The results for the first round of votes towards Canadian Blogs Awards are out.As you all know this blog had been nominated for Best Cultural Blog category.Unfortunately, this blog did not make it to the second round. You can see the results here. Does that surprise you? For sure it surprised me. I thought I had a better blog especially in that specific category of my nomination. What do you think?
What I know is that a lot of you voted for me. The numbers of e-mails, phone calls, sms etc. were overwhelming. THANK YOU very much to each one of you. That meant love, support, dedication, honor, respect and commitment towards Africa, culture, traditions, humanity and development.
This blog, at a wider point of view, stands for all of the above. Its people like you who, therefore, make it worthwhile to write, read and get challenged sometimes. I must also agree that the nomination made me feel good, made me feel that I am not just writing just in vain but for a live audience out there. Thank you to whoever suggested to the committee that I am nominated. That is enough reason for me to continue writing. I shall.
I wish the rest of the bloggers whose blogs have made it to second round all the best. Feel more than free to write what you think. Lastly, I know some of you will be mad that I did not win. To all of you please play the below video, stand up and dance to Three Little Birds by one of my all time legend, Bob Marley. Thanks a lot.
