Hi everyone, Katie here.
Oh. My. Cod. Glogirly and I are finalists in the BlogPaws-PetSmart Build a Business Blog Contest! The prize? A chance to work with PetSmart on turning our blog into a legitimate business! How cool is that!!!
Glogirly would also get to attend the BlogPaws Conference in Salt Lake City this June. I could go too, but I'm not much of a traveler. Instead she could bring a life size cut out of me. Katie on a stick. We entered the contest a couple of weeks ago and had to tell them in just a few words how awesome we are and why they should pick us. There are TEN finalists and there will be TWO winners. The other finalists are SUPER talented and have great blogs. We are so honored to be in the finals. When we got the news we could barely breathe.
There are even ::gasp:: DOGS!
So now comes the hard part. We have about ten days to submit a 2-minute video elaborating on all the stuff we wrote on our initial application. We wish we could just send them a link to Real Housecats or a case of salmon, but that's not going to fly. They want to see US. Glogirly is going to be super mad when I hiss at the camera. She's considering using a mustache on a stick so that we BOTH are wearing our girly-staches.
We need your help. We'd like to know what your favorite part of our blog is. We're not fishing for compliments. (salmon, maybe.) We just know it would help us alot to understand what you enjoy when you're here as we come up with our video submission concept.
Thank you SOOOOOOOOO much! You are the best and we love you! (whoa! ...that's a little mushy for me)
Pee S: Don't worry, this isn't going to slow the production of Real Housecats one bit!
Pee Pee S: We've almost got a full cast for the next Episode of Real Housecats! But there's still a little time to send your stuff to us! Click HERE for instructions.
Pee Pee Pee S: If you're just coming out from under that rock, click HERE to watch the latest episode of Real Housecats.

We love the words....your sense of humor and your charm. Girl, as they say, you can sell snow to the Eskimos! purrr....meow!
Paws crossed that you are one of the winners - it goes without saying that being a finalist is totally deserved! One of my favorite things about the blog is the visuals, Katie - your human has so much talent in that regard. I am not sure how you would verbalize that, but there has to be some way to explain that your awesomely hip and cool graphics and videos are a big element of your present and future success.ReplyDelete
How excitng! We love the general creativity of the blog! And your sense of humor!ReplyDelete
That is awesome to be a finalist. We really hope you win! You blog is so sprrfessional already! The commenters before me have already said what we like about your blog. Wonderful graphics and videos, wittiness, always something new going on, really EVERYTHING!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations and we, too, hope you are one of the two winners.ReplyDelete
Our human's been under a rock, so we just watched the episode. We weren't sure what to expect, but it was very well put together -- kudos to your human, Katie, and of course to you. :-)
OMG - that is so awesome that Pet Smart is going to team up with you. Congratulations to you and mom Katie.. I don't have just one favorite part to your bloggy because we like you writing style and pictures. Your pictures are FANTASTIC!ReplyDelete

Concats! What I like best? Katie, of course! What I found unique and different when I first found your blog was the graphics like Katie pooping into pictures next to shampoo bottles or whatever the blog was about. And, yes, I like Katie's wit. But you know what first caught my attention? That Katie resembled me in both looks and character. It showed me how good my blog could be if TW was creative. HAH! Good luck. I know you're video will knock 'em dead. I hope we'll get to see if.ReplyDelete
Our favorite part of your blog is your creativity, sense of style, sense of humor...love that you involve all of us kitties and give us a chance to pawticipate!ReplyDelete
Oh yeah...and the mosh pit was just too fabulous for meows!
Purring for a win,
Cory and family
Huge concats! Your visuals are strong. Focus on your brand. Core values. What do you ultimately want? I'll email you privately for added suggestions.ReplyDelete
Congratulations ! Unfortunately it's the first time I visit your blog so it would be difficult for me to say what I like, but I already liked what I saw today !ReplyDelete
What do we like the best? Katie, we love your snarky relationship you have with your peeps, and how, underneath it all, we can tell you love 'em to bits.ReplyDelete
Oh, and it has been INSANELY exciting around here...too busy to do a submittal for RC--check out Mom's post this Sunday!

Woo hoo!! Congratulations! We love your humor and creativity. :)ReplyDelete
WAYHEY!!!!! :D So exciting and me and Austin (errr Austin and I) are soooo pleased.ReplyDelete
Now to business. You write brilliantly. Loved your adoption story, also as Trish said, Katie is snarky and witty and your relationship is not too lovey dovey, but just enough lol. However, the visuals have so much going for them, whether just photos or the videos. They have wit and rhythm and very original. Go with that. I would :)
If we can do anything to help, give us a shout ok? xox
Concatulations and we wish you good luck!ReplyDelete
