The voting for the 2012 Canadian Blog Awards Finals has closed

While I’m tallying the results, are there any businesses out there who want to give prizes to our runners up and/or winners?

This is a great way to get free promotion for your business and to support the Canadian blogger community! There’s no fee, but you have to offer something decent or I won’t post it. Let me know at jonathan [at] jkleiman [dot] com.

Whether or not I’m able to line up worthy prizes for this years awards, the results will be posted shortly. Stay tuned!

Jonathan Kleiman, Toronto Business Lawyer and Small Claims Court Lawyer
