Hello all, this post is live and direct from The Great Canadian Blog Bash – TGCBB, just in time for the Canada Day long weekend! What is the TGCBB? Well, its a collection of amazing Canadian social media rockstars who love their country and want to connect with other rockstars and celebrate Canadian businesses!
So if you haven’t already figured it out, this is an all Canadian themed online party! Woohoo!
I live in the centre of this glorious country of ours, in a city I’m proud to call my home, Winnipeg. Also known as The Peg, Peg City, and the Slurpee Capital of the World, Winnipeg could probably have a mosquito as the mascot haha! A few years ago I thought to myself that it’d be awesome to start up a blog of my own. I wanted to try and focus on the fabulousness of Winnipeg because I feel like sometimes we aren’t as visible to the rest of the country. I wanted to join the other Winnipeg bloggers/social media fanatics who were sharing the positivity and greatness this city has to offer!
After a couple of years researching, hemming, hawing and building, PegCityLovely was born! For my very first post, I wrote about why I started my blog and as I “got the hang” of things, I started to write more and connect with not only bloggers but some brands and companies as well. In less than a month I will be celebrating my one year blogiversary and I look forward to celebrating with all of you readers!
I gotta tell ya, the Canadian blogging community is amazing. They have been so welcoming and fun, plus they’ve embraced my “crazy”, how could I not love ’em?! The community is filled with such dynamic, wonderful people, and I am so blessed to be a part of it all! Yep, I’m gushing, because it’s true!
The Great Canadian Blog Bash will not only allow me to connect with even more online mavens (female and male), but you can too! Follow some new blogs, visit ones you haven’t seen in a while, and enter some great giveaways! There are also some great Canadian companies who have joined TGCBB as sponsors and are giving away some ridiculous prizes – be sure to stay tuned for those!
Who are some great Canadian bloggers that you follow? What makes them great?
