It’s so hard for me to complain about bloggers when they piss me off in my day to day work because, I know, somewhere, there is probably a PR person saying the same thing about me as a blogger.
It can sometimes be difficult as a blogger to remember the PR person behind the pitch, just doing the best for their client and trying to make you happy too. When you get so much free stuff and amazing opportunities, it can be difficult not to expect more.
I am fortunate enough to work with so many incredibly amazing bloggers who are great friends, as well, and I wanted to take the opportunity to shed some love to a few Toronto bloggers who are doing some amazing things right now or who have some great things coming down the pipe:
At the beginning of January, Zach Bussey moved all of his belongings out of his home on a quest to live a completely “sponsored life” for one full year. At the end of his project, all of the items he accumulates will be donated to various charities.
It’s been one month, and he’s already been featured in Forbes. Crazy right!
View the Vibe, well-known for their videos of Toronto’s best dining facilities and restaurants, has recently expanded and launched the same concept for spas in the city of Toronto.
The new site looks pretty slick! Guys, check it out and find the perfect spa to send your lady to for V-day!

My good pal, Tamika of Shop Socials (who was just on CityLine showcasing her style expertise) is hosting a sexy, sassy pop up on Friday February 8th ( I would so go, but it’s the same night as Lady Gaga!) You should go to pick up some toys for Valentine’s Day!
Toronto blogger and dancer, Ashely Gibson, will be bravely opening up herself in February, discussing how her mother committed suicide 15 years ago this month.
She will be hosting the above event as well as featuring 25 personal stories from bloggers and public figures on her site throughout the month about their own dealings with mental health issues.
About the Show:
This year I decided to create something that has been rumbling in my soul for a long time. On February 22nd at 9:30pm, I will be performing in a show called “Life is Sweet, Even in February” to honour my mom. The show will feature a range of songs that my mum enjoyed and songs that remind me of her alongside stories of her life, our time together, the impact of her mental illness and my journey through healing after her death. I’ve been collaborating with musical director Tara Litvack on the show and I’m thrilled that this project is going to culminate in my very first solo show. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door and proceeds from the show’s ticket sales will be donated to the CAMH Foundation.
Love you all! Who are some of your favorite Toronto bloggers these days?
