Some newspapers have taken notice in the bloggers who cleaned up at the Canadian Blog Awards 2007 edition. Aside from the Windsor Star the other week, The Guelph Mercury and two Argentinian papers have had stories featuring the hometown online winners.

Live from Waterloo’s inspiring Best Blog Post Series about how his family came to Canada, got added exposure in South America.

Danielle Takacs’ blog won for Best New Blog, and it made the front page of the paper. Yes indeed, blogs are just that important ;-)

This is Food Court Lunch‘s first appearance in the Canadian Blog Awards. They made a gutsy (and foul mouthed) showing, and despite using kidnapping, extortion, murder, and bike destruction to sway voters, their strategy only earned 3rd place. Better luck next year dudes. They graciously(?) provided an acceptance speech for finishing in 3rd.

CBA Stats moment:

There were 389 votes in this category for Round 2.

Not a single Group blog in Round 2 finished in the same position as they held at the end of Round 1 voting. 282 votes were cast in Round 1.
