    I’m glad you got some props for your article. I want to make certain you keep pumping out blog posts here at Conversation Marketing.
    Thanks again!

  2. Congrats Ian! You deserve it.
    I read a few of the other articles on the poll and as far as the ones I read (the one’s with boring titles already lost in my book) you won fair and square. Keep it up.

  3. Congratulations,Ian! Well deserved. Completely agree with @Laurence. Fair and square.
