Canadian blog awards

After much hemming and hawing about whether or not to mention this, I have decided once again to interrupt my 10-part series on Turkey to announce that this space has been nominated for Best Personal Blog in this year’s Canadian Blog Awards.

Much hemming and hawing because I am terrible at self-promotion of any kind, in real life as well as blogging.

But if you’re not doing anything over the next two minutes… you could, like…vote, eh? You’ll have to scroll down a bit to find the Letters Home name, but it’s there.

In true Canadian style, if I make it past the first round I’ll be more than happy.

Thanks to blogging pal Indeterminacy for the nomination.πŸ™‚

    Just voted, and it was very quick (took less than 30 sec) — just klicked on Best Canadian Blog Award, and then you “fill in” the dot, klick on VOTE, and voila!

    Thanks for your blog — I really enjoy your travelogues and commentaries on Germany. Nearly makes me homesick, as I’m stuck here in the frozen North…

    And from a new reader, no less. Hope you’re not homesick, Naturelady.πŸ™‚

    Nurse, your vote should be worth worth 10, since it comes from so far away from someone so good.

    Ian, you got my vote. Do you know if you can vote more than one time? Sure hope you win, especially if it means that you get front row tickets to the Stanley Cup.

    My vote has been cast!

    P.S. I have the attention span of a gnat these days, but I’m slowly working my way through your fascinating Turkey posts. Very, very nice.

    Have just voted – took me a little longer than 30 secs but that was internet failure on this side! Really enjoy your blog – still wanting to finish the Turkey series.

    I am not a Canadian but think many Canadians are very nice and deserve awards. So I voted. For you. Hope it’s ok for non-Canucks to participate. Your blog is awesome, and VERY personal; you deserve to win. Very much enjoyed your self-promotion.πŸ™‚
