And The Winner of the 2010 Top 50 MLM Blogs Contest Is….

Vote For Me!And The Winner of the 2010 Top 50 MLM Blogs Contest Is….

You did it!

You are amazing!

I can not believe the incredibly generous outpouring of love you have shared!

Tonight, on thatMLMbeat.tv, they announced the Top 50 MLM Blogs for 2010!

Now fortunately for me, they allowed all of us in MLM & NWM supporting industries to participate….

And much to what I’m certain is the bemusement of Ty Tribble who lead the race from day one and is well known and respected in the community as the founding father of network marketing blogs…

You rocked the house and helped me steal the show!

This calls for a celebration! Woot!

*pops a cork of bubbly for all of her absolutely amazing friends*

Have I told you lately how much you rock?!?!

Thank you for making the #1 spot in the Top 50 MLM blogs possible! Woot!

My love, appreciation and gratitude cup runneth over!

Thank you, thank you, thank you… for your generous support!

With Love,
Kimberly

PS: My friend and fellow WordPress and Blogging fiend, Nile Flores, made a mad dash to get me interviewed and after you comment, you can check that out on her site:

PSS: Seriously, Ty Tribble’s blog rocks and if you’re involved in the industry and haven’t had a chance to meet him you’re really missing out. He holds the bar high and sets a stellar example of “how its done right”. He very rightly remains the top NWM/MLM focused blog in the industry for good reason!

Thanks bunches Cathie! Man that was quite the wait after they moved the announcement date three times!! I didn’t think we were ever going to find out! (In fact we still don’t have a printed list yet which is really kinda annoying cuz we all want to be able to show it off and network!). Appreciate your support so much sweetie!

Congratulations Kim on such a well deserved win! :)

I’ve been wondering over the past few days when we would hear the results of the competition.

Keep rocking! (which of course, you will!)

Kim,

I am very happy for you and it is true testimony from your followers of what a great leader you have become. You always offer great insight, tips and etc… without being a sheep and telling people what they want to hear. Maybe that is why the two of us get along so well.

I admire you and look forward to seeing more great things come your way!

Congrats!!!

Your Friend,
Dave and (Dawn)

Dave ya know I absolutely adore your straight shooting, no BS approach. The industry needs more chlorine for the excuse-making pool and we’re out to deliver! I saw your message to get in touch about a webinar – lets do it! (Although George has already got me promised for one too, I think everyone wants to know where in the world I came from! LOL). Thank you so much for all your support. You know as well as I do what it means when so many are being disgruntled at the unpleasantries of us removing their blinders. I couldn’t ask for better friends out here.

Scott, you rock! Thank you so much for your support, I really appreciate it!

PS: Two things… first, you must be subscribed to this thread with a email address that has an auto-response set up because I get an identical email from your account every time someone posts on it… and two… if you ever have trouble with your feed or other odd link issues, its because you have something wild going on, a link that looks like really shouldnt work. I have no clue how you accomplished that but you did!

Ok..now I know!!!!! I was wondering what happened with all of the hoopla..an low and behold my very own buddy kicks some blogg’n bootie! You deserve it…Who else works their butt off delivering constant info and help to all us cry-babies? I know how busy you are and yet you always respond to every silly question I may have, not to mention the tip on ‘what the hell’s wrong with your tweememe’…thank you for fixing that in seconds flat, but mostly, thank you for being the kind a person that I can call a friend.

Congrats dear Kimmy!

It’s great to have another smart, sassy, authentic gal that isn’t pretending that life is all peaches and roses (not that I’d complain if some handsome stud bought me some but ya know what they say about ice cubes in hades right? LOL) I’m glad to help and I really appreciate you helping out with likes and comments on my page to give me some social proof, those things go a long way and I appreciate them. You rock Kim!

PS: I got your FB message this morning, hang tight on that because I’m being pulled by several to do webinars talking about what I did, most is foundation work but I also applied some less common tactics to pull numbers. Once we hear more on those, if you still have questions we’ll work from there. I’m always happy to answer :)
