Happy First Anniversary Blog!!!

Happy First Anniversary Blog!!!

Hello Everyone!!

Last year this time I published my very first blog post. Yep! It's been a whole year already. Yay!

I'm not going to make this a long post about what I've learnt in my first year of blogging. I think the internet is full of those already.

You would think  that after I read all the posts on what not to do that I will not make the same mistakes. Nope! I went ahead and made the exact same mistakes.

Not having my own domain, not having a clear niche, writing weird topics no one searches for, zero Seo, no clear plan, blah blah blah.
 
A million mistakes yes, but I had successes too. I also made a ton of online friends and furiends (doggies). For a loner and introvert, I surprised myself. Gosh! I surprised myself a lot in this blogging year.

Writing in different characters was not my intention at the start. It just happened! People liked it for some reason and I changed the blog name to Life and Dog Stuff after that. It was just Life and Stuff.

I thought about splitting up the two niches into different blogs a few times because the blog's followers are probably split. I'm not really sure. I always say, "It's my blog and I can do whatever I want to". I mean our blog!

My personality is splattered all over these pages and combined with my Buff and Fluff. These are our stories, our life. So splitting it would have broken my heart.

I'm happy with what I've done with it. It's my creation. For the first time in my life I created something that I'm proud of. I've poured my heart out onto these pages. Something I was never capable of doing.

I'm planning on creating a spin off blog soon that will be more niche, structured and optimized for search traffic. Of course Buff and Fluff will join me over there too.

Don't worry, this one will still be here with new weekly blog posts. We only get social media traffic on here. Damn you evil Google bots!

Lots of work ahead. It's still in research phase. I'm just putting it out there in the universe so long.

I can get a bit lazy sometimes though lol, but it's a goal of mine to reach page one of Google for something I've written. #BlogGoals. Wish me luck! Even if I have to kidnap a Google bot and force them to rank me, I will! Grrr!

Sorry, Fluffy took over just now. She hates those Google bots. Run bots, run!

I have some more good news to share. We've recently been nominated for our third blog award! Guess that means we're doing something right.

Thank you Kirstie from the Enlightenment for Schmucks for nominating us for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Our second sunshine award this year! I'll do a separate post on that once I'm done doing the blog updates. I'm forever updating!

Please check out her award blog post so long Here. Kirstie and Trina's writing is beautiful and inspirational. It was such a pleasure to have met a pair of like minded people like them on the blogosphere.

Happy First Anniversary Blog! Here's to surviving a full year. Almost giving up and then turning it around again. It was not easy, but it was loads of fun. That's all that matters.

A Big Thank You to those who have read our words and laughed at our pictures. For following, sharing, commenting and supporting us through our journey. Your support keeps our little blog alive. I appreciate it more than you know.  

Lots of love to you all from Buffy, Fluffy and Renza! ♥♥♥
Until next time
Goodbye

  1. Happy Blogiversary! Yours is one of the most unique, entertaining, heartwarming, and informative blogs I've ever come across - not an easy set of traits to pull off in one place. I'm so happy to have met you along with the Bluff and the Fluff. Thank you for all you do for pet owners everywhere!

    1. Wow Kirstie! I just got a little teary eyed when I read your comment. It means so much to me that someone thinks that of our blog. Best compliment ever! Thank you! I'm just having fun with it. As soon as something stops being fun and I can't laugh at my own stories anymore then I'm in trouble. Still laughing so that means the blog will be fine. :-)
