My Blahg is hosting the annual Canadian Blog Awards. Round One voting closes this Tuesday, Nov. 21st.

Awards are kinda fun and there’s suspense involved…you go to the various categories and cast your one vote per day….once done a page appears that shows the percentage of votes, but doesn’t tell you which sites they are for…..hooooooo, mystery and intrigue!!!!

While I’ve been nominated in three categories, what I like best is many I have on my blogroll links have been nominated, and it makes me feel proud to have friends and fave sites in the running. Now that’s cool!!! Many who should have been nominated, weren’t…and that’s my own fault as I could have done that, but didn’t! Ah well, I know better now for next year.

Here’s my blogroll and the categories they are in. I hope you’ll go to CBA and cast your vote per day for your choice of who’s listed here. Click beside the name then scroll to the bottom and hit ‘submit’. Have fun!!!

    What about famous stupid people. I love that one. Montreal Simon is by far the best writer amongst us. And you Scout, have the most creative and innovative sense of humour I’ve seen in years.

    Congrats on all your nominations! I think I nominated you for best humour, but I’m sure a lot of other peeps did too. I had no idea til now that I was nominated in the progressive category — eep! — I feel embarassed, in the company of primo writers like bruce and simon. But yes, I am voting each and every day.

    Congrats! on your nomination.

  • 4. scout  |  November 18, 2006 at 11:34 am

    hey waterboy….well no one nominated ‘famous stupid people’, so it remains faceless in the awards….thanks for the compliment 🙂 . simon is indeed a great writer….so is bruce, jj, alison, ach, so many!!!! you’re no slouch yourself at the keyboards and all of you have one thing i’ve always lacked and don’t care about…..syntax and grammar!!!!

    jj, hey thanks! and i dont know what happened as i nominated you in best new blog, along with some others. hmm. i’m sure it’s been overwhelming for them at my blahg and thats one hell of a lot of html so i’m sure things got lost. i should have checked back i guess.

    timethief, thanks! i’m going to suggest for next year there be a ‘best environmental’ catagory, you bring so much to us and it’s a super important category, especially with rona , steve , et al at the helm.

    let’s hope many of the people here get awards!!!!!!! 😀

  • 5. Q  |  November 18, 2006 at 1:11 pm

    Well this is tres interesting, I see best blog post series has my two favorite gals from Bowen Isle. Okay, you’re the only two people I know from Bowen Isle., but I’m open for bribes anyway.

    Q, ha, nicely worded about the two gals from bowen island….as in the ONLY two gals from bowen you know :). i’d offer my first born but she’s grown up and going steady (whoa, is that an old term or what??). hmm, how about a cheque for 5 cents?

    sheena, yay yay yay!!! ha, it’s like a party!

    the anon, many thanks 🙂

    jj, ya, where have i seen that, either on bruce’s or simon’s blog….it’s a cool site. i ‘ve recently recovered a few lost links and want to hold off additions for now as get overwhelmed sometimes visiting all of them (which i love to do).
