TanveerNaseer.com Earns Two More Awards – A Message of Appreciation to my Readers

It’s the awards season in most industries and so, it seems only fitting that I share some recent developments for my site, especially with those readers who have subscribed to my blog via the email subscription or blog RSS feed options.

As you may have noticed in the “Awards” section in the sidebar, my blog here at TanveerNaseer.com was recently selected as one of “The 25 Best Management and Leadership Blogs of 2011” by TheBestColleges.org, as well as being ranked as one of the “Top 100 Leadership and Influence Blogs” by the organizers of the “Leadership and Influence Summit”.

And as of last week, my site was selected by the team at “Leadership Digital” to be one of their “Featured” leadership blogs, placing my blog alongside those of leadership thinkers Marshall Goldsmith, Mike Myatt, Dan McCarthy, and Scott Eblin to name a few. For those who are not familiar with Leadership Digital, it’s a brand new aggregator site compiling the latest posts and ideas being shared by leadership thinkers and writers.

While I’m certainly grateful for these awards/recognition, the fact is that these accomplishments could not have happened without you, the readers of my blog. As I mentioned to a friend in a conversation recently, whenever I sit down to write for my blog, the first consideration I always have is how can I best serve my readers.

After all, there are so many incredible resources and talented bloggers sharing their insights and ideas that I want to make sure that the time you spend reading my pieces is not only well-spent, but that you gain something of benefit as well.

So while I may not be standing on stage accepting a trophy of some sort, I still want to thank all of my readers for continuing to push me to deliver content that is inspiring, motivating, and hopefully encouraging in getting you to re-examine the issues facing today’s leadership to benefit both your team and your ability to help guide them forward.

TanveerNaseer.com Awarded 2nd Place in 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards!

I am delighted to announce that following a second round of jury voting last month, my blog was awarded 2nd place in the “Business and Career” category for the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards. I can tell you that it’s quite the personal achievement to have a jury of your peers go through a list of hundreds of nominees and select your blog as one of the top business blogs in your country. I want to take this opportunity to thank both the organizers and the jury for this honour, as well as my readers who have been the driving force in pushing me to excel to such a degree.

On a side note, the beginning of the new year marks the release of the January Leadership Development Carnival over at Dan McCarthy’s blog “Great Leadership”. Among the many contributions to this month’s edition is my piece, “Are You Fitting Employee Personality Into Your Leadership Puzzle?“. I’d like to thank Dan for once again compiling a great resource of articles on leadership and management for everyone to enjoy.

Again my thanks to everyone involved with the Canadian Weblog Awards for this recognition.  I’m looking forward to building on this success in the months ahead.

TanveerNaseer.com Top 5 Finalist In 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards!

This past August, I shared the exciting news with my readers that my site was the recipient of three nominations for the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards.  For those who are not familiar with this competition, the Canadian Weblog Awards (CWA) is a juried competition that looks for the best Canadian bloggers in a diverse range of categories and styles.   Yesterday, I received news that my site has been selected as one of the top 5 finalists in the following two categories:

  • Business and Career
  • Best Designed

According to the CWA site, there were over 450 nominated sites for the various categories which were reviewed and scored by 49 jurors, leading to the top 5 finalists for each category.  These top 5 finalists will now go through a second jury round over the month of December, after which they will announce the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners on January 1st, 2011.

Considering the number of nominated sites, it’s truly an honour to be held up as one of the top 5 blogs representing the best from my country in these respective categories.  I’d like to extend my congratulations to the other finalists in this year’s Canadian Weblog Awards, along with my thanks to the jury for selecting my site as one of the top 5 finalists in not one, but two categories.

A Thank You Note for My Readers

Yesterday, I shared the wonderful news that my site is the recipient of 3 nominations for the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards. While I had expected a few congratulatory remarks, the actual response I received to this news was both astonishing and inspiring. Indeed, I’ve received so many warm wishes and congratulatory notes that I can’t help but feel both grateful and humbled to see so many as excited about these nominations as I am.

Of course, the reality is that this accomplishment couldn’t have happened without you, the readers of my blog. When I sit down to write about the ideas or insights I want to share here, there’s always that consideration in my mind of how this can benefit you. With so many wonderful resources and bloggers out there sharing great content and ideas, I want to make sure that readers are happy with their decision to spend some of their time here on my blog.

In this light, these nominations are as much your accomplishment as they are mine as I credit you, the readers of my blog, for pushing me to deliver content that inspires and motivates; that helps to address some problems you may be facing or simply getting you to consider a concept from another perspective. In many ways, writing a blog is much like the teamwork issues I write about in that for this effort to be a success, we must all work together to help each other become successful.

As such, I want to use this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for helping me as much as I hope I’m helping you. Thanks to the support and well-wishes you’ve sent me since I made this announcement about my site’s award nominations, I can honestly say that I feel as though I’ve already won.
