4️⃣🎂🎉

Hey guys! Ottawa Is Not Boring turns 4 years old today!! Happy Birthday dear blog!!! ❤️🥳🎊

For me Ottawa Is Not Boring is like having a son!!! I love it so much!! 😍😍 And it gives me a lot of work!! 😂😂😂

I would say that my blog actually has two birthdays. The original one when I opened this account and posted the first post on June 23, 2020. Then two years later when it started to be known as an account of events in Ottawa. 😊

When I opened this account in 2020 I wanted to make a statement. That’s what motivated me, to tell people: “No. Ottawa is not that dead quiet city that everybody talks about. There are great things to do and see in Ottawa”.

But in the middle of the pandemic, it was so difficult to prove that, right? That’s why, when in the summer of 2022 life started to go back to normal, and many of the big events announced their return, I saw an opportunity to prove my point!

I started to inform people about weekend events in Ottawa and the rest is history. The blog became unexpectedly popular and it took off to where it is today, a community of 86,000 people. ❤️

I love to see that more and more people are defending Ottawa from unfounded allegations of being the city that fun forgot.

But what I would really love to see now is the disappearance of videos making fun of Ottawa. From time-to-time, people who are not from here, have the idea of sharing videos making fun of Ottawa with the expectation that they will go viral. Sadly, these videos get lots of likes and thousands of views. I just pass on them. I don’t engage with this kind of content even though I feel like defending Ottawa. The more you pay attention to these mocking videos, the more they will keep coming.

I don’t think these videos are funny, they make me so upset! 😡

I just ask for a little respect for Ottawa, the capital of Canada. There is no need to belittle it or make fun of it. On the contrary, let’s praise the beautiful capital city of a great country like Canada! Don’t you think so?

What do you feel when seeing videos mocking Ottawa? Share your thoughts!

Happy Sunday!
