The Metroslave & The Vancouver Blogging Females

Metroblogging T-ShirtMy Metroblogging T-shirt arrived today. Being a shiny new City Captain, I’m just getting my feet wet and getting used to a few more responsibilities. Being privy to about 30 emails a day on the worldwide captains email list isn’t the most lovely thing for my inbox but it is interesting to see what’s going on in say, the Bangalore or Manilla blogging world.

The next Vancouver Metblogs meetup is December 12 at the Shawarma place in the Crystal near Metrotown, all are welcome [mbv].

Around the Vancouver girlie blogs (although the content isn’t girlie, and the bloggers are all fine women)…

Fellow Metroblogger Maktaaq shares the toils and frustrations of work, dreams, finances and novel writing in her usual delightfully amazing and detailed fashion [Maktaaq].

Gus Greeper is reading Douglas Coupland‘s Microserfs and sparking an interesting comment thread [IfSpockIsEnough]. Basically what are your 7 ideal Jeopardy categories. The next step is to read jPod, which I completed this past summer [ms604]. I still think it grows on me more each time I think about it.

Loxy, being an Oiler-lovin chick, continues to give the Vancouver Canucks second chances at becoming her adopted home-town team, but by the way we’ve been playing lately, it ain’t lookin’ good [YouAreABlog].

Mel from 2BitStudios, making us totally jealous while having awesome snowboarding days at Whistler, has gone country [2bitStudios]. I was at a reunion of sorts with old school pals this summer. One of the girls talked about frequenting the Roxy on Sundays for their country nights. Another turned to the group and said, “Ya know, I always hated country but in high school a teacher told me when I’m in my 20s I’ll learn to love it, and I can totally see that now.” Nooooooooo!

Taraden at Chillaxin has a few words for disgruntled people during the snow storm [Chillaxin]. It seems like everyone’s gone a little nuts this season, what are us sane people to do?

Wynne continues to amaze me (and probably everyone else), if not for the frequent 10-30km runs and marathons, she’s still going strong through winter [EverythingIsConnected] Brrrrrr.

Since doing our first “all live and in person” recording of the Crazy Canucks podcast on Monday, I have to say, I’m even more excited about being a part of such a great group. Of course I cannot praise women bloggers and talk about the Canucks and not mention Alanah of Vancouver Canucks Op Ed. She managed to get a press pass for the Edmonton game (after which, she met up with us) and interviewed Alex Burrows [VCOE].

I’m hoping to continue this link dump of sorts of various Vancouver female bloggers and personal reads, as my blog IS “Miss” 604. I last did one at the end of October but maybe I’ll make this a monthly thing [ms604].
