Lucky number three

12 Dec

The results for Best Family Blog at the Canadian Blog Awards just came out today. Out of the five blogs that were in the second round of voting, I came in third, which, considering my sole wish was to not come out last of the 28 nominees (I know, I aim really high, hunh?  Besides, the overall voting numbers weren’t released so I wouldn’t have had a clue if I’d been dead last.  Who knew?) is pretty darned great!

That there is what you call an award-winning run-on sentence.  It’s totally why I came in third.  (You can interpret that however you wish.)

First place went to The Mabelhood, and second place went to Don Mills Diva.  Fourth and fifth place went to Under the Mad Hat and Party of 3 respectively.  Congrats, ladies!  I feel so honoured to be in the company of these women because I’ve run across them in various places in the mommyblogging world, so I feel like the unknown element in a crowd of celebrities.  Aww, shucks.

Thanks to all of you who voted!  Yipee!


Updated to add: Two days after I found out about my nomination for Best Family Blog (so well into voting time), I discovered that my blog had also been nominated for Best Activities Blog.  Because of the delay and the fact that I had no idea what Best Activity Blog actually meant, I never actually mentioned it here.  But thank you so much to whoever nominated me, whoever you are.  (You know you’re driving me crazy with not knowing, don’t you?)

    Congratulations! You definitely deserve it.

    As an epileptic, I’ve really enjoyed your posts about the keto diet. I’ve often wondered how that would work.

    Well what the heck? I looked at the others and they pale in comparison, really. Didn’t find anything so interesting on them.

    So glad that you came in third out of Canada though! That’s great!

    Here’s to more great blogging.
