2011 Goals Achieved (Sort of)

For those of you who know me personally, it may not come as a surprise that my motto is “plan your work and work your plan.”  I have always functioned best when I have goals and timelines to work toward.

Last year, my friends Amy Burkert of and Edie Jarolim of helped me plan with the Pet Blogger Challenge.  They posed a series of questions for each participant to answer, and I found it very helpful to work with a group of people were all “in the same boat." Since I’d started my blog on December 31 of the previous year, the Pet Blogger Challenge was a great time for me to sit down and reflect on where I’d been and where I wanted to go in the coming year.

Amy and Edie are issuing the Pet Blogger Challenge again this year, and I hope you will join us. There will be two sets of questions this year – one for bloggers who participated last year and one for new bloggers. You can find the list of questions at either or  Write a blog post on January 10 and add your link to the Linky List – it’s that easy!

In the meantime, I will be taking a few days off to enjoy the holidays. I will be back next week to wrap up the year, so until then – I hope you have Happy/Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Yule or whatever secular/religious holiday you choose to celebrate!  


  1. You are an inspiration to all of us dear friend. Merry Christmas to you too,

  2. We're looking forward to your post in the Pet Blogger Challenge, Vicki!
