You might not know this about us, but we're Canadian. Which means that we like bacon and maple syrup and Leonard Cohen and beavers and recreational activities involving ice (this includes shaking martinis, but not curling. Curling is dumb. Unless you do it while drinking martinis) and also means that we have a soft spot for other Canadian bloggers and also something of a sensitivity to being underappreciated by our neighbour to the south (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.)
It's awards season in the blogosphere, which means that conditions are ideal for the perfect storm of those sensitivities. DON'T FORGET THE CANADIANS, Y'ALL.
Babble recently listed their Top 50 Mommybloggers, and although I was thrilled to be in their top ten (you can see my profile - which is, I have to say, really very awesome and not at all ego-inflating because Canadians don't have egos - here), I couldn't help but notice that there were only two of us - two Canadians, that is - among the fifty (waving to Redneck Mommy!). Just two? Really? I mean, it's not that I think that we need affirmative action in lists like these, but I do think that it demonstrates that Canadian blogging talent is underexposed, eh?
So. I want to do our own list - we'll cross-post it on Canada Moms Blog because, duh - of The Best Canadian Mom Bloggers That You've Maybe Heard Of, Maybe Not, Or Maybe Didn't Even Know Were Canadian. And because I don't want this to be all elitisty-listy - and also because I want to find out who everybody thinks is great and not just look at my own same-old same-old blogrolls - I want suggestions. Who are you reading who is Canadian and awesome? Let us know in the comments, and we'll do us up our own lists and celebrate with bacon and maple syrup sandwiches.
(And for everyone who wishes that there was a truly representative and really honest-to-goodness Canadian version of all those blog award thingies out there: check out the brand new Canadian Weblog Awards, hosted by Schmutzie, who we love almost as much as bacon.)
