Apparently my blog received a first place award in the Family/ Parenting category of the 2014 Schmutzie Canadian Blog Awards this week. I had never heard of the these awards and don’t know when or by whom I was nominated, but am grateful nonetheless. The awards are based on Design (usability & accessibility, functionality, interactivity, aesthetics) and Content (originality, intelligibility & clarity, updated regularly, attention to detail and how engaging it is). Proper domain names and category fit are also taken into account (no blogspot.com, etc). I don’t receive any special prize other than the little first place button and the knowledge that I have a good idea about how to blog well. Yahoo!
