Do Not Stop Blogging.

There are a lot of feelings being expressed about the Mr. Litterbox contest, which started off as a fun, creative thing. I enjoyed creating Max's entry and seeing how others showed off their cats.

From what I'm reading today, the outcome of this has prompted some bloggers to consider shutting down their blogs. I know, without a doubt, I speak for all of us when I say, NO ONE wants that to happen. OK, if you're embarassed, we understand. If you're disgusted about this, we understand. If you're ashamed, we understand. But, come on people, we all make mistakes and can move on. Maybe this is a lesson for the next blogger brave enough to run a contest -- 1 cat, 1 vote.

I, for one, would hate to see anyone stop blogging over this. We're all creative catlovers, who enjoy expressing ourselves in this way and I think everyone is mature enough to be able to put this behind them and continue. It would be a shame to lose some of our best loved, most creative blogs.

Bravo!! I agree completely. I think we will all be OK but we needed a reality reminder. I truly hope no one stops because I need everyone's special creativity to get me through the day.

Hi Crew!
Thanks for stopping by and saying your nice words!
We're just taking a break.
We were thinking of it before the "unfortunate events" happened. Mom spends too much of her day cruising cat blogs & not enough doing other things.
XXXOOO

We are having fun. If you like us, then read our blog. If not, move on.

Let's have fun everyone, put your egos away. We don't think any more or less based upon a contest.

So nicely said. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice words, I needed it. I've been a sad and depressed all day. Tara

Max,
Mu Shue is starting a hug tag. Daisy hugged me, now I'm hugging you. Pass on a hug to four cats.

Well said, Crew's Mom. For anyone of them to quit because of this will add to the ugliness of this mess. The blogosphere will be a much poorer place without them. I feel that they should forgive themselves, learn the lesson(s) being taught, and blog on.

Hi Crew! We are going around this weekend letting all the blogs we visit know how much we appreciate them. We have always loved your blog. George and Max, you are such gentlemencats. George you have taught us much about art (a passion we share), and Max your brilliance always shines through. Misty is of course adorable and we have enjoyed so much watching her grow. And of course there is my special Tipper. You know how special I think you are. Thank you for all the laughs and smiles you have given us, and we can't wait for more. Lots of hugs and purrs to you all!!

Nicely said, Charlotte. Not sure how the rumor that I was quitting started...never was part of my plan. Those TABLOIDS!

Bru-ha-has like this should only cause you to take stock and calibrate your own path to your vision. Dwelling on it will rot your brain and quitting over it would just be disappointing.

Thanks for your thoughts and inspired words!
