in It IS all about me, Life in Ottawa

Since 2009, give or take a year, Lynn Jatania’s labour of love Blog Out Loud Ottawa (BOLO) has been forcing otherwise reticent bloggers out of their comfort zone and on to the stage to share their favourite blog posts of the preceding year. It’s always been one of the highlights of the year for me, offering a chance to connect in person with people on whom I have enduring cyber-crushes, and to hear new voices I’ve somehow managed to overlook.

I’m extra excited about BOLO this year because, for the first time since I infamously flashed the audience back in 2010, they’re letting me back on stage. Not only that, but they’re letting me be the emcee for the evening!

Did you know that since 2014 BOLO is an official event of the Ottawa International Writers Festival? This year, BOLO will take place at Christ Church Cathedral (414 Sparks Street) next Tuesday, April 28 starting at 6:45 pm.

Curious about who will be reading? You can see bios of all ten bloggers on the BOLO blog. I’ve had a sneak peek of what’s in store, and I promise you that this will be an amazing night filled with tender sighs and raucous laughter and just about everything in between.

Will I see you there? Or maybe given my misadventures on stage back in 2010, perhaps the question should be “how much of ME will you see there?”

Can’t wait to see you! (However much of you you care to display). I’m wearing a bra with purple on it!

LOL Allison, yay purple! 🙂

You know what I just realized? Not only will it be your birthday Sarah, but if a certain hockey game goes a certain way, it could also very well be the same night as a very exciting game 7. Fingers crossed!

that’s awesome, I didn’t even know Ottawa had this event. Very cool! I think I may check out the writer’s festival this year. Congrats for emcee’ing the event… sounds like tons of fun!
