I said I had some exciting news, and I do! I’ve been chosen as one of Petfinder.com’s Adopted Bloggers. They’re giving us a little stipend ($200) to help cover our expenses at BlogPaws, taking us out for a delicious lunch, and posting us up on their website as one of their chosen ten!
Their judging criteria was as follows:
- Passion for Animal Welfare and Pets (as demonstrated by their survey responses, blog and social activity) – 40%
- Professionalism and Development Desired – 30%
- Audience Engagement and Reach – 20%
- Overall Quality of Survey Responses – 10%
So, a big thank you to all my readers and supporters. I couldn’t have done it without you and your wonderful comments, submissions, ideas, and responses. We’re leaving tomorrow for BlogPaws, and I can’t wait to share with you everything I’ve learned and discovered.
And, if you haven’t thought about it today, please consider adopting a special needs pet. We special needs animals win awards and stuff because we are just that amazing. I lost my leg, but I gained a voice!
I leave you with a photo of the fabulous little hand-crafted bell my gram FOD brought us as a gift from Capri, Italy. She conducts tours there twice a year and just returned with this fabulous little trinket.
