I wanted to extend a big, no huge, Thank You to those of you who voted for Living Snoqualmie in King 5’s Best of Western Washington Contest, “Best Neighborhood Blog” category.
King 5 announced the results on Friday, November 2nd, and Living Snoqualmie finished in 2nd place, sandwiched in between West Seattle Blog and B-Town Blog with two other Seattle blogs rounding out the top 5. There were 70 blogs in the running.
Kind of ironically, West Seattle and B-Town Blogs (Burien) are the blogs of my home towns – and are both huge, amazing local blogs. Considering Living Snoqualmie is relatively new and has a smaller reader base than other top finishers (one has 8,000 Facebook likes and another close to 5,000), it says a lot about Living Snoqualmie readers.
So, again, huge THANK YOU to readers and to voters. None of this works (or is possible) without this community – and it’s a pretty awesome community.
The Old Hen finished in 3rd place for Best Food Blog, too. The Old Hen B&B is a Snoqualmie Valley Favorite and Deanna has a great way of making me starving each time I read. Congrats!
Was your valley business also in the contest? Let me know your results so I can announce it, too.
