Local Tourist Ottawa named one of OttawaStart’s 26 essential blogs

On behalf our Local Tourists, we just wanted to send a quick shout out to Glen Gower of OttawaStart, who earlier this week named Local Tourist Ottawa one of the site’s 26 Essential Ottawa Blogs.

We’re certainly in great company! Ottawa has a thriving blogging community and we are so thrilled to be a part of it.

It has been just three months since we started this site, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response and the continuous stream of submissions.We’ve had Local Tourists write on a huge range of topics, including spots to get a great meal, museums, sports, art, theatre, and of course, more obscure topics such as the hunt for the best pho or Ottawa’s cupcake craze.

All in all, we’ve had a fantastic start.

We said from the beginning that this blog is about one thing: getting out, enjoying the best of this city, and sharing it with everyone else. LTOttawa is a compilation of the authors’ vow to participate more in our own community, as well as our readers’ contributions: as we all explore our city, we encourage everyone else to do the same.

We’re always excited to welcome guest bloggers – in fact, that is the whole point of this project. So, if you’d like to become a Local Tourist and contribute – please don’t hesitate to get in touch by using the form below. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks again to OttawaStart, and we hope you all have a great weekend in Ottawa!
