A Thanks and Celebration of Four Years of Blogging!

I debated whether to make a thing out of April 22nd or not – the date I published my first post four years ago.  What is there –  after all – to say about it?  That I’m surprised to still be at it today?  Well yes, there is that!

But as I considered further – I thought it would be a great time to thank those  – both human and feline – who inspired my adventure in blogging.

I’ll start with my brother John who blogs here about food and entertainment. I’d written some cat stories a few years ago but wasn’t sure how to proceed with my newfound hobby.  It was he who suggested I start a blog and to show me the possibilities recommended the blog of a man named Pete.

It was with a bit of fear and trepidation that I released my first post four years ago.  Thanks to both of you who not only left me tips on that first story in 2016 but for continuing to provide your blogging support today!

Finally – and  perhaps most importantly – are the cats who by their good looks and charming antics continue to fuel the stories that form the backbone of Cats and Trails and Garden Tales.

And lest I forget – thanks to my husband – my faithful reader and willing participant in my life and stories.  And of course to all of you who take the time to drop by and visit. We so appreciate it!  🙂

  1. Congratulations on your four years, Susanne. I have very much enjoyed spending them with you and your husband on your trips and vacations, and in the company of your cats. 🙂
    Best wishes as always, Pete.

  2. Congratulations on 4 years! That’s fantastic! Here is to another 4!

  3. Wow! Four years of blogging! That’s definitely something to celebrate 😊 Happy Earth day and Happy Blogiversary 🎉

  4. Well done. It appears we started at about the same time and met each other early on. I have so enjoyed all your pictures of the Pacific Northwest. I live in Connecticut, but was in Oregon for 50 years, so the photos touch my heart. And of course I have adopted your cats since my husband’s allergies prevent me from having my own.

    • Aw thank you so much! I’m happy to have connected with you and that we share a love of the Northwest – and my cats! 🙂

  5. Yay! Happy 4 year anniversary of blogging! I know I have enjoyed getting go “know” you and Tiger and Benji over these past years. And a shout out to your husband for being your faithful reader and supporter 😀🎂🍦☕️🐱🐼

  6. Blogging is a great way to be creative, share stories, and of course, show of your two very photogenic partners Tiger and Benji! Love the travel adventures as well!
