From the department of shameless self-promotion: BNET has won two Best in Business Awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. The first award was for online general excellence among websites with more than 2.5 million monthly visitors. The second award went to BNET blog Sales Machine for best blog in the over 2.5 million category. Here's what the judges had to say:

"Though launched in just 2007, this site has established itself as a noteworthy resource for business executives seeking practical information. Going beyond its unique and sophisticated look, it also encourages active participation by viewers. Material is well-organized and top-notch, focusing on what is new and exciting. This is a great new player on the business information scene that has a style all its own."

Sales Machine received these kind words:

"This blog is particularly relevant and useful to its audience, avoiding some of the often-repeated cliches in sales and instead encouraging its viewers to defy conventional wisdom. Its focus on how to sell during a recession is a roll-up-your-sleeves approach that is neither Pollyanna nor Grim Reaper. The presentation is smooth with a number of elements, such as video, that fit well in the overall theme. It is a site to which viewers will return."

Congratulations to Geoffrey James, our Sales Machine blogger, and thanks to our dedicated readers for your honest feedback and avid participation. We couldn't have done it without you!
