Blogging is Hard Work

Did you ever stop to think all the time that goes into writing a post for a blog?  There are some days there is only a  photo posted and other days there are product reviews and stories.  Even the posting of a "simple" photo requires a few hours.

First, there is the chore of capturing your cat (or dog) in a photograph that can actually be used.  We stay indoors all the time and our house has very little natural light, so Mom Paula is constantly trying to get a clear photo without the yellow tones and ghostly eyes.  There's also the fact that we are usually moving in all of the photos.

The next step is choosing that one photo from hundreds that will tell the story you're trying to convey. Then we start editing with various software programs to crop, straighten, and edit the photo.  This could take a few hours if you have a photo with clutter in the background or if you need to add logos or quotes.

Deciding a title for your post usually comes after the blog is written for us.  Mom Paula tends to look at the photo and let it tell her a story.  Our narrative reflects that story and our title summarizes the story.

There is a lot more work for a sponsored post, a memory post, or a research post.  We like to mix it up a little, but always share photos of Truffle and Brulee and hope you can visit our blog each day and leave with a smile on your face.

Have a great weekend!

Pee ess - We forgot to mention we do this 365 days a year.  We've never missed a day since our blog began 5.5 years ago.

Taxes or Cats?

Brulee and Truffle helping or hindering?

Since Mom Paula has a consulting business on top of her regular job, she spends hours and days completing her tax returns.  Somehow, Truffle and Brulee always know when she's doing the taxes and they get right in the middle of things.  Would you be able to complete your tax returns if these two lovely floofy kitties sat in front of your computer or would you give it up and give all of your attention to the cats?

All we know is Mom Paula is thankful for both a tax refund and for us!
