Today is Celebration of the 2nd Annual Ontario Blogger's Day. The talent is amazing throughout the World, however I am amazed how much so here in my very own Province of Ontario.
Blogging for me has really opened up the World, with meeting so many wonderful new friends along the way.
I decided I would reserve this day once a Year to recognize Ontario Bloggers, as myself, who are scattered about this Province I have lived my whole life in. Before I introduce those who have joined me here this day, let me tell you a little more about where I live, even though most of you know it is "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
Should anyone be a long time visitor to the Bruce Peninsula, they might know what "North of the Checkerboard" means ... you do not know? Just *click* HERE for the best explanation going in my "Neck of the Woods". Not to many months ago Wiarton had been renamed the Town of South Bruce Peninsula, but for many of us we will always be Wiarton.
What has put Wiarton on the Map of Ontario to make it "shine" every February 2nd? Let me tell you, should you not have already met the little guy responsible.
My Crabby Cabbie will also be zipping around town on the Wiarton Willie Festival Weekend, so if you need a Taxi give him a call !!! Looking for a list of Events and Schedule for the 2014 Wiarton Willie Festival? please do so at the Official Wiarton Willie Facebook Page HERE, or the website HERE.
Personally I am truly looking forward to the Wiarton Willie Experience myself this upcoming Year. I have been invited this day to do the Photography for the Social Media Press Release (a further post on this fun hub bub will follow), so hence the early post this day.
Truly I love living on the Bruce Peninsula. There is much much more being offered by living here then the Wiarton Willie Festival, even though that is a highlight in itself. Here is another glimpse of my World that is located a hop skip and a jump from where I live ...
Lovely isn't it ? one of my Son, Paul's favourite spots to go when he comes home to visit.

To each Ontario Blogger who has participated I can not begin to tell you how pleased I am that each of you were here to partake in such an amazing day of coming together. Please each take the time to introduce yourselves to each other on your Blogs, hopefully even "joining as a follower" as a gesture of your support.
I truly do enjoy what each and everyone had to contribute to this day, and I am looking forward to hosting another Ontario Blogger's Day next January 17th 2015.
Remember when stopping in to visit at anyone's blog, "take what you will from it and leave the rest", as an individual's blog post is their own personal journey, not to be judged or criticized by another.
And by the way ....
Until we meet again that is all she wrote, "Just North of Wiarton & South of The Checkerboard".
