    I was driving to work this morning and the streets in Chicago are slicker than snot on a doorknob (as my mom says), then it began to snow as I walked back to the office from a meeting, and I was beginning to get cold and grouchy. BUT THIS MADE MY DAY!!!! Thank you!!

  • http://www.twistimage.com/blog Mitch Joel – Twist Image

    This is very flattering – thank you. Only three Bloggers left to kill before next year… (ok, ok, I’m kidding!!).

    In all seriousness, I put a ton of energy and passion into my Blog (I really do love it) and it’s acknowledgements like this that really are the cherry on top of the sundae.

    Many thanks… and I too follow and read the others… all of the time.

  • http://www.edisonresearch.com Tom Webster

    At least you’ve only got three. I’ve got 9, but the first is local to me, so should be easy to stalk. Should be a while before I get to #4, so we’re good.

    Hi guys,

    Congrats to everyone (not just the ones listed here, but everyone who was nominated, and some who weren’t). Nice to see such a mix in the blogging approaches – looks like (finally) social media isn’t being talked about as “that cool thing”, but is being dissected, tore apart, and seeing just what it can offer, and some solid voices talking about it.

  • http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/ Michael A. Stelzner

    Mitch – Congrats!

  • http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/ Michael A. Stelzner

    Congrats on your efforts Danny!

    I had an early morning meeting and I was driving to work on slicker than snot on a doorknob roads and then I walked back from the meeting in the snow so I was cold and grouchy when I got to the office. But this made my day. THANK YOU!! Brian, Mitch, Jay, and Jason…I have you in my sights!

    In case anyone is wondering, on of the KEY things I look for in any blog is for a fresh perspective and unique voice along with a presentation of content which is memorable. That factored heavily in my voting. Congrats to all.

  • http://www.jaydolan.net/ Jay Dolan

    Wow. If you told me in 2009 when I came up with The Anti-Social Media that making fun of Mark Zuckerberg, social media marketers, and my friends who use Twitter in the bathroom would land me as a top social media blog, I would have died from disbelief.

    I’m really honored to be a part of this group. Let’s all kick some social media ass in 2011.

  • http://www.edisonresearch.com Tom Webster

    Rats. There goes the element of surprise.

  • http://www.edisonresearch.com Tom Webster

    Michael – thanks for providing this “venue” and this exceptional list (including the 23 nominees.) It’s a thrill to be on the same list as many of the voices and talents I respect and read daily. I’m grateful to you, and to the judges, for the recognition.

    Congrats, everyone!

  • Gregg Houlden

    Except for Danny who is one of the most topical chaps I follow, I don’t tend to think your panel has the right balance….no Kikolani? No J-P De Klerk? Your choices are rather staid! Sad and to be honest shows lack of innovation! OH OK Brian is a star but…….no Kristi? No Belgium’s greatest export JP? OK for the US crowd.. he’s the social media version of Poirot, without the dodgy moustache?

    Have to say I’m a little surprised that the content of these blogs is so text heavy, I would have expected top marketers in today’s ‘blogosphere’ would be using more video! I did see some video but it’s rather low quality, with seemingly little effort put into it As a video producer, I’m probably biased but knowing the power of video for SEO, engagement and more… I’d guess I expected something a bit more like mine:  http://www.digitalaccomplice.com/blog/

    Excellent list! I also agree that the lack of video is surprising. As millions of unique users are logging onto YouTube to view videos each day, it would seem that video marketing is one of the most effective ways to communicate one’s message with a “Wow!” We create 2D and 3D videos for clients.

    Social
    media has lots of benefits, making it a “must” in any marketing strategy
    (in our humble opinion), but especially in a down economy when you’re
    stretching and being more creative with your marketing dollars. Most
    social media sites are free, requiring some investment of your time
    but very little of your money.  Plus, these sites are interactive;
    making it a more unique and personal way to target you’re demographic outside
    of traditional marketing techniques and search engine listings.

    I completely agree with this. If people are involved with you on an emotional level, they will be much more likely to refer friends and family to your business, as well as talk positively about your brand.

    respond emotionally and it is important that you show them that you are human
    also. As a business owner, of course you want to educate other people online
    about your offerings.

    have a hard time proving it.
