I Heart Is Named 'Best In Edmonton'!

The best in Edmonton's online community was honoured last weekend at the third annual Yeggies!


IT'S a great feeling when you're recognized for the hard work you've put into something, am I right?! Yes, of course I'm right!

Whether it's an appreciative 'thank you' for doing the dishes or winning a frickin' YEGGIE AWARD for a local blog about to celebrate its sixth anniversary, it feels pretty damn good!

The Yeggies were handed out Saturday, March 9th

I am so excited and honoured to announce that I Heart Edmonton was just named 'Best In Edmonton' at the third annual Yeggies, which recognizes the best in Edmonton's online and social media community.

"The Yeggies is an awards show that highlights some of the amazing talent we have here in Edmonton," it says on their official website. "From people who code websites themselves to those who write, speak, draw, and all on their own time, Yeggies recipients inspire, evoke, inform, educate and entertain us. And they do it because they have a passion for it."

This initiative was started in 2013 by some of the most prolific and well-known social media experts in #yeg, including Adam Rozenhart and Brittney Le Blanc. And it continues to grow every year.

This year's 18 Yeggie medals were handed out Saturday night at La Cite francophone d'Edmonton, hosted by Rozenhart and Trent Wilkie. It was unfortunate that I was not able to make it to the show, but I was able to catch the last half hour's live Twitter feed.

I Heart Edmonton was named Best in Edmonton at the 3rd annual Yeggies!

That was my favourite Tweet ever: "The Yeggie for Best in Edmonton goes to @iheartedmonton!"

Honestly, it was awesome just being a part of the show, let alone winning my first Yeggie! So, thank you again to the amazing folks who put this show together, all of whom volunteered their own time.
