The Joys of Metblogging
So Jeffery recently noted that once again, we’re looking for some new writers to
replace the deadwood enhance and renew our ongoing commitment to excellence in localblogging. I thought I’d tell you some of the wonderful things you can get out of being part of the angry ball of snakes that is your hardworking and loyal gang of humble servants here. And yes, I do explain the non-sequitur logo just to my right! But after the jump.
Personally, nothing will compare to the simple and surprisingly strong camaraderie of knowing my fellow Metbloggers. I haven’t met every member of the team personally, but I’ve come pretty close, and I’ve made some good friends and some good enemies. If you want to impress your parents, you can always say that you write for the same blog as Wil Wheaton. Well, if your parents watched ST:TNG, I guess.
But enough about that, I also got some goodies. Let’s see: free phone, a meal or two, and a trip to Toronto so I can appear on national television.
Yep, January 20th, 2008, I’ll be on Test the Nation, as part of the “bloggers” team. The prestige of this achievement can be measured by the fact that I qualified for it, but I’ve never been to Toronto, so what the heck.
Which brings me to the real reason I wrote this post: what should I see in Toronto? It’s not likely to be a very long trip, probably just a weekend, and I already figure the Hockey Hall of Fame is a must-see, but what else?
