I’m happy to announce that Blog Out Loud this year will have a totally awesome emcee – Dani Donders of Postcards from the Mothership. Woot!
If you’re a parent in Ottawa, Dani’s blog is, quite simply, a must-read. She’s a bubbly, friendly, upbeat person with a giant heart and an even bigger love of life. Her blog is the place to go for silly, crazy, and fun stories about parenting, and specifically about parenting in Ottawa. She’s got the insider track on a hundred of the best places to go in town, the little out-of-the-way places that are like secret treasures for you and your kids. Her fun and detailed adventures will have you wanting to go where she does and do what she does – or at least have a good chuckle while you read about it.
Dani’s also well-known for her amazing photos – after a few years of taking daily pictures and posting them on her blog, she’s grown into a bona fide photographer, one who captures incredible beauty in everyday life. Her shots of her own family, pets, Manotick home and Ottawa locales are bright, colourful little slices of life that bring new perspectives and a sense of warmth to scenes that we all know well. She also brings her beautiful style to her own photography business, Mothership Photography. Between that, and writing, and working full time, raising three boys, it’s even more impressive that she manages to be so sunny and bright, but somehow, she makes it all happen.
We’re delighted to have Dani be a part of this year’s Blog Out Loud event. Come and say hello to one of Ottawa’s best-known bloggers!
