NaNoWriMo With a Twist of Lemon

Have you noticed anything different about me? Uh, no, I did NOT change my hairstyle. I’ve been writing every day! YAY! In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I decided I would, in true American style, steal the event and reshape it to meet my deepest desires.

It’s National Cat Day!

As if the internet wasn’t already saturated with feline cuteness, here comes National Cat Day! I think we’re supposed to promote cat adoptions? Or maybe we’re supposed to buy stuff.

Want Some Free Publicity From Me? This is What it Takes.

I’ve told you before that I get a lot of emails from people wanting me to promote their product for free. Some do more than just send a mass email; they send an email just to me, then in a day or two send a follow-up email just to be sure I got their first … Continue reading

I don’t brag about being a pet blogger. I don’t hide the fact, either. Except when I’m test-driving a new service provider for my pets.  I want to see how they’d treat me if they didn’t expect me to go public with the experience. Today, Bubba and I returned to the new vet’s office for another … Continue reading

Let’s face it, advertisers have us all convinced that we show how much we love our family and friends by how much we spend on them.
