#Pawties and Events are where anipals and humans get together for a Twitterin’ good time. In their tweets they use an introductory hashtag (#) so everyone who wants to join in the fun can easily find them by searching Twitter for #(fill in the blank) pawty or #(event name). #Pawties and Events is where you will find out about the #Pawties taking place on Twitter and where I will point you to the official The Anipal Times #Pawty & Events Calendar. Remember to check out the calendar so that you can find the dates and times to mix and mingle with anipals. Now, let’s read about some of the #pawties and events that happened by the deadline for this article (oh, and if you don’t know how to #pawty, don’t worry I got you covered—just read this).
#AAAC Pawty Saturday 19 May 2012. Hosted by @AnipalAwards and @BlogPaws, with pawty planning and all around assistance par excellence from @NipClub, the big event to honor the artistic, divine and even sublime anipal graphic artists rocked the Twitter feed—helping to get everyone’s paws pumping in anticipation of the upcoming BlogPaws. #AAAC was a fun time for anipals to gather and celebrate their artistic side—as well as recognize the talents of their anipal colleagues. Pawty attendees donned their most fanciful avatars and had a fun time all day Saturday, pawtying under the #NipClub hashtag and watching the official #AAAC graphic artist awards ceremonies, held at 2 PM and 5 PM EDT, USA.
According to #AAAC hosts, “One thing the Twitter community is not short of is awesome graphics—yet most of us really aren’t that good at making them. A select few anipals are experts and share their talents with all of us, making us great avatars, fun pictures for our blogs and pawties etc. They make our Twitter anipal community even brighter and more fun. We’re not talking about just having cool pictures and a neat avatar here and there—we are talking about truly amazing works of art!” These great, artistic and fun graphic artist anipals were recognized during the #AAAC awards ceremony—and believe it or not, there were so many, we all felt honored and humbled to be able to set a part a day aside to see and share their fabulous talents. To see a list of all of the anipals who received an #AAAC graphic artist award, click here for the list of recipients and click here to see the awards—and thanks to @BlogPaws, anipals got to play games and quizzes for some great prizes and donations in their name to Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, USA.
#AAAC was truly a fun time—and a great way to start the countdown to @BlogPaws conference, which is right around the corner 21-23 June 2012, in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. If you find yourself looking for a great atmosphere where you can ask questions and learn new techniques, tips, and just plain have fun with fellow pet bloggers, pet enthusiasts, anipal-type social media users—you’ll likely want to check out @BlogPaws—it’s not too late, you can still register for the yearly @BlogPaws conference—just click here. Thanks to @AnipalAwards, @NipClub and @BlogPaws for the great #AAAC pawty—there’s always a fun and happy time when the #NipClub crew throws a bash!
