6. Work on the nifty new Blog idea Tigger and I came up with.
7. Find a counter for our blog so we can have a Visitor Contest.
8. Figure out how to put a picture in our header that doesn't take up a ginormous amount of space.
9. Find a neat new template that computer dummy Mom can use that won't make us lose everything in the changing over process.
10. Get SonBean working on the other idea that he and Mom are working on.
11. Make more of Tigger's Comics. Like this one.
12. Get Mom a nifty new camera, so she can take fantastic pictures of Tigger and I, 'cause we are so cute.

That's a good list of things to do! My mom has links to some Photoshop tutorials if you are interested. I also need to get a bunch of badges and stuff up on my blog, but my mom is too busy visiting cat blogs and digi-scrapping during her study breaks to help me out with that!

A lot of digital cameras these days also take video. That's where most of my videos come from since it's super-easy to transfer them off the camera onto the computer.

They say one of the best ways to learn is to teach, so I'll happily volunteer to be taught photo shop so that you better learn how to use it. :D

you guys are cool cats :)

Daisy said...

I know just how you feel, it seems like there is always something to work on. You can use PhotoShop to resize an image for your blog header. It took us a while to figure out PhotoShop!

When we changed to a 3-column template, we had to reinstall all of our sidebar widgets, and it took a few hours. There must be an easier way to do it!

WAHM said...

Nose kisses and hugs to Tigger from Trixie.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Hmm, We like this list so much we are going to give it to mom...she needs to do something with our blog too. we'z missing badges and awards and all kinds of stuff. Our mom is kinda lame too...

The Meezers said...

if your mommy figures out how to do number 8, please let us know - it's driving us NUTS

Gattina said...

Poor cat ! tell your servants that they should do all this computer stuff themselves and not bother a poor cat with that !

Alasandra said...

Samantha are you the gorgeous black cat in the side bar?

You look so much like my Whiskers, I got a shock when I saw your pic.

Good luck getthing the things on your list done. There always seems to be too little time and too much to do.

Mickey said...

Cheysuli said...

Yes, we are still learning the free version of photoshop, Gimp. It's definitely got a learning curve.

Choosing a new camera is also hard. We agonized over our choice and finally went with the Canon as so many great cat bloggers have them.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Wow, you're going to be some busy kitties! Good luck! :)

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Sounds like you have a lot planned! Good luck with the changes, I can't wait to see them.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Hi Samantha and Tigger,
A picnic this weekend sounds like a great idea. The weather here is supposed to be really nice and not hot. There is a park right next to our house and we can go there.
Can you all come on Saturday or Sunday? Or both days! Maybe there will be some cute mancats for Samantha to meet.

Nose kisses and hugs,
Trixie

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

#8- since the meezers asked too...you have to make the image the correct pixel size to fit in that box. The one on Simply Siamese is 650 pixels by 157 pixels. You can adjust that in Photoshop. :) Photoshop really is key for us!

Chairman Mao said...

You kitties are already Blog Stars, and you shine furry brightly, too!

That's a great list of stuff to learn to do. Good luck with learnin' effurything -- I know you can do it!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

I second MaoMao; you are already great Blog Stars! You are both beautiful and sweet kitties! And good luck learning the new things to do to your blog -- blogging is very fun, and it can be challenging, too!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Henry Helton said...

That is a very tough list guys. Photo shop is very hard to learn, I am still struggling with it very much. I really really really love my visitor counter. It does a lot of things besides just track visits. You can go to www DOT activemeter DOT com and set it up.

I have a picture in my header. I have a wide header, it is 970 pixels wide. You have to use photoshop for that and adjust the image size. My Lady has two different types of photoshop and the free one doesn't let me adjust image sizes which is a bummer.

I hope you guys get all these things done. It will be really neat to come back and check everything out!

Alasandra said...

Samantha & Tigger, Charybdis & Scylla asked me to let you know that they just wrote a post and I put some pics of them up with it on my blog.

Jimmy Joe said...

Wow, you guys are very ambitious! That's a great list of things to do, but your blog is already really fun, too.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Mosaic Cats said...

Wow! that's an overwhelming list. And we share a few of those resolutions with you.
But not this week.
This week is already draining enough.
Let's just keep it simple and love on each other, ok?

The Furry Fighter said...

wow - if you achieve all that you will be true Geeks! and we will all come to you for help :)

But I am sure you will be very busy.

Crochetoholic Debb said...

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

Wow that's a lot.

Lux said...

You reminded me; I need to do that 7 P's meme. Good luck with getting all those things done!

Great list! We've been blogging for a whole year and we still can't get our secretary Mom to do 4,5,7,9,12, and 13. Sigh.

Ambitious list! Good luck :-)

Chelle Y. said...

I'm Minnie! I think your cats are cute! I am on my owner's computer right now. She loves cats, but also owns a dumb old dog!

Nice to meet you!

Irishcoda said...

That's a lot on your list! Our human bean wants to learn how to do a prettier blogger page too but figures she has to get the younger beans to help with photoshop. Our TT list has to do with not wanting to be a teen bean anymore. Who'd want to do that in the first place anyhow?
