2017 Blogging Cats Calendar Announcement

We’re very excited to announce that we’re designing the Blogging Cats Weekly Planner Calendar again for 2017. The spiral bound 2015 and 2016 calendars were a huge success and everyone was pleased with the quality, so we're moving forward with another one for 2017.  The planner will be a spiral-bound, weekly planner, with pictures on one page and the week in view on the facing page. We're including special holidays, events in the blogging world, and other pertinent information in the calendars this year.

Each blog can submit three to seven photos, which can include one of each of your cats or group pictures. If you have one or two kitties, find the best 3-7 photos and send them to us. We will use the photos in the order they are received to set up a collage of your blog for a week.  This format would allow for approximately 54 blogs.  If we still need more images, we will send out another notice.  

All photos should be “natural” photos of your kitties and not “photo shopped”.  We want this calendar to show the beauty of the blogging cats in their natural environment.  The photos should be clear, bright, and focused.  The photos should be in a variety of  orientations (portrait, landscape, and square). If you would like to design your own collage and send that to us, please make sure the collage is in portrait mode and measures 8" x 10" at 300 dpi.. If you choose to design your own collage, please follow the design of the sample collage below (colored space between the photos). Please remove any watermarks or names from the photos prior to submitting.  Your blog name and URL address will be included on the page and there will be a statement on the cover sheet that acknowledges that the photos are the property of the individuals.

Please send your photos to us by midnight, October 1, 2016.  We’d like to have the calendar completed by the end of October, so we can submit the order to the publisher in time for people to purchase for the holidays. Please send pictures of your cats to us at  Make sure you include the phrase “2017 Blogging Cats Calendar” in the subject line

  1. Send up to 7 photos
