HeidiTown.com is a blog where the Mayor, Heidi, talks about Colorado events, festivals and road trips. It's not a calendar of events, but rather stuff the Mayor likes, festivals like Niwot's Left-Hander Days.
Heidi created her own town to rule as the Mayor, that town is called HeidiTown. Interesting huh? I talked to The Mayor of HeidiTown.com to get the scoop.

Spontaneous, public yoga at parks and art galleries. Cool!!!
"Yoga shouldn't just be for the super rich" Get Bent says, so they have formed a "group of Fun Havin' Enthusiasts who want to bring yoga to the good people of the Front Range". They post locations for public yoga on Facebook. This may be an art gallery, rooftop or a park. And the group is donation based, so you pay if you want to.
I love the positive community feeling behind this. I had to find out more. I talked with Jackie, the lead yogi behind Get Bent: Guerrilla Yoga.
What do followers of Get Bent: Guerrilla Yoga gain?
Is this public yoga safe for beginners?
Poudre River Public Libraries is an informative and fun site to follow. You learn the informative "book" related things you would expect, but you also learn about great community events and fun facts like on July 13th when the PRPL informed us all that it was "Embrace Your Geekness Day".
Paula Watson-Lakamp the Communications Manager for the Poudre River Public Libraries was kind enough to talk to us about how the library stays current and we got to have a little fun with librarian stereotypes too.
What is the biggest misconception of today's library?
No "bun contests"? Paula talks librarians
If you have young kids NoCoTots.com is an essential site to follow. NoCo Tots has parent and kids activities for Fort Collins and Northern Colorado. This is where I found a great group of Mom's to hang out with and kids for my toddler to play with. They organize events through Meetup.com which is easy to use. I asked one of the organizers, Robben George, a little bit more about the group.
Why should I follow NoCo Tots?
Dad's are not forgotten and there is family fun too!
Mom's Night Out, kid talk, but with cocktails (or ice tea)
