Bad Cat Chris versus Just Fur Laughs


About a year after I started this blog, I started another blog called Just Fur Laughs. It is a blog featuring memes with animals. I worked on it diligently at first but after a while it sort of faded into the background.

Meanwhile, Bad Cat Chris continued to gain followers on the blog but not so much on the Facebook page. So I decided to put Chris in charge of the Facebook page and he managed to get 2500 followers by 2015. At the same time, or maybe shortly before, I considered dropping the Just Fur Laughs Facebook page for a lack of followers.

Since 2015 however, Chris has pulled in less than 300 more followers and is at 2792. I’m not sure why that is because we post on that page quite often. Just Fur Laughs’ Facebook Page, on the other hand, has been steadily climbing lately and I am not sure why because I have not been very consistent about adding new content, although I plan to do better.

Even though Bad Cat Chris has way more blog followers. Facebook is a different story. Every day recently I noticed that Just Fur Laughs was gaining and has now surpassed Chris with 2846 followers as of Tuesday morning.

I guess the reason I am writing this is because I don’t know how I feel. On the one hand, I am very happy that people like my work, but on the other hand, I wonder why Chris’s Facebook page has become stagnant. I guess even after all these years I am still learning. What do you think?

    You actually made me think a bit about Ted’s blog and how it is doing……..! I’m afraid I don’t keep an eye on how many followers we have – I just do a daily post and whoever is interested in taking a peek does. There is a core of “consistent” friends but others seem to follow on Facebook for some unknown reason since they never SEEM to visit or comment. I think lots of people join Facebook and whatever their interests are, automatically follow everybody that lists the same interest. They may never visit MOST of them – settling in on just a few. Same with the blog – lots of followers but the core of regular followers remains about the same. I have always blogged just for the fun of it anyway – not to get more followers. I have let what used to be Sammy’s page at Facebook go stagnant……takes what time I have to do the daily blog! You have a lot of followers for Chris and if you enjoy doing the Just For Laughs you should continue with it – and just do it for YOU…..those who enjoy it will follow!

    Hugs, Pam

      I agree. I do have fun with it. I wrote about it more because I was very surprised by how many people have been following Just for Laughs on Facebook lately, especially since I wasn’t making a huge effort there.

        I’m trying to use Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to promote my blog. But creating content for all three on top of making blog posts is overwhelming me. 😪

    Cool, we didn’t know you have another blog. We don’t even know how we’re doing on Facebook but I do get a lot of traffic from there.

    My guess: Just fur laughs is something people just want to get to these days … with the political and health and environmental situation as it is some animal jokes are very welcome.

      I agree but I don’t know how that works. I think Facebook promotes popular posts but I don’t know how they get popular without Facebook promoting them in the first place.

    Maybe because you share more photos posted to the Just Fur Laughs page, and more links to the blog on Chris’s page? FB hates linked posts, and will not give them as much reach because they don’t want people to leave the platform. Which makes it counterintuitive for a blog to even have a page on FB, really.
