Come and Hear…XUP

This is the first in a series of posts that will introduce some of the readers for this year’s Blog Out Loud.

A few years ago, XUP was an Urban Pedestrian blogging in Halifax. We were lucky enough to steal her away to Ottawa, where’s she’s now the Ex-Urban Pedestrian, or XUP for short.

XUP blogs about all manner of subjects — from current events to pop culture to grammar issues to the joys of parenting a teenager. Her posts are always interesting and informative — and often spit-your-drink-out hilarious. She’s cultivated a wide group of commenters who have a lively, intelligent discussion on every one of her posts.

You may also know XUP as half of the team behind the semi-monthly Bloggers Breakfast (along with Zoom). They’ve managed to turn a ragtag group of Ottawa bloggers into a real community.

Come on out to Blog Out Loud and find out if it’s pronounced “X-U-P,” “zup,” “ex-up,” or “zoop.”
