Newest Mug Club Winner: Liz Strauss

Mug_club_hrCongratulations 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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").
  3. 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!

    All hail Liz! I’m with you on this one, Tom. And thanks for my byline. Do I get a royalty check?

    Ummm…well, Christine – there’s good news and there’s bad news… The bad news is I already spent your royalty check. The good news is that I spent it on tickets for your concert in Des Moines this September! Mike Sansone and I are looking forward to meeting you and seeing you perform 🙂 Cheers!

    Welcome to the club Liz! You are definitely a “Half-fuller” – maybe closer to three-quarters, actually. Thanks for setting the bar so high for all of us optimists. And Tom, see you on the History Channel!

    Hi Guys,
    I wrote a comment here yesterday. I must have been to flustered to submit it correctly, because I see today that it’s not here.
    I am still so still blushed and flushing. There are people who would pay to see this. Tom, you should be selling tickets to this. I blush about once a millenum and you got me good!

    Man, I wish I had a picture! Good for you, Liz. It’s well-deserved!
