I’ve decided to do a photo post for my official “year in review” but going through my iPhoto and Flickr archives I realized it would be impossible to only choose one photo to represent each month. I’ve decided to do this recap of 2008 in two posts, January to June then July to December (which will follow later) each with photos representing each month.
There was also my flash trip to Toronto to be a part of the victorious Team Blogger on CBC’s television show, Test the Nation. I met some amazing bloggers and podcasters from across the country (and traveled with some too) and got to meet Samantha Bee (our assigned celebrity and blogger).
February 2008 Archives
I visited my friend Keira’s favourite little place to play in the snow for the first time last February. Mount Washington over on Vancouver Island is pretty darn amazing and I had a wonderful time hanging out in her hometown to boot.
This was the month for Northern Voice where I live blogged, updated wikis, wore a sheriff badge, was on a panel, and captured my friend Dave’s now internet-famous talk, “F*ck Stats, Make Art“.

March 2008 Archives
In March I went to the launch of the Union Gospel Mission’s website, John and I had our photo in the Wall Street Journal (thanks to Darren) and we took a weekend getaway to lovely and refreshing Saltspring Island.
April 2008 Archives
In April I liveblogged the inaugural Bridging Media Conference that was a great success. I was on a panel at the Massive Technology Show, I liveblogged the Open Web Conference, and I was a speaker (and liveblogged) WordCamp Vancouver.
I met Pauline for the first time, took a trip to Osoyoos with John (where I wrote about Golden Beaver and Burrowing Owl Wineries), I watched Trevor Linden play in his last NHL game, and I took the time to address Cyberbullying.

June 2008 Archives
John updated my WordPress theme,and I sponsored Joomla! Day in Vancouver.
If you’d like to continue this as a meme please do so, I’d love to see 2008 in photos by others as well.
Stay tuned for part two (July to December 2008) either later today or tomorrow as it’s action-packed with celebrity meetings, and tales of my plunge into self employment.
