I am participating in an opportunity to receive a spot as a free sponsor in the #BarktoSchool Twitter Party, to be hosted by Event Barkers on August 12. Event Barkers is a social media promotions group run by http://www.AllThingsDogBlog.com and http://www.DogTipper.com and their team. In exchange for blogging about their party, posting to my Facebook page about the event, and Tweeting about the theme, I will be entered in a drawing to win a free sponsorship. As a sponsor, I will receive 3 weeks of pre-party promotion at several top blogs such as DogTipper.com, AllThingsDogBlog.com, CatTipper.com, MyPetAllergies.com, and 5MinutesforFido.com, and ParisandJohn.com. In addition, I will be mentioned in promotional Tweets by these sites' handles along with @EventBarkers, receive Facebook postings by their sites, and the Twitter Party will encourage guests to visit my site. Event Barkers will even encourage their readers to sign up for my newsletter. I hope you will join the fun by following the hashtag #BarktoSchool. Wish me luck!
In light of the event, I'll let you guys know what #BarkToSchool means for the inhabitants here at My Household Zoo:
- For me? Not much. I've been #BarkToSchool all Summer long. Okay, I take that back - I had last week off. That's still pretty ruff. Oh well, my Associate's Degree is that much closer!
- I babysit my sisters throughout the Summer, so when they get #BarkToSchool, I'll have more time to volunteer at the zoo, and do other, personal household zoo duties.
- One thing that will actually be ending for me rather than starting is my AmeriCorps term! Yup, that's why the blog's been so quiet. Rest assured, though. I'll be done in mid-August.
I hope the transition goes smooth for all of you that live in a student-inclusive family. I also hope I'll be seeing all of you at the #BarkToSchool twitter party! It will be tons of fun, I promise!
