If you’ll permit me a little self-congratulatory plug: this blog, Margin Notes, was named the best blog at the first-ever Canadian Online Publishing Awards on Monday. It won in the “blue” division for business-to-business, professional association and scholarly websites. (The full gallery of finalists and winners is here).
I’m very pleased and honoured for the recognition — of course, you’d expect me to say that — but even more satisfied for the roughly 2,500 unique visitors who check out this page each month. I know some of you are regular viewers, while many others may simply come across me in passing; either way, I hope you find something of interest.
And please, I’d love to hear from you. If you do or don’t agree with something I’ve said, or wish to add another perspective or other information, don’t hesitate to use the comment function just below and add your two cents’ worth. That certainly makes it a richer experience for me personally, and I believe for other readers as well.
P.S.: the University Affairs website was a finalist in the categories of overall best magazine website and overall best design; and my colleague Carolyn Steele was also a finalist in the best blog category for her Career Sense blog. Congratulations to all.
