I started Mama's Musings to reach out to the expat mother community
Munich, Germany (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
Christine Louise Hohlbaum's blog, Mama's Musings, was named a Finalist in the Blog of the Year category in The 4th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business, presented by Infiniti.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run - worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as "the business world's own Oscars." (New York Post, April 27, 2005).
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word "crowned," winners will be announced during a gala event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Monday, November 12. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S. and several other countries are expected to attend.
More than 800 entries were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Best Executive, Best Entrepreneur, and Best Community Involvement Program. Mama's Musings is a Finalist in the Blog of the Year category.
"I started Mama's Musings to reach out to the expat mother community," states Ms. Hohlbaum, American author of Diary of a Mother and SAHM I Am: Tales of a Stay-at-Home Mom in Europe and native of Charlottesville, VA. "Living abroad sometimes feels like being in outerspace. Writing about relevant parenting issues and providing pertinent content are the primary goals of Mama's Musings." Despite living in Germany, Ms. Hohlbaum frequently offers expert commentary for US media outlets, including Parents magazine and NPR.
"Ms. Hohlbaum deserves all of the attention and accolades that come with the Stevies," states her publisher, Nancy Cleary, author of the most recent 'A Book is Born'. "The more moms who read her work, the more moms will be inspired to pursue a life well-lived, and well-documented, such as hers!"
Finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging.
Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs select Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists during final judging.
"Being named a Finalist in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an important achievement," said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards. "It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of recognition. We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition."
