Miss604 Covers Vancouver 2010

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last month I talked about where everyone will be during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. I plan on staying around town, making one quick day trip to Whistler, being extremely busy covering events for you all to enjoy, and watching the best in the world excel in their sport.

I wanted to take a moment to profile where my coverage can be found during the Olympics.

BC Living Magazine:
Over the next four weeks I will be providing original articles on various facets of the Olympics for BC Living. In their exclusive Games section they have everything from athlete profiles to TV listings and sporting news. You can read my first article that was posted last week that has some of my Opening Ceremony predictions.

True North Media House:
A collaboration of any and all in social media (bloggers, photographers, podcasters) who want to cover the Olympics their way, on their own sites. This site is a one-stop resource for independent content creators and will have a showcase of all registered reporters’ feeds. My involvement with TNMH will be to rally tweetups, photowalks, and opportunities for folks to gather and create content for themselves. Be sure to follow @TNMH on Twitter or my main account @Miss604.

Vancouver Access 2010:
A site put together by Robert Scales who has years of experience covering the Olympics in a social media capacity. Along with his team and co-developer Nadia Aly, they have already put up one of the most comprehensive “Free Attractions” posts for the Olympics that I’ve seen to date. I’ll be cross-posting some existing Miss604.com content in the form of a weekly digest and sharing photos. They’re @VancouverAccess on Twitter.

News 1130:
Over the next few weeks I’ll be checking in with News 1130am. I may have some radio coverage and will be checking out the operations of the official radio station of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics next week. Throughout the Games, if you have Twitter updates you’d like to get on their radar, tag them with #1130.

Follow along every day for about 2-5 entries about life in Vancouver (as usual) as well as Olympics coverage. You can subscribe to my Vancouver 2010 Olympics feed if you just want Games-related posts. My photos will all be on Flickr and I’ll also have up to the minute updates on Twitter @Miss604.

Olympic-ified City

For a quick preview this week I’ll be attending/covering the CODE launch party, the grand opening of House of Switzerland Canada (stay tuned for Tweetup information), and attending The Blue Dragon.

Next Tuesday I’ll be riding along with the Torch Relay in Surrey, heading the BC Hydro Power Smart Village and ending the night at the Richmond O Zone — it’ll be a long day but just the beginning of the many adventures yet to come this month.

    Congratulations. It’s so cool you got press creds. I’m curious to see what kind of access you get with your level of credentials. Will you be able to attend any event you like? What are the limitations if any?
