(Saskboy writes:) Thanks go out to my fellow CBA Operators, our many volunteers, and many thousands of our participants. I had a great time bringing you the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards, and look forward to witnessing another Canadian Blogosphere event like this one, to celebrate blogging in 2008. Good night!

    Congratulations to the winners, and also to the rest of the participants.

    But a very special recognition to the entire CBA crew, for a job well done. Did I say ‘well’? An EXCELLENT job!

    Keep up the good work guys! This has been a lot of fun; I got to know many blogs that were incredibly interesting. What a treat.

  2. Scott Tribe says:

    Well said Gabriel. Kudos to the CBA organizers for doing this under occasionally trying circumstances. The vote totals increasing after Round 1 shows there are a lot more then political blogs out there, and they draw more traffic.

    Congratulations to everybody and hats off to the organizers!

    Rock on, Yarn Harlot! At this rate, pretty soon they’ll be calling it in the Interknit.

  5. Andrew says:

    Excellent. Thank you very much for all your hard work, it was a lot of fun!

  6. Stephanie says:

    Well how about that. Thanks guys. This has been awesome.

    Good choice people.

    I can’t help but fell that “Mike’s Bloggity Blog Blob” was a bit of an oversight as third. Mike’s “best blog” about “the feminist movement” was incredibly sexist and the blog itself is just plain poor. SOrry to be the only critical person commenting. Perhaps if you had some sort of explanation that went along with the awards (maybe listing what it was that merited the award) I would feel less confused.

    Thank you.

    Hi Laura,
    “As selected by Canadian Blog Award voters, here are the rankings,” was the explanation in the second line of the post. Mike had more voters than all but two other blogs in the competition.

    It’s not an endorsement of the content of the blog by the CBA Operators, and rankings by popular vote isn’t the perfect method to gauge blog quality, but if you can suggest another method we’re open to new ideas. As with all things on blogs, your mileage may vary (AKA you can’t please everyone).

  17. What’s up, everything is going perfectly here and
    ofcourse every one is sharing facts, that’s truly excellent,
    keep up writing.

  18. What blogs for political discourse would you recommend
    me to see?
    I am looking both for websites giving impartial, balanced commentary
    on all problems or sites that have a left-wing or liberal slant.
    Thank you.

  19. Weak bones can fracture and break if you have osteoporosis.
    Now, obviously, these are special ladies who put in a lot
    of extra effort to accomplish some specific goals, but it does make a point.
    However, do not run or walk barefoot if you have serious illnesses
    such as diabetic neuropathy, skin lesions and poor circulation.
