We've Been Awarded The "Featured Business Resource" Award

Derek's Home and Business Blog has been awarded the ChooseWhat Featured Business Resource Award
I'm excited to announce that Derek's Home and Business Blog has been awarded the "Featured Business Resource" Award by ChooseWhat. This award not only distinguishes my blog as a "Featured Business Resource", but also distinguishes it as a go-to source for information regarding entrepreneurship and business-related topics.

ChooseWhat are a business located in Austin, TX that provides comparisons and reviews of services that help small companies save money and operate more efficiently. The Featured Business Resource Award is a new initiative by ChooseWhat that recognises and honours the most exceptional business resources. Out of the hundreds of blogs that were selected by ChooseWhat, only a small group were presented with this award.

I am so delighted and honoured that my blog has been recognised and to have received this award. What started out as a hobby is now so much more, thanks to the support of my blog followers, visitors and more recently, my guest authors. Having this wonderful support motivates me in creating and publishing more of the blog posts and articles that my readers have come to enjoy.

Providing tips and marketing information that helps small business owners is something that I really enjoy doing and I'm so happy that my blog has officially now become a recognised resource for business-related topics. Along with the dedicated support of my readers, this award is most appreciated and it's such an honour to have received it.

Thank you Sean at ChooseWhat for awarding my blog the Featured Business Resource Award and the badge you have presented me with will now take pride on the blog's sidebar for all to see.

  13. Okay, one more attempt with hopes that it publishes properly this time. I'm not going to try and remember my original comment because it was several days ago that I wrote it. I'll just say that this news made me very happy for you. You've worked so hard and helped so many people with your blog, your blogging group(s) and admin help (at Authentic Blogger helping me out!) and ready advice when any of us get tripped up with tech-ish issues. All of this and more makes you deserving of this recognition and I daresay it will be the first of many such accolades. Congratulations, my friend! :)

    1. Thank you so much Dawn for the wonderful comment and it's a real pleasure and an honour to co-admin at Authentic Blogger.

      I'm not entirely sure as to why the comment you did on Thursday didn't come through. I've heard that some visitors are still experiencing problems when commenting on blogs hosted on Blogger. I don't know if you have noticed, but I have a message in the commenting section on my blog explaining this problem and what to do if they do experience it. I did think it was very unusual for you not to comment but I decided not to say anything :)

      Thanks again Dawn for the wonderful comment and thank you for taking the time to re-post it, it’s very much appreciated my friend :)
