I interrupt my latest dog training tips to announce that the first ever Global Animal Blogging Event has come to an end. It's been a blast. The best part for me was watching the newer blogs' friend lists grow and grow along with their comments. All the feedback I've received has been positive and I am grateful for each and all your lovely remarks. I never expected so much personal publicity and links. I was truly humbled and self conscious, but then I got it. It was your way of saying, thank you. Well, I thank you all back! You were wonderful! 

The event may be over, for now, but your links will be revisited as it happens with all of this type of events. Active participants, make sure you post and contact the winners of your free giveaways today. 

One final huge "thank you" to Ann from Zoolatry for making the most appropriate, stylish, classy, smart, and vibrant logo!

An event like G.A.B.E. does not exactly take off during its first year. It picks up momentum and traffic as it becomes established, but I think we did a fine job launching it. I'm looking forward to Global Animal Blogging Event 2011!!!

Cheers to all my friends, old and new, and to the winners!

Twinkie, your grateful hostess
