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 […]
The Good Earth Food and Wine Co. – Wine Country Ontario tour
Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit the Niagara wine region with Wine Country Ontario during my Blissdom Canada conference. I have already written about my first stop of the wine excursion, if you missed that post you should be sure to pop back and read it as well. Our second stop came later […]
Flat Rock Cellars – Wine Country Ontario tour
Raise your hand if you love wine… While in Toronto for Blissdom Canada last weekend, I had the opportunity to take a wine tour out to Niagara with Wine Country Ontario. It was all part of the Blissdom conference programming – a chance to go on an excursion of our choice. Now, I won’t lie, […]
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 […]
BlogHer ’12 – the official recap post
You can’t fly to New York to attend a conference of 5000 women, be addressed by none other than President Obama by live video feed, and eat lunch “with” Martha Stewart and Katie Couric without being a tad overwhelmed.

How to find the best “swag” at BlogHer ’12
Excitement is running high as BlogHer ’12 draws near. Everyone is talking about the parties, how much swag they came home with last time – and you know everyone is out shopping to be sure they are ready for all the glam and glitz of New York City. I booked my flights last night and […]
A perfectly imperfect Blissdom Canada
Inspiration struck Toronto this past weekend, and I was lucky enough to be right in the middle of some of the smartest, most committed women in online media. I attended Blissdom Canada ‘11 at the Hilton Toronto, and like last year, the anticipation ran high. How could a meeting of this much heart and wisdom […]
Sweet moments by the sea
Music fills the air, and everything smells like flowers and sugar. I am in a small crowd that has gathered to watch musicians play outside, in a small seaside area near our hotel in San Diego. Locals, tourists, men, women, the very old and the very young, gathered together in music. We are all captured […]
You are spectacular (a BlogHer recap)
A Sharpie marker. A sticky label. A room filling with people. I started the conference with a nametag that simply stated my first and last names – a polite entry into what would swiftly become a social and inspirational whirlwind of epic proportions. I began my weekend by attending the Women Create Media event at […]
