I’ve been blogging for many years. I used to write a blog for authors. Since I’ve been writing the Klepto Cat Mysteries, my focus has been—you got it—cats. I’ve been blogging here at the Catscapades blog site since 2009. Over seven years.
People ask me, “How do you come up with something to write about every single day?” Well, I listen to my cats. I watch them. I pay attention to other cats—in the neighborhood as well as in my friends’ homes. I read about cats, visit other blog sites related to cats, and do a lot of cat research.
On top of that, I’m curious. If a question appears in my head, I’m typically inspired to find
the answer. Wouldn’t you like to know more about the mechanics of the purr sound cats make? What about feeding a cat? There are many choices of cat nutrition out there. What’s best for your cat? What is it about a cat that endears us to them? For some, at least, it sure isn’t the charming furry exterior of the cat because there are people who adore the naked ones—the Sphinx, for example. Oh yes, there are so many, many topics to cover when writing about cats.
Sometimes it’s my photographs that inspire a blog topic—Lily getting a drink out of the faucet, for example, Sophie shredding a receipt or (heaven forbid) a check, or a cat peering out through a window somewhere in the neighborhood.
But I can always use your help. If you’re interested in keeping this blog going, send me your blog or story ideas. Leave them here as a comment or email me at PLFry620@yahoo.com
