Who is the Most Awesome Person Today?
My Version of ActiveRain's Daily "Member Spotlight" (Part X)
It's that time of the week again folks!
As promised, I've decided to make 2011 a year in which I introduce you, my dear readers, to a Rainer who you might not know, but probably should.
ActiveRain posts a "Member Spotlight" in their "Daily Drop" newsletter. This is my version...
For this week's post, that person is ActiveRain's very own:
Now I know that many of you already know Bob, but with so many new members recently, I'm certain there are some of you who do not, or are not subscribed to his blogs.
So for those of you who do know Bob, go do something else for a few moments or just scroll down past the line of Bob's for some stuff you might not know about one of our fearless leaders.
Ok, here we go.... Bob Stewart is is one of the many folks who make ActiveRain the great place that it is. As AR's "Community Evangelist", Bob is the link between ActiveRain and its 204,000+ members. If you have a question about your ActiveRain acount, need some insight into blogging, or have a technical question, Bob is your go to guy. And, rumor has it that whenever you click the "Contact ActiveRain" button at the bottom of the page, Bob gets a low voltage shock in his nether region! Go ahead. Give it a try.
And now for some things you might not know about Bob....
Before he joined ActiveRain, Bob spent many years as a traveling underwear salesman...
And, although this line of work proved quite successful for Bob, he couldn't stand the cat calls from the ladies anymore.
Bob then tried his hand at marketing his own line of lunch boxes. And while this also proved successful for him, Bob couldn't keep up with the massive demand, especially for his Hulk line of lunch boxes...
By the way, you can see the entire Bob Stewart lunch box collection here.
Bob sunk into a deep depression. He let himself go. Not knowing what to do or where to go, Bob followed the Grunge Rock movement to its then home in Seattle. It was there he looked for work as a stunt blogger....
Jonathan Washburn, CEO and founder of ActiveRain, found Bob on a street corner begging for work. Thankfully for Bob, Jonathan decided to take a chance on the destitute boy from Pig's Knuckle Arkansas. Apparently, it's worked out for everyone, and, as they say, the rest is history.
Anyway folks, if you aren't already subscribed to Bob's blog you need to go and do that right now. We'll wait. (insert Jeopardy theme here as we wait for you to return.)
I had the opportunity to meet Bob at RainCamp in Charlotte, NC last year and he's really a great guy. Bob is a wealth of knowledge and he has a great sense of humor. I consider him my friend...
And, because he's my friend, Bob gets to wear the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater" this week!
Here's to you Bob Stewart, the "Most Awesome Person of the Week"!
Next week's spotlight will be on.... YOU!
