We all get close to our blogging buddies and when something happens, perhaps a tornado, earthquake, hurricane, or wildfire. we worry like crazy because we don’t know if our buddies are okay. One reason is that we usually read each others blogs, but we never actually connect outside of our blogs. We might know where you are from, but we really don’t know how to contact you. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had an organized system to help us and our buddies team up? Our friend Cheri from Cats of Wildcat Woods had a wonderful idea. She has come up with Pet Blogging Buddies to try and help us connect with someone close to us. I love this idea and it has so much potential for all of us, but in order for it to work we need to purrticipate.
The general idea is based on the tried and true Buddy System. You team up with a buddy, someone geographically close to you, and you keep in contact with your buddy to make sure all is well with them. Pretty simple, but let me give you an example. I live in Greenville, SC and we are buddies with Marg and Puddles from We 3 Doxies, but in this case I will use Marg as my example. I know that Marg posts on her blog every day and she usually leaves a comment on my blog early in the morning. If I don’t hear from her I figure something is not normal and I’m going to be checking on Marg. I have Marg’s contact information and she has mine, we’re buddies. A couple of weeks ago Marg had a bad thunderstorm roll through her area and it knocked out her phone service…no phone, no internet, no blogging or commenting. Marg called from her cell phone me to let me know and I was able to let others know that Marg was okay.
Pet Blogging Buddies is a great place for you to sign up based on where you live and then you can connect with a buddy or buddies. Sign up and connect. Now, listen up, not too many of you have been there and signed up yet. What are you waiting for?
I am thankful for my buddies and you will be thankful for yours too. Keep track of your buddies and we’ll all sleep easier.
