Canadian Blog Awards

Comments 14 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It looks like I’ve been nominated for the Canadian Blog Awards (2007) but instead of telling all my readers to rush over and vote for me (although I really won’t stop you) here are a couple of my peers who have been nominated in various categories as well.

Some Nominees (there are many more categories though):

  • Best Blog (vote here): Matthew Good and also Raymi the Minx
  • Best New Blog (vote here): Buzz Bishop
  • Best Photo/Art Blog (vote here): PhilOgynist and also PhotoJunkie
  • Best Political Blog (vote here): Matthew Good
  • Best Group Blog (vote here): DeSmogBlog and Beyond Robson (although BR is basically Sean Orr… I’d vote for him in another category).
  • Best Humour Blog (vote here): Raymi the Minx
  • Best Blog Post (vote here): Meg Fowler
  • You can vote only once per category, per round. Unlike previous years, you do not get one vote per day.

    I have been nominated in a couple of categories but just looking at the others in the Best Blog (vote here) listing, I don’t even want to stand a chance since – those are some of my favourite blogs in there.

    I figure since I’ve also been nominated for Best Local Blog (vote here), and Best Blogosphere Citizen (vote here), that I might have a shot in those categories.

    Unfortunately when you get to the “voting” page you can’t click to view the websites. They really should have installed the WP-Polls plugin that I use. You’ll have to go to the main page of the CBAs to review.

    Vote now until January21st (first round ends) then the second round will commence with the finalists. Best of luck to everyone, though I’m really not sure what you win aside from a poorly rendered jpg badge for your sidebar.

      Who can get enough of poorly rendered anything?

      And I nominated you in the Best citizen, you kick my ass at that.

      I read that as “kiss my ass for that”. Ms Fowler!!

      Dang, there was no “Best Restaurant Reviews” category 🙁 [and besides, nobody nominated me, LOL!]

      Meg and you are great nominees, though 🙂

      Kudos to whoever nominated DeSmog Blog, one of the best Canadian environmental blogs [and this comes from someone whose blog is supposed to be environmentally-centric!]

      Many hugs.

      If there’s a WP-Poll Widget for WordPress.COM please point the way, either I or someone on the CBA Operator team can investigate using it for the finals.
      It should also have IP/cookie security, and work on posts/pages and not just the sidebar.

      aw crud yeah i forgot about the element 😛 WP-Polls does work on posts and creates a polls archive page for you as well as giving you the option to restrict number of votes based on IP/cookies etc. Here is the link anyway.
