Earlier this week my son learned to ride a bike without training wheels. Father’s day even, which was so cool. There’s nothing like that feeling of watching his world suddenly expand and realizing that his next big milestone in which that’ll happen is when he learns to drive a car. It’s fantastic!
In the last few weeks I’ve had a similar feeling several times when watching b5media evolve. In case you didn’t catch it on our team blog, we’ve hired a bunch of new people recently. Marketing manager, director of tech, project manager, admin assistant, sales guy in NYC, VP finance, director of branded (ie: non blog) content and a training manager. A lot of hires in the last 2-3 months.
Watching these folk find their footing and take on projects (new media kits, new systems for tracking bloggers, new ways of running and selling ads, new partnerships, improving projects, reviving dead projects, etc, et, etc) and watching our “older” team get excited too has been fantastic to watch. There are dozens of examples where I’ve been floored by the entire company’s energy, creativity and Get It Donery. I’m so proud of the entire team.
But it’s not just the team I’m proud of. Our bloggers and channel editors have been in a similar spirit recently, covering great events like Cannes, the MMVAs, Fashion Week, and, today, doing a 24-hour blog marathon where they post every hour. Let me repeat, every hour. Crazy, and all for charity!
Both our Business Channels and Entertainment Channels are participiating, and the idea was generated entirely by our bloggers and CEs (though, obviously, the internal team did everything we could to support it!).
And here are the Business Blogs:
Business and Blogging (www.businessandblogging.com) Accounting Solver (www.accountingsolver.com) taxgirl (www.taxgirl.com) Doing Biz Abroad (www.doingbizabroad.com) Home Biz Notes (www.homebiznotes.com) Everyday Networker (www.everydaynetworker.com) One Vote Matters (www.onevotematters.com) Interview Chatter (www.interviewchatter.com) Biz Chicks Rule (www.bizchicksrule.com) Buzz Networker (www.buzznetworker.com) Digital Money World (www.digitalmoneyworld.com) Franchise Pick (www.franchisepick.com) Yielding Wealth (www.yieldingwealth.com) Small Business Boomers (www.smallbusinessboomers.com) My Organized Biz (www.myorganizedbiz.com) Viva El Negocio (www.vivaelnegocio.com)
So, again, I’m so proud of our bloggers, CEs, team and everything. It’s fantastic! Thank you all, and well done!
Tris asked what I listen to while I work. I don’t use Last.FM or any of the other music sharing sites, mostly cause I don’t see the personal benefit. But, either way, thought it might be fun to show what I listen to most (out of my collection of 3000 or so tracks).

Anytime an artist appears more than once, I probably really like them. And yeah, ignore typos and such, was typing it into skype and I’m too lazy to fix it ;-)
Feel free to include yours, especially any you’re embarrassed about!
