Attention all iRe-paw-ters

CNN producers speak at plenty of industry conferences, from SXSW to ONA. But I'm presenting at a conference in Atlanta this month that will definitely be a first for me, and maybe even for CNN: My audience won't be solely human.


Nope, it's not a Trekkie convention, it's BarkWorld! Pet bloggers, writers and social media aficionados -- and their animal companions -- will gather in Atlanta from September 29 to October 1. I'll be introducing them to the wonderful world of iReport and explaining how they can use their expertise and love of animals to report on bona fide news (and I swear that's not a pun on "bone" or "Fido." Really, I do.)


So if you're an animal lover in Atlanta, consider joining me at  BarkWorld. It would be lovely to see a few friendly iReport faces in the  crowd! And if you're not in the ATL, never fear: there are plenty of  adorable animals on iReport for you to peruse. May I direct you to my  blog post of the cutest iReports ever? (I can't help but hypothesize that post may be the reason I was asked to speak at BarkWorld in the first place.)


I'm super-excited to meet all the dogs and cats who attend (yes, they're invited) and their human friends, and to turn them all into iReporters. Now I just have to decide whether to bring my own computer-savvy kitty, Ella.

So jealous! That is right up my alley. If Atlanta was closer to me I'd get a press pass and go. Have fun! Tell Victoria Stillwell she is awesome.
