To BLOG or NOT to BLOG...

OK my furends....   IF you did NOT see our furend MANGO's Post from Yesterday... I just think you have your head in the Kibble KAN!!  GET it OUT and go READ his WORDS OF WISDOM..   You can click      HERE      to   "HOP" over and read it.

He posed the question..   To BLOG or NOT to Blog..   Whether tis better to BLOG or to Twitter and Facebook.      WELL I would like to say that it was one of the FINEST POSTS EVER Written.    Mango managed to SAY IT LIKE IT IS.    TO Cover all the Blogging BASES, as it were.   He is one THOUGHTFUL FELLA fur SURE.    

What does BLOGGING Mean to YOU???   WHY do you DO IT????   What do YOU get outta YOUR Blog... ?????     What do YOU get outta OTHER Blogs????  

I don't do the FB and TWITTER and stuffs...    I (Frankie Furter) am a BLOGGER and TOTALLY LOYAL to the CONCEPT.     In FAIRNESS... I actually DID try FB for 2 weeks... I just did not feel the LOVE... it was NOT fur ME..   BUTT I know some of you LOVE those alternative methods of puttin your thoughts out there fur others.   I'm NOT puttin You down... I am just sayin that BLOGGING is FUR ME. 
        I have been blogging since Oct. 2008 and have loved every single second of it.        I ADORE and REVERE my FOLLOWERS...  that would be YOU !!!    I admire and respect the blogs that I Follow.      Heck.... THIS is WHERE and HOW I (Frankie Furter) met my BRIDES. 
        I WORRY about my FURENDS when they... disappear from Blogville.  
And speakin of Blogville...  What a Wonderful place it IS..   and YES folks...  Blogville DOES exist.  At least fur ME it does.   Blogville is where EVERYBUDDY is WANTED and WELCOME and LOVED fur WHO they ARE.    We do not discriminate...  when WE say EVERYBUDDY We MEAN EVERYBUDDY.....   We don't care if you MEOW or SQUAWK or Bark..or have Shells or Fur or even FEATHERS or FINS.     YOU are IMPAWTANT and ACCEPTED here.   
         I will take my MEMORIES of Blogville and its RESIDENTS (THOSE would be YOU) to the Bridge with me.  
     THANK YOU MANGO fur puttin up that wonderful post.   It REAFFIRMS my belief that BLOGGING is BEAUTIFUL.

Hi Frankie, this post has so made my day, I've been over to Mango's blog he is so right. I do FB and Twitter but blogging is my number one. The friends I have made well need I say more. The only thing is blogging does take time and I hate it when we can't go visting all the blogs I follow but its just not possable, remember me and Tess had to fight our corner after Christmas to keep blogging, so pleased we still are, we just aren't on the laptop so much:(
Have a good week
See yea George xxx
PS we will be joining in with as many olympic games as possable :)looking forward to the great avent :0

Dexter said...

Amen to that, little legless fur brother. Blogging rocks for sure. Nothing like it.


P.S. Your video didn't play for me. Boo hoo.

Well said everyone! Deccy x

I totally agree, Frankie. Our mom takes care of a twitter and 2 Facebook accounts (one is for work and one is for family)... while she enjoys the other means of social media, she only writes little tiny sentences, trying to be funny in 145 characters or less, and we find it unimpressive.

Whereas here we can have lots of space to run around with our ideas... we don't feel chained up.... perhaps that is what it is... Blogville is a big yard, with no fences, but is perfectly safe for everyone.

Wow, I'm pretty good without my morning treat.

Very well said! Mango's post was great and right to the point! We love to blog and all our blogging friends and yes, we do it for us!

WFT Nobby said...

We loved Mango's post and this post too, and all the great comments. We hate a world that wants to limit a thought to 140 characters and a reaction to 'like' or not.
Thank you Frankie, you are a hero.
Toodle pip!

Hi Frankie - we saw the Mango's post yesterday and it did indeed rock! We have been rather listless in the blogging arena in the last year and we're gonna put more pressure on Mum to get crackin - even making a lil post more frequently! Blogging is definitely far more personal and up close with da buddies, who we love. Thanks for re-iterating what the Mango woofed; greatest alltime post ever!

WE LOVE blogville too Frankie. We do FB and Twitter (kinda) but mostly it is just an upload of our blog post to them. We thinks blogging is the best.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Well said! Well said, Frankie and Ernie!
I'm 100% with you, blogging is beautiful!

Millie and Walter said...

I love being part of the blogging world. I might not blog every day, but when I think I have something to share I let everyone know. Yours is one of the first blogs I look for every morning. Thanks for being there, but don't feel any pressure to do it every day ;-)


Murphy said...

We think blogging is the "main thing" but use FB to do quick updates. The blog posts have much more substance to them fur sure. On another note, we are hoping that you give some direction to us newbies as to how we do the actual hosting of Olympic events. Will the "athletes" just send us a pic to post on our event? That way we can have a nice post of each event? Also, maybe it might be a nice idea to present the gold, silver and bronze medals to the athlete that participates in the most events, and another award for all athletes? That might help increase participation?

