It’s been a week since mom got back from BlogPaws 2013 Conference.
She is non-stop sharing information with me about the conference.
It was quite lengthy and it is best that mom shares and summarizes her BlogPaws experience.
So, here’s my mom …
It’s been years since I wanted to attend BlogPaws conference. I am delighted that it happened this year, BlogPaws 2013 hit a record high for attendance with over 500+people and ~80 dogs. A big thanks to the BlogPaws Team and Pet360 for making my 1st BlogPaws conference a memorable experience.
Attending the conference I was excited and at the same time a bit nervous. I am excited as I get to meet the actual people that blogs about their pet. Honestly, I don’t know most of the bloggers on a first name basis but I do know about their pet’s name (or blog name). I came to the conference without expectations but goals to network and learn more about blogging/social media. I’m delighted to have met many of my fellow dog blog bloggers and connected with new bloggers (mostly cats). I conversed with many people and attended great sessions.
My mind is overflowing with a lot of great useful information.
Also, it made me form additional questions of What? How? and Why?
Having no expectations in the beginning now I’ve created many (for myself).
I don’t have an intention to make a major blog change.
I am proud of what I’ve accomplished.
My post will continue to be inspired by Sugar with Lots of Golden LOVE.
You might notice a change on how I present a post particularly a review and/or sponsored posts. As always, my intent is to make it a fun and interesting post. One session I attended was about copyright. I plan to do a tutorial blog post as many have asked me questions on my blog photo watermark. I’ll be happy to share some ideas on how to make one.
Lastly, I like to share …
- Pet Bloggers are passionate. Although made up of predominantly women, I’m glad to have met one male blogger.
- I did not have to use my “elevator pitch”. There was a friendly atmosphere. A simple hello and my Golden Woofs shirt opened up a conversation.
- BlogPaws consists of Pet Bloggers and promotes a sense of community.
Thanks again to all I’ve met.
(too many and I’m afraid if I list your names I might forget someone and I don’t want to feel bad)
Golden LOVE, Sugar’s mom Rosalyn
