Concession speech

The losers at the Oscars say it's a honor just to be nominated. And you know what? They're right! The final results of  for the Nunies are in and while Babies and Bulldogs did really well in all three categories, it didn't win. That's ok though. I told Nick right from the beginning that I hoped people thought enough of my little blog to nominate it but I didn't really care if it won. Saying I didn't care is a little white lie because hey, who wouldn't want to win. But I considered being nominated a victory and that's enough for me.

The winner of Best Blog is Townie Bastard. I nominated him in this category too so obviously I agree. Townie is a great writer and talks about a wide variety of topics so it's always an interesting read. 

The winner of Best New Blog is The Arctic Post. This one is also one of my favorites and hits close to home since Carly and Etienne are also part of the RCMP family. She writes about their adventures in Chesterfield Inlet and it's always entertaining.

And finally, the winner for Best Post is First Boating Trip by Newbie in the North.Sarah tells the story of a great day out on the water and exploring an old whaling station. In the post she shows off (among other things) some amazing photos of an iceberg and a whale.  

These and all the finalists are well worth reading. They and many others are updated regularly on my sidebar so please take some time to check them out if you haven't already. So congratulations to all the winners and also to the blogs who didn't. And a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who voted for Babies and Bulldogs. I really appreciate it and hope you keep reading.
