Yes, that’s me on the cover of the 24 Hours, “right above the shirtless man with a hose,” as my husband stated.
Even though Blogathon 2008 will not officially be happening, the good folks at Day of Blogs have picked up the reigns and I have decided to spearhead the Vancouver effort. If you are a blogger interested in writing for 24 hours straight for a good cause, please sign up on the wiki. On July 26 keep your eyes on the internets for some entertaining content from a bunch of great causes (mine will be announced soon). Feel free to contact me for more information or questions about donating.
Coming up July 16th we have WordCamp Fraser Valley, which will feature several speakers (myself included) with topics ranging from community blogging, switching platforms, and code.
Raul Pacheco – I Switched to WordPress, and So Can You!
Kerry Sauriol – Building a Community Blog the Simple WordPress Way.
Kulpreet Singh – Secure your WordPress Blog from Hackers.
Rebecca Bollwitt – Custom Page and Sidebar Templates for WordPress.
John Chow – Evil Ways to Increase Traffic to your Blog.
Now for some quick links from this morning’s headlines:
Finally, it’s not often enough we get to take time for ourselves. I’ve been told by several people lately that I need to take more “me” time especially when I get a wicked cold like the one I’m currently battling. As a result I’m going to fully enjoy the sunny weekend outdoors and spend time with family (getting in some quality Surrey time) – have a great weekend everyone!
