Happy 6th Blogoversary


6 years ago today we started this blog.
Little did we know that we would still be going strong.
We began with a simple idea.
All we wanted was a way to record our everyday memories.
Blogging was a novel idea, at least to us, back then.
I had actually started a journal about adopting Abby, about how I was going through trying to find my 'soul' kitty.
After a few weeks of journaling, I found that there were people who had online cat blogs.
In those days they were few and far between.
We found Max and then Timothy Dickens. Those were two we read all the time, so we thought if they can, so can we!
So on August 15, 2005 ManxMnews was started. WE wanted to call ourselves ManxNews, but someone already had that name, so we just added an "M", and we've been at it nearly every day since. We logged over 21oo posts on our blog and we aiming higher, so we're going for more!
Please join us in our celebration of 6 wonderful years with all of you.
It is such a pleasure to see how the blogosphere has expanded and grown. WE love all the new life that keeps coming. We hope to celebrate many more years and we have grown to love all of you so much. WE cry together, and we laugh together, and what is the most important thing, we share together. This is a wonderful giving caring community. I am so proud to be a small part of it.

Kitty kisses,
