Small Business Trends is Finalist for Codie Award

Codie Finalist 2007 Small Business Trends is a Finalist in the 2007 Codie Awards. I am humbled — and quaking in my boots.

Finalists in the Codie Awards were selected from more than 1,200 nominations, with nominations reviewed by 219 screening judges.

So why am I quaking in my boots? Because I saw the competition we are up against for the final awards: Herb Greenberg, the Dow Jones journalist and CNBC commentator, is there with his Market Watch blog. Jim Cramer, celebrity host of the investment show Mad Money, also on CNBC, is there with his Daily Booyahs blog.

The Codies go well beyond blogs, with many categories of software and information products and websites. Check out the full list of Codie 2007 finalists for some interesting reading.

  1. Those other writers have nothing on you.

    Good luck!

  2. Good luck Anita! But the category seems a little… well… off. Financial blog? But it’s great you made the list. I noticed that Microsoft was only nominated once for Encarta which seemed a little … well… suspect. With Small Business Server, Small Business Accounting and MS Office, you would think they would have been nominated a few more times.

    I digress!! I’m very pleased you were nominated and may the votes come your way and bring lots of attention to your website. YOU deserve it!!

    Congratulations, Anita.

    I prefer you deliver news and information, so you definitely get my vote.

    The other nominees should be quaking in their boots.

    “I prefer the way you deliver news and information…”

    Pardon the last post. It’s dinner time, and I’m rushing.


  5. Congratulations.

    Now do the cool thing and pull your nomination claiming you don’t want to be associated with those stuffy ‘old media’ types.

    Then again you should walk it, and that’s infinitely cooler.

    Now if only Martin Scorsese could just win an Oscar……

  6. Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement.

    Yes, David, the blog categories were pretty limited. But since this blog is about business, I figure that’s financial-related. In the end it’s about money.

    Well, Mr. Tinbasher (Paul) I wouldn’t exactly call wildman Jim Cramer stuffy. 😉 Ha ha ha. But anyway I’m not against traditional media in any way — I see blogs as shaping and changing media, making it more personal and giving it interest.


  7. Wow. . .way to go, Anita! Don’t worry about a thing-you’re top notch!

  8. This is well-deserved, Anita. I’m so proud to know you! Your blog (this one) is one of the very best on the net, and that’s just fact. I refer more people to you than to anyone else. I just know they’ll get good quality content here.
