Voting has begun over at the Canadian Blog Awards. There are over 300 nominees in the 20 different categories. This blog has been nominated in two. Best Personal Blog and Best Blog Post. I have put together a list of noteworthy nominations that I recommend. Voting runs from today until next Tuesday. You can vote once each day (per computer).

Cool! Hey, I knew I'd been nominated in a couple of categories, but "best activities blog?" I don't even know what that means!

Thanks for the heads up!

Frank said...

Yeah, you're all over the place. I think the activities refers to the cuisine aspect of your blog. But if you want to start putting together blog activities, have at it.

I still don't know who nominated me for Best Personal Blog. I'm interested to see the outcome.

Yo! True to your Chicagoland roots. you are encouraging us to "vote early; vote often!"

Good luck!

Rachel said...

I hope you win Frank! There aren't enough truly personal blogs in the personal blogs category. People are such airbags. They think sharing a few shots from their phone cam is "personal". [ugh]

I'm with Auntie M, and have voted every day - even tried to vote twice in one day, but couldn't figure how to bribe the precinct captain...

Frank said...

auntie m: I thought of adding that line after the fact. Thanks for you vote(s).

rachel: thanks for the compliment. It always feels good to get feedback cuz I'm never sure what others think of what is written here. I write what I'd like to relay to friends and family and hope it interests them.

marathon mom/ biker chick: Thanks for the votes. That'll definitely increase the number of votes I figured I would get.

everyone: I did a bit of behind the scenes campaigning and it seems to have gotten out many more votes that I had expected. I may even have a chance to make the second round. Thank you for your votes.

Wah we're big losers, but Blork's probably gonna win for best "Activities" blog. He's made it to round two. C'mon let's bombard him with votes! :P

Frank said...

Yes, I was disappointed that a few of the blogs I voted for came up short by a dozen or less votes. I wasn't expecting to do well, but with all of the attention my snow removal post got in the past week, I thought I might have a chance.

Yeah, lets barrage blork. Maybe then he will start organizing "activities" like a blog bowling outing.
