Blogpaws Finalists thanks to the you, readers and supporters of Dash Kitten.

Today is the last Thankful Thursday before the BlogPaws Conference gets underway, and bloggers find out things, learn things, make discoveries and are up for award things. Thanks to Brian we join our readers for one of the most blog celebratory of blog hops. Next time, we will be back to normal – well as normal as our blog gets with Dusty’s videos, and our worldwide interviews 😉

BlogPaws Nose to Nose Awards

We thought you might like to see some snippets of the Press Release sent out to the local media here in New Zealand. It is mostly written by BlogPaws but we added our own information for local use.  It gives you an insight how these things are written – which we are thankful for because we could not have done this alone!

Local Blogger is BlogPaws Finalist for International Pet Industry Award 

Whskr in Brisbane

23 March 2017Lower Hutt, New Zealand  

BlogPaws, the first and original social media network and conference designed by and for pet bloggers and pet social media influencers, recently announced finalists for the BlogPaws 2017 Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards. Local resident, Marjorie Dawson, was selected as a finalist in the Best Written Pet Blog Post (Sponsored) category, and the Best Pet Video on a Blog category.

Designed to honour the best of the best in the pet blogging and pet social media influencer world, 56 finalists in 14 categories have been selected by a panel of industry professionals. The 14 winners will be selected by judges based on creativity, expertise, and performance in their respective categories.

Our Two Posts as a BlogPaws Finalist

These are the only pet industry awards on which pet bloggers and pet social media influencers are judged on the expertise, performance, and creativity of the entry. Each category is judged by a distinguished panel of professionals, and not by popular vote. 

BlogPaws hosted its first pet-friendly social media and marketing conference in 2010 and has grown annually into the biggest social media event and conference of its kind with attendees from all over the world. 

Marjorie Dawson is available for commentary and interviews in conjunction with this honour. 


So there you go. We are thankful to be Finalists, win or lose. Our goal is to make a difference, and being a Finalist helps with that!

See you next time!

    Good luck! My human and I will try to catch the awards from here in Los Angeles – hopefully, my human will get back from the cat show she is at in time (she is helping my breeder show Billie that Saturday).
