I'm bursting with glee to announce Canadian Living received 2 very special awards at this year's Canadian Online Publishing Awards (COPA) this week.
This blog you're reading right now - The Food Blog - made the finalist list out of countless entries and now ranks among COPA'S top-10 blogs list. Having launched less than one year ago, we're ecstatic it's already so well-loved by our readers and our media peers. Thank you! And most exciting....... Canadian Living also won GOLD - the highest honour - for Best Use of Social Media with our first annual 2010 Crazy Cakes Contest! This contest attracted thousands of photo entries from creative cake bakers across Canada, and buzzed with activity in the Comments sections as entrants shared their cake baking tips, techniques and decorating advice with any admirers who asked. Our 2011 Crazy Cakes Contest has the same great community too. The key to social harmony? It just might be cake. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being loyal, supportive readers AND avid cake bakers. Without you, none of this would be possible. We're thinking of giving our Crazy Cakes Contest a facelift for 2012. Would you prefer to see a Pretty Cakes contest, or continue the fun with Crazy Cakes?
