Happy Anniversary!

We've been so busy at Cat Tale Blog Central, we totally forgot our very own anniversary!  Our very first posting came out on July 20, 2011, covering the rescue of the Poetry Cats.  Since then, we have posted, including this posting, 316 stories for our blog readers to enjoy.  We have had over 85,000 page hits since the blogs inception, with 8,834 page hits just last week! 

Who won the "Roar Off" competition again?
Some of the more memorial blog posts were the lions "Roar Off Competitions," the "Splish Splash" (original) video, Cerella's scream video featured in "Cougar Call", and the "Out of the Mouth of Babes" posting.  Our second most popular blog posting was the unveiling of the new  video "Swimming with Tigers" with 1,543 hits.  Our most popular blog posting, which still receives about two or more page hits per day, was "A Tale of Many Tails!"  This story so far, has received 1,933 hits and climbing!

We have other milestones we'd like to recognize -- did you know that we have 4,998 "likes" on Facebook?  We are just two "likes" away from the major 5,000 "likes" milestone mark!  We hope by the end of this day we will have 5,000 Facebook "likes"!

Our Twitter is also off to a great start -- so far we have over 820+ followers, adding about 100 or more followers per month!  If you are not following us on Twitter, then you are missing out on news not posted to our Facebook page or this blog.

Our Pinterest following is also growing -- if you like to see some unusual pictures, some not found on our blog, Facebook, or Twitter, then you'll want to join us in the Pinterest Community!

We have to admit, when we first started the blog, we'd get excited if 25-50 people read the posting.  Today we average about 150 readers per posting and that number is growing -- some days have more readers (like when we unveil a fabulous new video) and other days we have less readers (holiday postings).  We are just thrilled that you decided to join us either on a regular or semi-regular basis so you can keep up with the In-Sync happenings!  Thank you for your support!

We want the blog's second year to be even better than the first, so if you have any questions or story ideas, we'd love to hear from you!  You can mail your questions, comments, or ideas to our email account HERE.  We'd love to hear from you, so don't be shy--just drop us a line from time to time!
