Thank You Ben


For a second year, Ben Marin of the Certified Association Executive Blog handed out what I will call the “Bloggies” for the best association blogs for the year.

Ben was very kind to pick the Membership Marketing Blog as the “best new blog about associations”. He wrote, “Tony Rossell at Membership Marketing Blog is holding both bloggers and the industry accountable. This year he went toe-to-toe with the anti-marketing meme at Acronym and The Decision to Join. He cites MGI client statistics and both secondary and primary research in his posts. For these reasons, he takes home the top spot for best new blog about associations.”

The other well deserved awards include the following.
For the second consecutive year, the “best association blogger of 2007” award went to Jamie Notter, the author of GetMeJamieNotter.com.

The “best blog about associations in 2007” was awarded to Acronym, ASAE & the Center's official blog.

The “best new association blogger” goes to Maddie Grant, blogger at Diary of a Reluctant Blogger.

I sent a note to thank Ben for his dedication to association blogs. Conversations with Ben were actually part of the inspiration behind launching the Membership Marketing Blog. Thanks Ben!

You deserve it Tony. Nice job.

Ben -- That is actually a pretty good pun. I laughed. Yes, I guess that it does make you a "Blogfather". Tony
