Learn what’s possible on the web as it relates to you, your pet and your business at The National Pet Social Media Conference – BarkWorld Expo. Be inspired, network and elevate your social “petworking” skills. Whether you’re an average pet owner or a blogger, you’ll be amazed with the information you’ll walk away with, including a roadmap for business you can put into effect immediately.

Established in 2009, the BarkWorld Conference & Expo is the only pet social media conference covering social media, lifestyle and technology as it relates to pet owners and businesses. The 2012 annual conference will focus on many topics, including: photography, podcasting, blog & monetization, mobile applications and technology startups.

Innovative ways to use social media in the animal niche abound! Joining more than 300 pet-loving bloggers and social media pet-repreneurs, the social media geek in me is eager to hear Keynotes from the fine folks behind Twitter, the ASPCA, and the HBO Documentary Madonna of the Mills. And then there are the …

Pet Lifestyle and Social Media Sessions:
  •  What’s Super Healthy & Has 6 Leg
  • Agility, Your Dog & Social Media
  • Digital Scrapbooking for Pet Lovers
  • From Modern Cat to Dog Milk; Inspiration for the Stay-at-Home Pet
  • Google+, Pinterest


I’ll be speaking, too, about ways to build online relationships to benefit a cause and the tools that make that possible. Explor ways to use social media for social good! Have questions on that? Comment below and I’ll incorporate answers into my presentation (sponsored by Iams).

And, when I’m not making delectable, healthy pet treats for you from The Honest Kitchen on the Expo floor, I’ll be hitting up many of the fun and unique features this conference has to offer. There are plenty of sessions to get you started if you’re new to social media and blogging and there’s plenty for those already in the know who want to learn more.

  1. I didn’t know the contest had been extended! I assumed it was already over and I’d lost. Good to know I still have a chance!

    • To be honest, I hadn’t realized either until you said something. The web page says the contest ends August 17th, but they say – just a few lines down – that they’ll announce winners on the 14th – which was yesterday. Hmmm. I wish you luck, whatever the case may be!

  2. I so wish I was going! (even though I do know I’ll enjoy my trip to Anaheim all the same). I hope someone videos that cooking segment though…

    • Have a wonderful time, Jodi! And I’ll be sure to bring my video camera. Hopefully I won’t have to film it myself, but I’m willing to capture some of the ridiculous fun for you. LOL.

  3. Looking forward to having a blast with you in Atlanta!
