Blogpaws 2013

So, before I feel caught up on sleep and before my posts analyzing every session and event I feel like I just need to get the word out there about Blogpaws 2013.

Blogpaws was AWESOME! I learned so much about blogging, about rescue, about networking, even about my sweet Daisy. My “goals” going into Blogpaws this year really are telling that I am still a total newbie in the blogging world and that I have so much to learn. I’ve already made some back end changes on my blog and soon-you will see some changes yourself.

Blogpaws has helped me start to better understand what it is I really want out of all of this. Honestly, in my “real life” I don’t know any bloggers of any sort. I have internet connections-in fact many of you-but there is something to being able to sit down with someone to discuss issues you are having.

I was also able to meet so many of you while I was there! I enjoyed meeting all of you. Some of the bloggers I met were writers of blogs I was reading long before I ever had a blog myself. Many were writers of blogs I had not yet discovered.

Oh, and if you were wondering, yes, Daisy was the absolute star of the show. Taking her was the right decision. Having her was the best icebreaker a shy person could have when trying to meet people. Ears win ever time!

In addition to Blogpaws, Grandpa, Daisy, and I spent a few days touring Washington DC before the conference. I’ll be writing some about that too but here is a preview of the  trip…

If you didn’t get to attend or want to see what Blogpaws is all about I’d look on Instagram and Twitter under “#blogpaws”. Many of us were sending out pictures and messages from all the events and sessions.

  3. I was so excited to meet you and Bella and you’re right, she made it easy. See, I’m shy too and had a much easier time approaching the dogs than the bloggers. :]

    BlogPaws WAS amazing and I have to take a few days to process everything but without a doubt, the best part for me was meeting the dogs and their bloggers. Lesson learned for next time – figure out how to do that better since I can’t bring the dog. :\

  5. Loved meeting you and Daisy! I also had an awesome time at BlogPaws and got SO much out of it. I feel like it’s going to take a month’s worth of blog posts to write out everything I want to share…I don’t think anyone wants to read my 5,000 word blog post, so I’ll be nice and split them up.

    Love that wonderful pic of Daisy! She definitely looks like royalty in that photo!

  10. It was so great to meet you and Daisy! She looked so elegant and fashionable every time I saw her. It took me months to digest all the stuff I learned at BlogPaws last year. This year, I just feel like I can’t get caught up on anything, but it was so great to be able to go!
