A Day That Will Live in Infamy

Always a bridesmaid! Torontoist has been a finalist for Best Canadian Blog at the Bloggies—basically, the Oscars of the blogging world—for three of the last four years, but we haven’t yet won. That sad fact didn’t change today, when winners were announced down at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and we were defeated by Everybody Likes Sandwiches, a food blog that must now, out of necessity, become our greatest enemy. You can see the trauma we experienced above, live in the IRC channel that the Bloggies had set up to broadcast the event for those who couldn’t make it to Austin (allaboutgeorge_ was the one announcing the winners). Thanks to everyone who voted for us! If the Bloggies are the online Oscars, we are henceforth making it our mission to become their Kate Winslet, which means we’re only like three years away from actually winning something.
