I’m honored to be Mr. June in the 2011 #SocialMen Calendar. What is #SocialMen all about?
The 2011 Bold and Digital Men of Social Media have come together for a wonderful cause: Falling Whistles. The calendar will be available in the early December is available now. You can also help restore peace in the Congo today by becoming a Whistle Blower for Peace. I’m sure you’re asking why the Congo. Please take a few minutes and watch Peace is the New Frontier and you will quickly realize how this affects all of us.
How I got here:
The FINAL ROUND of voting is underway has ended for the Bold & Digital Men of Social Media 2011 Calendar – and TIM is a finalist!
Thank you all for the amazing support! You can see the results for yourself below. The final 12 will be announced by the committe next week. Stay tuned!
When the week two of the #SocialMen Bold & Digital Men of Social Media 2011 Calendar voting started, I was thrilled to even be considered. What happened next was nothing short of amazing, at least to me. What started as a suggestion by Teresa Peek that I should be a nominee, turned into my final vote count being almost the total of all the other nominees in the 3 weeks of open voting combined. (960 for me in week 2, 1161 for all others in weeks 1-3)
Now we enter the final stages of the selection process for the 12 Bold and Digital Men that will be the face of a month. While voting will be part of the selection process, the Bold and Digital Women will have the last word on who gets to be part of the final 12! My hope is that the Bold and Digital Women: 1) take into consideration the vote count; 2) They are impressed by the number of comments left; and 3) They know I have shown a commitment to helping Falling Whistles
