Purrformance Review

So, the time has come for Äiti's annual perforamce review, in accordance with the process advocated by Spitty  and Austin Towers. We have discussed this process together and I have been guided in my responses.
My Affiliate Typist’s Annual PurrFurMance Review  May 2015
Review of Äiti
Date 5.5.2015
Reviewed by Punapippuri, with input from perhe considered

Quantity of Output:  Has your purrson posted to your blog daily to give you maximum exposure worldwide and make you famous?

I cannot deny her this one, our posting has been regular and my facebook page is also used well. I tweet and follow others, and was recently described as an 'internet phenomenon' when a neighbour visited the Catio, hehehehe.  I even have my own stamp which is on our commemorative postcards sent to some Loyal Readers.

Quality of Output:  Are you, as snoopervisor, satisfied with your purrson’s choice of photos, words, creativity, imagination, truth, fun and general interest in your postings?

According to perheeni, yes, as we so have varied coverage but personally I think that not enough attention is paid to long-furred ginger mancats.  And maybe too much attention is paid to sultanas. Luckily she does not often interfere with unwanted editorial remarks, and rarely hijacks the blog for her own irrelevant purposes.

Client Pawticipation:  Does your purrson provide sufficient ways for your fans to contact you and for you to contact them?

Pretty much - and we have developed some very strong links with some Loyal Readers.

Pawticipation (Part II):  Does your purrson allow you to take part in fun blog-world special events, pawties, contests, and more?

If I want to, she has no choice and I take part. But I am a quiet Finnish cat who likes solitude (as much as I can with 12 others around me), so I do not often choose to join in.

Client Satisfaction:  Are your friends purringly contented with what they see and read on your blog?

We believe so. And we welcome feedback and try to respond to it.

Overall rating and comments and suggestions for improvement (in your own words):

( x )  High                  Four paws
(  )   Medium             Two paws
(  )   Low                   One paw
(  )   Worse than low Claw swipe

(  )   Pawful               0 (zero)

So it would appear Äiti has passed her performance review as a blog typist. Please notice that other aspects of her role as lackey have not been taken into account, and in no way would she score so highly with regard to treats, brushies, bitey opportunities etc. but we have to be fair and stick to the questions given - even if they don't reveal the whole truth!

For some reason our Mommy just quietly slinked away...

Your Äiti is WAY better than our lousy typist. She just up and LEFT us for two weeks, for example. SANS vacation request. Not that we'd grant one.

We kittehz would have to say that your human does a satisfactory job, with extra points for photography.
Our Mommy would say, " more sultanas"!
(she's a filthy wench.)

Happy Purrformance Review Day, Aiti!

Summer said...

Wow, you have been more than fair in your assessment!

well done äiskä! I like that your äiskä posts something every day, not all blogists bother to do that :/
(I personally would like see more pics of Mirsku. I m into BIG cats and I hear that M is a big hunk :O)

Your Aitimis a phenom among typists. Mine gave up 2 years ago trying to post every day for me.

1st of all: Katnip Loungers! You Mom is quite good as well, because she made it to an Ä in Äiti!!! I commend her for this effort!(I know, it doesn't make up to her travel, but we're talking about efforts made on blogging!

2nd: I'll give Äiti one of the biggest compliments she can get in her blogging carrier. I liked her (sorry your posts, King P) so much that I started to read the blog from the very beginning. I’ve bookmarked some page from 2008 (?), and I’m slowly reading my way through. It’s so much fun seeing you as a kitten!

3rd: Stamps? WHAT?? I’ve to check my envelope, if it had your stamps, I have totally missed it. SORRY!

4th: I’ve a challenge for Äiti! Is she still on a sick holiday and has no excuses? (Just a joke, I know it’s called different in English. For our non-Finnish readers: being on a sick leave is literally translated “being on a sick holiday” in Finnish)
I don’t like that the comment box opens in the same tab as the post. I like to reread posts whilst I’m commenting, because I normally refer to something being said. Some would be smart enough to open the comment box in a new tab, but I decided to be cleverer: can you make Äiti change the settings?

I love the photo of you all huddled together having a meeting. I always get nervous when I catch my kitties having a meeting. I am glad you gave the typist a good review- perhaps you need to talk to Austin about adding more questions about treats, etc.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

You are very generous in your review of Aiti. I fear my mum will score far lower. She once posted daily and now I am lucky for 3 times a week and she will duly be marked down.

There should be a section for free form comments!

A very interesting and on the whole positive review! I did wonder (and probably King Spitty does too) if The Affiliate Typists might actually alter some of what we dictate before digits hit the keyboard? Just a thought!

MOL Thanks for taking part :))
