It is with great pleasure and a phenomenal amount of gratitude that I announce that Miss604.com has won “Best Local Blog” in the Georgia Straight’s 15th annual “Best of Vancouver” issue. This is the second year that Miss604.com has won this title and it is 100% due to the support of the voting public and my wonderful readers.

Buttons!

What makes this news even better is that I share this win with a blog that I personally recommend to others all the time, and that is Vancouver is Awesome.

Vancouver is Awesome is a non-profit with the goal of promoting Vancouver in a positive light. With its roster of authors, original weekly themes, unique interviews, and event sponsorship it has changed the Vancouver blogging landscape for the better. I am very honored to share the title of “Best Local Blog” with Bob Kronbauer and his team. I am also excited to be contributing to their series, Vancouver Was Awesome.

@Miss604 was also voted “Best Local Twitterer” in this year’s “Best of Vancouver” and I thank all of my followers in Twitterland for that honor. I have been using Twitter since 2007 and it’s amazing once again, to be honored by my readers and followers.

Going forward (and as always) I will have good days and bad, I will have stories you might skip over and those you might share with all of your friends and family. My posts might be personal in nature, they might feature photos of delicious food, or help you discover a neat local event or two. This is something that I am committed to each and every day because I simply love to do it.

As Miss604.com celebrates its 6th anniversary this fall, I thank you again for your support over the years. Without it, the site wouldn’t be what it is today.

Other “Best of Vancouver” winners include:

Best local band (signed): Mother Mother
Best local band (unsigned): Said the Whale
Best afternoon radio host(s): Peter Schaad and Carmen Cruz (The Peak)
Best morning radio host(s): The Kid Carson Show w/ Nira Arora & Amy (The Beat 94.5)

    How did things that are technically not in Vancouver, win a Best of Vancouver? (ie Tigh Na Mara, Kingfisher and Wickinnish)

    Not saying they are bad choices, just curious how a Best of Vancouver includes things not on the mainland, or is a wee bit outside of the 604 😉

  14. Rebecca Bollwitt says:

    @Tyler I think they include the getaway destinations since those are things Vancouverites enjoy and can do (and vote on).
