What a great month November 2009 turned out to be for this blog. We got a brand new look with the Hybrid News theme, and a new name to better reflect its purpose.
I’ve always liked the recaps that many bloggers do at the end of each month, so I’ve decided to do one here too. Let me know what you think, and if there is anything else you’d like me to include.
The Christian Entrepreneur in the News
In a complete shocker, The Christian Entrepreneur was honored as the Site of the Day for November 24th at whatawebsite.org by Will McCullogh. I’ve heard that we might even be chosen for site of the month, but we’ll wait for the official pronouncement to claim it.
We were also able to catch the eye of rising blogger star, Keller Hawthorne. In my three part series on her site, FresheVenture.com, I highlighted all of the great things that Keller has done with her website that small business owners can implement on their own sites. In fact, she did a post on her site about it called Am I Really a Shameless Self-Promoter?

With your help I think we will be able to accomplish the December goals. I know that the holidays are fast approaching, but you guys rock so I am confident.
I just wanted to say thank you again to my blog community. I’ve met so many new people during November who have really great blogs, and I hope to start shining the spot light on some of them soon.
If I can help you grow your blog please let me know how I can help. If you have suggestions for this blog, or this monthly recap report, I’d love to hear from you.
