Every 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.
