A Nod from the CLawBies!

I'm very excited--I received a runner-up nod in Steve Matthews' 2007 CLawBies, the Canadian law blog awards. The category is Law Library Blog Award. The winners in this category are very deserving-- Michel-Adrien Sheppard's Library Boy blog and the BC Courthouse Society Law Library What's New Blog . Congratulations, both!

All the categories:

Best Canadian Law Blog (or Blogger) Award
Best Practitioner Support Blog
Legal Culture Award
Non-Legal Audience Award
Friend of the North Awards
EuroCan Connection Awards
Practice Management Award
Law Librarian Blog Award
Best Legal Technology Blog
Best New Law Blog Award
Law Professor Blog Award

Big winners this year are Rob Hyndman who won the Non-Legal Audience Award and tied for the Best Canadian Law Blog (or Blogger) Award and to Slaw for the Best Legal Technology Blog and runner-up for the Best Canadian Law Blog (or Blogger) Award.

The big news this year, though, is that the CLawBies have a new home on the web - http://www.clawbies.ca -- and Steve intends to turn this into a full awards with nominations and voting next year.

Congratulations to all the winners, and to Steve for helping to encourage law blogging in Canada!

Congrats, and I love the name of these awards. I wish I could think of something similar to suggest for the Canadian Blog Awards.
