Coolio Award!

Given by Pets Overload
Pets Overload kindly nominated us for a Blogger Recognition Award!

There are rules:

-Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
-Write a post to show your award.
-Give a brief story of how your blog started.
-Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
-Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
-Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post that you created.

This is my first blogger award!  Thank you, Pets Overload!

Eastside Cats began with emails sent to family and friends, telling amusing stories about Angel and Chuck, The 'O' Cats, adoption events, other people's cats, etc.  My very first email was "Ghost Cat".  I then stumbled upon a few cat blogs by accident, and realized that I needed to do it too!

Since I consider myself a 'new' blogger still, the only 'learned lessons' I could mention to newer folks is: keep it short, and use the best photos you can.  And ALWAYS preview your post before sending it out.  My 'voice' for Eastside Cats is as if I were simply talking to you, the reader.

Pets Overload has nominated many of my favorite blogs, so I won't duplicate those efforts.  But I love you all, and thank each one of you for sharing your particular vision with me, and the interwebs.  I learn something new every day! Every blog on my "Favorite Blogs" list is just that: a favorite!  If I didn't include you on today's list, it's because I ran out of room, and I already went over the fifteen blog limit!
