I have always felt that as Canadians we need to speak up more and promote our own blogging talents. We live in the best country in the world and we’re a little on the shy side, a lot on the polite side – not as in your face as some other countries (ahem: America). :) So it’s really great that the kind folks at Ninjamatics are doing all of us bloggers a favour by creating and hosting these awards.
It’s always an honour to be nominated, which I have before, but as these awards grow in popularity it seems even less likely that I will ever win because the talent in each category is out of this world. I’ve been going through the nominations in each category and with each blog I check out I am more and more impressed. We’ve got some great bloggers up here in Canada, eh?
The Urban Daddy has been nominated in three categories;
Family & Parenting,
and Lifetime Achievement.
In-tax-icating has been nominated in the Business & Career and Topical categories.
The Ninjamatics’ 2012 Canadian Weblog Awards are a juried competition which means — no voting – so I don’t have to ask (or beg) people to vote for me. Yay.
The nominees shortlist will be announced on January 15, 2013, and the winners will be announced on January 31, 2013.
A running blogroll of the nominees is kept on the Ninjamatica website throughout the year so that they can continue to highlight Canada’s blogging talent.
