BlogPaws Defeats Hurricane Irene!

DiggRedditPrintShare

Earthquakes and hurricanes can't keep pet bloggers from getting together! This weekend we had an overflowing event hall full of sponsors, bloggers, news media, dogs, cats, ferrets, guinea pigs, and…people. There was a LOT of hugging and laughter and frivolity with old friends meeting new friends and new bloggers making new friends.

Was there a hurricane – an earthquake? I guess so. We've been keeping up with it on the news – but BlogPaws went on as planned and rocked the ballroom and session rooms both Friday and Saturday.

Mind you, we were all watching the storm carefully. Some folks had to get home early – including our own Caroline Golon (who is home and fine) having travelled hundreds of miles with none other than the Rescue Ink bikers who spoke Friday morning. I'm sure she has stories to tell!

Watch for many stories about BlogPaws 2012 – session stories, sponsors stories, swag stories, meeting stories, food stories (oh yes there was cheesecake!), ferret stories, guinea pig stories, and stories of how even earthquakes and hurricanes can't keep the pet bloggers of BlogPaws away.

Here are some pics to whet your appetite – much, much more to come:

    I was very impressed with my first BlogPaws conference. There was clearly SO much planning that went into it! It really could not have been better run or more enriching for me as a blogger.
    One of the best parts was having all the animals around. Especially the CORGIS! 😉
    Thank you so much for all the effort … BlogPaws truly rocked.

    Laurie, I have to say the Corgi’s were marvelous. They were so beautiful…and well behaved. Thank you for coming to BlogPaws. We hope you’ll come back in 2012.

    Yep! Irene couldn’t stop pet bloggers! And, because we were all “stuck” together at the hotel it created bonding and networking opportunities we might not have had otherwise.
