The point of things. Why do I Blog? and a survey…

Why do I blog?

This feels a little like a school essay. *laughs*

Why do I blog? 27 February 2013

OK, let’s get serious.

I blog because its a form of healing for me. There are just some things that you need to get off your chest. I tend to bottle everything up otherwise and well, just like what happens to a bottle of coke when you add a mint to it… It explodes.

I blog about what’s important to me; my kids; animals; I blog about life. If you’re a regular here you’ll know I’m a little squishy, part sentimental, passionate about animals and I LOVE to laugh.

If I blog about a subject or something really really personal, its because I feel that someone out there will gain something from it.

My main objective, my ultimate goal is to show a connection between animal abuse and domestic abuse. Statistics in SA about animals are slim and many people don’t realise the connection.

So to kick start my goal, I’ll be running my own survey. If you want to take part, and I mean be committed to taking part comment ꜜ down there ꜜ in the comments section, or email me on with your info.

What I’d like to know is:

1. If you grew up living with domestic violence or if you were a partner / wife / husband / family of an abuser;

*a) Did the abuser – also abuse your / his / her pets?

*b) Did the abuser – start out by abusing your / his / her animals before progressing to you / your children / your family?

*c) Did the abuser – abuse the animals when you / your children / family weren’t around?

Then… If you’re really brave; could you tell a bit of your story? Please tell me your real name (for statistics purposes) but I am very happy to use a pseudonym to protect your privacy, if I use your story in a blog.
Tell it all or just a bit, writing is an amazing healing tool…
