Why I started Blogging!A writing challenge and partnering with Masblogs

I was contacted recently to do a partnering with a Blogger at Masblogs to do a post on a chosen topic,he has partnered up with Pup the Rabbit and a few others which you can check out here MasBlogs.The topic I chose for him is:What are your favourite type of blogs and the topic he chose for me was: Why did I start Blogging.Its going to be fun to see what type of topics he challenges me to write about and the ones I choose for him.


Thumper My last Bunny had crossed the rainbow bridge and we had just had Speedy 2 or 3 weeks,I was looking for information on Rex Rabbits and came across a couple of blogs which we gave a lot of info but they were not fun.So I looked for more and found a House full of Rabbits,and Disapproving Rabbits,Zen of Bun and Raspberry Rabbits,Lavender Rabbits and Big Ears and Tiny Tales and a couple more but compared to cat and Dog Blogs there wasn't much and just handful of guinea pig blogs.I could tell that Speedy was already a fun brave and Cheeky character So I thought I would start a blog about him and if nobody liked the blog I thought at least I would have all of his great memories saved for me and his dad to look over,so Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny was born and his fun adventures,and short stories about him were shared with you all.He became A knight of his own realm The kingdom of Speedom and then after having his eye removed due to glaucoma last year he be the Original Capt'n Speedy, Pirate and Buccaneer of his own ship the SS Speedy.Little did I know that it would snowball in to what we have today with a following of fellow pet blogger who have blogs about cats ,dogs,guinea pigs even Micro pigs and horses!That we would end up on instagram,Face Book and Pintrest and then to be Nominated for a Nose to Nose award at Blogpaws or even win it! and two and a half years down the road we are still here and some of the friends we made have stopped blogging but still email each other and we have made new ones,every friendship we have made cherish.

  2. That is really cool to know how you and Speedy originated. I only met you recently, so didn't know he had his eye removed. Bless his heart. He is very lucky to have such great bunny parents. I did a Writers Process Blog Tour today. It is very similar to this one. Congratulations on all of your success, it's well-deserved! ♥

  5. I am glad you started blogging. Putting a story to photos makes them interesting to look back on in future years as well as entertaining others now.
    I started when I was laid up with a broken leg and in my boredom googled "ginger cats" and found Fat Eric. I left a comment because we called our Eric Big Eric and it went from there.

  6. Sweet Rachel, having read your reasons for blogging, I smile and agree and also have learned a great lesson from you here. Like rabbits are accustomed to do, Speedy's popularity MULTIPLIED!!!!!!! teeeeee and even during a rough patch there with his surgery, you turned it around and adjusted his world and now he is our little Capt'n who runs a tight ship and is indeed ruler of his own kingdom of speedom! teeee

    I cannot tell you how special YOU and Speedy are to me. I enjoy all his antics and travels, and what I love about your ending here is that the bittersweet truth about blogging is we fall in love with so many dear bloggers and their creativity, but like life itself, some quit, die out, and those connections are either lost or some are maintained via emails. Either way, we've made a bright connection, and it has changed my life, that's for sure.

    Thank you dear heart, for coming to visit me, and no problem about the tea set. If you would enjoy it, it is not a problem to send it over seas. You and Sir Speedboat could have a little tea party in the garden!!!

    Much love, Anita
