It's that time again… time to reward another stand-out Creators community and crown them as a Ning Superstar. If you're not familiar with it, this is our way of saying thank you to the wonderful people who continue to make this community a vibrant one. Each Superstar gets the equivalent of a Ning Pro subscription for 3 months. It's a small way we can say thanks for the large amount of advice and time these folks have given to this community. This time around, we're honoring a consultant of sorts: Anthony Reardon.
Seems like every community has a theoretician, and Creators' own high-level thinker is Anthony Reardon. He provides advice to NCs in a lot of "critique my network" style posts, but you'll see him participating all over the place. He showed up a few months back, and since then he's been commenting and offering advice consistently in the main forum and in his own group on Creators, The Social Media Dojo. His specialty is social media, and he always has something positive to offer. If you read through his many thoughtful discussion posts, it's clear that he has taken a lot of time out of his days for this community.
And for that, we say THANK YOU! We encourage you to say thank you as well. Feel free to paste in something ridiculous and fun or sober and reflective if you've ever got a good bit of advice from him.
We wanted to know just where the heck he came from and what his background was all about. Read all about him in the Q&A with Nor Cal Social Media.
In your linked Q&A, I see that you are a United States Marine Corps veteran -
Thank you for your service to our country!
Wishing you all the best,
Way to go Anthony! You deserve it!!!
Congrats Anthony! I read your posts, even though you're a much deeper thinker than I. LOL Lots of good insight in them. You obviously know your stuff!!
Awesome:))) Congratulations Anthony, very cool.
WOW!! This is just great!
Thank you fellow Ning Creators for the terrific show of support and wonderful congratulations :). I think it's a true complement to even be mentioned alongside previous Ning Superstars. Amazing job making this network creator community rock!
Also, special thanks to Eric and the rest of the Ning Team. Thank you for recognizing my contributions to the Ning Creators community. It’s impressive for a company to be so open with the people that use their product, to use the platform by example, and to make participation so rewarding.
Oh and thank you for serving our country :)) I didn't realize that when I first offered congrats my family serves in the Air Force and I admire all of our soldiers so much you are true heroes thank you.
One of my favorite people on Creators! Congratulations, Anthony!
As others have expressed - - thank you sincerely for your service in the United States Marine Corps, and for helping protect our wonderful freedoms.
Best to you,
awesome and congrats!
He really deserves. I'm a careful reader of his texts.
I totally agree with the excerpt from the interview in which it is said that we need a new Ning Directory . Now, without the Creators Digest, is difficult to find new communities and see the best that is in them.
Excellent point, Thiago. Appreciate that feedback.
