Sun's "Best of the Blogs"!

Wow, I feel like I just won the Stanley Cup or the World Series of the Blogosphere!

The Toronto Sun mentioned my blog today in their Best of the Blogs series (What's Hot and on the Web)!! To be recognized by MSM is amazing. As much as we bloggers criticize television and the press, it's awesome to have this kind of publicity. The Sun is one of my favourite papers, because their sardonic editorial perspective doesn't pull any punches.

The National Post is another must-read, because of solid news coverage and a balance of opinion. They also tend to publish my 'Letters to the Editor' more than any other paper. (One friend remarked that I seem to have a regular column in the Post.)

The Sun, however, is certainly ahead of the pack with their regular blog-recognition site available under Comment. Newspapers that ignore the wealth of opinion in cyberspace will be left in the dust.

Oh, and a little note to G.G. Michaelle Jean: Now you're not the only one who's "Hot".

I'm thrilled to see your incredible blog getting the recognition it deserves! I always enjoy reading your insights and hopefully even more people will now get to benefit from your astute take on politics and life.

Thanks Steph. It's a great milestone on my Journey. Giving birth to two amazing children and watching them grow up into awesome adults is still number one.

Congratulations Joanne - I noticed your mention myself this morning and almost splat my expresso all over the kitchen.

It's nice to see the Sun digs around the blogs a bit and don't always just use the big names.

Thanks, Brian. I think my sense of political irreverence appeals to them.

Hope that expresso wasn't too hot. Don't want ya suing me!

Holy cow! Thats amazing that you were mentioned by the MSM!

You should be super proud what an honour to be mentioned. The blog community is only helped by your mention and I must say it is well deserved. This blog is great and has some good attitude in it!

Keep up the good work and DAMN the sun article was exciting stuff!

Thanks for the enthusiastic endorsement, Riley! Your blog is a must-read for me as well. I truly do hope you enter politics someday. Canada needs young people like you who actually care, and dare to question the party line.

You are the type of young Liberal who will redeem the party. Ultimately, the country is best served by a party system built on principle; not political expedience.
