It is with incredible reluctance that I am posting to tell you Moggipurrs will cease to exist as an active, updated blog from this point forward. The site will still be here, so people can access the content, but I won’t be writing new posts. I didn’t want to just “disappear” from the blogosphere without saying a proper “so-long.”
I say this move is “with reluctance” because it has been a wonderful experience learning about the blogging world, creating a blog site, wrestling with the technology (and the inherent joy when comprehension dawned), and I will miss hearing from my incredible followers/friends who have come to enjoy the antics of Sophie the Cat and Ollie the Dog. I think it is amazing we made it up to 260 followers! Thank you ALL.
We’ve had an incredible two-year run, which is the average time for blogs to hang around — although some of you blow that statistic right out of the water and have been doing this for years. Nevertheless, I have said most everything I ever wanted to say about cats and even repeated it a time or two. I have also learned about the discipline of writing regularly and the magic of inspiration when you think you can’t come up with one more thing to say!
My writing interests have expanded in these two years and I now contribute a piece every month to HeartandSoulezine on different metaphysical topics. I am hopeful many of you will join me there and read about whatever spiritual conundrum I am wrestling with that month. It will be interesting to explore this new medium for my writing. I might even give myself permission to write a “title” at the top of my compositions, and not worry about whether it is a “headline.” (I do worry about these things. Comma placement, too, keeps me awake at night.)
Before we go, please know that I think you are all incredibly creative people from whom I have learned much and my life has been immensely enriched for having “met” you online. You may still see me when I comment on your blogs — I will check in with Kitties Blue, Sammy, Summer, Cinco and Manna, Carl, Wally, Ernie, Zoey, Austin, the Zee and Zoey Gang, Glogirly, and too many more to list here. You see, you’ve become a delightful part of my life, and I’m not willing to let go of you just yet.
To close up a few loose ends from the December posts: We moved and have adjusted to the new downstairs apartment. I am inordinately pleased with not having to fight the stairs every time I go out. The dog and cat still merely tolerate each other, but I feel exceedingly blessed by my good fortune to have found these sweet animals and made them a part of my life. I also want to mention that I am extremely blessed with some great friends who never blinked an eye when they saw the work that lay ahead. Those very same friends also helped me unpack boxes, hang pictures, organize cabinets, and so much more. All of you have my heartfelt and never-ending thanks.
This wouldn’t be a Moggiepurrs post without photos, so in closing, I will show you the last few photos in my camera that might have been part of a future post if we had not closed down. Please don’t be strangers — you can still comment at anytime and I will see it and try to respond.
With fondness for all, I am bloggingly yours.
Beverly, aka Moggiepurrs (Sophie and Ollie, too)
