I got a lot of good news this week and I wanted to take a moment to share it with you:
Churchill Award For FierceContentManagement Newsletter
I heard from my publisher at FierceContentManagement that the company had acknowledged my work by giving me the Churchill Award for Editorial Excellence. They announced the award at a company meeting this week. I was pleased and honored to have my work recognized in this way.
Invited to be a Judge for Alfresco Customer Award
I also was asked this week to be a judge for the Alfresco Customer Award. I'm not sure what this entails yet, but it should give me the opportunity to learn more about Alfresco customers in-depth which I hope will give me some deeper insight into the needs of content management customers in general.
Started Tech Connections Group at TwitterDoIt.com
Lisa Johnson, who runs the new social networking site called TwitterDoIt.com invited me to join and start my own group and I accepted. I'm now running the Tech Connections group where we discuss technology subjects. Please come on over and join us. I run discussions and post a blog entry or two per week. And there's lots of other interesting stuff to learn about there too while you're at it.
Invited to Speak on a Panel on Social Media
I was invited on Friday to particpate on a social media panel for the Hidden Tech Group. Not surprisingly I'll be discussing how I use to social media as a freelance writer to promote my work. I'm very excited about it, especially since one of my goals for the coming year was to begin speaking publicly, something I've been shy about doing in the past.
So you have to admit, all in all, it was a pretty good week for me and you'll have to excuse me for tooting my own horn.
