I just won a state award by the Texas Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus for my social media work for Visit El Paso! Hearing the Sales Director’s make that announcement during today’s employee meeting today really made my day!
I recently lost a local popularity contest – the What’s Up Best of the Best – in the ‘Best Social Media Publisher’ category. I had been nominated in previous years and really never paid much attention but this year was different because I am now working in social media and I suppose it would have been nice to win.
Not many folks will understand the importance of this award – but I’m pretty proud of myself! I suppose a state award is better than a local award, right?
This win only motivates me to continue to strive to be better for my organization; it’s very clear that my work alone has truly spoken for itself. I’m also getting ready to attend the Social Media Tourism Symposium in Nashville, TN during November – excited to gain some more knowledge from peers in my industry!
If any of my wonderful readers voted for me this year at Best of the Best, thank you – you’re truly wonderful folks! So what’s next? I’m going to be attending Toastmasters meetings – I’d like to speak at a conference and represent my company sometime!
