This morning I woke up to two Google Alerts: One for my name, thanks to news organizations crediting me a video I shared from the soccer match last night, and the other was a hit for Miss604 from the Vancouver Courier.
I completely missed the voting period this year so I didn’t even realize that it about the right time of year for the Vancouver Courier to release the results of their annual Stars of Vancouver poll. I was very excited to see that I won Best Local Blogger! Thank you to the readers of the Courier for voting, and bestowing this honour upon me again this year. It really means a lot to have my work recognized like this.
