I have been having a blast at the as one of the 10 official bloggers for the Canadian National Exhibition.

Here is the Story of How I was Selected as an Official CNE blogger

I will try to keep this post updated with links to my CNE media.
Official CNE Blog Posts

  1. Memorable Moments at the Ex
  2. A Timelord’s View of the Ex or The CNE Through the Eyes of a Doctor Who Fan
  3. We Send the World Music
  4. Be a Part of the Circus at the Ex

On the grounds at the Ex, I tried to tweet as much as possible using the free wifi across most of the grounds. My posts on twitter get automatically reposted to Facebook. It was alot of fun enjoying the Ex with my family and sharing it online in real time.

More of my Tweets and pictures are after the break. Read the rest of this entry »

Ecne-waitingvery summer since my daughter was about 4, my family has spent one or two days at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.  Last year, on their facebook page, I read about their Official CNE Blogger contest too late to enter.   This year I watched their webpage and began to write a 250 word entry on the day the contest was opened– then I procrastinated until the last day and wrote and revised an exactly 250 word entry while we were camping in Pennsylvania.  Last minute effort or not, I have been selected as one of 10 2013 CNE bloggers. Tonight I went to an orientation meeting on the Ex grounds for the 10 selected bloggers.

 

This year, the CNE runs from August 16 to Labour Day. I am looking forward to exploring the fair with a bunch of my friends and family members, then writing, podcasting, and vidcasting our experiences.  Here is a brief introductory podcast of the post I sent as my entry.

July 24-28, I attended FAWMSTOCK, a gathering for songwriters from around the world who have participated in February Album Writing Month.  About 30 musicians from Canada, the United States and Europe gathered at the Emlenton Mill in Emlenton, PA for 3 days of music and merriment.  This show features some of the music from FAWMSTOCK along with some of my reflections about the event.

As always, the music is copyright its respective authors.
