Toot Toot!!

That's me tooting my own horn.

I have been writing for the Kansas City Star's Mom2Mom blog for over a year now. I write for them once a week and every 2 months my column is in the Tuesday FYI section of the paper. (The featured writers are rotated in the paper version of the column.) I don't get paid for this column, it's a resume piece more than anything.

I am super excited to announce that Mom2Mom won
first place in American Association of Sunday and Feature Editors’ Excellence-in-Feature-Writing Contest. The blog placed first place in the social media enterprise category.

This is kinda a big deal in newspaper world and I am proud to be a part of the team that won this award.

Here's a link to today's announcement: Scroll down to the last division see the award. The awards are given in three divisions, determined by newspaper circulation size. Our division is the largest circulation size (more than 200,000), which means we compete against the big dogs, like the NY Times, Washington Post, L.A. Times, etc.
