2005 Business Blogging Award Best Small Business

I know it’s awfully uncool to be the first to notice, but……………..

After a gaggle of recounts and a spell of bone-idleness from the award hosts, you’ll be over the moon to know that The Tinbasher has won best small business blog at the 2005 Business Blogging Awards.

Thank you to everyone who took the time out to vote and If you want, by means of a celebration, I’ll crack open the Gmail accounts. I think I’ve got about nine thousand and sixty, so it’s strictly first come, first served.

Just in case you were wondering, I’ve managed to come away with:

* RocketOne plan from HostRocket.com.
* A copy of Good to Great, sponsored by GoodBasic.com.
* A copy ofBuzz Marketing with Blogs(when it’s published on March 15) courtesy of the author, Susannah Gardner. She’ll also throw in two hours of consultation on an existing blog: analysis and recommendations on design, layout, functionality, tools, advertising, etc.
* From 800-CEO-READ, You Need to Be A Little Crazy by Barry Moltz.

Just imagine how far The Tinbasher could really go once I get some proper advice as to how to do it ;-)
