A Canuck in Cancun Wins the Bloggie!

I am a very happy blogger today, the winners of the 2009 Bloggies were announced yesterday at the SXSW conference in Texas and I am pleased to announce that this little blog was the winner in the category of "Best Latin American Blog". I was truly shocked, I didn't expect to win, the blogs in the Latin American category were great and I didn't think I had a chance. I want to tip my hat to the other competitors and to offer congratulations to all the category winners this year. I wish I had been able to attend the ceremony and do a shot with you all.

I would really like to thank all of you, my wonderful readers for your votes, your support and your continued reading and commenting. Obviously if it wasn't for you, I would just be talking to thin air and I wouldn't have received this honour. I know a lot of people feel that awards such as these are quite meaningless (and in the grand scheme of things, they are), but it makes me feel good to know that there are people reading and enjoying my little slice of life. I know that a blog or a blog award cannot change the world, but I can hope that at the very least I can brighten someone's day or provide some useful information.

Some of you may recall that when I announced my position as finalist, I offered to donate the prize money to R.A.P. Cancun Animal Rescue and I plan to do just that. It's such an incredibly worthwhile organization, I would like to ask each of you to join me, match my small donation and help an organization that offers so much to my adopted city. The prize money was a mere $20.09 USD, if you would like to make a matching donation (or more!), please check out their secure Paypal page.

Again, thanks to all, I hope you stick around for a long time to come, I'm not done yet!

Well, this voter wants to shake the hand of the successful candidate. I was going to post the notice of your victory on my blog today. But I got so angry at Congress that you were bumped -- but just for the day.
