Here’s a sample of the reading I found between working, Halloweening, and ferrying a certain someone to ringette:

- #YEGBike visits with dogged cyclist and front-end developer Adam Patterson.
- On OilersNation, Jason Gregor talks to Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens about the artists designing his masks this season.
And let’s call this category “Experiences”:

- On New Music Michael’s blog, Aaron Vanimere shares some great photos from The Provincial Archive’s album release party.
- Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail digs up memories of Friday nights at the Rainbow Ballroom.
- A couple of posts on the delight of mail: Ali Kira on why she sends real letters, and Kassey on Ashley Green’s Love Letters to Strangers.
Halloween — that’s an experience all its own:

- At Adventures in Fashion, Vickie Laliotis did a week’s worth of Halloween, including a spooky encounter with Slenderman.
