Hello Dachshunds friends. Can y’all believe we started this internet journey — Rufusontheweb.com, back in January 1, 2012. Wow. That was 6 years, 11 months and 19 days ago; we’re quickly approaching our 7 year anniversary. Yikes. Time sure does fly when we’re having fun with sassy sausage hounds. 🙂 #HappyHoundsHappyHumans
We later (in the same year / July 2012) published our Facebook Page, DOGS. And your support on that social media platform has been overwhelming sweet. ❤ Thank you! With over a 1 million likes and holding and growing, we are humbled by your appreciation of our work. ❤ #ThankYou
As many of your know, we’ve slowed the frequency of our posts here and even a little on the FB page. Admittedly, after posting daily and then weekly, I personally got a little tired of living behind the lens (and at my desk) and wanted to spend some quality time in the moment with my pack, and especially with the aging, greying and distinguished dachshund Rufus. ❤ #GotLoveThemWhileYouGotThem ❤
Thankfully, I have had a family that is super support of my doxrazzie career and dachshund fine art photography. I’m lucky. However, the one condition my family ask is that I try not pay for everything on my own. The cameras, the lights, the costumes, photoshop software, the internet hosting fees, the banking fees for the charity, etc. — all of it adds up each year.
In the past we have used private clients to fund as much of it, as much as I could personally do, and some merchandise campaigns. But otherwise, I just pay for it all. ❤ #StrugglingArtistTrials
However, now it is time for you, all of you out in the world wide web, to let me know if you want more daily doses of dachshunds from me / us. ❤ ❤ ❤
The ever evolving social media giant Facebook, is now offering artists and charities like us to have supporters. If you want to see more original content from us, we’re going to ask that you become an official “D.O.G.S Fan Subscriber / Supporter.” #YESPlease
We’re only asking for 99 cents a month (that’s less than a dollar and only around $12 a year) for our hard work and efforts. We’re going to start to create exclusive content on our DOGS’ FB page for our supporters eyes’ only. So, if you don’t want to be left out, and you like seeing our original content, please enroll to be an official supporter today. #SupportersRocks #CantDoItWithoutYou
We’ll continue to create limited content for free and for the general public consumption, but we’re going to try to create some additional premium content for our loyal supporters. Your support will more importantly provide the motivation and encouragement we need to go on creating. Sometimes, feedback is sparse on cold and impersonal internet, and as an artist I don’t generally enjoy working in a vacuum.
Also, as fan subscriptions grow, we’ll work to secure exclusive deals and discounts with local and approved vendors for our audience. We’ve already done this for y’all in the past, and will continue to do it, as the opportunities come up. 🙂 #WeGiveBack
Okay friends. In nearly 7 years, we have published 1,279 posts right here for you, which over time is an average of a post every other day. And we like to imagine that you all have enjoyed them as much as we have creating them, and now you can offer that public affirmation by becoming an official supporter.
Thanks for the consideration and continued support. We love you gals and guys and especially all of those darling dachshunds so much!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
Here are some examples of the daily doses of dachshunds you’ll receive as an official #Supporter. 🙂
