It’s been a pretty bad couple of weeks hasn’t it? First we learned that Paula Gregg was diagnosed with cancer and the next thing we knew is that she was gone. Today I’m thankful for the her friendship and the contributions that Paula made to our blogging world and I’m thankful for the outpouring of love and support that was evident in the blogging world and on social media.
Paula and I became friends when she started blogging back in 2008. I was really excited to find another blogger that lived in South Carolina. Although we only lived an hour and a half away, we were virtual friends until we finally met at BlogPaws in 2017. When we finally met the virtual thing went right out the window, the friendship was already there.
Paula was very persuasive, she told me she was interesting it taking over The Cat Blogosphere but was only interested in doing it if I would join her in the venture. As you know, she won me over. Paula contributed so much to our little corner of the internet and everything always had a positive impact and moved us all forward, individually and as a team. Pet blogging and Cat Writing is better because of Paula.
Facebook, unlike Twitter, doesn’t have Trending Topic data, but if they did then surely Paula Gregg’s passing would have been a trending topic. So many recounted their special encounters with Paula, each brought additional tears and smiles. Thank you Paula for having such a positive impact on so many. We’ll always remember you, your words, your deeds and your beautiful smile.
Okay, that’s it for me toady, what are you thankful for? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
