The post Yvonne wrote yesterday about BlogPaws 2010 "A community of storytellers get together" was such a great way to sum up the event. All I keep telling people is that it was amazing and that I had a blast. No I just have to take a moment here to share some of my own thoughts and reflections on the weekend.
I had the honor of being part of the VIP committee, as well as a speaker, that helped to pull this first-time event together for pet bloggers and pet-lovers. Those of us on the committee got together over another conference call last night where we each took turns giving our assessment of the event while it was still fresh in our minds.
I was one of the last ones to speak so I listened on as everyone stated what a highly-organized event it was, not only for a first-time conference, but it was one of the best conferences some had ever attended. Some shared suggestions on little details that could be improved upon, such as the panel sessions went too long and there wasn't enough time for Q&A's. Well I'm sure many of us have had that experience before.
I was trying to think of something to say that hadn't been said yet. So when it got to my five-minute turn to speak I started out stay that I thought BlogPaws had a great mix of inspirational, keynote speakers, combined with the nuts & bolts of the panel sessions on top of all the great networking and socializing time. But what was really unique, was the people. Everyone was really having a great time, soaking up all the information and trying to meet as many people as possible.
