has been nominated for several awards.

  • Best Blog Ever – which we have no business being in
  • Best Geek Blog
  • Best Podcast
  • Best Business Blog – this is our spot if anything…

    I just feel really honored even to be nominated. I have truly been amazed at the success of this blog. I never considered myself a blogger and at first and even until a few weeks ago I took it as a insult when people would introduce me as a “blogger”. I know that probably sounds bad.. i mean it sounds bad to me now. But I have kind of embraced it a bit now.

    When I was at the techcrunch40 conference last week as part of the “press core” I was introduced by one of the staff as “the best financial blogger in the world”. I was like “well kind of not really like in a not true kind of way” everyone around me laughed and they were like why do you not like being called a blogger. My response was just like “I think I am almost a insult to bloggers and news sites. I rarely use proper English. I throw in a lot of h4x0rific stuff and my grammar is horrid”.

    But they responded with “But unlike 99.9% of blogs about making money online and marketing you have actually done what you have talked about and you are here and at all the conferences just a regular guy like all of your readers”

    They also talked about how I basically have been the only blogger (if you want to use that word) who launched an advertising network and sold it 4 months later and chronicled every step of the way on the blog and on the radio show disclosing pretty much every marketing tactic and method for the success.

    Well anyway… I am just a regular guy trying to make a living online. I think many times people put me on this pedestal and are like “what if you were not shoemoney and had to start over tomorrow what would you do?” I mean guess what…. I am just a regular guy and I hit hot and cold streaks like anyone else. Its all relative.

    If you want to follow a professional blogger I think problogger is the guy. That guy truly is THE PROBLOGGER and he is a really good person also.

    So got a little off topic but if you like and you think its worthy vote for it.

    k thx.

    1. No doubt, you are the best. My vote is in.,Such a big network gets 500K visits per month. Your site according to compete gets 200K month. compare to last year , it is freat growth πŸ™‚

    2. I think what makes your blog great is the casualness. Some pro’s are… pretentious or over arrogant or they try and act casual when really they are assholes. Where as you are just you and that’s it and you blog what you think without worrying about keyword dropping and promoting your shit too much and all that.

      This is basically the only blog I read on a regular basis. I read the blog now n then because I can’t wait for the release of that and I take a glance at John Chow’s now n then but to be honest I think he’s sold out. He’s compromised user experience for money and I think that’s where the line should be drawn with blogs. The in-link ads are annoying and even though he thinks it’s not packed with ads… it is! it may as well be 1 big landing page.

      Whereas you… make as much as him and you keep your posts clean of ads and just use a seperate sidebar for ads / affiliates and a nice rotating spot at the top. That doesn’t annoy me in the slightest and I think it’s the best for a blog.

      Keep doing what your doing, great blog!

    3. You have everything to be proud off, if i was in your shoes, i would have made this post as well.


    4. Great news Shoe. You do deserve being nominated for those, this is definitely one of the top blogs out there.

    5. cool site I just signed up, but sorry shoe I voted problogger….

      Most the categories are ok, but WTF is up with Best Blog Design? I mean at best the ones on the first page are mediocre. The number 1 best blog design is fugly, where is Vikiwerks? or Veerle’s heck I could name 50 blogs that look better then that crap….

    6. Just signed up and voted for a couple blogs on there, but omg what is up with the Best Blog Design category? It almost looks like a boring template order page

    7. I think you deserve an award. Not because you write the best, even though it isn’t bad, but because you help others with your blog. You share information, ideas, and tips that help other bloggers and Web types to make more money.

    8. You say you don’t consider yourself a great blogger, but I don’t think that’s what it’s all about. Being a good writer can only get you so far. Having good ideas and putting them down into something you can share with others is what makes a good blog to read. This is definitely accomplished often on here so I would guess that would be why you were nominated.

    9. I admire you for a couple reasons. The first is how you react to the “haters”. I have been feeling some heat lately myself, and I can take faith in the fact you have it a lot worse but just brush it off your shoulders.

      The second is all the pics with all the sexy internet models, I just love it, reminds me of me. πŸ˜‰

    10. Congratz with the nomination, you’ve got my vote!
      And it’s good to know that you also hit hot and cold πŸ™‚
      It keeps us future probloggers motivated to know that we should not give up that easy if the real plobloggers also have some cold streaks every now end then.

    11. I think the best podcast goes to rocketboom,
      best blog ever is a hard one though i think cuteoverload is a good pick:D
      best business blog is not engadget I think shoemoney is a good pick for that category.

    12. I usually don’t go through the awful process of creating an account, but I did now, cause it’s worth it. Voted ! πŸ™‚

    13. Well, I wish you good luck and I hope you win. Personally I read your blog almost daily just for the information on it, I consider it good.

    14. Well done. I think your blog is great – although I’m still not sure whether I believe you really had that weight loss operation!

      I’m also in agreement on Problogger. I didn’t even know what a blog was until I saw his, and his advice has been a massive help.

    15. I voted for you for best blog ever, only one I actually type in every day and not just glance at it in my bloglines.

    16. Congrats man. Your style of writing is far better to read than some stupid Weblogs Inc. news site that claims to be a “blog”.

    17. I voted for your blog too. The bathroom/office jokes keep the site from getting to vain. Thanks again. If you are at Pubcon, Diet Pepsi is on me.

    18. Congrats πŸ™‚

      I asked them to exclude me from all the awards to give you a better chance πŸ˜‰

    19. I voted for your blog.
      I know there are plenty of blogs out there that might be better or more informative than yours, but your blog was the first one that motivated to get more focused and go after my dreams. Not only do you cover all the important events and talk about all the current happenings in the industry, you keep it real with your funny and personal articles.
      I hope your blog keeps on growing.

    20. Your style of writing is very unique. To be able to capture and audience from just telling us what you do everyday shows signs of a true blogger. Other blogs that just focus on one thing is good but sometimes lacks the excitement or drama. You being unpredictable daily is what draws my attention.

    21. you know by getting even nominated for anything on that site you are pretty much dealing with payperpost… reason being do a whois of the domain and you shall see what i mean… so why even subject yourself to that???
      look through the list of “popular sites” on there and you shall see most of them are under the umbrella of their company / subsidiaries…

    22. Agreed – This may be a business blog… but there’s always room for toilet humour!! PS.. that “blogrush” widget is really hurting your site’s download time show.. :S

    23. […] seems Shoemoney is taking to the whole blogger caper, and I for one am glad, I like his honesty and fresh style. Importantly, he […]

    24. You guys are dominating the blogging industry. I really hope you get the award. The posts here are both entertaining and informative. Good luck!

    25. You actually deserve it Jeremy πŸ™‚

      I have recently come across your blog, and i am actually enjoying reading your posts a lot, very informative and give us great tips :).

      Thanks and keep up the great work.

    27. You are simply the best. Keep up the good work! πŸ™‚
