Tabitha and Woody here today. We want to stress how important the buddy system is. Wikipedia describes the buddy system as a procedure in which two people, the "buddies", operate together as a single unit so that they are able to monitor and help each other.
Woody and Iare best friends and take care of each other. Where one of us is, the other is not far behind. We like it like that.
Our Mom's buddy Marg went missing this week cuz of a internet and phone problem. Everyone was worried about her but she was OK and did let someone know. Lots of our blogging buddies live alone and don't have family nearby. Mom thinks we need to set up a buddy system where each one of us pairs up with someone else that blogs. It can be two bloggers who live close by, a new blogger and a seasoned one or just two bloggers who like to chat with each other.
We can do it officially if you want (Mom volunteers) or just find a fellow blogger you like and want to pair up with. Even if you have family, they may not know anything about your blog or your blog buddies and won't know how to reach all of us if something happened to you. Even if you don't live nearby, you can still help by knowing about their pets, emergency contacts and vet info, in case something happened.
Some ideas on how to do this -
- Find a buddy
- Decide how often you want to check in with each other especially if you don't post every day on your blog.
- Exchange emails, phone numbers etc.
- Exchange phone numbers and emails of an emergency contact.
- Swap names of your pets, photos, ages and special needs and vet contact info.
What do you all think about this idea and how would you like to see it set up? Leave a comment or email Mom. Thanks for being our blog buddies!
Mom went ahead and set up a blog just for people trying to find others in their area. Go to Pet Blogging Buddies.
