What It Means If You Can Please Help 

We are grateful for & to those who can see fit to “chip-in” & make a donation towards helping AdoptedMom reach this goal & get to the upcoming BlogPaws Conference.

(*See blue link at bottom left of blog page)

We have been trying to raise the necessary funds through business/corporate sponsorship as was done last year; but so far have been politely turned down.

AdoptedMom got so much out of attending last year, she wants to repeat in June 2012.

A Word About AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog

AdoptedMomToChazz is first and foremost a “pet parent” who adopted ChazzTheDog out of a rescue situation, and provided a forever home.

Inspired by this dog and relying on her writing skills – she started her blog http://www.adoptedmomtochazzthedog.wordpress.com

The blog is an evolving “work in progress” that strives to provide interesting content, valuable Product Reviews, and most recently a platform for Guest Bloggers, Animal Charities, and Shelters to get their message out. In addition, the AdoptionWorld&RescueReport page publishes individual accounts of dog rescue and adoption that are poignant, uplifting stories of triumph.

Previous Experience

Last year AdoptedMom co-created a group within the BlogPaws community, known as “BlogPaws Newbie Meet ‘N Greet.” It was formed to specifically address the questions & concerns of first time attendees to a BlogPaws conference. This is an ongoing group, that as of January2012 boasts 35 members. Phenomenal!

AdoptedMom was a Sponsored Pet Blogger to last year’s BlogPaws2011 Conference held in Tyson’s Corner , Virginia. It was her first conference in the pet world, and it was a terrific experience.

The educational sessions were informative & very valuable. Widgets, copywrite & FTC updates, contest & giveaway guidelines, driving traffic to your blog, SEO, branding  & many, many more interesting, onpoint offerings. The networking aspect was plentiful. Putting faces with names of people you have come to know on Twitter, Facebook, Triberr, Klout, and at #NipClub pawpawtys was a blast!

And the socializing: Sharing meals, meeting animal lovers from all over the country, telling storeis & learning things from each other was a benefit they didn’t list in the brochure!

What You Get In Exchange For Patronage

In less than 12 months, the AMTCTD blogsite has put down its tender roots  in the pet blogging community.From its’ original scope of a narrative about the adventures of Chazz and his adopted person – it has grown in significant ways:

  • We are being regularly approached to do our signature, quality Product Reviews.
  • Nov/Dec 2011 Adoption World & Rescue Report was launched.
  • We have successfully partnered with Pure Mutt, Inc., Rock & Rawhide, and other private parties to bring awareness to the issues of dog homelessness, mixed breed shelter adoptions, catastrophic lack of supplies, blankets, toys for shelter dogs – and other issues important to the collective consciousness of all pet lovers.

Donations as generous as $5 are gratefully accepted and will bring us  one step closer to our goal of getting AdoptedMom to the BlogPaws Conference in June at Salt Lake City.
