TechSmith Corporation Chooses The Cre8pc Blog
:: Wednesday, February 02, 2005 ::
It's so hard to concentrate on writing about my big exciting announcement when my daughter keeps yelling down to my office questions about a Groundhog.
"Yes", I rattle off to her while pulling up my blog application, "The Groundhog didn't see his shadow, so we have 6 more weeks of winter." (Daughter wails to boyfriend on the phone.)
His name (the Groundhog, not the boyfriend) is Punxsutawney Phil. No, I'm not going to spell it, I yell back to her. It's a town in Pennsylvania. "The whole country watches a groundhog from Pennsylvania?" she asks. Yes, I dutifully reply. So now Pennsylvania can be famous for the Philadelphia Eagles and a groundhog.
I've impressed her with this.
Now, for my news.
Blog of the Month
TechSmith Corporation, maker of my favorite screenshot tool, Snag-It, and other products, has selected this blog for its February Blog of the Month in their "What is Usability?" section of the web site. (Scroll to the bottom of that page to see the Cre8pc blog link.)
Last year TechSmith launched Morae, a software based tool used in usability testing and user experience research. Ever since I saw their ads in the Usability Professional Association's quarterly publicaiton for members, I've been eyeing that tool for my own business use.
Along with the honor of being their Blog of the Month, I'm crafting an article for their February Morae Newsletter, which is due out, oddly enough, on my daughter's birthday.
Which brings me back to my daughter again. When I told her, on her return from school today, that my blog was chosen and I'd be writing an article, she wanted to know, "Do you get paid for it?", which translated means, "Can we go to the mall?"
I'll never be famous in my house, will I.
