Um. Wow.

I found out that I’m nominated on Profectio’s list of Canada’s Most Influential Woman In Social Media.

Quite frankly, I’d assume my mom nominated me – but given that this April she asked me (without a hint of irony) “Do you know you can actually buy things on the internet?”, I am making an educated assumption that she still has no idea what I do. (Love you, Mom!)

I’m very flattered and think it’s supremely sweet that I made this list. Profectio, rest assured that I will be laminating and framing the post and, quite possibly, taking it to bed with me.

Other nominees include Kate Trgovac (my bet), Miss604/Rebecca Bollwitt, Amber Mac and other highly deserving women, so I’m not being self-effacing when I say my odds of winning are as likely as that of Rob Schneider for an Oscar.

Truly, it is an honor just to be nominated.

    Oh you’ve influenced ME on more than one occasion, I know that! 😉

    I think it’s great that you’re nominated, and definitely most deserving.

    I hate being nominated along with other great people. It’s easier to want to win when you actually don’t like the people who are also nominated. But in this case, I can totally relate (as I’m nominated for Canadian Blog Awards and Best of 604 – and I LOVE my fellow nominees!)

    You are an inspiration and a wonderful social media guru 🙂 You’ve influenced ME as well on more than one occasion (as aptly said by Rebecca)

    Of course you’re nominated! And if I have anything to do with it, you’re going to win too.

    You’re a writer of great skill with a singular talent for exposition. When you explain social media, it makes sense.

    I think the more immersed you become in the social media world, the less you remember that you’re among the hyper-literate. People aren’t dumb just because they don’t (or don’t ‘get’) Twitter. And you never seem to forget that. So you’ve got my vote.

    Thank you so much, Rebecca, Raul and Ruth (hmmm, theme with the Rs here…?) I really appreciate your lovely words. Hmmm, will have to frame these comments and cuddle them too.

    Voted for you because you’re lovely and you make me blush. The rest of the nominees are lovely too – just haven’t made me blush yet.

  • […] an honor to be among the likes of Kate, Monica, and Amber – all of whom I’ve had the pleasure to meet and partake in geeky activities […]

    Thanks, Jer! Making cute guys blush is a fun gift 🙂
