10TH ANNIVERSARY BLOGPAWS CONFERENCE

by Janet Blue on April 20, 2018

Day #2

Another busy and fun day at the BlogPaws Conference started with breakfast hosted by ComfortZone®. Kitty Cat Chronicles‘ Kylo Ren found something on the wall more interesting than breakfast or the speaker. We’ll be telling you more about ComfortZone® in a future post.

It was a full day of learning sessions both before and after lunch. I attended a great session on how to start a podcast and one on getting and building relationships with brands.

Lunch was provided by Seresto®, and I couldn’t resist having my photo taken with the giant Seresto® dog, especially as I was wearing my The Cat on My Head t-shirt and a velvet cat hat, complete with ears.

The evening included a trip to the park across the street from the hotel where Kylo Ren had a photo session with none other than our resident photographer, Dad Tom. Check out KittyCatChronicles on Instagram to see the model with his sleepypod® Air.

The humongous baseball shirt gifted to me, as an Official Partner of Remember Me Thursday ® (#RememberTheRescue), by the organization reps, made a cozy nightshirt as I snuggled in bed to write this post. Kitties Blue are great fans of Remember the Rescue. This year’s Remember Me Thursday® will be September 27. Watch for more information here later in the year. Or check out our 2017 post, Remember Me Thursday 2017.

Today will be our final day, with more learning sessions, another Keynote Address, the Nose-to-Nose Awards and the banquet. Lots of our friends are finalists for awards. You’ll be able to watch the awards ceremony live on the BlogPaws Facebook page beginning at 6 p.m. CDT.

Watch for my final report from BlogPaws next week. And don’t forget to check out all the tweets from BlogPaws on Twitter at #BlogPaws.

This is Kelly and Dad Tom. She’s already learned to pose for the paparazzi. Litter mates, Ken, Kevin and Karen were all there as well. Karen is the grey tabby.

  • I made an honor flag for Lily Olivia. Last year I made one for Fiona and one for Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats). To see those flags, click here to go to our blog post, “Glimpses from Blog Paws 2017.”

 

Honor Flag for Lily Olivia created at BlogPaws.

 

  • We each received a huge bag of swag, which included this special item for our little PTU Pooper, Sawyer. If you missed that post, you can see it at “Sawyer’s Sleepy Selfie.”

 

 

  • Frontline® hosted a happy hour, opening remarks and dinner.

Learning sessions begin tomorrow and more opportunities will be available to meet with the product sponsors.

A SPARK OF LAUGHTER

April 16, 2018

Sparks: Week #28     This crazy ginger cat makes me laugh everyday. I am grateful for that, as it is difficult to find much funny in today’s world. If not for the antics of Kitties Blue, Dad Tom’s inspired one-liners and the zaniness of The Big Bang Theory, I probably wouldn’t even crack a […]

NO MORE GRUMPY OLD MAN

April 15, 2018

Sunday Selfies: Week #192 I cannot believe I have not done a selfie since March 3. I have changed a lot in those five-plus weeks. I’m still a crazy kitten at heart, but I no longer look like a grumpy old man. Mom recently learned that Manx cats do not mature until they reach the age […]

COOPER MURPHY SPARKS A SMILE

April 9, 2018

Sparks: Week #27     Cooper Murphy may not have a huge grin on his face, but whenever I see him, I cannot help but smile. He’s sweet, loving and handsome with a wonderfully expressive face.
