Thank you, Vancouver!!!


The winners of the Georgia Straight’s annual Best of Vancouver were announced today and I’m extremely happy to let you know that we won the Best Local Blog category! A massive thanks is due to every one of you readers who voted for us, letting us know we’re doing a good thing over here. We got 3rd place last year and since then have tweaked our publishing strategy, asking you more often what you’d like to see here on V.I.A. and then trying our best to deliver more of it to you (and less of the stuff you don’t like).


This is the 7th time we’ve placed in the top 3 in this category since we launched 7 and a half years ago, and the 4th time we’ve taken 1st place. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your continued support of what we do, bringing you stories about all of the awesome things that remind you why you call this wonderful city your home, despite the bad!
