The Annual Room Share Blog, 2014 Edition

By popular request, it's time once again for our annual room share blog. Hoping to find a hotel roommate to share expenses at this year's SiWC? This is the place for you!

Even if you're not sharing, this is your reminder to book soon using our group rate for best prices and in-room internet included. You can book your room here:

If you are looking for a room share, please feel free to use the comment section below to try to connect with a kindred spirit. We suggest you post whether you have a room booked or are looking to share costs with someone who does, what's important to you in a roommate (ie gender if you care, early-to-bed or early riser, etc.), and, of course, whether you've been told you snore loudly. <g>

As always, please do your homework and make good use of your spidey senses. We provide this comment trail for your convenience, but we don't know many of the people who post and we do not get involved in this process. Roommate arrangements are made at your own risk.

That being said, lots of great new friendships have been started in this very thread in past years. Save money and meet new people. Sounds like a good plan to us!


Hi, I'm looking to share hotel costs. I've got a room booked, but can always cancel if someone already has a room. I have a respiratory machine so no snoring. I am flexible with time. Would be fun to room with someone else who is part of the Compuserve Forum!

I would love to connect with someone coming from the Island, I live in Ladysmith and am interested in the full conference. As for sharing a room, I would love to share with another female, or females. I don't smoke or drink, am a musician/writer, borderline tree hugger/ granola muncher lol but without the hemp clothing :) would love to connect with other writers and people in the industry.

Hello Heather, have you found a roommate yet? If not, I'm seriously considering attending and would love to share a room with another lady. I don't drink or smoke, but confess to a healthy addiction to dark chocolate.
