Ask Huffle Thursday

Caren and Cody asked me: I have a question. Four years ago blogging wasn't even popular yet.  What made you start blogging?

Well, it's all because of Queen Meeshka and my bestest friend Zimmie that I started blogging.  Mum used to subscribe to the Daily Puppy newspaper, and one day the featured dog was Meeshka, and there was a link to her blog in the story.  We read her blog and thought she was pretty awesome, and from there we found the Army of Four and loved them too.  I started blogging to get to know them better.

For a while I was too scared to leave any comments, and I didn't have any comments on my blog either, but then I got brave and Turbo was the first ever dog to comment here!  Since then I have met SO many new friends and mum and dad have even met some of my blog friends' people too!

This is just about the first photo of me that ever appeared on my blog.

That is pretty interesting, Huffle. Can I ask a qweshtun: what is the origin of your last name Mawson, but Teddy's is Westlife/

Meeshka is one good-looking dog (as far as dogs go)! What an interesting story. Praline got me into blogging.

Huffle you were my very first commenter I'll never forget it :-)

Sparkle said...

My human put me up to blogging in 2003 - I didn't have a choice! But since then I've become way more famous online than her. Which only goes to show.

The Island Cats said...

Well, we're sure glad you started blogging, Huffle!

Makropoulos said...

Pisi and Squeak think you were pretty handsome back then, too!

Prancer Pie said...

We should all tell what started us blogging! It would be so interesting. My mom and I were so moved by Sweet Praline and her mommy, that when she passed, we decided to do it! We are so glad we did!

Natalie said...

You're so pretty, Huffle! Cool story about how you started blogging. I didn't know you'd been at it for so long!

Suka said...

hey Huffle Mawson,

That is a pawsome story! I never thought of asking why an animal started blogging, so what an interesting question. I am so glad you found Meeshka and started blogging because if you never started blogging, I never would have met you! And you are one cat that has added sunshine to my life!

This was so interesting! You know what? I did almost the opposite! I found Max the Psychokitty and he made me laff and laff, so I started leaving lots of comments on his blog, and then I started visiting several other blogs of kitties who left comments at Max's but it was 2 or 3 YEARS before I convinced my Human that I needed a blog, too. I had to hurt her bad, but she finally agreed, MOL!

Our website started as a tribute to Nikita - and we were surprised that there were people out there who would actually read it.

I can't believe it's been that long, Huffs! I'm so glad you're my bestest friend!
