Welp. The Circle of Moms Top 25 Canadian Mom blog contest thingie has ended and I lost.

Or did I...?

I don't usually jump into those voting contests, but I wanted to reach out to Canadian bloggers. Because I'm Canadian. (Sorry!).

I was hoping that I was unique enough, with the whole animation thing, that I could stand a chance of making it into the Top 25 and maybe gain some recognition. But these vote-every-day contests are prolly not a measure of distinction, nor are they a measure of popularity. They reflect one's ability to rally the troops to click that little pink heart every single day.

And that's just not me. Cuz you know that I would rather be drawing than vote-slutting.

However, I did discover a couple of homegrown blogs that I really liked: Colleen Anthony's Curtains are Open, and "t" McCallan's Happy Soul Project. And I reconnected with my friend Tanya Toledano from the blog.

But my big win here is that I have YOU. Every single one of your votes was the richest, sweetest cream of the crop. My tribe may be small, but it's a quality tribe.

This little pink heart is for you...because I love you.

Thank-you for letting me be annoying, spam your groups, bump the Facebook convo's and basically twerk the Internet badly.

And now, it's back to the old drawing board.


  1. Awwww sweet! You're a winner in my book. Hugs :-)

  2. Awwww.... and here I thought I won because I found this really cool animation blog in the process!!! Thank you so much for the shout out! My Dad pimped himself out big time to get me all the votes! To be honest...I'm afraid the end of the contest has now left a massive void in his life. I'm like you...back to the drawing board (OK...whatever, I can't draw but I've gotta design a website!!!) xo

    1. How gracious you are! Your blog is great - I like blogs with stories. You should tell your dad to start a social media marketing biz!

  3. I'll like the rock bottom of your blog. ;-)

    You have the essentials anyway. Vote-a-thons are not really a huge indication of that.

    1. I think you're the first person to comment on the rock bottom. ;-)

  4. Love it good. And thanks for the little pink heart... xoxox


Cuz You Rocketh.
