BlogPaws is celebrating International Pet Blogger Month throughout the month of September. 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 4,000 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.
Our mission is to support pet bloggers, pet enthusiasts and people devoted to animals. BlogPaws works to promote the human-animal bond and share positive ways to use social media to further the health and welfare of animals everywhere. For those who have never been to a BlogPaws Conference, you are in for a real treat at the Nashville 2015 Conference. The blogger early bird pricing ends on October 31, 2014, so get in while the pricing is at its lowest: https://blogpaws.com/events/2015-conference/register/
International Pet Blogger Month was founded by BlogPaws in order to recognize all pet bloggers, microbloggers, and lifestyle bloggers with a pet focus. This month is an extra special celebration in your honor, and you should wear the badge with pride. Here is our very special BlogPaws badge you are welcome to right click, save, and display on your blog or social media site:
