Thank you Eastside Cats

Given by Eastside Cats
and we thank them for the nomination of  Blogger Recognition Award it is an 
honor to receive it from them....

There are rules:

-Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
-Write a post to show your award.
-Give a brief story of how your blog started.

I wrote this poem for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday but it details how we came to be

imagine when I was six I thought my life could get no better. 
I was queen of the house which is all that matter.
Mom had a friend who told her she was a blogger
to which mom replied a W H A Ter?
She gave mom her addy, into the WWW she did roam.
She wondered if here we could find a home.  
She looked and she read and she ponder each blog. 
She even became a stalker of one or two
She said Madi ...this I think we can do
After a few icky attempts, with all the kinks ironed out
Just a few months after I was seven
late in the evening she pressed publish.
Live we went on the WWW and hoped what we said was not rubbish.
Mom declared for all to hear I am an idiot 
I should have tried this eons ago!
We never looked back new friends we found.
Here we are eight years later, two senior ladies full of chatter
and mad as hatters.

Our two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
1. Have fun....laugh at yourself and write from your heart without hesitation
2. Join in activities/events other bloggers are having.  It will help you step out of your comfort zone
you never believe all the friends you will make and things you will learn.

Our very first blog post was on June 14.   I did not have any digital photos of Madi, nor did I know how to download them. Thirteen days later I was
a picture snapping fool
