An Announcement from Dear DeDe

Hello everybody! It’s me, DeDe!


After careful consideration, we have decided to reduce our publications to 4 days per week.

The current schedule is simply too difficult, especially to put out all this effort with no compensation.

We aren’t leaving, we love you all, and we hope you stick with us.

Much love to you all!

  2. I can totally relate to the time issue. Since I have this new job with a 35-40 minute commute one way and having to work 9 hours a day for four of the five days a week, I completely understand the time. If you went down to 1 or 2 days a week, I would still read as I enjoy the post and I always have you guys on FB and Twitter. Love to you all, Joyce

    Also, for those of you reading this, my Daddy, Mommy and I are collecting donations for the APL to help the animals in need. If you would like to donate, click here: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/themesnthings/2012-doggy-dollars-kitty-kash This is our second year helping out and we plan to continue help those animals that were neglected and abused, as I was adopted from the APL and know firsthand on how their care & love helped me find my forever home! Pass this link on to ALL that you know! Thanks!

  7. we hear you!!

    Last year I was posting and reading the over 300 blogs that I follow nearly 7 days a week.

    My goal for 2012 was to cut down the number of blog posts SIGNIFICANTLY.

    Cat Chat is my primary blog and I commit to 3 posts per week (reserving the extra days for something I may want to blog about should the mood hit me)

    Dakota’s Den is my secondary and frankly I do 3 posts or 2 (last week I had more but that is NOT the norm.)

    I also had to cut down the number of days that I read the blogs that I follow. It was all becoming way too time consuming and was causing stress and this is SUPPOSED to be “fun!”

    Good decision!

  8. Sometimes, less is more. Will be on the lookout for your posts.

  9. De De – It’s not a problem from my viewpoint either. I’d rather see thoughtful posts less frequently than posts that merely fill a page because you don’t have time. I’d be surprised anyone drops you because your frequency goes down.

  36. Hi DeDe!

    We totally understand how you feel. We are still posting almost every day but we have not been able to read many blogs. This is why I sit down every Sunday night and Monday morning and try to catch up on all the blogging. We will still be here when you have the new posts!:)

  43. Hey, Dear DeDe, we totally understand. We ourselves had to cut back to a few times a week between the New Year Day and the beginning of Lent! We love you whenever and however you are here with us! Will find you on Twitter and FB, I hope!

    Posted by granbee | March 12, 2012, 2:46 PM
  44. Daily posts amaze me. I am a chronic under-achiever and post whenever the urge hits me. So I totally understand cutting back and I still love you.

    Licks and cuddles,
