Last night Heather and I got to attend the Nashville Technology Council‘s “Feel The Beat” Awards. The red carpet gala event was held at the Schemerhorn Symphony Center, which is a gorgeous building in downtown Nashville.
I had the thrill of being nominated as Nashville’s Social Media / Blogger of the year. I shared the honor of the nomination with Kate O’Neill of [meta] marketer and Rex Hammock of Hammock Inc., both people I really like and admire.
When Rex’s name was called I was so happy for him. Many people don’t realize that Rex has been blogging about news and social media, community and technology since before we called it blogging. Congrats Rex!
Tod Fetherling, CEO of the tech council, did an incredible job putting together the first of many future Feel The Beat awards. The location, food, audio and video were all top notch. I should add that it was fun being seated at table 15 (the little guitar table) with some old friends and fellow nominees like: Marcus Whitney and Clint Smith, Alex Ezell and Sara McManigal.
I truly appreciate the recognition from being nominated. Thanks.
