176,000 Thank-You’s, A Clawbie and a Dip in a Canadian Lake
Well another year is in the bag. ¬†I celebrate this time of year with a traditional dip in a Canadian Lake. ¬†I’ve been lucky enough to have my eldest son join me in this nonsensical¬†tradition for the past three years running. ¬†So here is this year’s photo evidence of this fine feat.
This time of year the Canadian Law Blog Awards are also handed out. ¬†I was¬†honoured¬†to have this blog rank as runner-up for the Fodden Award for Best Canadian Blog.
Thank you to all who¬†nominated¬†this blog and to Steve Matthews, Simon Fodden and Jordan Furlong for your kind words. ¬†I should note that the Clawbies are far less about winning than they are about the nomination process. ¬† Many fine blogs made the final cut this year and I encourage you to check them all out here.
Lastly, while I don’t closely monitor¬†analytics,¬† this time of year I like to check in to see what kind of an audience my blog has drawn. ¬†An astounding 173,962 people have taken the time visit this blog in 2012.
Considering the very narrow focus of this blog I am amazed by this number. ¬†A big thank you to all of you. ¬†2013 will be the 6th Calendar Year in which I author this blog. ¬†I intend to put in another solid year and hope you continue to visit this humble¬†slice of the blogosphere.
Happy and prosperous 2013 everyone. ¬†Now go jump in a lake!
