Post WEGO Post

RubyWell, I won’t do the whole suspense thing.  Kind of tired after the festivities, but wanted to let you loves know that while Canvas didn’t win, a fantastic organization did!

The International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement has taken home top honors in the category of Best Ensemble Cast this year!

Check out this wonderful video tribute:

And one more great big thank you for all of your support!  Truly, without you, this wouldn’t have been worth a plugged nickel to us.  😉

  1. I bet WEGO had a hell of a hard time choosing just one out of the amazing lineup of finalists! And it’s a huge honor that Canvas was chosen to stand with them. It tells us that we are making a huge difference in people’s lives, so we better keep it up because we matter! And congrats to the winners. They sound like a fantastic organization. Congrats to all of us!

    • Yay! We’re all kings and queens.

      I like that philosophy, Soul Survivor, though reading through the comments we get makes me feel the ways we’re making a difference, and each of those individual voices does so much more for me, truth be told. 🙂

  2. Immensely proud of you all at Canvas. You’re doing a great job and to be nominated in this way is just the beginning, I hope, of the recognition you all deserve even though I know that not one of you contribute to this blog with such praise in mind.

    • Ken, thank you, you’re so kind to show your support to us (as always). Honestly, comments like yours are the kind of recognition I much prefer. 🙂

      • Yes, I know what you mean and feel the same for the comments you and others leave on mine.

        I guess the importance of your work though means I wish for ‘greater things’ than my comments. After all, no one reads your blog because I left a comment (if only I were that important 😉 ). But people DO read when awards are nominated and things like that. And in the end of the day, we both want Canvas being read by as many as possible who could find it helpful, I think.

        • I agree with you on the “we both want Canvas being read by as many as possible who could find it helpful, I think.” But I’ll let you in on a little secret. I (and my fellow authors) would not be keeping anything up for people to read and find helpful in the first place were it not for friends like you; those who read and support us whether we win awards, whether we have something which increases our visibility or not. And based on our continually growing subscriber base, our visibility has been very much increased — mostly due to things our own Team Canvas have done, word of mouth from our wonderful readers, and Blog For Mental Health as well.

          Again, none of which would be kept up without the support of wonderful people like you, Ken! 🙂

  3. Congratulations IAAM on both your work and this award!
    Clearly Canvas was walking with giants … and not only that, but is considered by WEGO to be amongst them.

    • It is so wonderful, what they do, and I’m delighted for them. Yep, we were among some amazing organizations, it kind of knocks my socks off!
