So last night was BOLO. This is the second (?) annual Blog Out Loud - dozens of Ottawa bloggers getting together to listen to volunteers read one (or more) of their entries.

I was pretty amazed at how many people showed up. Twenty-four people read, and I'd guess there were 60 or so people crowded into the room.

It was kind of like picking a link from someone's blogroll at random. Some entries I loved, some weren't my thing. I have a lot more blogs to check out soon, though.

I didn't stay through the whole thing - I needed to get the car home so Wanda could go to work, and I also needed to get some sleep so I could go to work today - but I enjoyed it (although it has been a long time since I've walked into a room where I didn't know anyone - man, that's hard to do).

I will say that everyone I talked to was very nice, and I wish I could remember more than two names. Alas, that's not how my brain works.


  1. I'll be putting up a list of attendees today or tomorrow -- might jog your memory! In any case it was so great meeting you finally :).

  2. sounds like a lot of fun. I've not heard about anything like that around here.

  3. Lynn, it was great to meet you too. I'll have to check out the list.

    Kathy, I guess it's up to you to organize one in your city. :)
