Twitter chats, photo contests, recently released newsletters and more.Whew! So much goes on in a
week at BlogPaws and if you're not a member of the BlogPaws Community, haven't signed up for the newsletter (the sign up box is on the site homepage) or read the posts regularly you could be missing out!
- First things first. In case you missed our rocking Twitter #BlogPawsChat on Tuesday night, with Natural Solutions for Life, we chatted about their product, Natural Stride (Check them out on twitter with the hashtag #NaturalStride). The company manufactures supplements for both humans and dogs and are offering a 20% off coupon on purchases made through November, 19, 2013. Use code "BlogPaws" at checkout. Also, take a peek at their chart that shows how not all dog joint supplements are created equally.
- We made a new addition to our BlogPaws Learning Lab where we show you how to Code Your Own "Tweet-This" icon and also tell you why you'd want to code your own tweet.
We kicked off November as Pet Health Awareness Month and I shared some tips on how to tell if and when your pet needs a vet and how I noticed that Henrietta, the Diva Poodle, needed a vet visit. Are you in tune with your dog's moods, temperament and signs of potential illness?
Our PR Manager Carol Bryant shared pet health resources from PetMD and also urged all pet parents to take their fur babies to the vet for a health check up if they haven't had one recently. We need to be the health advocates for our pets.
BlogPaws' VIP winners were announced. These VIPs will be treated to a lunch with our keynote panel of speakers at BlogPaws 2014 in Vegas. The panel includes: Chloe Divita, Dino Dogan and Lena West.
The always popular Wordless Wednesday noted that "an active dog is a healthy dog." How much exercise does your pet get?
Blogging resources are crucial to the success of your pet blog, whether you're a newbie or a long-time pet blogger. We offered these 12 pet blogging resources for your review and perusal.
Continuing a conversation started in the Writer's Group in the BlogPaws Community, I posed the question: "You know you're a pet blogger when…" We'd love to hear your stories and how you just knew you had to take up blogging or pet writing as a career or a hobby. Join the community and join the conversation.
Stay tuned because we will be unveiling a brand new website in the near future. Rumor has it, we may also be running contests related to BlogPaws 2014. Don't forget to register (or give a registration as a gift). We sold out last year and you don't want to miss out!
