Good things are coming in August…Stay tuned:)
So my first post back and I am already hitting you up for a favor. But it’s for the greater good so hear me out:)
I know things can be rough around this time of year. Hell, it’s been rough all year long for some people. The economy is kicking peoples butts these days. But did you ever think of the non profits that are tying to still stay afloat. We ALL are trying to keep our personal lives in the plus column,while these fine people are still trying to help the ones they can. Bottom line…when everyone needs to save a few pennies,donations to these wonderful places can be the first to be cut. Since this is a animal/pet blog you know my cause is strong to help as many furry friends as I can. Now more than ever these guys need our help.
Now before you start to wiggle in your seat and get uncomfortable, just know I am NOT going to hit you up for money. Not my style. But I did find a way to help out your fellow man..er fur friend and not spend a dime.
Let me introduce you to Swagbucks..
I will be the first on to scream SCAM when I see it. So before I could tell you about it I wanted to try it out first. I was told about it by a friend of mine that uses it during the day for work searches and she earns these things called bucks. Simple.. you earn bucks to redeem them for giftcards or other products.
I know what your saying…seems like alot of work and you have to do it FOREVER to get anything worth a crap right? WRONG. I have only been using it for a few months and I already have enough points for a 25 dollar gift card to a few retail stores.
I also want you to know I’m not trying to do this for my personal gain. Yes I will get credit when you click the banner and begin to use it.. BUT I will be donating all my bucks to get gift cards to give to rescue shelters. Best part is you can help me and help yourself at the same time. I earn what you earn. You totally do not have to donate your bucks. you can get whatever you would like for yourself..I just choose to donate mine.
Please click on the banner and at least take the time to look over the site and see if it is something that you might enjoy. The site has pletny of ways to earn bucks. You can watch videos, play games, take fun surveys, or just use swagbucks as your search engine and BAM you earn bucks. 450 bucks earns you a $5.00 Amazon gift card. You can totally earn 450 in one day..easily.
Ok.. I’ll stop preaching now and I just wanted to throw it out there. I just figured this is a great way to help the animals without having to break the bank doing it. They can always use the giftcards to buy dog food, toys, litter and whatever else they need.
If you have any questions about it please feel free to email me and I can help. I truly do love Swagbucks and feel like it’s an enjoyable way to do something good.
Good Lord it has been awhile. Not to drag out the long boring details but I have been going through a few life changes here in Florida and things are just getting back to normal. I promise to breathe new life into this here blog and store. Lots of exciting things to lok forward to and my wheels are always turning.
Thanks for all the concern and quick emails asking if I am ok. Truth be told I am getting there. Day by day.
Just know that i am back and I will be better than ever.
Thanks for hanging with me .
It is finally here everyone…Our very first fundraising adventure. Over the past few weeks you have heard me talking about our efforts. What we will be doing is picking an animal charity each month and donate all of our ad revenue and 10% of every sale to them. We had a great response in submitting potential groups but we had the most chatter from one very lucky group. I am not super surprised that this first month will come from a place in my very own home town since I spend most of my time networking here. I wanted to be fair and really show the one that had the most submissions.
Without further jibber jabber from me explaining what the goal is(DUH raise money) let me just let everyone know who it is and how you can help.
The fundraising focus for the month of August will be helping support Sophie’s Circle in Port Orange, FL.
Please check out their website to get to know them and see what they do on a daily basis to help support the animals. What got me and I think a lot of people are that they manage the only pet food bank in Volusia County. With that responsibly also comes great challenges. As of this post they have over 500 families registered for assistance. That equals out to 579 dogs and 810 cats.
WHOA!! Can you see the need?
They ask for donations in the form of dry or canned food or of course monetary donations. (That’s were we are going to come in people!) But if you can imagine stocking one food bank.. what about two? With the need always increasing they are set to open another one just to help out even MORE animals. While the donated food is a huge help.. they tend to buy pallets just to keep up with the demand.
I have talked to the fine folks at Sophie’s Circle and they are very excited and are grateful for the support of the community close by and all over the world. Let’s make the most of the month and help out as much as we can.
There are two ways you can help.
1. See the ads on this site and on the store site? By clicking on the ad links (if you’re new to blogging lingo) the owner of the sites gets a few kickbacks. It’s not a lot but every little bit helps so if you can’t afford to donate at this time(hey..that’s ok) you can click for free and still know that you will be helping the animals at Sophie’s Circle
Have questions? Let me know. Our mission this month is to help out the food bank and we can all feel good a few pups and kitties will have a healthy meals and snooze happy dreams with full bellys.
One last piece of business…My site will be undergoing some major changes ( for the better) over the next few days. If for whatever reason the blog or the shop site does not come up right away.. please do check back…All for the greater good right? MyUberPet.com will be the new site to log into and everything will be right there. YEAHH! No need to go to two different sites. As they say two will become one:)
Have a great week.
Yeah Yeah Yeah.. Another NASCAR post I know but I can’t help it people I am surrounded by it everyday. This story got my attention over the weekend and then my followers on my NASCAR Twitter account got to talking about it as well.
This weekend the Camping World Truck Series race was at the Nashville Speedway. They were having routine practice when they had to put a halt on everything because a one eyed Beagle got onto the track somehow. EEEK!!! Everyone stopped and thanks to the very observant official that spotted him everything turned out ok. We are guessing the dog took a dreaded right turn onto the track. ( That is my poor attempt at humor since everyone thinks NASCAR is left turns only..it kinda is but still)
Ok best part of the story is my fellow twitter peeps started a hashtag #namethetrackdog after it happened…Here are a few to get you laughing.
Jack Roush Terrier
Most are drivers here with the names changed accordingly. LOVE IT.
Love the video with the officials trying to get him. Pupster is like “I’m at the track and I WANNA GO FAST!!”
