Yesterday the winners of the Canadian Weblog Awards for 2012 were announced. I had entered myself in the contest – don’t sneer, we all do it – under three categories: parenting/family blogs; new blogs; and humour blogs.
Unlike the scores of other awards floating around the blogosphere, these are juried awards. There were over 800 submissions. A panel of judges narrowed it down to a shortlist. I made it through to the shortlist of 5 blogs under Best New Weblog and Best Humour Blog categories.
Yesterday, after obsessively checking the award website over and over again, all day long, I saw my blog listed! I did a little dance. Second place for best humour blog!
Now that I’ve had time to let this news sink in a little, I’ve decided to claim the title of Second Funniest Blogger in Canada in 2012!
Aside from the fact that my son still insists that only one person can be a winner and everyone else is a loser… I still feel like a winner.
