Holding Onto My Hat

I will be announcing the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the first ever Canadian Weblog Awards tonight, and I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED. I am trying to concentrate on tabulating the last of the jurors' scores, but it's all I can do to keep from bouncing around my apartment until I make the announcement tonight at 12:00 a.m. EST.

The announcement tonight is the culmination of more than a year of dreaming big, a lot of hard work, and an incredible amount of support and encouragement from the blogging community both here in Canada and abroad, and I am both humbled and honoured to find the awards at the end of their first year and perched on the precipice of 2011.

Before I dive back into spreadsheets and HTML and hundreds of weblogs, I just want to thank you, every one of you, whether you be readers or bloggers, for creating this huge and diverse community that is Canadian blogging.

Thank you.

See you tonight with our first ever group of 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards winners!
