I blog out loud, Ottawa. Do you?
Last year, I attended my first-ever Blog Out Loud Ottawa, an event that gives Ottawa-area bloggers a chance to let their voices out, rather than words on a screen. Twenty or so bloggers stand in front of a crowd and read one of their favourite blog posts of the last year. And they do it to a packed house.
Last year, though I submitted a couple of posts from the Brownfoot Journal, I wasn't picked to read at the event. Instead, the founder and organizer of the event, Lynn Jatania, asked me to be the emcee for the evening. And I have to say it was a lot of fun.
This year, the 2012 installment of BOLO is going to be held on Thursday, June 14, at the Arrow & Loon, in the Fifth Avenue Court (Bank and Fifth). And this year, I won't be acting as emcee.
I'll be reading.
If you can, come out to hear readings from some extremely talented writers. And from me.
For more information, go to the BOLO blog.
