I want to thank Derek for this opportunity to reach out to his readers – many of them bloggers – and invite them to make sure the most deserving bloggers are considered for a World Media Award.
When I think of my favorite bloggers, Derek always comes to mind. He writes in such an honest, straight-forward and inviting way – as though he was talking to his friends. And that is probably why he is such a popular blogger.
Tonight I am nominating DerekSemmler.com for Best Blog About Stuff and hope the judges are as big a fan of his writing as I am. Besides many famous judges and dozens of categories, Murray Newlands has the backing of the eBay partner network as lead sponsor.
Additional sponsors Viglink, Trancos, GrowMap and Pace Lattin and Media Sponsors MyBlogGuest, FeedBurner alternative FeedBlitz, The Affiliate Marketing Awards, Read Write Web, Adrants, Bloggeries, Media Vision, and Guest Blogging Network Web Traffic Control will ensure plenty of visibility across social media and hundreds of blog posts.
