How the Pet Bloggers Blog Hop Came About

To explain how the Pet Bloggers Blog Hop came about I need to start at the beginning. I was basically thrown head first into the Pet Blogging world. My Blog Two Little Cavaliers started out as something I was doing for myself. It was a way to start to focus on the positive and happy things in my life while Davinia continued to recover from being viciously attacked.

I didn’t have a clue about the active Pet Blogging and Social Media Community though I knew there was a group of pet people on twitter who I said hello to once I a while and even crashed a #Pawpawty once not understanding what it was (sorry guys).

 Then I entered a contest to win tickets to some event called BlogPaws thinking it would be fun. I mean I like animals and get along with pet people so it couldn’t be all that bad and might just be something fun to do to get away for a few days. I didn’t win the tickets but was approached by the Pedigree Pet Adoption people who were willing to send my blog to the event. I guess someone saw potential in my little two month old blog that I didn’t even know was there and a week later I was at BlogPaws in Ohio.

For any of you who were there you know first hand how full of information, networking, and fun the event was. To say I was overwhelmed meeting everyone and being introduced to their blogs for the first time would be an understatement.

I cannot tell you all how grateful I am for the experience of being there but I also knew for myself that I wanted a way to stay connected to my new friends and continue to network once BlogPaws was over. Then I came up with the idea that if Blog Hops worked for the mommy bloggers why not have an ongoing hop for the Pet Bloggers. I knew that I would need co-hosts in order to really get the idea out there so I decided on Neil from Life With Dogs (who made our Blog Hop Badge) and Salina who helps Baby Patches write Confessions of the Plume. I now consider Neil a friend and mentor who I speak with on a regular basis via email and phone calls. 

Through the Blog Hop I have met so many new people and learned so much from Pet Bloggers all over the world. I hope you all have as well. If you have never joined us come and play this weekend and say hello to your hosts and then visit as many other blogs as you are able. We would love to have you!

Thank you so much to Cleo and her mommy Sharon for allowing me to be a guest blogger and for sharing the story about how the Pet Bloggers Blog Hop came about.

Can’t wait to see you all in Denver at BlogPaws West,
