More Metroblogging Goodness!

I hope that you have been enjoying this past month at Metroblogging Montreal. Thanks to our new writers and their infectious enthusiasm, we have published a record number of monthly entries (this is #63) as well as the greatest number of posts in a single day (6 on Friday). To add even more of a good thing, I just got an e-mail informing me that were are getting a few more:

Laiya is a true blue Montrealer born and bred. A lifelong Plateau dweller and city gal at heart, she navigates daily amongst the quirky characters that make up this island called ‘home’. Laiya spends her days pushing paper and supports the local economy with her debilitating shopping habit. She also enjoys running and has a penchant for pugs. Laiya is thrilled to be sharing her wry observations and unsolicited rants with the readers of metroblog.

Lisa is a native New Yorker now based in Montreal. Her theory is that the day you realize everything in your wardrobe is black and everything in your apartment is white, it’s time to leave Manhattan.

And last but not least, Leo, an American turned Canadian in Montreal.

Two more transplanted Americans…Frank will be pleased.

Update: I have just noticed that this is my 300th post. :-D

    Awesome! Welcome aboard, all–and be sure to come out to La Quincaillerie Wednesday night!

    Cool. But should I be happy that they are Americans or that they are Americans that have also fled to Canada.

    Vila, It looks like you’re becoming a regular.

    I’m having a very busy summer, Captain, but still try to stick my oar in occasionally. Welcome to all the new guys and gals. It really is true: the more, the merrier. :)

    Welcome! (And also, YAY, I’m not the newbie anymore!)

    So are there more Americans or Canadians blogging here? And now that we set a new record who wants to write the first billet en francaist?
