Giveaway and Blog Changes Coming Soon
Change – I hate change, y’all, but sometimes it’s for the best. I need to let y’all know about some giveaway and blog changes happening soon, as in this week. Good changes, I’m pretty darn sure.
In the five and a half years I’ve blogged for Jones Natural Chews, I’ve done my best to be as transparent as possible with y’all. I tell you about the great elements of treats (just about everything with nearly every treat), as well as the things I don’t like about treats (hooves stink when they’re chewed – there’s no getting around that truth). Today is going to be no different. Change is a’comin’ and you need to know about it!
Changes Within Jones Natural Chews
Changes within Jones have been happening for nearly two years. Jones Natural Chews are amazing all natural treats, Made in the USA with USA-sourced ingredients. That doesn’t change. And because they’re so incredible, the company is growing. It happens. And they’ve had to bring in people to help them grow responsibly, while still turning out the very best treats on the market. A lot harder to do than it sounds.
I, as their blogger, am in Tulsa, Oklahoma, while Jones the company is in Rockford, Illinois. Also meaning that, bringing everything in-house, this particular blogger is moving on to other pastures. Not greener ones, necessarily, since this has been the very best job in the entire world, but different ones.
Is This Goodbye?
Y’all, Jones Natural Chews will NEVER not be my favorite treat for my dogs. I’m grateful that, in the five years since I began blogging for Jones, Tulsa and Oklahoma have expanded their treat stock to include Jones in Atwoods, Tractor Supply and Southern Agriculture stores. I can find them where I already shop! So for me, it’s not goodbye when it comes to giving my own dogs Jones Natural Chews. I know it won’t be for you, either, if you’ve ever given them to your dog. That would be like having Godiva truffles, then going back to Hershey bars. You just can’t!
But goodbye to my voice here and in social media? Yes. Oh my word. As much as I dearly love this job, after five and a half years, I’m ready for a break. Not from y’all. Not from Jones. But from social media itself. Social media is loud and demanding. I’m looking forward to a little peace and quiet. The timing couldn’t be better, since we’re hoping to make our move to the country in the next week or two. I’ll be petting my cow, playing with my puppies, watching my duck and geese, all from the comfort of our ten acres in the country. Eventually I’ll miss you all and wander back here to read and comment.
But What About Giveaways? What About the Blog?
Good news! The giveaways will continue as is for the foreseeable future. The Jones blog will also continue, but with a few changes in the spirit of providing even more information and communications from the Jones team, and perhaps some visual changes over the next month or so. Of course, better communication is better for all of y’all in the long run. There will probably be some kind of adjustment period. And I’m guessing that, overall, the blog will be greatly improved. As it should. Y’all deserve more and better.
So I’ll be blogging most of this week. I do love this company. But cancer for a year, readying a house for sale, losing my two senior dogs, moving – it’s just time. The best thing about it all have been the friendships developed along the way. So, look for me in my usual places. I’ll be posting cow and duck photos, as well as spectacular views from my new front porch. And I’ll be popping in here to enter giveaways. Heh. Y’all better up your entry game, because IT IS ON.
Spreading the good chews …
