Announcements Plus My Blogging Addiction

I'm back! On Blogger that is... the downside is that when I moved to WP, I was able to transfer my feed. Moving back, I wasn't as lucky this time to save the feed. I'd like to invite you to re-subscribe. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I didn't transfer the posts from WordPress over here, so I may be re-posting some of them here since they did take some time to write and what-not. I hate to be a flip-flopper, but I think I'm pretty glad to be back to Blogger. I didn't dislike WordPress completely, I just really love Blogger.

So anyways, there is one announcement. The other announcement is that I have a blogging addiction! It is so much fun to visit new blogs, make new friends, learn new things, and write articles and share stories! Some of you may find yourselves in the same boat, and I don't think it's a bad boat to be in. So what did I decide to do? Well, create another blog - what else?

Why? Am I crazy? Maybe... the thought of another blog has been in the back of my head for awhile now but I just never could come up with an idea that I really liked. I thought about making a mom blog, but that idea just wasn't really doing it for me. 
About a week ago, I came up with an idea for another mostly animal-related blog. I was having Blogger withdrawal and decided to create another Blogger blog with my new idea. My new blog is called Just So Squeeable and the posts are mostly going to be squee-worthy pictures or videos. That way I can concentrate my writing skills over here at Pawsitively Pets. My plan is to eventually be able to have people submit their own cute photos to share on the site. 


I didn't want to emerge myself into a bunch of different social media sites with the new blog, so I decided to try out a new idea with social media - a Google+ Community. I also made a pretty nifty little newsletter with MailChimp that is set to deliver 3 times a week, since I may eventually post more than once a day I don't want to spam anyone's inbox. 

So anyways, there is my other announcement. I'd like to invite you to come by Squeeable.com and have some nice squee's. Hope you enjoy! Thanks everyone!

  1. I started out with WP and there were just too many things I didn't like about it. Blogger tends to work better for me (just my personal preference.) Another blog?! I admire your ambition :-)

    1. Thanks Sue, the other blog shouldn't be hard to manage since I won't be writing much with it.

    1. It seemed really slow for me, not just the site but just trying to get posts together. Took forever to get my pictures together and everything.

  5. Woof! Woof! WHY? your WP blog was great and you just have to give it sometime. Your site was not lost in our feed which means that whatever you did it works. For sure Blogger is very happy that you are back. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. Hey Ann! Hated to see you leave WP but you have to go with what your most comfy with. I've flip-flopped several times and am considering moving my "smaller/newer" blog back to Blogger just to keep up my Blogger skills as well. Either way, you didn't get rid of me. Guess I'll have to add your NEW blog to my Bloglovin' also! Shew!! Blogger addiction is awesome, isn't it! Titan sends Shiner kisses! ;)

    1. I am glad to hear that Bren - thank you so much. It seems as though everyone has their own preferences. I do like Wordpress, but I think that I like Blogger much better. I love to "design" stuff and I feel like I can do that a little better on Blogger.

  12. I was wondering about your G+ comment that you wouldn't be using the new Blogger commenting system...yet. Like why the heck would you need Blogger comments on WP? (Now I know. ;) Best luck with the new blog! I made a second "pet" blog once, but I never posted to it. Now it's my "test" blog. Pretty handy, actually.

    1. Also, just so you're aware, your "new" feed is showing up just fine in my Feedly and blog roll. I didn't need to resubscribe.

    2. Thanks for letting me know Elizabeth. Idk how the 2nd blog will go... we'll see! I am not using those G+ comments because you can't comment if you don't have it. Maybe if they fix that problem.

  13. Welcome back to Blogger. And congratulations on having the tenacity to take on another blog. Good for you.

  14. What fun! I have a personal blog with Blogger and it truly is easy to use. There are features I love. But my work blog is a paid WP blog and I LOVE it. It's not the freebie, which I've tried and it frustrates me. Grr. Glad to see you're where you love to be! I (finally!) added you to my blogroll.

  17. We started out with WP and don't know anything else. The one time the mom tried to use Blogger, she didn't like it...but that's because she didn't really know it. We're gonna go check out your new blog. It sounds like it's gonna be great!

    1. Thanks Jessica - am going to be experimenting with a G+ community with it rather than the typical Facebook thing.

  19. I'm on blogger and find it's fine for me. (But then, i've never tried WP so have nothing to compare to.) The only thing that bugs me about blogger is that I wish there was a simple "prove you are human" check box to fight spam! I got rid of the captcha thing (I hate that thing!) but now I get so much spam. oy.

    Love the name of the new blog. I've got some very sqeeeable stuff on my blog today. :)