Your friends,

Murphy & Stanley

Well said, Frankie!

Molly the Airedale said...

We couldn't agree with you more, Frankie! We are on fb and it's just not the same. Our hearts are true to our blogging community.
We can't view your video. It's sayin' to come back later. grrrrrrrrrr

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Frankie, You hit the squirrel right on the head my pal. I did see The Mango's post, I mean I think its some sort of crime if you don't follow the big guy anyway. The post was very well said and I agree with all of it and with you. Mommy does do FB, but only cause she is kind of a game nut and she can play games on there and also keep up with nieces and nephews and such. There is nothing like blogging. Where else could you pour out your heart to people that don't even know you and get such love back. Blogging is like squirrel soup for the soul. Mommy has problems sometimes with saddies and blogging has brought her back so many times I can't even count. We love blogging and without it, we wouldn't have pals like you Frankie and Ernie and that just wouldn't be right.

Loveys Sasha

p.s. I couldn't watch the video so I went back and watched you and Ernie fighting over the squeaky basketball and that made me happy all over again

sprinkles said...

I do have a fb account but really only use it to play games. I rarely use it as a forum to discuss my thoughts or anything. I do like it as I'm able to catch up with friends I rarely see, by reading their posts.

I much prefer blogging though. My bloggy furiends are so much nice than my IRL furiends. They've been there for me at times when my IRL furiends weren't, such as when my dad died. Some of my IRL furiends have never even acknowledged his passing.

My Mind's Eye said...

Frankie once again we know why you are Mayor of Blogville!! You are quite the spokes-Doxie!!

Mom and I ONLY BLOG, and we will always ONLY BLOG. Mom has never done FB. Thank goodnessshe doesn't tweet either. If she did I might have to eat her. MOL Blogging is such fun and full of so many special friends.

Well said buddy heading to Mango's and yay for Max the Quilt Cat hosting an event.
Hugs your BFFF

Goog one Frankie!!!!! We don't FB, tweeter, not even do texting and hardly use the cell phone, unless we need mom or dad. Blogging is a blast, were else can you get such neat stuff about the animal world and have mom and dad envolved to type fer us. Only thing we can't get is we must be doing something wrong,we get very few comments, or even just vists. Is it we have not been on board long enough, or as dad says, guess we are just boring?

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We love Blogging! Though SHE has a FB account, it's rarely used and there's been no desire to Twitter. But blogging is the best. There is such a community, such sharing...not just the 'I'm doing this' attitude of the others.

Keep blogging.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Smile With Your Tail said...

Mango makes a good point!

we would never leave blogging, but Mum is struggling to get on the laptop as much as she wants!!


STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Mr Frankie, you have said it so well. When we first started to read your post, and then saw, 'To blog or not to blog' mum's heart went boom boom boom, cause she thought Mango Momma was going to stop blogging! Pheeeeew! That was not so!

We agree totally with all you have said. We LOVE our blogging friends and all that this community means to us. We feel LOVED and RESPECTED. We just wish we had more time to visit and comment on everybuddy that visits us but sometimes we cant.

Thanks Mr Frankie, Little Ernie and your special mum and dad. Families like yours and Mango Momma's (and so many others) are what keep our blogging community alive. Hugs to all cause mum is feeling 'full of love'. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

You and Mango hit it right on da nose. Me don't do da FB ting either. And me is not a bird so me don't tweet. But all my best furiends are in Blogville. I read da posts everyday even though I can't always comment. I only wish I could do more postees myself....but sometimes life gets in da way when your family is fighting serious illness and also your pawrents decide to remodel da house. But one day tings will settle down again.

We luvs you, Fwankie!

Lorenza said...

Oh, yeah!
I really prefer blogging.
It is true... sometimes there are not enough time to post, to visit, to comment... but sure Blogville is the best thing ever!
FB and Twitter.... not for me either!
Happy Saturday!
Kisses and hugs

GOOSE said...

For me, Goose, I prefur blogging. Although my MOM does do the FB thing, not so much since I started blogging. Blogging is the best and I can't imagine not doing it. I have met the most bestest pups, kits, and all other critters a Goose could ever meet.

Frank The Tank said...

Hi Frankie and Ernie! I do not gave Facebook or Twitter, I don't like them, they feel cold and dangerous to me! Blogger is my little world, its where I can tell my story and my followers are more like my family and my friends, I love the community, the spirit and love for my fellow Bloggers, so for me its blogging all the way and like you I get so attached to my fellow blogging furiends that I miss them when they leave or even go on holidays and have genuine sadness when someone goes over the rainbow bridge! Thank you to all my friends here and to you for sharing Mangos post! Love, Licks and Hugs from Your furiend Frank x x x x x

Oh shucks Frankie, you are sounding kind of sentimental. Gotta take that Sentimental Journey, Sentimental Journey home to blogville which does exist.
