Bloggy Award Winner!

Breigh December 16, 2006 15

I was reviewed at Bloggyaward.com today.    I was quite surprised when I saw it on my bloglines with my blog on there but was pleasantly surprised to see that I was a Bloggy Award Winner.

The way the site works is, they review your site but only the really good ones get the ‘bloggy award’.   You have to get a 10 / 10 overall to get it, and I did! w00t! I’m totally stoked!  This is the first review I’ve gotten since I’ve done the site over.

Here’s what they had to say:

Canadutch is the personal log of a Canadian girl living in the Netherlands. The author summed up pretty nicely what her blog is all about when she said that Canadutch is “about my life and the struggle to find the balance of adapting to a new culture without forgetting my own.” Well it seems like she’s found her balance and living life well too.

Visual Aesthetics – 10

Very nice. Very neat. Very professional looking. And very user friendly. Great pics, great layout, and great color combination. Everything in the blog looks just right.

User Friendliness – 10

Again everything is exactly where it should be. Very readable text. Clear feature headings. Necessary navigation features all present and easy to find.

Reading Enjoyment – 9

A personal journal that’s actually enjoyable to read. Her posts are well written and other pages make for an interesting read. Be sure to read her Holland page if you want to learn something and be entertained. Anyone who’s a part of a couple will surely enjoy the Spats Page. The images she uses are also always related to her posts and add to the story being told. Good job!

User Info – 9

If you want to know more about Canada and Holland this is a good place to visit for an insiders point of view. You will also learn more about hedgehogs and the other pets the author keeps as well as various trivial facts the author happened to come upon.

Overall Experience - 10

One of the few personal blogs that really deserves a Bloggy Award. I guess the Canada/Netherlands combination is a winner.

I’m a happy camper now. The new theme appears to be a hit and I must admit it suits me much better than the old one. It’s nice to be blogging about life again as well, rather than constantly going on about blog traffic site stuff. Can thank Avitable for that!

    CONGRATS! They only gave me “7″ which I think is quite generous since my English sucks :)

    check out my blog because you’ve been tagged!!

    Here are The Rules:Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you”. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog.
