Today is a special day for Eventful Capital: Elly Reviews Around the City since the blog turns one! For the occasion, I’ve decided to write a more personal post to reflect on the the past year and on what I’ve been able to accomplish with the blog so far.
On November 20 last year, I made the decision to start a blog that would promote and review a variety of events happening in the Ottawa-Gatineau area in an effort to change the National Capital’s reputation and peoples’ negative perception of a city that apparently fun forgot.
I began with the simple concept that I would review events that I attended to share my views and my love for events of all kinds. Then, I progressively started suggesting and promoting fun and exciting even ideas to keep people in the loop on what was happening in Canada’s National Capital Region.
In the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to attend numerous shows, festivals, exhibition openings, award ceremonies and other fun activities, all of which proved to me that the NCR is certainly not a boring place despite what people stubbornly convince themselves to think.
I would like to thank every single one of you for taking the time to read Eventful Capital. Wether you’ve only visited the blog once or you’re a regular reader, I truly appreciate your support and I do what I do for people like you. Thank you.
In the year to come, I will continue to share my perspective and impressions on events that I attend around the city and you can also expect more from Eventful Capital: more event ideas, more reviews, some interviews and perhaps some surprises!
Thanks again for reading and for sharing my love for our national capital city,
