My shot at going to BlogPaws

Today BlogPaws announced a Facebook contest where the winner receives a free trip to this year's gathering, taking place August 25-27 in Tysons Corner, VA.

You guessed it --- I entered.

I have not been to a BlogPaws event before. I'd so much love to be able to meet so many of the people behind many of the blogs I've been reading so long, as well as the chance to meet and talk to various representatives of the pet products that will be featured there. I figure my odds of winning the contest are pretty slim, but not as slim as my chances of going if I didn't enter. After all, stranger things have happened.

You can enter, too. Just head to the BlogPaws Facebook page and click the "contest" button on the left side of the page.

Paws crossed that good fortune might smile on me.

Thanks for tipping us off - guess I may as well enter!

Absolutely, Sam! If I don't win, I'd be thrilled to know that someone who read my post won. Good Luck!

Good luck Vicky,

Hope your wish comes true - Mum saw this contest today too, she'd love to go, but it's when her nephews are here to visit, so bad timing this year, maybe you can tell us all about it?

Hope you're having a fun weekend,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Good luck in the contest. I'm already registered (it's on the right coast so I couldn't resist) and I'd love to meet you in person.

Thanks! If I weren't losing my job this week I'd definitely be there, but given the sudden economic change in my world, the contest is about my only shot at going. Better than no shot at all...

so sorry about your job. I understand, believe me! Lost mine due to downsizing in 2007. Have been unemployed since (because I am OLD!! lol)...husband retired last summer...I sooo know how you feel and I am really sorry!! If it hadn't been for blogging I would have lost what is left of my mind. (((hugs)))

Vicky at PPCT said...

Yep, another victim of the demise of the newspaper industry. On the upside, I'll be able to blog a bit more until I find another job, and I do love blogging :)

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Ugh Vicky!!! That is what happened to me!!! I am sooo sorry!

Have you ever considered freelancing?

I was forced to reinvent myself after that happened. I know how it is though, you devote your life to something and BOOM. My heart goes out to you ((((hugs))))

Pamela said...

Sorry to hear about your job. it is a very tough time.

More time for blogging, huh? How about checking out the blog job board over at Problogger.net. Maybe you can get paid to do some blogging?

Vicky at PPCT said...

Thanks for the tip, Pamela! I'll definitely check it out.
