When I started blogging on January 18, 2010, the idea of writing 500 posts seemed daunting but with the support of all of my readers, I made it! I truly look forward to reading your informative, humorous, and sensitive posts everyday and I appreciate that you give me the chance to brighten your days and nights in return!
For those who know me well, you are aware that the film, Julie and Julia, inspired me to start blogging and because of both of these women I began writing about my pets, my pet sitting clients, and in return, I gained hundreds of Blogville friends!
It has been wonderful getting to know you and your pets for the past 2 years and 7 months and I look forward to learning more about you in years to come!
In closing, I will leave you with my first post....
I was inspired to start a blog many months ago after watching Julie and Julia at the theater; in fact, I turned to my fiance' and fellow pet sitting partner, Amos, and announced that I was going to start a pet sitting blog that would eventually make me as well-known as Julia Child and Julie Powell.
Of course it would be wonderful to reap financial benefits from blogging about pets but a greater benefit would be to attract an audience of animal lovers who need a break from their busy lives each day.
Ever since I walked away from 16 years of teaching in the summer of 2006 in order to focus on my business, Teacher's Pet Sitting Service, I've been quite entertained by both the pets and their owners and I feel I have enough wonderful stories to last a lifetime so I will write them down, one day at a time, and I hope you will enjoy them all.
Thanks for reading,
