Congratulations: placeandthyme.com

For the past two week, Ottawa Citizen columnist Alex Munter has been running a contest to find Ottawa's "best local blog" -- "who is doing a great job telling our community's stories online?"

This morning he announced that Lana Stewart's placeandthyme.com was the winner. Congratulations, Lana!

I couldn't agree more, although I'm biased since I nominated her.

Also, welcome to any Citizen readers and/or Lana-fans dropping by via placeandthyme (thanks, Lana!). Hope you find something of interest to read or look at.

In the interests of full disclosure, I have won a "Citizen swag bag" full of goodies for my efforts. So I guess I should thank Lana for having such an obviously great blog! Here's an excerpt of what I wrote to Alex Munter. The part he quoted in today's winner-announcing article is in italics:

I know Lana, but that's not why I visit placeandthyme.com. [...] I visit placeandthyme.com every day because Lana almost always has a fresh take on Ottawa and the downtown neighbourhoods I live, work, and play in. She combines interesting photography with a sharp, quirky wit to create what I think is quite a unique site.
