Don’t be panicked by the title of this post. It does not contain 863 photos of me that would take all day to view or 15 minutes to scroll to the bottom, press ‘like’ (hopefully), breathe a sigh of relief and quickly move on to the next blog. The title of this post refers to the 863 posts that comprise Bassa’s Blog on its second anniversary.
On this day, two years ago, I was relaxing on the cool stone floor of the bathroom chatting to the tall person when he took this photo and suggested that we start to blog about our life in Tbilisi. This is the very first picture posted on Bassa’s Blog.
Neither of us knew much about blogging but decided to leap into the world wide web and hope that we would not be eaten by a gigantic internet spider. Fortunately we weren’t and I am beginning to think that there is no such thing as a gigantic internet spider.
Anyway, I digress. Like me, Bassa’s blog has grown over the last two years. My first post had two ‘likes’ (it still has) but since then I have made many wonderful blogging friends from all over the world. I want to thank everyone who has visited Bassa’s Blog. I know how busy you are and I am thrilled whenever you stop by and say hi and leave a comment.
It has been a busy two years. Aside from recording our daily adventures on the blog we published ‘Bassa’s World’ eBook at the end of last year and have plans to write another.
It’s another hot day in Tbilisi and just like two years ago I am relaxing on the cool stone floor of the bathroom chatting to the tall person. Hmm. I sense Déjà vu.
I asked the tall person how old I am today and he told me I am 2 years, 3 months, 2 weeks and 4 days old.
Who would have believed that this tiny pup……….
……..would become this huge pup in such a short time?
Hmm. At this rate of expansion I will be as big as Tbilisi in another 2 years, 3 months, 2 weeks and 4 days.
I will inform the city planners. Based on my growth prediction, in 2 years, 3 months, 2 weeks and 4 days there will only be room enough in Tbilisi for me, the tall person, De, the little person, Mari and my cat Barnaby. Because of this I suggest the city planners begin preparations to re-name Tbilisi. I suggest Bassaville.
One reader said, “I could go on and on about how much I loved it….from the walk around Tbilisi to Barnaby stealing Bassa’s bones it was a truly enjoyable read. I didn’t stop reading once I opened the book.”
Another reader said, “I LOVED this book! Seeing the world through Bassa’s eyes is odd, inspiring, adorable, and often hilarious! She gives us a wonderful look at her day to day life, with her human family, her cat, her neighborhood, and her town, with some invaluable tips for dogs thrown in. Bassa’s World is informative, and a ton of fun!”
