Happy Holidays

This is the last blog post of 2017!

I wanted to use it to say thank you to all the people who have made A Girl’s Guide to Project Management possible this year. It’s a huge list, but it takes A LOT of work to put together the articles, the giveaways, manage the emails and do everything else behind the scenes that keeps this blog running. So without further ado, bring on the streamers and champagne for…

Companies that let me review their software

Thanks to these companies who gave me free access to their software for review purposes:

People I have interviewed

It’s an effort to be interviewed: I’ve done a few, so I know what it takes. Thanks to these people who made space in their calendars to share their ideas with us all:

People who have invited me to speak at their events

I’m grateful to the following groups who invited me along to speak at their events or to their students:

People who have provided guest posts

It takes time to write an article, so I’m grateful for these people who have contributed articles to the blog this year (and meant I didn’t need to write something myself for that slot):

Publishers and authors who have sent books to review

As an author, I love reading, and supporting other authors. So I’m grateful for the publishers and authors who have made that easy for me this year by letting me read and review a huge list of excellent books.

Our wonderful sponsors

What some people don’t realise is that it costs money to keep a blog running, and while I’m happy to do it, having sponsorship and advertisers to help offset the cost of web hosting, firewall and virus management software, email systems, design tools etc etc, makes a huge difference. I’m grateful to our fantastic sponsors over the past year for helping me keep the lights on here, and letting me share ideas and inspiration with you all.

So, a big thank you to Genius Project, BrightWork, ActiveCollab, Portfolio Display and Mindjet for their support this year.

And a few personal thank you’s to

  • Shannon, for all her help on… everything
  • Marya at Suncoast VA for social media support
  • Mum, for proofreading TWO books this year (Communicating Change and another book due out in the Spring)
  • Caroline, for getting what it means to run a business from home
  • And Jon, Jack and Oliver for Being On Team B

And finally… to you. Whether you found this blog through the Project Management Cafe Community on Facebook, or through one of my books, or by accident, I’m thankful that you have stuck around to read this far, and for being the inspiration behind why I write about managing projects.

 

We’re taking a break now until the New Year, when we’ll be back with an absolutely awesome guide to making 2018 your best year ever as a project manager, plus all the usual How To articles, and a good dose of what it’s really like to be managing projects in the 21st Century.

Until then I hope you have a fantastic holiday break, whether you are celebrating in some way or not at all.
