The 2013 Canadian Weblog Awards winners are here!
Over the past year, the 2013 Canadian Weblog Awards saw 492 weblogs nominated across 34 categories. Our 34 volunteer jurors worked hard over the course of this November and December using our 10 criteria to judge each of the 492 weblogs in the first round and each of the approximately 170 weblogs in the second round to arrive at our winners.
Each of our jurors stepped forward to volunteer hours of their time and energy to make these awards possible. We quite simply could not exist without them and their dedication to fostering quality in the Canadian blogging community. All of this is thanks to them, and I am honoured by their involvement. Thank you!
And now it's time! We are excited to announce the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in the 2013 Canadian Weblog Awards!
