After all of last week's announcements we're back to regularly scheduled news this week but we still have lots going on.
More Events From Blurb - MONTREAL
We have more events from Blurb this week as they make their way across the country with their Canadian Road Show. This week we have dates for Montreal. Blurb will be hosting a blogger meetup on October 1st at Hotel Nelligan from 6-9pm. There’s no charge and it’s a great opportunity to come meet fellow bloggers and others who’ve been using Blurb and get a little inspired with what you can do with your recipes and photos with Blurb books. There’ll be light refreshments on hand and members of the Blurb team. You can register on the event page.
And don’t forget, the Calgary Blurb event is this week on September 27th. Check here for more info and to RSVP. We'll have more info on Toronto coming soon.

Mushrooms Go PINK campaign will be running again this October in support of the fight against Breast Cancer. This year's campaign features recipes from FBC Members Sweet Sugar Bean, Suzie the Foodie and eat. live. travel. write.
