That's right: I've been inducted into the SLOB Hall of Fame, the inspired creation of John Koetsier at Bizhack ("Hacking the Tech of Biz and the Biz of Tech"). Each week John selects nine blogs that "provide informed, accurate, and opinionated commentary on issues we care about." This week Away with Words is one of the nine.
My SLOB-mates include the excellent TED Blog, the brilliant Carpe Factum (don't miss the hilarious ransom rant against "motivational" crapola), and a--hallelujah!--well-written blog about tech stuff, Chip's Quips. Last week's honorees included Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin, and one of my personal favorites, Mike Wagner at Own Your Brand.
Must rush off now to prepare for the press conference, the motorcade, and the official coronation. But don't fret--I won't forget my humble beginnings and my deep debt of gratitude to all of you (hello? hello?) who give me the strength to carry on. You may stop applauding and sit down now. Go forth and do something SLOB-bish.
