WAFFLES TOO: Um, hi everyone. Waffles Too here.
We interrupt this regularly scheduled Waffles Wednesday to bring you an important DE TOUR.
The boss tole me to meet her in the GLOGIRLY DESIGN car for a special ops assign mint. I said, "but Boss, I don't think I like mints." She tole me to hurry up and turn on the flashy lights and everything.
You see there was a big blogosphere mergency. And it needed our help.
Many of you are already members of The Cat Blogosphere, the central news hub for the cat blogging community. It's where lots of us cat bloggers share news, post links to our daily blog posts and meet new friends.
Don't worry if you've been living under a rock and have never heard of it before. Anyone can join.
Well, you sorta have to be a cat. Or at least like them.
Just last week, fellow cat blogger Morgen Pittman, adopted The Cat Blogosphere and has been working hard to create a whole new website for it. When the Boss heard the news, she sprung into action with a new logo, website header, badges...even a Facebook Cover for the recently launched Facebook Page.
The Boss had a chance to talk with Morgen's lead-cat, Little Isis, in an exclusive Q&A interview.

KATIE: Welcome, Little Isis. So when did you kittiesjoin The Cat Blogosphere?
LITTLE ISIS: We've followed the CB since it started in 2006 and have always been an active supporter. The Cat Blogosphere is more than just a website, it's an active community of cat bloggers and we're proud to be part of that community.

KATIE: So Isis...there's a whole lot of kitties in your house. I don't know if I have enough toes to count. Can you tell us about your blog and your partners in crime?
LITTLE ISIS: Our blog is called Purchance To Dream and we started blogging in September 2006. When it started, there were 3 cats: Spooker, Daphne, and Chloe. Then along came me, and my brother Peter. For a while, our Daddy Mo (who is also known as NTM or "Not The Mama in the Cat Blogosphere) had a shop in Michigan, and he had a shop cat named Jazper. Then came Jack and Bella. So there were eight of us. But Jaz was happier as a shop cat, a loner who liked people but not other cats. Jaz found a new Forever Home in Michigan before the rest of us moved to Florida. Now there are the SEVEN of us in Orlando: Spooker, Daphne, Chloe, Peter, Little Isis, Jack, and Bella.
KATIE: What's the most important aspect of the CB to you?
LITTLE ISIS: The community. Our hope in doing a re-boot of The Cat Blogosphere website, with a new Managing Editor, template, and graphics, will help this community get news and information and guide it into the future. We have a new Facebook Page and Twitter account to help with the social media aspect of the site and to connect with as many cat lovers as possible. We realize that not everyone has a cat blog anymore, but we are still a cat loving community and hope to be the news hub for this community.
KATIE: This is a BIG job. Will you have a staff of minions?
LITTLE ISIS: The Cat Blogosphere has a great history of cat blogging reporters helping with news and posts, and we'll be starting this again soon. For now, as we tweak the final template and get into a new routine, it's going to be me as the Lead Reporter, with my Daddy Mo as the Managing Editor, and my iDaddy Eyad as our behind the scenes IT guy.
KATIE: So, Little Isis...any plans for the future you'd like to share?
LITTLE ISIS: Taking over the internet! Meowhahahaha!
KATIE: I thought we already had. ; )
