Do you know what happens at BlogPaws?

Pet blogging and social media networking doesn’t get any more exciting than it does at the yearly Blog Paws Social Media Conference for pet bloggers and animal enthusiasts. Last week in Las Vegas, the Tripawds Nation rocked this fun event!

Between May 7 and 11 the #BlogPaws conference helped us build exciting new connections with unforgettable pet bloggers and enthusiastic animal-centric brands from all over the world.

BlogPaws is one of the best methods to learn how to make our community better than ever! When we weren’t cramming our brains with new information about social media, we hung out with Barret’s Mom Heather, who works for That Pet Place.

    Your passion for this shines through each photo and I loved the slide show… and as regular “Facebooker” … I did learn some things! Not my cup of tea to manage all that stuff – that is for darn sure. I’ll help you raise the funds to keep this going till there is no more canine cancer!
