Last night our own Barbara Frum Atrium was the setting for a major meeting of digital minds as over 300 of Canada's top female bloggers joined us to kick off the Blissdom Canada 2011 conference.
I was very proud to host the night's festivities, which also featured a toast by Blissdom co-founders Barbara Jones, Alli Worthington and Blissdom Canada organizer and mistress of ceremonies Catherine Connors, as well as a very cool live performance by The Meligrove Band.
The cocktails were by Cocktail Deeva Dee Brun, a regular on Steven and Chris, and the all-Canadian playlist was created specially for the event by CBC Radio 2. Joining the event were many of the stars of CBC radio and television, some of whom you'll see in our video recap below...
It truly was a joy to meet many of the people whose Twitter profile pics and quips we've grown to know and love so well and, most of all, to share ideas and conversation with so many talented bloggers and digital media professionals.
To follow the Blissdom Canada conference, which continues tomorrow with panels featuring Patty Sullivan, Nora Young, Tessa Sproule, Amber Mac, and more, including myself, use the hashtag #BlissdomCanada. You're likely to meet a lot of new online friends.
