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 😉

    Hello how do you nominate a blog or get nominated. When does the contest open for 2008?

  2. saskboy says:

    Hi Chad,
    Nominations will open late in 2008, probably starting November or December. Look for more details as late as October. Nomination is easy when it opens. Just type in the address and name of the blog you want to see win, and the nomination list is voted upon once ready.

    Thanks for mentioning me and my ‘media exposure’, SaskBoy.

    Apparently, there’s more of this coming my way, as I’ve been recently contacted by the local newspaper about an article. I will let you know…

    Will there be a Canadian blog awards in 2008/9?? Can’t find much on the net…


  5. Saskboy says:

    Hi Holli,
    Yes there certainly will be. If me and a group don’t do it, then someone will. I’ll see to it that someone does one, even if I don’t work on it (but I plan to at this point).

    FYI, The Torch was profiled in the Canadian Forces magazine The Maple Leaf for winning the Best Milblog category. I can’t seem to embed the link in this comment, but the piece can be found in Vol. 11, No. 15 from 23 April 2008.

  7. saskboy says:

    Just pasting the link in plain text should work, and if it gets caught in the spam filter I’ll publish it. Thanks for letting everyone know, Damian.

  8. I hope you can include my blog for banquet managers in the next entry.

    Banquet, sure, you just need to come back when nominations are open later this year.
