I Backpack Canada nominated for Saskatchewan Tourism Award of Excellence

It appears karma is making me feel extra guilty for slowing my writing down. I Backpack Canada is one of the finalists for a Saskatchewan Tourism Award of Excellence. It looks like they filed me under Travel Media Award. Apparently all of those blog posts about my home province of Saskatchewan have caught the eye of some of the Tourism folks, and come April 20th, I’ll find out how I did. Unfortunately, I’ll be back in Halifax by then and won’t be able to attend the Saskatchewan Tourism Gala (blame school for getting in the way).

Perhaps this is the push I need to realize I’ve got to keep the blog alive! I’ve got a fair amount of travel booked over the next few months so hopefully I can continue to push out some decent content. In the meantime, I’ve got some things to do while I’m back in Regina for another couple weeks. Hopefully I’ll be able to churn out a couple posts out of this visit home. Wish me luck!

      Thanks Candice! Yea fingers crossed I actually win. Something nerdily satisfying with saying you have an “Award Winning Blog”. Haha believe it or not I have one mexico post done, but I keep re-reading it and thinking its not funny enough for candicedoestheworld.com. I’ll re-read it while I have time off and see what happens! Cheers!

    Way to go. It’s hard blogging with other activities but just a few posts a week will keep your blog alive – & you always have good stuff. Nice job and hope you win.

      Thanks leigh! Means a lot coming from you. I’ll be sure to buckle down soon and set a writing schedule that I can adhere to. I’ve never been good at the whole “Agenda” thing, but maybe that’s what I need. Thanks for believing in me.

      Unfortunately the award didn’t go to me. I wasn’t able to attend the Award show; however, I heard it ended up going to a book on birding in Saskatchewan. Not exactly my cup of tea but apparently its quite good. I’ll hopefully have a “update” post in the works explaining more. Thanks though, I’ll try my best to keep this puppy alive.
