The End of Blogging Monogomy

I have a confession to make: I've been neglecting this blog. When I first started blogging, I was cautioned about other bloggers who start strong, but whose enthusiasm eventually wanes and posts become sporadic and infrequent. I thought to myself, "I'll never be like that."

The reason for this is because I’ve been splitting my digital time. It’s good to be busy, and something’s had to give.

So what’s been consuming my time? A scooter. Orange and black. Electric.

It's Me! On the GIO Electric Scooter

I was recently hired as a “social media editorial intern” by Maverick PR, a firm that is handling a GIO Bikes—maker of ATVs, dirt bikes and electric scooters ... like the one I’ve been given.

I was given this scooter, and have been tasked with the assignment of blogging about my Toronto electric scooter adventures as GIO in T.O. The gig is to ride through Toronto on the electric scooter, and tell the story using social media.

It’s been a lot of fun so far. The scooter is a blast. It’s an environmentally-friendly way to get around the city, and has been saving me a bundle in gas and TTC fare. I’ve been blogging about it, taking photos of it, tweeting about it and will eventually be making and posting some videos too!

I will pledge to you, loyal readers, to strive for more consistent and regular blogs on this site. But as an alternative, I would invite you and encourage you to visit http://GIOinTO.com.
