Starting Monday…Hilary Duff becomes guest editor of LTO!

I think you’ve all noticed that our good friend Hilary Duff has become a very important fixture here at Local Tourist Ottawa: she produced our first-ever ongoing series, she got our blog attention on a local television network, and just generally, she is a fantastic writer and good friend to our growing project.

Local Tourist Hilary Duff will be guest editor of LTO for the week of July 11th to the 17th

So…we were thrilled when she agreed to give us a one week summer vacation!

Fear not, Amy and I will not be leaving Ottawa in the middle of Bluesfest and this beautiful summer weather: we’re just going to use the break to get away from the computer, get out and enjoy our city – and maybe even write a bit more for the blog than we’ve been able to.

Starting on Monday, July 11th, Hilary will be taking over the blog as guest editor – managing the mining, editing and production of stories, as well as our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn.

Looks like Hilary is excited too:

“I’m so excited  that Jessey and Amy asked me to guest edit Local Tourist Ottawa this week. There’s little I love more than this city in the summer time, and this week I hope our contributors can make you fall in love with Ottawa even more. Hopefully you will discover some fun new summer activities and will get a fresh look into the already-established summer traditions that make the city tick.”

Welcome to the team Hilary! We’re excited to see what you dig up this week!
