Where & When will BlogPaws 2017 take place?
BlogPaws 2017, joined once again by Cat Writers Association Annual Conference, will take place at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel May 18 - 20, 2017
Who should attend BlogPaws 2017?
BlogPaws conferences deliver educational sessions on topics ranging from finding content for your blog, to search engine optimization (SEO), to turning your blog into a business or a book, to holding fund raising events called "Twitter-pawties," to using specialized contest apps on Facebook, how-tos on Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, and much more. While a majority of the attendees publish about — or in some cases AS their pets — the topics apply broadly to anyone who wants to learn more about effective use of social media.
How can that not include you? Not sure yet? Read the advice some of our past attendees shared in the post (and comments), Top 10.5 Reasons to Attend BlogPaws.
Oh, and all our conferences are pet-friendly, of course. So bring along your furry, feathered, finned, shelled or scaled companion animal ... and join us!
