MODERATOR: Welcome to the 2016 Katie VS. Waffles - #BlogPawsOrBust Debate. Today the GLOGIRLY Cats are vying for a spot along side Glogirly at the BlogPaws® Social Media & Pet Blogging Conference this June in Phoenix, Arizona.
Each cat will be given an opportunity to highlight the top 3 reasons they'd like to attend the conference. With room for only one cat on the plane with Glogirly, it's a winner-take-all competition. So the big question is, "Who's going to be packing???"
Let's get ready for some fireworks and welcome our candidates, Katie and Waffles.
WAFFLES: Don't I just have to ring you bell to win?
KATIE: That's not how this works, Waffles. Now we're each supposed to tell everyone 3 reasons why we should get to go to the BlogPaws conference with Glogirly.
WAFFLES: Oh, well that's easy. I should go because I'm the most handsome. And there'll be LOTS of ladies there.
KATIE: How about you wait for the moderator to ask the questions?
MODERATOR: Let's start with the orange cat. Waffles, please tell us one reason you're looking forward to attending the big conference in the desert.
WAFFLES: Well I hear they have the best CAT TREES ever. Really tall ones!
KATIE: Waffles, you do realize that's a cactus, don't you? Climbing that thing isn't going to end well.
MODERATOR: Katie, your response?
KATIE: The BEST part of the conference is meeting new friends and catching up with our blogging pals. That's what Glogirly and I look forward to most. There's something very special about gathering with like-minded, animal-loving, fun-seekers. As bloggers, we spend a lot of time huddled with laptops and sharing virtual conversations. So the opportunity to connect in person is a rare and wonderful thing. Plus, my fan girls love seeing me rock my pink harness.
MODERATOR: The next question is for Waffles. What would you most like to learn at the conference?
WAFFLES: I like the great outdoors. You know, mountains and horses and stuff. So I want to learn how to ride a horse.
KATIE: *sigh* You are not bringing that thing to the hotel.
KATIE: Another huge highlight of the conference is the opportunity to attend a wide variety of learning sessions. Blogging is constantly changing and there's always something new and exciting on the horizon. Even us cats can learn a few new tricks. Glogirly and I would like to up our social media game with sessions focusing on how to create viral content. We're also excited to learn about Etsy and how to open up our own shop. We've got to come up with new ways to support Waffles' chicken habit after all.
MODERATOR: Waffles, it's clear you're excited about horses and cacti. Is there anything else you're looking forward to experiencing? Perhaps some water sports?
MODERATOR: Katie, are you into aquatics as well?
KATIE: Yeah–no. I prefer to keep my paws dry. Networking with brands is a big part of the conference and no one likes shaking a wet paw. In fact, Glogirly and I hope to meet some new brands at the conference. We hear this year's Cat Lounge will be full of exciting products we'll be able to share with our friends and readers.
MODERATOR: I'd like to thank our candidates, Katie and Waffles, for their insightful answers. Special thanks to our friends at BlogPaws too. Glogirly is really looking forward to this year's conference and all the creative inspiration it holds.
Just one question remains.
Katie or Waffles?
Who do YOU think should go?
