to dog owners. I will be making moderate changes to the design. I'm also looking for guest bloggers. If any of you are interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am going to do more giveaways, including one that will be coming up this weekend.
In the meantime, I'd like to share with you some of my popular and favorite posts that you may have missed or would like to read again. These are from oldest posts to most recent.
