Canadian Blog Awards 2008 and a strong Vancouver/BC contingent!
The results of the Canadian Blog Awards first round of voting for 2008 have been just published, and I’m very honored to be nominated in 3 categories: Best Blog, Best Local Blog and Best Personal Blog. Thank you all for the vote of confidence. Of course, I would be happy if you voted for me, but the nomination itself is pretty big in my books, and I’m really flattered.
I am also honored to be in great company this year. Last year, my friend Rebecca Bollwitt was nominated to the Canadian Blog Awards 2007 and won 3rd Best Local Blog (nation-wide). This year, she is nominated again, and a bunch of other colleagues and friends are in various other categories. I didn’t scan them in thorough detail, so if I’ve missed someone, please do let me know.

Best New Blog
Of course, there were MANY really worthy and awesome blogs and podcasts in Vancouver that didn’t get nominated. Jodi mentioned on Twitter one that I am particularly fond of, Lip Gloss and Laptops. I was also shocked not to see Beyond Robson nominated in the Best Group Blog category. Sean Orr’s series (Morning Brew) SHOULD have been nominated. The Crazy Canucks‘ blog and podcast should have been nominated.
Many really awesome blogs and podcasts were deserving of a nomination, and I am truly grateful just by the fact that I’ve been nominated and I’m a finalist. Congratulations to my fellow nominees, and let’s hope that there are several categories were Metro Vancouverites are winners!
