i’d like to introduce you guys to some peeps

Oh hi. It’s me Casie. In case you ever wondered, my blog, This is My Life, started out as a way to keep more memories one  sunny April day in 2006. This b-b-baby has been a best friend, therapy, and a great platform for me to get closer to the dreams I’ve always had. I love it dearly.

Tomorrow evening I’m doing a seminar about blogging with some people I’ve met and been inspired by over the last little while. You may not know them, the same way you know me, so I’m introducing you. There’s still a couple tickets left so go get one here and come meet me & them IRL.

I met Carly last year through the internet, then IRL at a music thingy. Along with being cute and a good friend, she’s really talented. She is a Talent Agent representing principal actors in film, TV and voice.  In Jan 2010, her agency,  Fairlie Agency launched the New Media division and the Toronto Blog Stars group.   Carly has over 15 years experience in the entertainment industry, both on camera and behind the scenes. You’ll get to meet her if coming on Thursday.

You may know Raymi from her blog or me mentioning her  (if you don’t, I’m a little surprised). She’s been blogging since 2000 and was the first daily blogger I knew; She was cool and from Toronto like me. I immediately added her as a friend on Facebook based on this alone. About a year later, we met IRL. She writes about her life and gives you a really close view of it. She became famous on the internet by blogging and has a unique style that’s won her heaps of awards.  Her videos also get heaps of attention ex:

I met Sean Ward when Notable TV & SmoJoe named the Top TO Bloggers last year. It was really cool to be connected to people that do the same kinda thing as you, yet so differently. I didn’t really know other bloggers at the time. Sean writes an online comic called Sean Ward Super Party. He’s a great illustrator.  He’s made a rap video and released an album.

I wanted to fill you in a bit so when you show up you know more than just me.  Look forward to seeing familiar faces, but most of all, I look forward to meets IRL.

Enjoy the sunshine!

    Let us also put it out there that I hope no one recognizes any of us, and then doesn't come say hello. Few things are more disappointing that someone telling me they follow me online and were in the same place as me but didn't come say hello. If we look busy, we're only busy making things fun so you'll come join us! Introduce yourself!

    Two things- Sean's video is f*cking awesome, and you've got a really cool blog. I just happened to see you become mayor of your url on foursquare and checked it out. Love it 🙂
