This year I attended BlogPaws as a newbie. I learned a few lessons. In Part I I shared tips dealing with your personal comfort. Here are some other tips.
Contact other bloggers before you go
Remember my fantasy of meeting hundreds of other bloggers? It didn’t happen. I found out after I got home that there were several pet bloggers there that I wanted to meet and didn’t even see. Since these people are PET Bloggers, we would recognize them by their pets but not necessarily by their face. No one was wearing a sign saying “I am from ____ blog”.
Yes, it DOES say it on their badge but you have to get within two feet of them and squint at their chest to see it ….which is an awkward thing to do to a stranger. Ha, ha.
I did manage to meet a couple of my favorite bloggy friends because I had been in contact with them before the conference. I exchanged phone numbers with them so that we could text each other once we got there to be sure to meet up.
