I just this past weekend realized that today marks the fourth anniversary of Animal Massage Guide! I can’t believe it’s been that long since I started this blog, which I did on a whim, really. I had no idea how to set up a blog, install plugins, add photos and links, or even how to publish a post. Html was a new foreign language to learn and CSS another challenge to tackle. But with the help of a great blogging mentor (thanks, Court!), stubborn determination and LOTS of trial and error, AMG was born.
While I might have a glass of champagne tonight to celebrate, the main reason I’m tooting my own horn like this is to say THANK YOU! to all of you who visit, read, comment, and participate in this blog. It has been four years of meeting (both in person and online) and getting to know an amazing group of wonderful, generous, and gifted people dedicated to the well-being of animals.
Julie Lines of Voice of the Animals recently invited me to write a guest post about myself and AMG for her blog, and I didn’t realize at the time that it would coincide with this anniversary, but what perfect timing! Hop on over there if you want to read more about how AMG came to be, and also to learn about all the wonderful work Julie does (and don’t miss her post about how to communicate with animals here on AMG).
I mention in my guest post that I am getting a new kind of allergy treatments, and so far, I have had some pretty promising results, but want to make sure that they are real and lasting before writing about it. And I recently started studying a new (to me) complementary health modality which I am so very excited about. It’s one of those things that just feels right, I love learning and practicing it, and the best thing is, even if I do still have a tiny bit of allergies to dogs (which supposedly I do not any more, but still testing) I can still do it. Sorry to be so mysterious, but all this is in the beginning stages. I promise you will hear all about it eventually.
As for AMG, I am going to continue to explore all aspects of holistic animal health, and I have a few new projects that I’m currently working on as well. Here’s to another year of amazing discoveries! And again, thanks for sharing this journey with me.
Update: And here we are, a few more years down the line, with a new name, logo and look!
