Dangerous cat pic promotion!
This Week's Writing 7/14/23
We got a bunch of new followers this week, so hello! Hope you are enjoying the blogging. I post most days, including writing on politics, film, music, and whatever else crosses the transom. Until I get tired and yawn dangerously (see cat pic above.)
I usually post a cat pic a week, but! In an effort to boost sales and maybe give the cat pic fans what they want, for this week I thought I would post one (1!) pet pic for each new paid subscription I get. So will I post one pic? Five? Thirty?! It’s up to you whether my pics stay on the desktop or whether I need to follow the kitties about and torment them for more.
In the meantime! Here’s what I wrote last week!
