2007 Canadian Blog Awards

the biggest day in the campaign – vote

Friend —

Barack Obama won an overwhelming victory in South Carolina on Saturday.

People came out in record numbers and voted for change. Now, after four early state contests, Barack has the most votes, the most delegates, and the most diverse coalition of supporters we’ve seen in a long time.

But this is no time to rest — the stakes are even higher tomorrow in the final days of the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards.

On January 30, 2008 at 11:59PM, voting in the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards will come to an end.

We have exactly one day to make this campaign count. Make sure to vote for right now to help Dave compete on the biggest day of the campaign:

Here are a few details about

– 180 Facebook members have joined the campaign facebook group
– 86% of readers are from Canada
– 43% of Canadian readers are from Edmonton, 24% are from Calgary.
– 8% of readers are from the United States. Barack Obama is from the United States.

The clear lesson we can learn from South Carolina in the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards is that voters are ready to bring America together and solve the problems that matter to ordinary Americans.

This election isn’t about race or gender, income level or education level.

It’s about the past and the future.

The moment to act is now. We’re campaigning from Alberta to Nova Scotia, from Saskatchewan to Ontario. Your vote right now is more important than ever. Please vote for today:

Yes. I’ve finally caved and bought a domain name.

It’s just being forwarded, so still works fine.

If anything, I can just sell it in a couple months and make at least $15 bucks.

As you may have noticed, the template of this blog has changed a bit. I’m proud to announce that this blog has joined 2007 and changed over to the “new blogger.” The jury is still out on the changes to blogger, but look forward to new and exciting changes to this blog in the near future (including my finishing updating the blog links on the recommended reading bar).

On another note, my life is returning to a semi-regular normality once again, so you can be sure to expect more regular posting in the forseeable future.
