One of the good things about having a blog is that you can write about whatever you want. One of the weird things about having a blog is balancing creating content that others find useful and being self-promotional by either linking to your own posts or talking about yourself.
So what happens when something cool happens to you that you're proud of, but you don't want to seem overly self-promotional? You have the choice of either not blogging about it at all, or writing about it at the risk of sounding arrogant. I recently won an award and was going to go with "just not mentioning it"....but where's the fun in that?
So forgive me while I wax self-promotional and mention that I recently was named Publishing Trendsetter of the Year by the Angerosa Research Foundation.
