I Won the Silver Personal Brand Award for 2008

By Daniel Scocco

personal brand awardsI am a pretty down to earth guy, and really think that I still have a long way to go before I can consider myself to be “someone” in the online sphere. That being said, it is always nice to celebrate the small achievements along the way.

Last week Dan Schawbel, the founder of the Personal Brand Awards, emailed me informing that I had won the Silver Award this year (there is a gold, silver and bronze).

Here is what he wrote about it:

Why he won: Daniel is certainly a fan favorite when it comes to blogging. Every day, Daniel gives precious blogging tips and strategies for beginners up to advanced bloggers. He holds one of the top spots in Technorati, yet he is a solo-blogger, which is remarkable. Daniel is certainly a go-to-guy for blogging, people trust him and he constantly rewards his community. For all this, we would like to recognize him with a silver personal brand award.

I am flattered!

You can also send your application for the 2009 edition if you think you got a strong personal brand, just visit the Awards website.

By the way I did not send my own application, looks like Andy Beal recommended me, so a big thank you for him too!

    Congrats Daniel ! And well deserved. You may underestimate yourself but you’ve already come a long way and certainly a reputed name in the online sphere.

    Congrats Daneil. This is a really big achivement. Infact it is sth to celebrate for us readers too.

    I wonder why u dnt launch a tutoring programme like Yaro Starak, with so many people trusting you and also because u have such good reputation. I feel that u are definitely losing some easy money. though this opinion is completely personal and u may have a different view. Anyway congrats again.
