Last night John and I headed over to the Metroblogging Meetup in Stanley Park [met].
The potluck was yummy, the people were friendly and it was really great to see all these bloggers you’ve probably read but never met before.
Sometimes you think Vancouver’s become so plastic and fake (whether your nemesis be lululemon, snack dogs, poofy boots or some other ugly monsters [mg]) and it kinda gets you down. Then you attend a gathering like this, with people from all over, photographers, bloggers, entrepreneurs and unemployed – all with humour, humility, class and the one thing in common that brought you together. It kinda restores your faith in the people of this city.
There were a few of us “born n raised BC’ers” there and it was also neat to hear everyone’s story of how they came to be a blogger in Vancouver. One thing I’m taking away from the evening is that I am now determined to blog about that one GREAT restaurant in Surrey (for Ryan) just let me find it first.
