Yeggies and Booklets

Hello readers of my work blog. I attended the third annual Edmonton New Media Awards (better known as “The Yeggies”) on May 9. RadicalCitizenMedia.com was short-listed for the second year in a row in the category of “Best in Politics or Current Affairs.” Although I did not win, it was super to have my work recognized by Edmonton’s social media community. However, I am happy to say that I Heart Edmonton, the blog for which I write book reviews, won “Best in Edmonton!”

Another booklet in the series of historical/educational titles about the McCauley neighbourhood should be heading to print soon. This latest one is on Chinatown. I am also currently overseeing the next booklet, which will be on the Aboriginal aspects of McCauley. These booklets are being produced in partnership with McCauley Revitalization/City of Edmonton.

Yeggies and Television

It’s been really busy around here at camp Words, Pictures, Music. My first major update is that is you enjoy watching From the Ground Up on Shaw Television, it is now showing on weekday mornings at 7:30 a.m., weekend mornings at 9:30 a.m., and a Saturday evening show at 7 p.m.

Next, my work was recently nominated in two categories at The Yeggies (Edmonton New Media Awards). Boyle McCauley News, which I edit, was nominated in the category of Best in Non-Profit. Radical Citizen Media was nominated in Best In Politics or Current Affairs. Although the award went to others in both categories, it was definitely an honour to be nominated.
