As Blogpaws Ambassador, you can imagine we have hit the ground running!

BlogPaws Ambassador First Report

Going from so far away you can imagine, jet lag hit home but, thankfully as we had taken a few extra days as holiday, we arrived at the venue – selected as inclusively pet friendly, to find a very VERY warm welcome.

Arizona is hot but we guess you know that so we will preview our full fun reports with some sneak peeks of the friends we met, and the impressions made on us.

  • We have been busy as Ambassadors! One of our tasks is making the sponsors feel welcome, so we visited the conference venue and sponsors hall for the first afternoon. These people are fully engaged and welcoming – pet bloggers you need to be here!
  • We have been running hot on Twitter with the #Blogpaws hashtag! Check it out for images, information and fun!

 

There is a lot of really engaged conversation, learning and some seriously good food to keep us all going! 

One of the magical things is the room views for everyone. Sure, you need to walk a way to get to your room BUT once you get there you find this!

Further BlogPaws Ambassador Reports

Tonight is the Nose to Nose Awards – we have friends Erin the Cat Princess and Seville at Nerissa’s Life up for the Humour category and A Tonk’s Tail is a finalist in the movie category. We will report fully as soon as we can. This will be thrilling and is streaming live on the internet. Check Twitter, or Facebook for details.

    Great report! I so hope Lisa wins for that amazing video! Wish I was there with you but we can’t be everywhere at once. I saw some pics of great friends Summer and Emily and Janet and mom to Christy Paws in your pics.

    Next time you meet Mr. N, we’ll have to do photos. Wasn’t the scenery gorgeous? Mr. N found all sorts of wildlife he wanted to chase.

    All this ambassador “stuff” is new to me, I admit I don’t know anything about it. Sounds really exciting though, and I’m sure it must be amazing to meet the faces behind the blogs we all enjoy. Look forward to more reports.

    I had a PAWsome time last year, even though I was running around with my tail in a twist trying to get all the CWA stuff done. This year, I’m not in charge of ANYTHING … so even though I’ll only be there 1 1/2 day, I plan to enjoy everything.

    I think such events are fantastic in allowing people to network, learn from each other, share insights … it’s a great idea which seems to keep getting better every time.

    What a great introduction to how awesome BlogPaws can be. I know the days are jam packed, and it can be tiring (especially after long travel and jet lag) but it’s so worth it for so many reasons. Thanks for sharing this post. I’m counting down the days until Myrtle Beach!
