I would like to publicly congratulate Don Sheppard for winning $1,000 in ComputerWorld Canada’s first-ever Blogging Idol event.
Don’s posts generated the most overall traffic, followed by Michel Labelle, who will be winning a Nikon CoolPix digital camera. Chris Lau also generated strong traffic and “fan” support.
The best part of Blogging Idol has been the chance to offer some new voices within the Canadian IT community some exposure to a wider audience. With that in mind, we welcome all our contestants to continue to use the blog site (hint to Don: Acceptance speech?) and develop the community that started with this contest. Hopefully, that will generate even more activity when the formal competition resumes next year.
A complete profile of Don will appear tomorrow on ITWorldCanada.com and in the July 4 issue of ComputerWorld Canada.
