A little something new

Oh no!   Where did all the posts go?    Not to worry … they are still accessible at my ole WordPress.com blog .. which has now become the old post archive.

Why the archive?    That answer is simple!     The short answer is that after years are blogging, there are just too many posts for my current hosting package.    The old blog is the original, and free, site where I brought my google blog over to wordpress.   What better place to put the archived posts so that they are still available?

Does that mean I am not blogging anymore?   Of course not!   But … sometime in the next couple of days the Granny’s Journal URL  is going to split back off to its own site.   The blog will stay here, under this URL.

If there is any really big news afoot, it is that I have decided it is time to retire the homeless pet site.   Why?    Because the need is not there in the same way it was when I started up the homeless pet project.   At that time there simply was not a lot of easily accessible information about pet adoption.

People who were interested in pet adoption often had  no idea where to look.     What were they doing when they hit a brick wall?   What do you think?  They headed right off to Kijiji or a pet store or a back yard breeder of course!

My mission was to change that.   To make pet adoption more popular.   To ferret out every little rescue that I could so that people could make informed choices.

Now before the keyboards catch on fire, I am not tooting my own horn here.   I certainly wasn’t the only voice promoting pet adoption   But it is a satisfying thing to know that in my own small way I have helped.

I will be forever grateful to Danjo Web Hosting for so generously supplying the web hosting for the homeless pet project.    Without their awesome support, none of this would have been possible.

I wouldn’t be me if I still did not try to help a teeny little bit.   So, if you haven’t already noticed, this site will still have some of my favourite rescue listings and will feature a few little adoptables along the way.

Thank you .. as always .. for your interest in animals.    I will still be blogging … at least until the day comes when we have all the laws in place to make Nova Scotia the best province in the country for pet lovers.   Please do not forget that the animals cannot vote.   It is our job as tax paying voters to remind the politicians we elect that animal welfare issues are important to us all.
