This year’s local blog award for first goes to Ottawa’s Knitnut with nearly half of the popular vote. And this category was no lightweight! 745 votes were cast in the finals and 32 blogs nominated for contention. Second and third go to Windsor blogs, which apparently has a very vibrant blogging community. Fourth goes to the trendy Kitsilano area of Vancouver, while fifth is based out of Milton, Ontario. International Metropolis and Windsor Eats were also finalists in 2007. Congratulations to a strong showing from all participants.
