For journalists, it's the Pulitzer. For scientists, the Nobel. For actors, an Oscar. For me and the other contributors to the Cvent Meetings & Events blog, it's the 2009 EventProfs Blog Award!
Okay, so maybe it's not exactly on par with those other recognitions, but it really does mean a lot to me and all the other writers to have won Best Education Blog. Really, it was great to just be nominated among the other talented bloggers!
Congratulations to all the other nominees, and of course, a big thanks to all those who voted and to our readers! We've spent the past year working hard to get the blog started and keep it up-to-date, reliable and full of information that event professionals find useful. To feel as if we have been—and will continue to be—successful at that is definitely the most rewarding part of it all.
