El Paso, Life, Blogging Event, etc.

I need one of these in my life! Photo from Google Search/Foodspotting.

Hi everyone! I hope your day went well! I’ve had a bad headache since yesterday! I’ve been relaxing and sleeping throughout the day. I didn’t go to work because the headache was too much to handle! I’m glad it’s been cool at my place or I don’t know what I would do! Right now it’s only about 94 degrees! Lol.

The El Paso Downtown Street Festival happens Friday and Saturday. I’ll most likely be there. I’ll have a review post on Sunday and live Twitter posts from the event. Besides local bands, Neon Trees, Seether, Goo Goo Dolls and Collective Soul are the main acts performing. Lots of local art, a car show and vendors are also expected at the yearly summer festival.

My childhood friend, Ryan Loera, who’s also a booktuber, WP blogger, author (he wears many hats!), etc. is playing a free show with his band, Revolt at KingsX Bar Friday night. I’m going to try my best to catch this one as well! Luckily, he has more local shows coming up within the next few weeks. You can check out his YouTube channel here. He can be followed on Twitter here. 

If you’ve been reading and following my blog lately, you’ve probably read about the Bloggers Bash/award ceremony that recently took place in London. A few bloggers are interested in having a similar event in the U.S. I have the following questions below for you:

*Would other bloggers be interested in attending a U.S. version of this event?

*Would you like for this event to take place in El Paso or in another U.S. city? If it’s not in El Paso, which city would you like for it to be held in?

*Would you like to help organize this event?

I was thinking Labor Day weekend 2017 would be a good time to have it? I hope to hear from you! Please feel free to leave your comments here. I’ll be back tomorrow with more music and posts!  






  1. There’s been four cities that we wanted to include in a month-long poll in the next couple of weeks. The cities bloggers would vote on would be: Dallas, Chicago, New York City and New Orleans. If you want we can add DC and/or Baltimore?

  2. Great Linda! Which city did people choose? Dallas or Chicago? I’ll email you later on. Thank you! Oh yeah I suggested September 2, 2017 during Labor Day. What do you think of this date?

  3. I will definitely help and will certainly attend. I polled people earlier on this very issue. A city with a major airport would be great. My first choice would be Dallas, since it’s a major hub, but Chicago would be fine, too. Please email me so I can help. lbeth1950@hotmail.com reblogging.

  4. 😃 You’re welcome! I don’t think it would really be enough time to plan it. Well it might but I’m sure it’s really short notice for some.


  5. Hello Eugenia! Thank you for coming by! I’m sorry to hear you can’t make it but…maybe next time! We’re most likely planning it for September, around Labor Day weekend 2017. It’s nice to meet you as well!

  6. Hi Lisa, I came over from Lynz Real Cooking. I wouldn’t be able to attend but I will be glad to help spread the word when plans are closer to being firmed up. It’s nice meeting you.

  7. Hi Lori! This is for next year, most likely Labor Day weekend. I was thinking September 2, 2017. Hopefully you can make it! We’re going to vote on which city it’s going to be held in the next few weeks.

  8. Would love to meet fellow bloggers but my schedule is packed with work and travel for the next six months. However, I might be able to add it to another trip depending on the location.

  9. You said labor day, right? It depends… my son’s birthday is on the 12th. I will see. Just plan and I will try to make it happen, Lisa! I am really happy that you get so much support. But then again I was sure you would!

  10. No problem, Erika. I understand things come up. There’s a few bloggers who want to help with the event. I hope you can come. I’m not sure where it’s going to happen yet. It’s most likely happening in September 2017.

  11. Awesome! I just read the comments! The feedbacks are amazing! Wooohooo! I am already excited! What I thought about the place. Perhaps it would be great if it was held in a city with international airport. That would make it more attractive for people from outisde the US to come over. Because changing planes is a pain in the neck since there is the immigration procedure and the stress with missing the plane. Just a thought from a US traveler… lol! For example Swiss flys directly to Chicago, New York, Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and perhaps Washington but I think that changed… as I said, just a thought!

  12. I cannot afford the time at the moment at all. I don’t even get the normal things into a new order. Also to be honest, I don’t know where my private life goes to during the next months…. so I need to keep my head a bit free for whatever comes …. but for sure I could help with little things like spreading news or something like that. I just don’t want to enroll because I don’t know if I can keep it up. I hope I did not disappoint you. Simply times of change here at the moment.💖
