    1. Has nothing to do with Paula, I like her. And I don’t dislike the Journal, quite the opposite! I just think that “innovative use of Facebook and Twitter” is a bit of a stretch.

  1. Hi Mack – Thanks for the shout-out, and the helpful reminder to be humble. I don’t mind the zinger – I was actually quite astounded myself to win the Eppy yesterday. (To clarify – NBC’s Today Show’s website, Today.com won for best use of social media in the larger market category. I won the parallel award for smaller market outlet.) I really do give the Edmonton Twitter and Facebook communities credit for the win. The judges seem to have been impressed with the way I’ve “built community” – and I sincerely and gratefully acknowledge that I wouldn’t have been able to do that unless we already had an amazing social media community here. I’ve learned a lot from you, Mack, and from Dave Cournoyer, and from many many of my Journal colleagues about working across social media platforms. It’s been a great adventure for me. But I did also wish to clarify one other thing. I didn’t nominate myself for either of these awards. The Hill and Knowlton thingy happened without my knowledge. And I didn’t even know that our social media editor, Kerry Powell, had nominated me for the Eppy, which is an international award judged by a very distinguished panel of judges, none of whom is known to me, until the short list came out last week. I do consider my win yesterday a win for Edmonton’s entire social media community. And I’m honoured to play a small part in its continued success. I’m also terribly proud of my colleagues Jana Pruden, Mariam Ibrahim, Brent Wittmeier and Lucas Timmons for their team Eppy win yesterday. It’s a challenging time here in the Edmonton Journal newsroom – and those two big international honours were a welcome morale-boost. Cheers! Paula
