Hard core blogger

I received a phone call a couple days ago from a reporter for CBC radio news who was doing a story about the NWT Blog awards. He wanted my insite on why blogging is becoming so popular and the "northern blogger'' community. I chuckled as I heard the piece on the radio that night, that also had Megan on it. (Yes I checked and could not find it online). I received a call yesterday from the producer of the CBC morning show "Trailblazer", stating that they were very interested in my blog and wanted to do a full piece on it. I received a call from Randy, the host of the morning show and had a great chat with him about blogging in general and a few Northern blogs in particular. It was fun and quite the little "punch in the arm" for this little blog.

I must say, I'm very excited about this newfound light on the blog. As I'm sure everyone is aware, we are very proud of this blog. I keep saying that this is "my" blog, but it's not. It's become just as much Rob's blog as it is mine. Now that I am not working, I spend a lot (alright, probably too much) time on this and other blogs. But I love it, we love sharing our pictures and stories, and I'm thrilled that it's getting so much attention.
