Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear finleybean.com, happy birthday to you!
ToAs of today, it has been exactly one year ago that I decided to start writing a blog about cats. It all started on finleythekitty.tumblr.com – still online, but I’ve put it on private, considering I don’t update it anymore. I wrote about how I so badly wanted a cat, and how I was trying to convince my parents to let me adopt one. I’d been busy trying to convince them for a few months already, but I decided I wanted to track my progress, so I did. The Convincing Series is what it all started with. After a few months of Tumblr, I decided I wanted a real blog, so I transferred to finleybean.wordpress.com, also still online, and as of September 2015, we were upgraded to finleybean.com.
It has been a great year, with ups and downs, and I’ve had to go back to posting once a week due to college, but that also means I get to put more time and effort in what I do post. I made an Instagram account, adopted Fin, opened an Etsy Store, and met all sorts of wonderful people. I learned a lot, and I do mean a LOT, about feline behaviour, nutrition and overall care, and I’m glad I can use my blog to share it with you.
To celebrate our blogiversary, Fin’s upcoming birthday, and our upcoming 10k on Instagram, we’ll be hosting a giveaway soon! It’ll most likely be somewhere in April, and of course, I’ll be posting about it on here, as well as on Instagram. It’ll just be a little something to say thank you to everyone 🙂
