Words and a welcome
It is an odd thing to reach into quiet, into an absence, long unsure of what may be found. Many days passed, and more significantly, many words unwritten. Time to begin anew. Writing again after a long hiatus is like setting foot on a rope bridge for the first time. Feels shaky, yet […]
Ontario wine chat and #freemygrapes
If you hang around Twitter regularly, you might have noticed a little something called the Ontario Wine Chat. This isn’t the first time I’ve written about the wine chat – here’s where #ONwinechat started. It’s been great fun so far, and I’m amazed at how much we have covered in five months. Searching the hashtag […]
What is the Ontario wine chat (#ONWineChat)?
You may have noticed me getting a little excited lately over something called #ONWineChat. It’s a great project that has come together by way of a random collaboration and shared love of wine…and Twitter. So what is a Calgary girl doing smack in the middle of a Twitter chat that puts a spotlight on Ontario […]
Privacy in a social world
Those of us who live with one foot in an online world, and one foot firmly grounded in real life will eventually spend time thinking about privacy. And if you haven’t already, you will now, yes? How do you manage your privacy online? Perhaps you worried about it when first getting online. You guarded your […]
Update on the Sask film industry
My Saskatchewan includes the Saskatchewan film industry. Does yours? Today, again, I am supporting the Saskatchewan Film Industry. They have taken to social media to share their story, to update their communities on what has been happening lately, and to call for change. I’ve pulled together a few links to help others see why this […]
Life, death, and the grace to face both
And so it is that things come to an end. Just as my heart was lifted by a story nearly two years ago, so does it break a little to know it is over. If you’ve been here reading a while, you might remember that once I wrote a post called “Minivans, Mammaries and […]
Toronto recap – what do we stand for?
Four days in Toronto. It feels like I jump into a different existence, then trip back into real life Sunday night. It feels a world away from my everyday, and yet, I blink and it’s over. Where to start? There is so much to try to share – it’s all swirling around in memory and […]
A community becomes real at Blissdom Canada
You could argue that an online community is just as real as one that exists in real life. And in some ways, you would be right. We exist, we exchange, we communicate. We work and create in this online space as in any other. So why would we go to so much trouble to come […]
Today’s Parent and a little Bernard Callebaut
Yesterday I had a very indulgent moment. I was in the air, flying to Toronto for a few days of sheer bliss and inspiration. I always get so much out of conferences, but beyond that, the number of people I will be around who I really like (okay, some of you I flat out adore) […]
Conference crazy? Choose calm instead.
It’s conference time again, and whether you are a Toronto local or flying in for the weekend, you know it feels a little crazy. I’m coming in for She’s Connected 2012 and Blissdom Canada ’12 and can’t believe it’s already October. How did it come so quickly? I’m new to SCCTO, but this is my […]
