Thankful Thursday: Thankful for Buddies

      36 Comments on Thankful Thursday: Thankful for Buddies

 

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

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.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

 

Affiliate Disclosure: Sometimes I use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if I’ve used a product and liked it, or it's a company I buy from and trust and they have affiliate programs, I sign up. Then, when I mention that product or company in one of my blog posts, I use my affiliate link. Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, I might get a little sumpin’ for my treat fund.

Yes, we have made wonderful friends here we do worry about when we don’t hear from them, or know bad weather is in their area. We think this is a great idea and have already signed up. We hope everyone does and finds buddies. We can’t have too many friends.

We think this is such a good idea and we are so lucky to have such a good buddy in Brian and his family. This buddy system really is a great idea. We are thrilled to have it. Hope all have a super day.

What a terrific idea! It is always worrisome when our blogging friends are unaccounted for.

Good stuff!

We agree that this is a wonderful initiative though it may be hard for us to find buddies close to us. Perhaps we could be buddies even though we are separated by thousands of miles? Mommy does communicate with several of our furriends through Facebook and email and it would be easy to give a quick update through either the landline internet or through the handphones. Would it be okay to choose buddies that’s NOT based on geographical location?

It might be a better idea to buddy with someone not in your area. We were without power for close to a week earlier in the month, as were 1,200,000 other people in our state. If you buddy with someone farther way and a natural disaster strikes, it probably would only affect one of the buddies, not both.
