Ask Tazi! started as a "clubhouse blog"; a writing assignment that required me to design the type of blog that would interest others and develop a regular following. For my clubhouse blog, I chose to follow a silly little dream that I have had since Ann Landers passed away: I would write an advice column. The only problem with this idea was my fear that nobody would write to me! Just then, my cat – Tazi, who had been emphatically meowing for a treat – jumped up onto my laptop computer and started pawing at the keys. I then realized that many people talk to their pets and, like me, wish their pets could answer them. Inspiration struck! I had found the public face to my advice column, and Ask Tazi! was born.
The project was only supposed to run for a few weeks, but developed such a following that I continued to write and publish it. Ask Tazi! now runs six days a week, Monday - Saturday, with an opinion feature Tazi's Corner running on Sundays.
