Ever since our post last Thursday which really helped us clarify some things, different things have been happening for the Woman and she is quite thankful for that. As she put it, she realized that mostly people Ask questions and then give. The Cat blogosphere gives and then asks questions! She thinks that is so great and wants to make that kind of community the kind she spends most of her time in.
Since then, she has found a few things that have really told her that she is on the right track. One thing that happened that was interesting, is a friend from Facebook (a fellow blogger, but not specifically a cat blogger) works in social media and she is loosing her job at the end of the month. The Woman said hey! Check up on me with Linked in–I have a contact that may be helpful. So they linked up together and then the Woman contacted her Social Media contact (her only one), Lena West.
Lena gave a FANTASTIC talk at Blogpaws on using social media and putting things out about how to think of a Social Media Strategy. The Woman was really impressed. Anyway, the Woman told Lena about her friend and rather than waiting to see if the friend came to her, Lena connected with her and talked about exactly what she did and the sorts of contacts she has that could be helpful. The Woman was like–LENA SO ROCKS. So we thought we’d give her a shout out today and say we’re really thankful for her and for people like her.
Cats always know don’t we? Good people find us.
Oh and as annoying as Ichiro is, thanks to him the Seattle Mariners are following me on Twitter…
That’s a great story – the pet blogging community IS the best community!
That is so pawsome! Pet bloggers ARE the best…and Ichiro is proving himself to be useful.
The CBers rock. Truly. So does your mom for thinking to hook up her friend…the Woman’s brain doesn’t work like that, i don’t think. Stuff occurs to her too late to be of any good…

One blogger we follow (not on the CB) had a post yesterday about being given an OK by her insurance co to have a expensive surgery. They had OK’ed the initial surgery, they OK the psychological referral she had to have, and then they finally OK’ed the final surgery. So she passed the psychological part, and had the initial surgery. IT so helped her and she was so happy. Then she got word that they had suddenly cancelled her second surgery. She was devasted, so she asked for help from her readers. People came out of the woodwork, and then an amazing thing happened. Her insurance co reconsidered and they are green lighting her permanent surgery, So there is incredible power in blogging and tweeting.

Yes, I agree with you that cat people are more kind and generous than most. That’s why they say you should beware folks who don’t like cats, I think.
Yay for your Mom and her Blogpaws contacts!
Great post. Pet bloggers are special.
Eric and Flynn says
That was great that your mum could help the other blogger by putting her in touch with her friend. The CB is wonderful.
The Crew says
You are so right, Chey. We cats know everything!
