Canadian Weblog Awards

Founder and Designer

The Canadian Weblog Awards, which began in 2010, promotes good weblogs of all genres from across Canada year round through regular interviews, articles, and the nomination, judging, and an award process that culminates with the announcement of the top three weblogs in each category on December 1st. The Canadian Weblog Awards are about quality not popularity, so there is no public vote, and each weblog is judged by a volunteer jury against a set of criteria.

Grace in Small Things

The disconcerting news is how many instances of women being absent from or underrepresented in the public arena were reported. Too many of us have attended a conference with all or mostly male panels, watched legislative hearings featuring men and more men, read magazine roundtables, anthologies, “top ten” lists and found few, if any women.

The really good news is how many people want to do something about it.

GenderAvenger is not about thousands of names on petitions (though anyone can start one) or fifteen minutes of social media hype (though that would be ok). It is about a whole lot of individuals who challenge decision makers at all levels by pointing out “absences” and asking that they be corrected.

#BlogNow, a sometimes monthly twitter chat since 2011, is where we talk about the state of blogging: what it is, where we are as bloggers, and where blogging is going.
