Switch and Shift Leaguers Ranked “Tops” by Huffington Post!



Switch and Shift received an early first-anniversary present in the form of this outstanding article in The Huffington Post:

Top 100 Business, Leadership and Technology Twitter Accounts You Must Follow

The article was written by friend of Switch and Shift Vala Afshar, who himself is in my Top 10 list of Twitter accounts to follow (read his tweets for a day and tell me if you agree. You will.)

Why was this a present for us? Both Shawn and I were listed in Vala’s top 100 article – that in itself is more of an honor than we can say. But it gets better! Looking over the list, we found six more of our contributing bloggers on there. We also spied several more business leaders who are scheduled to contribute their brilliance with our readers in the New Year.

All of which brings me to this: it’s possible, just possible, that this co-blog of ours has gotten off on the right foot. Switch and Shift may only be one year old, but for eight of our bloggers to be recognized by The Huffington Post among Twitter’s top 100…? That’s more than either of us ever dared hope for.

And we’re barely under way. Stick around, my friends. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
