Meet & Greet Party Blog Hop!

**This giveaway party is now closed. Please see our winner’s announcement…and an announcement of the next Meet & Greet Party!**

It’s time for the Meet & Greet Party Blog Hop! We’re so excited about meeting new friends on this blog hop that’s designed to introduce everyone to our new CatTipper site! Our earlier post this week explains all the details of the blog hop (including the prize package) but here’s a basic rundown:

  1. Grab a Meet and Greet Party badge for your post from our right sidebar.
  2. Write a quick post introducing yourself and your site…like you would make introductions at a party! Include your social media links, too!
  3. Come back to this post and leave your post URL and the URLs of your social media pages in the linky below (click on the “Click Here to Enter” link below the linky. If you are hosted on a free WordPress account and can’t use Javascript, click here for an alternate linky code.). Each link counts as an entry in our giveaway!
  4. Grab the linky code (just click on “Get the Code Here” below the linky).
  5. Mingle, mingle time! Start party hopping and say hi to others at the party!

We’ll have an advertising prize package for one winner selected at random from the linky to promote your blog, social media accounts or favorite cause on DogTipper, our 10,000-page Lovetripper, and our social media accounts!

Soo…now it’s our turn! Here’s our little party intro! We’re Paris Permenter and John Bigley; we’re a married pair of professional writers. We live in the country with our two dogs and four cats. We’ve been professional writers since we married and, until 2008, we specialized in travel writing. We still do some freelance work and update our guidebooks (our geographic specialties are Jamaica and Texas) but these days we spend most of our time writing about dogs and cats and absolutely love it. We’ve been running websites since 2000 and also publish about romantic travel and Texas Tripper about travel in our home state. Along with and our just-launched, you’ll find us on Twitter at and on our Facebook fan page!

Join the Party!
