A couple of days ago I found out that Spike and I (and this blog!) have been made a finalist in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Social Media & Blogging Awards in the Best Unconventional Pet Blog Category!
What are the BlogPaws Awards?
The exciting this about this nomination (other than obviously being even considered) is that BlogPaws is the first and original social media network and conference designed by and for pet bloggers and pet social media influencers, and the awards are the only pet industry awards on which pet bloggers and pet social media influencers are judged on the expertise, performance, and creativity of the entry. Each category is judged by a distinguished panel of professionals, and not by popular vote!
Designed to honor the best of the best in the pet blogging and pet social media influencer world, 56 finalists in 14 categories have been selected by a panel of industry professionals. The 14 winners will be selected by judges based on creativity, expertise, and performance in their respective categories.
BlogPaws hosted its first pet-friendly social media and marketing conference in 2010 and has grown annually into the biggest social media event and conference of its kind with attendees from all over the world.
When are the winners announced?
Winners will be revealed in an exclusive red-carpet ceremony at the ninth pet-friendly BlogPaws Annual Conference, taking place May 18 through May 20 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel. The three-day extravaganza culminates with this posh ceremony. All winners receive a trophy, recognition by peers, social coverage, press alert/coverage, and more.
Unfortunately because I am based in Australia I won’t be able to attend the awards in person, but BlogPaws are live streaming the entire ceremony so I will be watching from home… and you can too!
