The Pulse: Chamber of Commerce Awards

This week's Pulse comes from Misty at MySpace and her blog post is about winning an award from the Kentucky Press Association and the upcoming Chamber of Commerce Awards:
I recently found I'd won at least one second-prize award in the annual Kentucky Press Association competition, and was thrilled to death with that.

Possibly even more thrilling (mostly because it came out of the blue) was I found I am a finalist in the Printing/Marketing category for the Maysville/Mason County Area Chamber of Commerce's annual awards ceremony.

Granted, this award encompasses a much smaller area, and I'm one of 10 finalists and I don't expect to win. However, someone had to think well enough of me to nominate me to even be considered for the award, so I'm very pleased.

Congrats Misty!

The Chamber Awards ceremony will take place on January 27th at the Washington Opera House. I checked and still no web-related categories. C'mon guys, that's sooo 1990s. : ) Actually I'm only half-serious. John Carpenter, the Chamber's Executive Director, knows the importance of the web to Maysville. Under his direction, the Chamber has maintained their comprehensive website ( for many years now. It was one of the first official sites for the local area. Carpenter himself even kept a blog of the Chamber's activities for a time. Now if only all that tech-savvy can translate to the Awards.

The Pulse is a weekly series at the Maysville Kentucky Blog where we pull something we found in the blogosphere that relates to Maysville and share it with our readers.

Misty winning would be awesome. There's a lot of candidates to choose from and I think the added category will help shed light on web activity in the area.

I may have to go and join the Chamber myself : )

Consider it done. However, I will need to run it by our "Takin' Care" committee, which includes Sean's wife - Nicole. Web content takes in many of our fields and, incidently, could include the likes of Misty considering the Ledger is published online.

As one of the two MCs for the event, I think it's important that we recognize the Web content folks. Maybe next year we can have some Web-centrict categories. I'll work on that with John Carpenter (the head of the Maysville-Mason County Chamber).

Congrats Misty!
