Monday Mentions: Writer-icity & Pet-astic Links & CHEW on THIS!

I love that picture! Used it as the header for my Puppies About.com Facebook Page which…has GONE AWAY! (or it will, shortly). Oh, the puppies.about.com site isn’t going anywhere, but the About.com powers that be have made a few changes. I’m no longer the Puppies Guide. Now I’m the Puppies EXPERT (can you see my virtual tail wagging?!). In addition, since guides/experts also often have our own platforms and social media sites, we are now encouraged to use THOSE to continue sharing our content–in my case, that’s lots of puppy-licious info I’ll be sharing regularly on my various outlets. So I hope y’all will join me–and if you previously “liked” my puppies site on facebook, just wag on over to the new hook up:

Of course, I also hope you’ll subscribe to my Pet Peeves quarterly newsletter (gave away over 20 books with the last issue…just saying 🙂 ) And you can always subscribe to this blog…see the link below to manage your subscription, too. Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Check out the THRILLERFEST video at the bottom, too.  For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.

    • Dog in the pool could be my Magic. He loves WADING but is scared of water over his head, LOL! Thanks for “comment-testing” the blog, I think my settings have been fixed.
