As selected by Canadian Blog Award voters, here are the rankings for:

Best Blog

Presenting the award for Best Canadian Blog of 2008 are Santa Claus (actually CBA Operator Saskboy dressed up, believe it or not) and Dani’s friendly Tim Horton’s employee from Ottawa:

1. Yarn Harlot with 3144 votes (74.1%)


2. Smart Canucks with 439 votes (10.35%)


3. Attack of the Redneck Mommy with 264 votes (6.22%)

5. Mike’s Bloggity Blog with 197 votes (4.64%)

Total votes: 4243

And for a second year in a row, a knitting blog reigns supreme in the Canadian Blog Awards! It’s hard to argue that it’s the right choice, knitters are people who carry needles! And apparently it’s hard to compete with their blogs too.

A hearty, “Well done!” to all of this year’s participants in the Canadian Blog Awards, and from everyone else running the CBAs this year including Raphael and Jonathan, NBC Dipper and other volunteers, have a happy 2009. See you next year!

    It’s actually hard to argue it’s the right choice simply because it’s an extremely well written blog that has drawn a large, global audience. You don’t generate this kind of support without having something great to offer.

    I’m not surprised that a knitting blog won. After all, it’s not hard to imagine its readership sitting at home all day with plenty of time to write in with votes. Unlike our sports readership, who are primarily unemployed single men who surf the web in their parents’ basement…. Uhh, I was going somewhere with this, wasn’t I?

  3. Stephanie says:

    Well how about that. I’m tickled.

    An intelligent, witty, REAL person who welcomes us into her unpredictable and {through
    her retelling of her take on life} exceptionally entertaining daily circumstances – the Yarn Harlot gives us all something to take to heart

    And knitting isn’t all we do!
    The Harlot is popular and well known even Down Under in Australia where I knit. Her way with words makes every little incident in her life a snorting guffaw. She even coins new words that are listed in the New York Times!

  10. Pest control is a major consideration in organic gardening.

    The history of the plant is what gave me the clue
    on the common uses within my garden, during the Middle Ages whenever the
    rich went outdoors; they took along with them a small bouquet of the rue flowers to wade off the
    lice of vagabonds and beggars. They especially love hiding in mattresses, furniture
    and even behind wallpaper or picture frames.

    Everything published made a bunch of sense. But, what about
    this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a post title to maybe grab folk’s
    attention? I mean Best Blog of 2008 | Canadian Blog Awards is kinda boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write news titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
