Thank you – Australia’s Best Business Blog 2015
Ads and I are absolutely stoked to be named #1 in Smart Company’s Australia’s 20 Best Business Blogs 2015.
As is always the case, we’ve had more than a little help along the way! So we wanted to make some thank yous.
To you, our valued reader, we appreciate you taking the time to read this blog and for sharing with your friends too.
A huge thank you to our Chief Contributor Will Blunt. Will has been working with us for nearly a year now and has written some cracking posts including Your Ultimate Blog Checklist which has been shared over 2000 times! Will kicked off his own business, Blogger Sidekick last year and has been a stellar regular contributor to our blog this past year.
We’d love to thank our guest bloggers who’ve also made some fantastic contributions in the last 12 months. We’ve learned so much just by reading our own guest posts! :-) These are some really smart articles and we hope you’ve enjoyed them too.
