Jill Blashack Strahan, founder and CEO of Tastefully Simple, says that in business (as in life), it is important to celebrate your successes. So with that in mind, I'm happy to report that Inc.com has been nominated for a National Magazine Award for Digital Media in the category of best online tool — for the valuation calculator that was created by our friend and frequent collaborator Tommy McCall.
The award is intended to honor "the outstanding use of interactive tools that enable users to create or share content, participate in communities, improve the quality of their lives or enjoy recreational activities."
Our fellow nominees in this category are ESPN.com, Instyle.com, MenHealth.com, and Spectrum.ieee.org. Elsewhere, the judges bestowed nominations on NYMag.com, TheAtlantic.com, Wired.com, Slate, and the Daily Beast.
We're thankful for the recognition, and hope you've enjoyed the work we've been producing for you, both in print and online. Feel free to post a comment below telling us how we're doing, and what we could do better. After all, Tastefully Simple's Strahan says humility and striving for excellence are important too.
