A few weeks ago I was asked by Jessey to be a guest blogger for Local Tourist Ottawa, a cool blog that her and her friend Amy started a while back. The idea behind the blog is great: it’s all about people sharing what they love about Ottawa and encouraging others to discover more about the city they live in (what fun is a city to live in if you can’t explore it, after all?). When I saw that Jes wanted me to be a guest blog, I was out-of-my-mind excited. Maybe this is a good time to say this: I have absolutely NO idea how/why people are still reading my blog or how I am suddenly a legit blogger. People I don’t know comment on my posts, link to me off of their blogs, and everything! Anyways, it’s mind boggling, and I’m so honoured and happy that people seem to like what I do. So everyone, thank you so much for giving me even more validation to do what I love. It’s really just so lovely.
Buuuuuut back to me guest blogging. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to write about at first, until one day it hit me:
I am going to find Ottawa’s perfect cupcake.
With that thought firmly planted in my mind, and I pitched the idea to Jes who (thank heavens) loved it.
So here is a shameless plug. Please, please, please read my posts on Local Tourist Ottawa, as I sacrifice my dental health and well being for a delicious mission. Here’s the link to the intro post I’ve already written, outlining the technicalities of my adventure. I plan on trying/blogging about at least one cupcake a week, so please keep checking back for updates. I’ve already got a list of more than a dozen bakeries/cupcakes to try (so many people commented on my intro post/tweeted at me suggesting places!), so I’ve got my work cut out for me.
