Edmonton is awesome. I talk to so many PR and social media ‘gurus’ who live in major cities across North America, and they often tell me how lucky I am to live in Edmonton – a city that thrives online.

We have an exceptional blogging community – many Edmonton and area bloggers are ranked some of the top in Canada. We have a group of Tweeps dubbed the ‘Twitterati’ due to their elite online profile. We have Tweetups, Twitter parties, #MeetTheMedia events, social media conferences, and countless people who put Edmonton on the map by celebrating its awesomeness online.

And we now have another great way to celebrate those people who contribute to Edmonton through the interactive realm. The #Yeggies seemed to come out of nowhere suddenly, but in a few short weeks have grown to become a must-attend event (online and in person).

I love Edmonton, and I love social media. I guess having a love for both made me a great candidate to be part of the growing #Yeggie community, and I’m uber proud to be honoured as a nominee and finalist for the ‘Best in Business’ #Yeggie award. Seriously – it’s pretty cool to be part of something wonderful in its first year.

So a huge thanks for the nomination, a massive shout out to all the people putting this shin dig on (it’s a load of work, and they should be applauded for their contributions), and a mega high five to the amazing nominees in all categories.

See you on May 4th fellow #yeggies!
