So it begins

We have a lot of nominees for Best Blog and Best Post. I'm going to do those two in two rounds. You can only vote once for each question, but the top three blogs in those two categories will face off for the big prize starting on Wednesday morning. The others have fewer than five choices in each category, so we should be able to get through them in one round.

This ends on Tuesday night at midnight NWT time. If you haven't already, please click through and read the blogs in each category before you vote. Good luck to everyone! Remember, if you tell your readers to vote, you're more likely to win. :)

Which is the best blog in the NWT? The three blogs that get the most votes will "advance to the finals", as they say on Canadian Idol. The only difference is that this poll is much classier.

Prize: "I Am An NWT Blogger" T-shirt, handmade by
Jen of Nunavut.

I'm pretty sure there are sitting MLA's over here in Nunavut that don't get this many votes in an election. These are impressive numbers. Congrats.
