Earlier this week, Social Media Examiner nominated The Anti-Social Media, along with 22 other outstanding blogs, as a finalist for the best social media blogs of 2011.
Wow. Who knew drawing stick figures and complaining about Facebook and how people tweet on the toilet would make some of the best social media content in 2011?
The comments, tweets, e-mails and other messages from all of my readers, both new and old, is overwhelming and such a positive force. My little anti-social heart grew two sizes today.
So, while I’m still feeling humbled and grateful, I want to thank three of my readers who initially nominated this blog for this honor.
- Angela Hall - I had the privilege of meeting Angela Hall back in December 2009. She recently left a job, and by using LinkedIn and her blog on SAS BI, landed a great job at the SAS Institute. I’m sure there’s more to it, but her story is practically a fairy tale of using social media to get a job. Angela has always proven to be extremely helpful, knowledgable, and an ever loyal fan.
- Christine Choi - I’ve known Christine Choi for pretty much a decade now. We went to high school together, then went separate ways to college. When we both moved back into the Raleigh area, we’ve connected and collaborated on a a bunch of creative and fun projects. She’s a great photographer and all around awesome creative. Also, her dog Theo is much cuter than you.
- Jennifer McClure - Jennifer McClure is someone who I consider to be a super woman. She extremely smart, talented, and friendly. She runs her own business. She plays a mean game of Words With Friends. I followed her on Twitter for years before getting the chance to meet her at #recruitcamp this year. I can always count on her to be in my corner.
Angela, Christine, and Jennifer - Thank you for believing in me.
Who has believed in you? Who are you thankful for online? Let’s get some recognition of awesome people going.
