Two very nice things happened over the past couple weeks. This blog was named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the 15 Entrepreneur Blogs Worth reading.
Then….as if that wasn’t cool enough, a blogger I have just discovered, Mark Nagurski from Really Practical Marketing wrote about a Marketing Minute post on his blog. He said, in part, "The more I read from Drew McLellan the more I want to buy him a beer…"
So of course, I commented on his blog, saying that I was printing off his post and if we were ever in the same place (he’s in Ireland) I was totally calling him on the beer offer. Come on…the man said free beer.
Mark goes one better and finds YouGotBeer.com. He was literally able to buy me a beer over the internet. I got an e-mail notice that he had bought me a beer. I go to the site and choose which restaurant (and there are several) I’d like to get my beer from and voila, they send me a gift card!
Being mentioned in the Wall Street Journal AND a free beer. It doesn’t get much better!
The other blogs mentioned in the WSJ article are:
Small Biz Trends
