Texas Social Media Awards
Jan 21 2009
Oddly enough, I was nominated for the Texas Social Media Awards. There were 125 nominees and I happen to know at least one of the people who nominated me and that was Thom Singer, our local networking guru. Thanks Thom!
There are some heavy weights in social media on the list and I’m honored to be among them! The list was created by people who happened to know about the awards, so I think they are missing some key social media people in Texas. However, they seem to have most of the relevant Austin folks on there with a few notable exceptions.
The judges will be hard at work selecting the top 25, and they will be announced on February 13. The winner will be announced at a party on March 15, 2009, the day before my Building A Web Business After Hours panel happens at South By Southwest Interactive (SXSWi)!
The judges will take into consideration comments left on each person’s entry and mine is listed under my name Aruni Gunasegaram. So leave a comment there if you are so inclined and maybe I’ll have a better chance of making the top 25 than I did at winning that free trip to Tobago.
I’ll be on a blogging haitus for the next several days for a much needed life break. I’ll be back sometime mid to late next week.Author: Aruni | Filed under: social media | Tags: austin, statesman, texas social media awards | Comments Off
