Every weekend, BlogPaws serves up a healthy dose of the week that was, and oh did we have a very busy week on BlogPaws.
If you are like us, we have so many things to do in the course of a hectic Monday to Friday week, that we love the weekends to catch up and see if we missed anything. We're taking the work out of "work week" and ending your weekend with a bang: Here's all the news in BlogPaws land that you missed this first week of October, 2013:
BlogPaws is ushering in October by celebrating Adopt a Pet month. We encourage everyone to spread the word about adoptable pets in your area, including the pets featured on our Facebook Cover Photo.

An Interest in Pinterest
Are you on Pinterest? Here's where you can connect with other pet bloggers on Pinterest.
How to Tweet for the Pet Blogger
If you've never tweeted or if you rarely tweet you may be wondering why you should and maybe even more importantly how to get started. We have you covered in Twitter land.
Tell Us Your Blog URL
One of the most common questions I am asked is, "What other blogs can I follow" so this discussion will be a permanent house for us to list the blog(s) we manage.
With less than 90 days left to a new year, these next few months are some of the busiest (and most profitable and traffic driving) times of the year. Your readers look to pet bloggers to help guide them through the holidays but also as a source of inspiration, for shopping tips, to connect them to places to go and things to see, and as a credible source of information. Here are preparation how-to's and what to do's!
Blog Hop 101
We get questions galore from folks who want to grow their blog, gain more followers, and get traffic: All of these take time and nurturing. However, you can get a jump start with the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday blog hop. Here's a video tutorial to walk you through!
Don't forget to join us THIS Tuesday, 10/08 for #BlogPawsChat from 8 to 10 pm EST.
