Love Letter to Twitter Friends

A lot of you who read this blog know me from Twitter. If you know me from Twitter…and if you know me at all, you know that I love the Habs.

I was recently invited to be a contributor to the Habs Tweetup website and the Vancouver event coordinator, and I couldn’t be more delighted! It’s an honour to join that great team.

My first contribution to the site is the story of how I came to love Twitter and my whirlwind trip to Montreal last March, where I met so many of the Habs fans on Twitter and had a weekend I’ll never forget!

An excerpt of the story:

…I am a Habs fan of the only variety of Habs fan there is: die-hard. Have been since I can remember. Many of you know me on Twitter as @chile_pepper and about 50 of you I’ve MET/met, for real. And it was all thanks to a magical event known as a Habs Tweetup.

Also, if you know me, you know that I talk, A LOT, and you may also know that I recently started blogging. Okay, so if you either know me ‘IRL’ or have read any of my blog posts, you know that I am verbose and veer in different directions. I will try to keep this as succinct as possible, but with the primary focus here being my love for my ‘tweeps’, I can’t make any promises that it’ll be short but I can promise that the love for the tweeps is a straight road, no exits.

The whole story is on the Habs Tweetup website. To find out more about how Habs Tweetup needed a site of its own, visit my friend All Habs‘s site (also listed over there on the right in the list of the many blogs ‘Better Than This Blog’).

You guys. Only 53 days until the Habs are in Toronto for their first game of the season. Woo!
