Celebrating (About) 1 Year of My Blog!

Hi there fans! As you may have noticed, I have given my blog a new look. In fact, it’s much more than that! I’ve moved from WordPress.com to the self-hosted version (if you don’t know what that means, don’t worry). My last site was great, but in my pursuit of fame, it just didn’t have some of the features I needed. For instance, I will now be able to setup my online store! (Not ready yet though).

Some of my more long-term fans may have noticed that I recently decreased my posting from 2 posts to 1 post per week. Well, that was because I was secretly working on this!

I’ve launched this site today because it marks the approximate 1 Year Date since I first started the blog. It’s not very often that I reveal this much about my plans or get this mushy (so enjoy it while it lasts), but I have to give a big, warm thanks to all my fans and their support. I wouldn’t be moving to this new site today if it wasn’t for their love and ‘demand for more’!

Since I started my blog a year ago, the response I got was incredible. I usually keep the statistics of my fame private, but here is my monthly growth over the past year with the actual numbers removed..

Up, up and away!

Now, it’s important to note that I don’t really feel anymore famous now than when I first started. Actually, that’s kind of why I started the blog – because I was already a celebrity to begin with.

Although, I can say my responsibilities have changed. I have a lot more people (and doggies!) looking up to me now, so I have to be a role model to them. That’s why I’m always sharing my expert advice on partying, picking up chicks, and living the celebrity lifestyle – as these are all very important life skills.

Anyway, I have even more news than just my new site!

A lot of people have been asking me for a Crusoe calendar. I’m thinking I will take it a step further and make a nice Coffee Table Photo Book – a collection of my best photos and captions. A calendar is nice, but after a year what will you do with it? A photo book will be a more lasting keepsake.

I’ll let everyone know when it’s ready and for sale in my Store!

And wait – that’s still not all!

To kick off my new photo book, and also to do something fun for ‘Halloween’, I’ll be launching a new Photo Contest shortly, where the winner will receive the first official, pawtographed version of my Photo Book! (Plus some other goodies of course). I haven’t set an actual start date yet, but here’s a quick synopsis of how to prepare for it.

The photo contest will be the ‘SuperDog Photo Contest‘, where myself, AKA BATDOG, is looking for a new sidekick. So you need to think of a good story as to why your dog should be BATDOG’s sidekick, and also get a photo of it! It could be your Halloween costume, or you might not even need a ‘costume’ (hint: I don’t like the term ‘costume’ for superhero outfits). Even a really heroic pose with a good reasoning as to why they should be my sidekick might just do the trick!

Something to think about over the next week or two..

So there you go. I just revealed a whole lot about my short-term plans (I don’t think you can handle the long-term plans just yet).

And then of course, there’s my vacation to the Bahamas at the end of November. It’s going to be a busy couple months!

Thanks again to all my fans! Hope this gives you a lot to look forward to!

Keep ballin’,

~ Crusoe

  1. Crusoe–you are an amazing paw-pen friend to have! My mum is always inspired by your anventures and laughs out loud when she reads your blogs and facebook. She picks me up to see your pictures and reads me the responses she writes on facebook (I think she thinks she is clever). My dad will laugh at the pictures mum shows him of you. He loves Batdog!

    Keep everything coming!

    A black and tan mini-doxi,with a lot energy for adventures, will be two in March–single

  2. Congratulations on your blog anniversary, Crusoe! My girl, Waffles, and I LOVE reading about your adventures and admiring all your fabulous photographs. We love and enjoy your blog so much! Thanks for sharing your marvelous life with us! We look forward to many more years with you!

  3. Buddy and Lulah are busy thinking of their pitch for your new sidekick(s) They work as a team so maybe she can be the femme fetalle who creates ongoing conflict and intrigue while testing each male’s crime fighting super hero abilities? Since Buddy is sporting his new Fall argyle sweater I am thinking he is the reserved collegiate type renowned for his criminologist mind??? and Lulah is his undergrad assistant who moonlights undercover, wearing something fitting her mini dachshund figure (she has papers so I am sure this would be some Ivy League Easter University??) We will be working diligently on our presentation complete with pitches for future blog mysteries! undoubtedly centered on capturing corrupt wirehaireds!

    • Undoubtedly..

      Looks like you’ve got it all figured out ; ) Don’t give away all your secrets though! Can’t wait to see your full proposal!

  4. We realy think your new site is the bomb. We will be thinking up super hero things also. Your friends Glory and Pogo

  5. Wow! Love your blog…I haven’t got my own (yet) but I manage to muscle in on Mum’s (her readers miss me when I’m not there!) I do a lot of posing, so I’ll try to get better at doing it when there’s a camera about. Congratulations on your blogging birthday!

  6. I just stumbled on your blog today and I think it’s awesome! My boyfriend has a doxie too (his name is Mozo, which is Spanish for little boy heehee). We love him to bits. I think Crusoe is so adorable too!

    Cheers all the way from the Philippines!

  7. Crusoe, I always smile and sometime laugh out loud when I read your posts. Your Blog is great and I am sooo excited to see the new coffee table photo book. How exciting. And your growth over the past several months is amazing! I love hearing about all of your adventures and Meika and Zuckie are always happy to hear from you! I am looking forward to hearing more of the antics of Crusoe! Keep it up and keep exploring! Love you Cruose!

  8. Love your new website, can’t wait to visit your store. I am sure the Hooligans will love getting something from their favorite doxie for Christmas. Puppy Hugs!

  9. Hi Crusoe! So excited to check out your new store. What a great idea! Looking forward to another great year hearing about your adventures. ~ Kristin & Blue

Please rething your Calendar. I will buy one RIGHT NOW !
    Hugs and Kisses……..Kim !

    your pal
