The Nunies are over for another year, and the winners have been chosen. One of the most interesting things (to my mind anyway) of The Nunies this year was the enthusiasm of the new blogs and their fans. Best New Blog was by far the most voted on category, and the closest race. It is refreshing to see that even though the Territory has lost some great bloggers there are a whole new crop of great bloggers to step in and fill any void. And so, on to the winners.
Best New Blog
It was a close contest, but one blog led throughout the voting, and emerged as the winner in this Category. And that winner is a couple blogging out of Chesterfield Inlet, The Arctic Post.
And the top honours this year, Best Blog, go to Townie Bastard. Well deserved honours indeed.
I'll email all the winners jpegs of the appropriate Nunie Badge that they can post on their blog if they wish. All three category winning blogs will receive their choice of a book of Black and White photos of Arctic Bay or an Arctic Bay knit cap. In addition there is an inuksuk carving donated by Indigo for the Best New Blog, and a personalized mug donated by Jen of Nunavut for the Best New Post.
Congratulations to the winners, the nominees, and to all the blogging community in Nunavut. It is a diverse group of blogs that make up that community, as are the people behind them. All of them are well worth your time to check out and read, you'll no doubt find some favourites amongst them. You'll find all the Nunavut Blogs (that I'm aware of) at Nunavut Blogs!
