Oh well.

in How I love the Interwebs

This is the first year since I started blogging that I didn’t make it through to the final round of voting for the Canadian Blog Awards. There’s a good chance I’d be pouting right now if I weren’t so happy to see the blogs that DID make it to the final round, including two of my favourite bloggers (Don Mills Diva and Fawn) and two of the blogs I personally nominated (Under the Mad Hat and Party of 3).

If this news had come during my funk last week, I’m sure I’d have taken it extremely personally, wondering if I’d jumped the shark bloggily speaking. But after spending a thoroughly wonderful weekend having a visit from Marla and Josephine and having dinner with Andrea and her lovely family and then attending a baby shower for one of my very favourite people in the whole world, it’s hard to be unhappy about anything!

If you aren’t reading any of these fabulous blogs, you should be. Congratulations to all the nominees! Now I have to figure out how to get three more IP addresses so I can vote for all of them.

Oh well… another year. My photo blog didn’t make it either…

Dani, I had no idea how my blog came to be nominated, and now I find out that it was you! You have no idea how amazed and humbled I am to find out that one of the bloggers I admire most likes my blog enough to nominate it. I’m sorry that you didn’t make it to round 2 this year, but I’m glad you had such a great weekend. Thank you again.

Now we have only 12 months to plan for next year’s bloggies…

Aww – thank you so much for the kind words – you were one of the first blogs I ever read and you’re definitely an inspiration!

Dani, I’m blushing — one of your favourites? Awwww.

You’re definitely one of my favourites — like Don Mills Diva, yours is one of the first blogs I ever read.

You. Totally. Rock.

Sorry to hear Postcards didn’t make it through this year! You had my vote. But thanks for such a generous post about some of the other nominees: I’ve not read 3 of the 4 you listed, basically sticking to you, Popwatch, Bea, Mad, Fishbowl and Josephine. I’ll have to check out the others. My lil’ private blog suffered some serious cobwebs of late (2 months with no posts) – just could not get to it. I don’t know how you keep it up! There should be an award for rock steady dependable posting 🙂
