Every October, this west coast Canadian girl boards a flight to Toronto, bound for some Canadian bliss — and I don’t mean poutine and maple syrup. No, this Canadian bliss doesn’t even involve hockey or bacon either. This is bloggy bliss — Canadian style!
In October 2010, Susan and I were honored to be a part of the Blissdom Canada Advisory Board that helped bring Blissdom to Canada. Until that point, there had not been a women’s blog conference up here in the Great White North.
Blissdom Canada was a huge success in its inaugural year and I have been thrilled to be a part of each fantastic event since, either as a board member, speaker, community leader, etc. This year saw some changes in the leadership, with Jennifer Powell and Shannon Mischuk taking over the reigns. Jennifer, Shannon, and their fabulous team did a great job, hosting an impeccable event filled with inspiration, education and relationship building.
I love the chance to spend time with my Canadian colleagues and develop stronger relationship with Canadian brands. Blissdom Canada has been an integral part of developing the Canadian blogging community, as well as educating brands about the benefits and opportunities of working with bloggers. Canada is rocking it up here!
If you saw me at Blissdom Canada 2013, it was most likely while I was taking photos. I was capturing all that Canadian bliss so Susan and I could make it even more magical with the power of PicMonkey!
