(thanks again to the Toronto Lawyers PLZ for affording me the time to do this)

  1. […] site (Canadian Atheist) has been nominated for a 2010 Canadian Blog Award under the “Religion and Philosophy” category! We’re the only non-Christian blog in the […]

  2. […] you haven’t worked out why I am displeased yet, well it seems that no one nominated me for a Canadian Blog Award. I guess my Auntie was right all along – “Ask and you don’t […]

  3. sorry, can’t twitter, don’t know what it is, don’t know how to do it, don’t want to learn … whatever he says is miscategorized in science when it should be in religion, I probably made that mistake when I nominated it. I’ve renominated it in the right category, could you take it out of science please? Thanks

    If you have been nominated, what next? How are the finalists picked?

  5. Hello there–Thank you Dave for the honour of nominating Whatever He Says. Another reader also nominated us–a double honour. We are still in Science though! Yikes, we are far from scientific. 🙂 I will check back tomorrow.

  6. Hi Jonathan, I tried to send you a message on Twitter about being “misdiagnosed” as a scientist, but you can only send a direct message to someone who follows you.

  7. alicia Gilby says:

    how many nominations does it take to get on the list. i dont see the blog i nominated.

  8. Can we get an updated list please? Several people have told me that they nominated my blog, but it is not on the list. Thanks.

  9. […] for nominating me everyone! fridaysoff is on the list as a nominee for best new blog […]
