Through Jon Swift, I have learned that we move to canada is a finalist in the 2008 Weblog Awards, in the category of Best Canadian Blog.
Wmtc is not the best Canadian blog, but neither are any of the other nominees. And I say that with the utmost respect and admiration for my fellow progressive bloggers who were nominated: Saskboy, Buckdog, and Calgary Grit (see? I didn't forget you). It's a bit silly, calling any of us the best Canadian blog.
On the other hand, it would be nice to prevent any of the wingnuts on the finalist list from claiming influence and popularity that they don't deserve. Surely the Best Canadian Blog shouldn't be written by people who would remake Canada in the US's godly image. To look at the list, you'd think Canada was, well, Texas.
I keep saying I'm going to ignore all these awards, that they don't mean anything... then I get into it anyway.
Voting begins Monday, January 5.
