I am honored to be nominated for an #eventprofs Blog Award in the category of Best Thought Provoking Blog.
I will admit, it is cool to think that some of the finest minds in the industry, people that I look up to and try my best to learn from would think that Event Industry Thoughts would be worthy of being included with this amazing group of meeting and event industry talent. All of the nominees are simply the best of the best.
One look at the entire group and all of the categories and you have your reading schedule set for the day. In fact, if I were going to put up a "best of the web" post, these are the people that I would include, these are some of the people that have helped me expand my horizons.
I will say one thing about the selection committee, they have really made things hard for us (in a good way), I had a hard time choosing who I would pick in all of the categories (including my own).
A final note about who you will choose and what you learn from looking at the list of nominees, I am trying my best to not have this sound hokey......While it is an honor to be nominated, I will not ask for your vote, I would simply ask that you vote for who you think is the best in every category and that may or may not be Event Industry Thoughts......Don't get me wrong, it would make my month to win, but if there is someone in my category that is more deserving, then that is who you should vote for.
What I hope that you will do is take a few minutes out of your day and visit every blog on the list and read at least one post, what you may find is that you discover a new idea, a new way of thinking or may simply have a good laugh. If you do this one simple thing, then not only are all of the people who have been nominated winners, but you are as well.
