The Power of Schmoozing


A real network evangelist and very close friend honored me with

The Power of Schmoozing award!
Here is what it’s all about:
Schmoozing as defined by Dictonary.com is the ability to “converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection”. When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much. Mark and his friend Danielle wanted to recognize those bloggers who exhibit strong schmoozing skills. In order to do so they created the new Power of Schmooze award! They suggested to reward five bloggers friends who also are masters of the schmooze. Here is mine:

This was in fact a lottery – ’cause I at once found at least more than 35 candidates– and, if I have understood the rules, can not mention Renny and his 5 choices – then I asked my grandson to help me – 35 names in the bowl - and this is the result:
Mar
Sailing - Cybercruiser - TdF - Chile - Barcelona - hugs

Claudie

Mon copine de Touluse - a veritable cybercruisere . It was fun that the young man from Columbia won today

Ginnie
My "heart" to you. The woman who lives on both sides of the pond. Fascinating

Gattina
Ingrid, you have brought me into a fascinating blogger world.

Jen
One of my favourites. Need I say more?

PS. I’ve checked it out afterwards --- yeah those 5 have all have met another blogger. Am I right? I do think so - check their blog stories.

PS2. Do not shoot me – your name was in the bowl, but this time – Sebastian did not pick up yours. Hugs to you all;))

Congratulations Tor. I was nominated for that award, too. Schmoozing, eh? Different, isn't it?

Congratulations, Tor and thanks to Sebastian who took the paper with my name and honored me with The Power of Schmoozing award!
I will play to the loto today! But just I don't understand why you say:"It was fun that the young man from Columbia won today", don't forget I'm a woman from france.
It's my first award on the bloggosphere! I'm very glad!
Have a beautiful wednesday!
But say me if there is an error...I know you love Sud America!

That's a great way of doing it Tor, to have Sebastian pick from a bowl as it is really hard to pick our five from all of your friends (and everyone is worth the awards - right!).

Btw: Remember you are allowed to put up the award sign on your sidebar now :-)

Tor - thanks so much for the kind words. You are so awesome... And yes I started schmoozing when I began European travels back in 2000! It has landed me some great friends and many meetings even which I have not mentioned...

Christina, pflight, CS (whom I didn't even know but met)... the list goes on...
