Gold Winner Colleen O’Dea, The Curtains are Open

Silver Winner Kayla Short, Short Presents

Bronze Winner Gillian Wesley, The Local Traveler

Colleen O’Dea welcomes anybody and everybody into her living room, dining room, the backseat of her car and into her brain via her blog. It’s a very real, very honest glimpse at day-to-day life in Halifax. “While I blog about my crazy life…it’s the people who have embraced Curtains are Open that make it what it is,” says O’Dea, who’s also the author of Full Speed Ahead. “Honestly, it still surprises me when folks stop me to tell me they ‘read me’. It’s weird and fabulous and awkward and wonderful…and so damn fantastic.”
