No Montreal, You're Still the Best

Posted by Jer / May 15, 2009

20090515bom.jpg The Montreal Mirror's "Best of Montreal" edition dropped yesterday and to our delightful surprise we somehow managed to win the "Best Local Blog" title for the 2nd year in a row. This despite my prediction last year that blogs would no longer be around in 2009.

We know the contest is a bit of a sham/vanity affair (how else could we really be on this list twice?). Still, like last year, the top ten abounds with supremely talented writers and bloggers and we're happy to be in their company. But as anyone who blogs will attest, it's not the writers that make the site, it's the audience. So here's a big heart-felt thanks to you, our readers, who've made writing for this site so much fun in the first place.

If you haven't picked up the Mirror's latest issue, be sure you do. It's a fantastically funny and thorough look at everything this city has to offer, from great bands to delicious food to more off-beat categories like the Montrealer Closest to Hell Winning this one is my goal for next year.

For anyone who voted for us - that we didn't pay to do so - thanks. Otherwise, everything I said last year still applies (especially the part where I said that indyish.com deserves more love).

And if any of the other folks from Team Poutine haven't skipped out for the long weekend, I encourage them to chime in with a few comments, thanking you in their own words.

Stay awesome, Montréal.

Someone once said, "A good movie is only as good as its script." Or was it "A home deck is only as good as its foundation" -- or maybe "A good dish of poutine is only as delicious as its curds"?

Either way, Midnight Poutine is what it is because of you guys, the readers, and your interaction with the site. Thanks for reading!
