BlogPaws Conference Holiday Sweepstakes



The calendar says December and that means it’s time for the BlogPaws Holiday Sweepstakes. One of the greatest gifts we can give our growing community of bloggers and microbloggers is that of education.

Established in the summer of 2009, before anyone ever thought of bringing pet people together via social media, BlogPaws grew from a start of around 200 pet parents and brands, to the nearly 3,000 members in our community today.

We continue to support all things pet, via our blogger outreach programs, our BlogPawsChats and BlogPawties on Twitter, and our national social media conference. We teach bloggers to get their blogging careers off the ground and help them to grow and escalate once they are established.

Now, it’s time to celebrate Giving Month at BlogPaws by giving the BlogPaws 2014 Conference attendees an unheralded opportunity to get some one-on-one time with a certain someone in our Holiday Sweepstakes.  Here’s the scoop:

If you register (or have registered) for the BlogPaws 2014 Conference by December 30, 2013, simply fill out the Rafflecopter entry below and you will be entered in the sweepstakes.
