First of all, I've updated my links section. I axed any blogs that hadn't been updated in the past month (including Andrew Coyne who is a manic depressive when it comes to his blog) and divided the links up. If I overlooked any blogs, let me know and I'll add them. I also added a Best of CalgaryGrit section on the right for anyone who's new to the blog and is, for whatever reason, feeling nostalgic about the federal election. Omitted from the "Best Of" section is my post after the debate where I say there is no way Stephen Harper can possibly lose the election.

I also encourage everyone to check out the "2004 Canadian Blog Awards", brought to you by My Blahg. You can vote once a day in a wide range of categories. This blog is up for "Best Liberal Blog" - I'm currently trying to get Margot Aftergood to run my campaign. Keeping in mind that, being a Liberal in Calgary, the candidates I vote for always fail miserably, I think deserving winners would be:

Best Blog - Inkless Wells
Best Liberal Blog - Warren Kinsella
Best Conservative Blog - Norman's Spectator
Best Group Blog - Freethought
Most Humourous Blog - Inkless Wells
Best Non-Political Blog - James Bow (although he did organize the election pool)
Best New Blog - Sean Incognito

And finally, Santa's best gift to me this year was "America: The Book", by Jon Stewart. I just finished it and it's absolutely hilarious. I encourage everyone to read it.


  • I'd like to nominate this blog for best L(l)iberal blog myself... not because I have anything against Warren's blog or his writings.. but because I like the setup and format of this blog better.

  • Just wondering.. is there anything out there in blog world in Canada that could be nominated for "Best Socialist/Social Democratic/New Democratic Blog? :)

  • Hey thanks for the vote of confidence! You honest-to-God made my day.

    Incidentally I got Stewart's tome for Xmas as well. It's the first time I've laughed out loud reading a book since reading my old Pogo treasuries.

  • Thank you for the endorsement! I'm still scratching my head over the nomination myself, but I'm guessing it's a matter of being non-partisan rather than non-political.
