Shoemoney.com has been nominated for several awards.
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 shoemoney.com and you think its worthy vote for it.
