Get Chronicles of Cardigan Delivered for Free, Plus a Dog-Inspired Amazing Weight-Loss Tip!

Have you heard the phrase: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"? Yeah, so have I, but THIS ISN'T ONE OF THOSE TIMES!

You really can get all of my (or most anyone's) blog content delivered for free, straight to your inbasket, without having to do a thing (except sign up for email delivery or follow me on Bloglovin). But before I show you exactly how to do that (in pictures), let me share a WAY simple idea the dogs gave me for how to eat less, and therefore, lose weight (as I'm trying to do)! 

My Dog-Inspired Weight Loss Plan

Supplies you'll need:
  • Internet
  • Printer stocked with paper and ink
  • Tape
  • Dog or cat (optional)
  • Camera (optional)
Step-by-step directions:
  1. Obtain a photo of dog (or cat*) poop (you can get this from Google, or take a photo yourself, your choice).
  2. Print it off (number of copies depends, but I'd make at least 10).
  3. Tape one copy to the following places (not an exhaustive list): refrigerator, pantry/food cabinet door, your plate, all TV screens, bathroom mirrors, the book you're currently reading, computer/tablet screen, smart phone, the ceiling above your bed (or wherever you lie down to sleep), your alarm clock, the car steering wheel.
That's it!

(Disclaimer: Results not guaranteed, but considering I'm feeling queasy from just writing the directions, it just might actually work! *groans* Also, as with any new weight loss regimen, check with your doctor first. But, for the love of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, please don't tell your doctor where you got the idea!)

* If you have dogs, I do NOT recommend taping up pics of cat doody. Your dog will EAT your signs (or raid your cat box). 


So, now that I've given you plenty of reason to never EVER miss another one of my posts, let me show you how to get them delivered to you 2-3+ times per week! (Really! You'll never have to remember to find me on the Internet again!)

Email Subscription (Easiest)

See that same exact box over near the top of my right sidebar (hint: you have to actually be ON the blog to see it)? Well, all you have to do is type in your email address and press Submit! That's all! You'll receive an email each time I publish a new post (the entirety of which, is in the body of the email) - NO SPAM! Nothing extra! And no fake names in the From field! Yay!

Follow Chronicles of Cardigan on Bloglovin (Easy, but not as easy as email)

See that button up at the top of my sidebar? Yes, well if you have a Bloglovin account, when you click it, Chronicles of Cardigan will be added to your feed list. If you don't, you'll be prompted to create one. Bloglovin, in case you don't know, is like a blog reader, with a few extras. If you opt in, it will send you a daily email digest of all the blogs you're following, including a blurb from their most recent post.

So, will my next blog post be stakeout or DELIVERY? (No tipping, please. ☺)

By the way, have you seen Chronicles of Cardigan on Facebook? It's fun! Check it out!

Psst. Wait a sec. What do you think about my calling it the Shatkins Diet? ;)


  1. Crikey we'd never eat anything if we did that. We do get some blog posts by email but most are on our blogger reader which works fine. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Weight loss! Oh come on, it's muscle
    Lily & Edward

  3. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly why I nominated this blog in the Funniest Blog/Blogger category of the Petties Awards. OMG, thanks for the laugh! :)

  4. Cat poop would work too. ;)

    We follow you via email!

  5. Gotcha followed on Bloglovin'! Love your blog design, by the way. :)

  6. Mom are I are laughing as we have been meaning to subscribe to your blog for a long time and just now I pawed in your url to come and subscribe and saw this post! Fate! Thank you for saying email is easier. Maybe we are missing something, but it is the easiest way to follow a blog in our opinion. The last thing we need is another program to open! Love your blog and we are supposed to stay away from cat poop by the way, tasty as it is! Happy Sunday!


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
