It has been a long hard battle for our winners this year. We had more nominees than in any previous contest, and our web traffic went through the roof (over 40,000 new visitors for this contest alone!) Contestants were pumping their Facebook and Twitter accounts spreading the word, and sites all around the world linked to the contest. To say it was well-read, would be an understatement. But who cares about that crap!? You want to know who won, right?
Looks like San Francisco edged out the greater Bay Area contestants, but not by much. It was a very close contest.

We had a blast with the contest, and we thank our nominees and winners for being such good sports. You can send in nominations for next year’s contest to theFrontSteps@gmail.com, or put it in the comments below.
With this, we bid you a safe and happy holiday season and Happy New Year!
We do have one more post for the year, so look for that tomorrow It’s up. Otherwise, we’re taking a brief hiatus from theFrontSteps to focus on PocketListings.net, so make sure to check it out and follow @pocketlistings on Twitter for updates. Scheduled launch in January 2010.
