I’m not just a girl who loves dogs. I’m a girl who loves dogs and wants every dog to have a fantastic life with his (or her) people. So I blog about how you can make your dog’s life as magnificent as caninely possible.
To that end, I’m always on the lookout for ways to hone my blogging skills. Let’s face it, I could have the best information in the universe, but if no one knows about it, it doesn’t do your dog much good, does it?
I’m headed to the beautiful city of Chicago for three days of conferencing to learn how to best get my information out to you.
This isn’t a dog conference, so I’m a little out of my element. Honesty time: I’m really out of my element. This conference is huge. The speakers are huge (Sheryl Sandberg, The Pioneer Woman, Weelicious, Guy Kawasaki, just to name a few).
Many of the women attending are moms, they identify themselves as “mommy bloggers.” I don’t have a whole lot in common with mommy bloggers, unless they have dogs as part of the family, too. There will be a contingent of style bloggers. Lord, unless dog hair and dog slobber are stylish, I don’t have a whole lot in common with those folks either. The other big block of attendees are food bloggers. The only thing I have in common with those folks in that I like to eat the food they blog about.
But here’s what’s cool about BlogHer: we all have passion in common. Bloggers blog because they’re passionate about something. My passion is dogs and I may be sitting next to someone whose passion is Manolo Blahnik’s. And that’s pretty cool.
Blogging unites people who might not ever find another common element between them.
