I didn’t win the ComputerWorld Canada Blogging Idol competition, but I did enjoy the experience, and I got the chance to meet some really great people.
Congratulations to the winner Chris Lau, not only did he write a lot of great posts, but took the time to provide some thoughtful comments on my posts as well.
Check out my blog posts in the competition, specifically the one “Why Blog?” – this is a lesson in reading the fine print, I posted it on the last day, but the competition closed at midnight at the beginning of that day, so was not judged. Oh well, there is always next year.
Although it took a fair bit of energy, and I entered the contest late, it was certainly worth the effort. There was a fair bit of discussion at the awards party about the effectiveness of blogging as a personal branding tool. Shane Schick
