Blog awards yadda yadda

Posted by andrea tomkins in: technical stuff

So apparently I’ve been nominated for some Canadian Blog Awards. Funny, how no one bothers to tell you these things. :)

As far as I can tell, I’m up for Best Blogosphere Citizen and Best Family Blog. Thank you to whoever nominated me! As for the rest of you, if you are so inclined you can mosey over to the website and cast a vote. I noticed they changed the voting system, which now makes this more interesting contest.

You can vote and check out all the other categories here.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
