this time last year, this blog was a few months old. barely kind of there.
through my network of photography - slash- twitter - slash - social media type friends i heard about *blog out loud*.
the year previous, in 2009, a group of ottawa area bloggers got together to share their writing through readings. a simple and wonderful idea.
so, being the joiner that i am, i begged dani of postcards from the mothership to make sure she was there so i had someone to sit with while i immersed myself in this new to me ( not to the area ) world of blogging...
what was i rewarded with?
an evening of thoughtful, funny, moving, delicious, assertive, wonderful words:). it was terrific.
i even, gasp, wrote about it here.
so guess what?
it is that time again!
the 2011 edition of BOLO is being held this Thursday, July 7th at The Preston at 7 P.M.
all the relevant deets can be found here - awesome BOLO info - as well as information about who will be reading and the photographers who will be sharing their work ( i am included among this group).
you do not need to blog to enjoy this evening. It is a great night to get out and meet some of the creative types around the ottawa area ( although the group does pull from far and wide ). the readers cover topics from parenting to food to politics to geeks...to the infamous red bra...
i even got flashed:).
well, we all did.
you never know what might happen...
so come out and definitely say hi if you do:)
