OMC! Mom has not stopped babbling about the BlogPaws Nashville conference since she got home. I’ve been trying to sort it all out so I can tell you about it, but it hasn’t been easy. She is just all over the place. Fortunately, Flat Me told you about some of the events on Thursday and Friday, so I only have a little more to tell you and lots of photos to show you.
Mom didn’t get home until late afternoon yesterday and she was exhausted so we just visited. This morning, we helped her unpack, finally, so we could see all the goodies she brought home. There are treats and toys and so much more. We sure had fun pulling all the toys out of her suitcases.
I was especially excited to see the special little packages a few of my blogging pals brought me. Thank you Lola the Rescued Cat, Island Cats, The Cat on my Head, and Sometimes Cats Herd You.
Mom talked to most of the brands there, but a lot of them only had products for dogs. We cats had a special place called the Cat Style Lounge where the cat-only products were displayed. Here are some photos from it.
Mom handed out lots of business cards and got lots in return. She’s gotten some of the contacts entered into her Business Card Reader app but still has a lot to do.
Mom loved the educational sessions and meeting the brands to learn about their products, but I think what she enjoyed most was meeting face-to-face the bloggers (some animal, some human) we have been talking to online for the past few months. She also made some new friends. Here’s just a few photos of attendees.
Mom says I should say a big thank you to BlogPaws*, Mars Pet Care and all the other brands who made the conference possible. Next year, BlogPaws will be in Phoenix, AZ. Mom says it is a long drive, 11 to 12 hours, but I will probably get to go! Hope to see a lot of these friends there.
Wishing you a peaceful evening!
* BlogPaws is an online community for pet bloggers and they have an annual conference. This year’s conference was this past weekend in Nashville.

OMC! Plush CK never got a photo op with Flat Christie! I will kill TW. She enjoyed meeting you very much. There’s never enough time to socialize during these conferences.
Mom totally agrees — never enough time.
I think you got the best pig photo I’ve seen thus far. Yay!

You and Cesar are looking good! The Cat Style Lounge was wonderful. I love your collection of photos from the Blog Paws conference. It is a wonderful slideshow!
Hi – Would you believe that when I returned home I found your card and realized we must have met and I didn’t realize it! I guess I was pretty exhausted towards the end with so much new information and just spaced out. Sorry! Hopefully, next year we can actually talk.
I am glad your Mom had a great time. I love those business cards- so cute 🙂

The head peep says she really enjoyed meeting your Mom. It’s good to hear that she got home safely and that you’re enjoying the swag. It’s wonderful putting faces with names at last!
What a terrific slide show, Christy. Mom says she was so tickled to meet your mommy. She has already registered her and Dad for next year; even though, she is not excited about the locale. Mom was supposed to do a BlogPaws wrap up tomorrow, but she is rescheduling for Thursday as she hasn’t even gotten all the swag out yet. We have tried the catnip from the grater…32 paws up!
