Keira-Anne is stopping by today to offer some support for those doing Blogathon here at Workspace. Over the years she has become one of my closest and dearest friends, whom I can count on and trust wholeheartedly.

We’ve enjoyed many adventures together, from simple days of sun and sand at the local beach, to snowboarding and kayaking getaways on her beloved Vancouver Island.

Our biggest adventure is yet to come however, as in the spring of 2010 I’ll be accompanying Keira to New York so she can meet the city she’s had in her dreams for years.

Keira is also currently raising funds for the BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk that is taking place at the end of summer. She’ll also have a guest post up on my site (because she’s pretty sweet like that) and if you can believe it, this is the third year in a row she’s contributed a post for my Blogathon.

chillonthehillI recently wrote about the NESTEA Chill on the Hill event in a Link Fest and it’s happening today up in Whistler.

Chill on the Hill will host concerts, a railslide & quarter pipe stunt park (with carted in snow), beach volleyball (with carted in sand) and an interactiviTEA bar with wifi.

You can follow @ChillontheHill on Twitter or better yet, our friends Gus, Russ and Tanya will be in attendance. Check out their blogs for updates and photos from the event this weekend.

For the next few hours I will be profiling bloggers who have joined me here at Workspace for the Blogathon Vancouver on-site event. Blogathon is taking place around the world but it’s a pleasure to have organized something that can unite locals each running their own campaign.

A Boy and His Lake

Duane Storey is taking part in his second Blogathon this year and I have the chance to hang out with him during our campaigns. Since moving back to his hometown of Chilliwack, BC he’s rekindled his passion for the outdoors, hanging out with his awesome niece and nephew, and perhaps even some cow-tipping (that’s what they do out there, right?) I jest. Duane is one of our best friends and he’ll be writing to support the BC Childrens Hospital on his own site as well as on his hyper-local In the Wack blog.

Karen Countably Infinite – Karen Quinn Fung is someone I’ve been lucky to hang out with at various social media events around town including Vancouver Transit Camp, which she organized. She’s blogging today for the very cool Vancouver Public Spaces Network, “a grassroots collective that engages in advocacy, outreach and education on public space issues in and around Vancouver, British Columbia.”

Tiny Bites – The Tiny Bites team is blogging in shifts today with Degan and Bruce helping out a lovely expectant Karen Hamilton. Their cause is the Vancouver Food Bank and they’re fittingly serving up delicious food and dining-related posts all day. One of the team members is (hopefully) joining us here at workspace later today.

Ganga Story Analytics – Ganga is new to the blogging world as we first met just a few months ago at a monthly blogger meetup. He’s blogging with us at Workspace today to support the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association. Having only partial hearing in my right ear, this is certainly a cause close to my heart.

Neil ParkerEnduroBlog – Neil Parker started this blog specifically for Blogathon and to support his cause, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. He was one of two people to ride their bikes her today and you can tell he’s a bit of an enthusiast as he is @YVRCyclist on Twitter.

Caroline

Sexy in Vancity – To say that Caroline empowers other woman through leadership and compassion is an understatement. She not only writes a blog and hosts a radio program, but she’s also the founder of BeautyNight, “a non-profit volunteer-based organization that provides makeovers and wellness programs to marginalized women and youth.”

Lorraine Raincoaster – Lorraine is a social media coach and blogger extraordinaire whose online presences reach far and wide. Her cause today is the Federation of BC Writers with which she is highly involved.

Isabella Mori is a member of the canadian professional counsellors association and of the international society for mental health online. She is a former Vancouver Blogger Meetup organizer and co-hosted MentalHealthCamp. She is @moritherapy on Twitter.


Catherine

Catherine Winters is participating in her first Blogathon this year. I often run into her at conferences and she is the person to go to in Vancouver for anything Second Life related. Her blog posts this morning are already cracking me up so I’m looking forward to seeing what she writes throughout the rest of her campaign.

Raul & me

One of such participants is my friend Raul Pacheco. He’s always eager to lend a hand, show support, keep your spirits up, and is one of the most friendly people you’ll ever meet. He’s blogging today on his site, Hummingbird604 and I believe he’ll have a few up on his research site as well. He is doing Blogathon for the third year in a row.
