|Mr Bumpy, taking care of Mum.|
Big changes are happening here at Mr Bumpy Cat.
As some of you may know Mum is sick. She has lupus. Recently she had to stop work because of this. Now, we're looking at maybe even having to move, because we can't afford the rent in this house any more, and because the house is too big for Mum to look after it.
I know that some of you think I take Mum for granted, but as far as humans go, she's OK, and I do want to help her out. After all, if she can't afford Friskies and stinky fish, I'm in trouble.
(Although if we have to give away the dog, I don't mind that at all.)
What did you say? - Mr Woof, doggsbody.
It's OK Woof, we'll stand up for you. - Rupert Rat, organiser, the Rat Collective.
One of the things we're doing to try to help out this situation is to start doing sponsored blog posts where we can. That means that someone will pay for a cat-it-orial. Don't worry, you'll still hear from the animals at mrbumpycat.com - no-one will tell us what to say. (As if anyone could tell me what to say.) But at the end of a post, when it is sponsored, you will see a message to say who sponsored it. Somewhere through the cat-it-orial itself, you're likely to see a link to them as well.
Now, here's where things will really change. We need to list Mr Bumpy Cat with an agency that links sponsors with bloggers. The agency wants us to have only our own content - not things copied from other people, and to have a set theme for the blog. To do that, we will need to take out all the jokes, and just have our cat-it-orials and awesome animal stories.
Over the next few days, we are going to remove the jokes. Yes, I know, some of you may be unhappy with that. On the other paw, you'll get more of ME! And no-one can ever have too much of their favourite Supreme Feline Overlord, can they?
Losing the jokes is going to be very sad, but sometimes sacrifices must be made. How else is a bloggercat going to put mice on the table?
Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
Supreme Feline Overlord.
