Congratulations to Liz Strauss of Successful Blog, the newest member of the ever-growing QAQnA Mug Club! Liz has been a true friend to our little homestead in the blogosphere. She bestowed on us her S.O.B. designation, frequently stops by for a visit and has linked other bloggers our way. As a Mug Club member, she has a prestigious gold coffee mug on it’s way to the Windy City and the coveted Mug Club badge to post on her blog.
Three things that make Liz a winner:
- Liz spreads the conversation like no one else. Another blogger once told me "someday when the history of blogging is written and how it changed the world, Liz is going to be mentioned as one of the key people who made it happen." I concur and will be willing to say so in a future History Channel documentary.
- Liz uses blogging creatively. Her weekly SOB awards are a stroke of genius, encouraging bloglings (got that term from Christine Kane while we were visiting Liz’s blog) and spreading good cheer. In addition, her Tuesday night open mic took blogging into a whole new blogging dimension ("not of sight and sound but that of the imagination – that’s the sign-post up ahead").
- She has unquenchable optimism. Liz is one of those people I want to be around, just to bask in light and cheer that radiates from her and her blog.
You will find measurable value in meeting Liz and subscribing to her blog. You’ll find encouragement, creativity and an introduction to a host of great people. (And if you stop by on a Tuesday night you’ll have a few laughs, too!)
Congratulations, Liz! You’re a winner!
