Final Day at Blog Paws 2012

Kat Smith of Petco w/ Rick Rockhill & Sheldon
The final day at Blog Paws was quite busy. The schedule was packed with so many interesting things it was difficult to choose which things I would do in each time slot. I attended multiple learning sessions to expand my knowledge of social media marketing, and learned a number of new tips and tricks I can use in my own strategies and tactics online. I utilized time in between sessions to network with folks I'd met over the past few days and some new friendships as well. 

The morning breakfast keynote address, by Lena West was especially strong. Ms West is the founder of 'Influence Expansion' and is a peer recognized social media consultant, blogger and journalist. She has a commanding presence and really delivered some excellent content to start the day off on the right foot. I tweeted out multiple quotes from her presentation. One quote in particular I found quite poignant was this: 'You are the sum total o the 5 people you spend your time with' Think about will amaze you.

Sheldon Gryffindor wore his new red silk bow tie

The big fun of Saturday was the Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards event in the evening. Once all sessions had ended and vendor booths were closed, it was time to party like animals, so to speak. A red carpet leading into the ballroom made the evening a bit more special.  Many people dressed up a bit fancier than their day-time conference clothes. Sheldon was no exception, he wore a new red silk bow tie, which looked great against his hair, don't you think?
This photo of Sheldon and I was taken by a friend, I just had to include it in this post because Sheldon is just so cute standing up next to me. He was a lot of fun to be with all week, and helped me network and meet lots of new bloggers too! 

I'm so happy I attended Blog Paws, it was well worth it both professionally and personally.
