Proud Canadian Blogger!

I love reading blogs.  Most of the bloggers I "meet" are American of course, and some are British or Australian.  But occasionally I get a little thrill when I realise that a blogger is Canadian!  To show my Canadian pride, I created this badge to share.  Feel free to download it and use it without attribution.  The maple leaf graphic is from www.openclipart.org.  The background is transparent.





Proud Canadian Blogger

Some of my favourite Canadian blogs are:

Life in the Fun Lane - This blogger actually lives in the same city as I do!  Which makes me kind of feel like a stalker when I read her blog.
A Pretty Life in the Suburbs - Jo-Anna gave me a bit of a shock when I came across her blog...she's my doppelgänger.  We have the same name, write a "pretty life" blog, and are both Canadian.
Canadian Cottage - I love this woman's houses (old and new) and her decorating style.


If you've added this badge to your blog, I'd love to have you link up here so I can visit! Add your blog link below:

  17. Holy cow! You have no idea how excited I was to just stumble upon another blog and see this badge. And then I got super freakin' excited when I clicked on it and found out I could be a part of the Canadian blogger party :) But seriously, I've felt like this little small lost Canadian blog amongst a lot of big, bad, America blogs (which i still love of course). Thanks :)

  29. Thanks everyone for commenting! I had fun creating the badge. I'm off to explore your blogs! I guess I should put the badge back on my own blog. It didn't make it back after I reorganised a bit.

  34. Hi Joanna,

    I've always been curious about this badge whenever I came across it on other blogs. I was under the impression that you had to have been featured somewhere to get it! Today, I thought, let's see what this is about...so glad I did! I've copied and pasted it on my blog as of today. Thanks so much! It really is so well done and I'm so proud to be a Canadian, albeit one who lives abroad. Hope you'll come by and visit some time. Thanks again.

    Happy Tuesday!

      Your blog looks fascinating! I will take a closer look as soon as I can. I've always loved the idea of living in Europe.

  35. Hello Joanna! It's always nice to meet another Canadian blogger! I saw your button on a blog and followed it to here - glad I did too! Hey, I've just started a Facebook interest group for Canadian bloggers and it's here: https://www.facebook.com/lists/361754750580998, so we can read Canadian blog posts all on one page. If you'd like your page on there, let me know and we've also got a private Facebook group to go with that too if you'd like to join us there too.
