At the end of the conference, a generous portion of the BlogPaws 2010 proceeds will be donated to two animal rescues or shelters, chosen from nominations made by attendees.

Event sessions will cover topics pet bloggers have been asking for - like search engine optimization, social media strategies, advertising, product reviews, book publishing, business blogging and more.

The pet community in the blogosphere is large and growing, full of passionate bloggers who treasure their pets and have expressed the desire to meet face-to-face with each other and with brands, something no one has yet offered them.

The founders of BlogPaws are successful pet bloggers, social media experts and career marketers, committed to this untapped niche. Caroline Golon writes the popular animal rescue fundraising blog, and Yvonne DiVita and Tom Collins write and manage the sponsored pet blog, The three met at a blog conference and recognized this unmet need in the online pet community. After talking with their fellow pet bloggers, they decided to create the Blogpaws 2010 conference.

“Pet bloggers are among the most vocal and enthusiastic people on the Web today and the value of meeting face to face with one’s online network is priceless,” says Golon. “As digitally-driven as we’ve all become, there is still no substitute for live interaction.”

DiVita agrees. “Clearly, there’s a pent up demand for an event like this,” she said. “The response from the blogger community and pet brands has been incredible. We’re looking forward to a terrific event.”

BlogPaws 2010 will provide pet products companies with relevant insight into today’s digital marketing and the opportunity to network with an online community of pet owners who are passionate about the products they use and the people with whom they connect.

“The event offers value for a variety of types of bloggers and businesses,” says Collins. “Whether you’re blogging for fun, profit or on behalf of a company, BlogPaws will provide new insights and new networks to start conversations with. It truly has something for everyone involved in the online pet community.”
