This past weekend I attended BlogPaws 2012, a blogging and social media conference aimed at those that work with, train, advocate for, or write about anything with paws. It was held in Salt Lake City, Utah and welcomed hundreds of participants, numerous brand representatives, great speakers on the craft of blogging and social media, and oh yeah, people brought their pets!
I have to say in all my years of attending conferences, it was a bit unnerving at first having animals, mostly dogs…everywhere. But then it got fun seeing little furry faces everywhere. It was fun to pet all the ever-so-friendly dogs, as I didn’t bring either of my two dogs for two reasons. One, they’ve never been on a plane and I don’t know how they’d do. Two, they are both bottomless pits of need (and I say that in the nicest possible way) who would distract me from the learning I was there to do.
