Hello to all you wonderful readers!
I’ll be attending the Fourth Annual Ontario Book Blogger Meet-Up this coming Saturday. This will be my first year attending and after seeing pictures (and blog posts) of past experiences, it just sounds like a cool time with wonderful people in this niche community. Especially true is the fact that in my little pocket in the blogosphere, I only know of a few Canadian bloggers (I just haven’t discovered most of them tbh), so it’ll be an interesting experience to meet other voices within this region.
The longer I linger on this post, the more I feel excitedly apprehensive…? I don’t know, I’m kind of going into this blind and seeing what happens. I thought about preparing blog-based business cards but with it being a week until the event, time isn’t my friend. In truth, I didn’t even know about this event until two weeks-ish ago so cranking out a solid design I’d be happy with isn’t likely.
That being said: I’d like to give major thanks to C.J. @ ebookclassics for letting me have her ticket in lieu of her heading out of town—I will eat all the foods, experience all the awkward jitters, and vomit all the words for the both of us. (Or at least I’ll try.)
So, yeah, since you unwillingly followed me on my journey to the Toronto International Book Fair, I figured why not for this event too. Do tell if you’ve attended similar community meet-ups in your area. I’d love to hear about your experiences and random bananas that I should do/bring/what-have-you prior to walking in those doors!
On another note–for all of my Philippine-ish area friends:
There’s a book blogger/reader meet-up this Sunday (July 26, 2015) from 1-4pm at Book and Borders Café, 281 Tomas Morato, Diliman, Quezon City. Click here to view the full details.
If you decide to attend the PH meet-up, I’ll pass along some virtual hugs and word vomits if you greet and address someone in the crowd named “Shelumiel” as “Lumi”. Thanks!)
