A Little Bit Of Kudos

thank_you.pngBear with me as I write one of my less-favorite posts, which shares some kudos I’ve received in the last few months. It’s not that I don’t like kudos (I love it!) but I feel a little weird putting it here.

If I don’t put it, however, I have friends and partners who get after me. And I guess it’s good form to show that YOU need to figure out how to brag about yourself! I guess I should go back and reread Brag!

Anyway, here are some recent recognitions that I’ve become aware of:

I’m on LinkedIn — Now What??? has been chosen as a Top 10 Career Books by Joyce Lain Kennedy – she sent me the press release, you can see it in this newspaper article.

I’m on LinkedIn — Now What??? is my publisher‘s fastest selling title, and we’re probably going to be their top selling book (at least, that’s what I’m working towards :))

The JibberJobber blog has been nominated as a top recruiter blog in two different categories (Best Job Hunting Blog, Best Recruiting Blogosphere Personality). Pretty funny since I don’t consider this a recruiter blog (that is, I don’t intend to teach recruiters anything). These winners won by virtue of votes, which I didn’t post about here during the voting season (I’d be a bad politician :p): Six Degrees From Dave, Recruiting Animal, Hiring Revolution, I, Donato , Wired & Hired, WirelessJobs.com, CyberSleuthing, Xtra Cheezhead, Gautam Ghosh

This blog is listed as a top career blog (#23) by Risesmart in their Career100 list. Yes, I do consider this a career blog 😉 I’m not going to list all the other career blogs, but here are the first 22: Brazen Careerist, tompeters!, One Louder, Business Pundit, Chief Happiness Officer, Career and Job Hunting Blog, Escape from Cubicle Nation, BostonWorks Job Blog, Cheezhead, Work in Progress, Marketing Headhunter.com, David Maister, Bob Sutton Work Matters, …from the trenches, Slacker Manager, Gautam Ghosh on Management, How To Find The Perfect Job, About.com: Job Searching, Cultivate GREATNESS, George’s Employment Blawg, Deb’s Career Corner, Void for Vagueness

The JibberJobber blog is listed as a top 25 HR blog by HR World. Pretty funny since I don’t consider this an HR blog (that is, I don’t intend to teach HR anything). Here are the other top 25 HR blogs (in order – want to see the best HR blog? It’s in bold!): Career Hub, Cheezhead, SixDegrees from Dave, Gautam Ghosh, Insourced’s Employment and Jobs Blog, Evil HR Lady, good to know, GoodRecruits, HR Tests, HR Thoughts, Beyond HR, Dr. John Sullivan & Associates, HR and Strategies, HR Daily Advisor, HRMetrics.org, HR Web Café, Breaking Human Resource News, CharlotteRecruiting, Chief Happiness Officer, Generations@Work, Human Resources 101, Employment Law Blog, Inside Human Resources Blog, The Human Capitalist.

I was quoted in Money magazine in the January edition. I saw this first on Money/CNN and then got an e-mail from Deb Dib saying her husband saw it in print – yeah!

I recorded a show for NPR in Connecticut, and will be on NPR live in San Fransisco in February. More details when I have them!

(added at 4:30pm MST) Doh!  I knew I was forgetting something!   I’m thrilled that Alison Doyle, Job Search expert at About.com, included JibberJobber.com as one of her favorite job search sites for 2007.  It’s quite an honor to have her recognize JibberJobber, and even put it in with the other amazing favorites!

Thanks to everyone who has helped make these things possible, especially YOU! YOU have helped make this a top blog because of your comments, and the great discussion we have here!
