I’ve got a treat for you today
that no one can beat at their bay
Welcome, Pat Hatt!
It’s the rhyming man with a cat.
He’s come here to chat
about his blog, he sure has.
Sit back and relax
Or else the cat will spaz.
1. Hi, Pat! Please tell us about your blog.
It's Rhyme Time is pretty much what you would expect, everything rhymes. I go off on anything and everything. Sometimes it's just life happenings. Other times it is just random things. Then others I'll rant. I usually make it fun though, at least I hope so, poking fun at everything. I don't think there has been a topic I have shied away from yet. One word can spur a whole new post.
I started it back on Jan. 30, 2011. It was a means to advertise mainly and I was plainly ripping off the cat in the hat at the time. Due to the antics of my cat I figured I would use that. Then slowly it took a life of its own and Orlin had his own persona on the blog dubbed, obviously, the cat.
Where as many started to get an audience for their book, I started to just see what could be done while fitting in the odd link. The books stemmed from the blog and not the blog from the books.
2. For anyone who isn’t familiar with the Cat, can you explain this catty creature?
The cat is the persona I took on and it stuck. It sets me apart from others in my own unique way. I've had some think it was a cat blog, others think it was a poetry blog and many just think I'm nuts, but most come back because the cat has to have his say. And I seem to be able to get away with any and all topics because of the cat.
3. The cat is a little batty. What was your very first blog post?
The First Is Always The Worst But I'll Quench Your Thirst - it was rather meh and totally random as can be.
4. Why did you start rhyming?
I just knew I needed something different and for some reason a rhyming cat sounded fun. So away I went and I have rhymed every post since. I'm not sure I'd call it a career though. Don't you need to get paid for it to be a career? So my blog and nearly 100 published works (shameless plug) were all because of a Savannah cat that acts like a dog, loves to pull armpit hair and can open the front door. He sure opened a few doors for me.
5. What are the top 5 most-viewed posts on your blog?
Besides the first one I haven't the foggiest why they are my top five.
6. Do you ever get tired of rhyming?
Nah. I can shut it off and on with ease. Besides, I've got ten non-rhyming novels written. So I get plenty of non rhyme writing in as well.
7. Share your number one tip to bloggers just starting out.
Enjoy and explore the blog community. If you don't interact your blog will never make an impact.
1. Favorite time to post blogs? 7:00 am
2. Blogger or Wordpress? Blogger
3. Do you host guests? Have indeed at my feed
4. Where are you when you’re blogging? Arse pillow on the couch
Pat Hatt can be found in the East Coast of Canada. He hates writing these things but doesn’t mind talking in the third person. He dabbles in a little of this and a little of that, not afraid to attempt something new.
He is owned by two cats, one of whom has his own blog, It’s Rhyme Time. Yeah a rhyming cat, who knew? He would be considered a both person when it comes to cats and dogs.
He is also quite the movie and TV buff. As you can probably tell does not take himself seriously and has more stuff in his head than is needed. Thus the novels, short stories, adult books and kids books as just one more form of release.
Thank you, Pat, for entertaining us.
We all appreciate your fuss.
Please leave a comment for the cat.
If you don’t, you’ll end up as a mat,
for his litter box, you know.
So you better plug your nose.
(I tried to channel the cat, I hope I didn't splat.) :P
