In a turn of events even our mother could not have predicted, this blog has been named the “Best Blog” ever in the history of the Internet (we may have fudged that last part) in the PR Daily Digital PR & Social Media Awards.
These prestigious national awards, which we’re assuming are prestigious because we won something, are presented by Ragan Communications, a highly-respected communications and PR company. Hundreds of companies across the country vie for these awards, including public relations agencies, corporations and nonprofits, media relations and publicity agencies, PR consultants, governmental organizations and others. View all the winners, most important category first.
The judges for the PR Daily Digital PR & Social Media Awards are much-beloved (even moreso now) leaders in the social and public relations communities, including: Kara Swisher, co-host of the Wall Street Journal’s “All Things Digital”; Jesse Stanchak, social media editor at SmartBrief; Felix Salmon, blogging editor at Reuters; Christine Romans, host of CNN’s “Your Bottom Line”; Carlos Dominguez, Senior Vice President at Cisco; and Mark Ragan, CEO of Ragan Communications, among others.

Said Scott Roeben, the deeply modest creative force behind Caesars Entertainment’s awards-laden blog, “I’m honored the Pulse of Vegas blog has been named the best blog in, essentially, the known universe, and furthermore, blah, blah, blah, did you ever notice how people don’t bother to read quotes in blogs? This blog can pretty much say anything here, nobody’s going to read it. People skim. That, dear friends, is how you win a ‘Best Blog’ award. Hope people skim a lot!”
This blog would like to congratulate all the other worthy finalists in the Best Blog category, mainly because that makes us appear more gracious, so we’re presumably free to gloat, guilt-free, from here on out.
We wish we could’ve attended the PR Daily Digital PR & Social Media Awards luncheon at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, but we were very busy doing blog research related to “slushy drinks” and “parlaying a hard six.”
This just in: Also Hawaii and Alaska. The “contiguous United States” thing just made for a catchier headline.
