This will be the first time DOGthusiast goes to the BlogPaws conference, but the conference has a fantastic history of fun, awards, and lots and lots of pets. I don’t have a conference to “Throwback” about yet, but I can search for some stories of conferences past (and of course, check out the other posts that are part of the ThrowbackThursday blog hop for more – scroll to the bottom to find the links!)
So I’m putting on my spectacles and stretching my Google searching muscles to bring you a bit of research about what happened at previous BlogPaws conferences.
- BlogPaws 2013 was in Tysons Corner, VA
- BlogPaws 2012 was in Salt Lake City, UT
- BlogPaws 2011 was in Tysons Corner, VA
- BlogPaws 2010West was in Denver, CO
- BlogPaws 2010 was in Columbus, OH
I see a pattern. I wonder where next year will be? Will the pattern hold?
The people and pets
There were amazing people to meet, pets to see and photograph, and even flat pets if the dimensional ones are left at home. Here are a few photos of past events, with many more available to see on Flickr.
Oh yeah, and food:
The stories, the awards from BlogPaws of Yesteryear
A lot happened at all of the conferences, to be sure. Here is a recap of 2011, which featured a hurricane, and the awards won by lucky bloggers. You can watch this video recap of the 2012 awards, or check out this photo-rich recap of the 2010West BlogPaws conference. And of course, 2013 winners can be found here.
