Back in October 2009, I met Caroline Golon, “staff” for the the amazing Romeo the Cat.
After meeting online through social media, Caroline commissioned a pet portrait from me as a gift for a friend.
We had the opportunity to meet face to face in Columbus, OH, so I was able to hand deliver the portrait, and we became fast friends.
And we started talking about BlogPaws.
Caroline and some other pet bloggers were kicking around the idea of holding the first ever pet blogging conference in Columbus. She asked if I would like to be a part of the committee organizing the conference.
I enthusiastically accepted!
BlogPaws has now shaped up to be a HUGE event in the pet blogging community and the pet products and services industry. More than 250 bloggers, writers and companies passionate about pets will come together for networking, learning and fun.
Taking place April 9 & 10, 2010 in Columbus, Ohio, BlogPaws 2010 will feature keynotes, panel discussions, breakout sessions and social events.
There will also be a special “PawsArt” art exhibit and silent auction, featuring some of the finest pet artists in the country, with 50% of the proceeds benefiting animal charities.
I am proud to be one of the exhibiting artists at BlogPaws.
Registration is still open, and there is a Sweepstakes to win a free trip to BlogPaws if you enter by March 19, 2010.
Meeting people who love animals as much as I do from all over the world at BlogPaws will certainly be one of the highlights of my year.
I hope to see you there!
