The 2007 Canadian Blog Awards

The Canadian Blog Awards are growing up.

From 2004 – 2006 a tremendous amount of effort was put into recognition of Canadian blogs by one guy - Robert McClelland of MyBlahg. Now in best Canuck fashion, a bi-partisan board of bloggers have picked up what Robert began and worked so hard on.

The Canadian Blog Awards is an annual event on the Canadian Blogosphere in which Canadian Bloggers and Blog Readers vote to decide which blog is the best – either overall or within a category.

…The Canadian Blog Awards in 2007 are being organized by a diverse group of bloggers: Saskboy of Abandoned Stuff, NBC Dipper of Northern BC Dipper, Stephen Taylor of StephenTaylor.ca, Dani of Postcards from the Mothership, Jason Cherniak, and several blogging volunteers.

There are a lot of new categories (27) and nominations are now open.

The blog awards are an opportunity for readers to find blogs that might not cross our screens. 
The button that winning bloggers get to display is not at all ostentatious. 

There are three categories; general, political and interest.
Nomination rules have been kept as simple as the site interface.
Each of the 27 categories has a sentence describing it, and your nominations can be made in the category comment section.

There will be two rounds of voting lasting 7 days each.
Nominations are open until January 11, 2008.
I’ve counted approximately 157 blog nominations so far, give or take a few.
Spread the word and add your favorites. 

This year - no false modesty – no getting distracted and sidetracked. 
I plan to encourage, plead, cajole and nag you to vote for BDBO. I hate clutter on the sidebar, but truth be told, after five years of blogging, I want to go for a Canadian Blog award gold button and the incentive it gives.   Blogging is about community and religion and faith are about community. This year, I’m going to ask the BDBO community to step up to the vote button.
I’m proud of how blogging has grown in Canada, proud to be a part of our blogosphere, and I’m prepared to beg.;^)

BDBO has been nominated by Scott Tribe in Best Religious Blog category.
Thanks Scott.
Blog on!

    I’m known for being critical of my fellow Christians.
    And I wish I was better at communicating God’s love instead of just pointing out our all too appararent foibles.
    Most of us know the real deal from our time surfing around.

    You deserve to be there.

    I was supposed to email you to let you know your blog had been submitted. Got sidetracked.:^)
    Blog on!
