Contributors Honor Lyn Lomasi with Day of Appreciation

We at the Associated Content offices are amazed and delighted every day by the close bonds of friendship and random acts of generosity that characterize our community of Contributors. That spirit of camaraderie was especially apparent today as a group of Contributors used social networks to organize "Lyn Lomasi Appreciation Day," honoring one of our most active Contributors by sharing her work through social networks including Twitter and Facebook.

Lyn Lomasi is an Associated Content Community Guide who has worked tirelessly to help new Contributors succeed. She's always eager to assist other writers in the promotion of their content. On April 23rd, 2010, the tables were turned as numerous Contributors pledged to share at least ten pieces of Lyn's content with their own social networks and/or personal blogs and websites. Many also shared a message recognizing Lyn's extraordinary contributions to Associated Content on the topics of parenting, green living, and home schooling.

The Day of Appreciation began as soon as Lyn logged off her computer and went to bed last night. Her friends and supporters immediately started sharing some of her best articles through Facebook, Twitter, and their own websites. This morning, Lyn woke up and began her day of writing and social networking with a great surprise: Her writing was all over the Internet, along with compliments and thanks for the help she's given to so many Contributors. True to form, Lyn immediately took time to thank each participant individually.

Associated Content congratulates Lyn Lomasi on the hard work and gracious character that has endeared her to so many Contributors. We're Lyn Lomasi Appreciators, too, and we can't wait to meet her during her upcoming visit to the Denver office.

Thanks to the group of Contributors who organized to celebrate Lyn. What great friends you all are!

Great tribute, guys. Thanks!

AC Community said...

Lyn is by far one of the most positive people on AC. Thanks for everything you do, Lyn!

Heather K. Adams said...

I'm so glad Angie organized this day for Lyn! Lyn works hard promoting everyone else's work, and she deserved this day of appreciation.

Thanks for recognizing her work as well, AC :) Great job!

ACJelena said...

Kudos to Lyn! You deserve a day to bask in the knowledge that so many people count you as a great friend and mentor!

Lyn Lomasi said...

Wow! I am still so touched by this! The AC Family amazes me every day. Actions such as this and countless times when fellow Contributors have been so supportive of each other are a huge part of what makes the AC Community so special.

This means so much to me - more than I can say in words. A writer at a loss for words - that's how awesome it made me feel.

I don't think of members of the AC Community only as colleagues, but as family. What everyone did today is an excellent testament if anyone ever wonders why.

I truly appreciate everyone who participated and even those who didn't.

Thanks again, everybody! And if I missed anyone in my individual thanking, it was not intentional.

Y'all are awesome!

You rock, Lyn. Thanks for contributing so much to our AC Community!!

Now I feel guilty for not learning how to Tweet, but I will. Lyn DID show my learn how to hyperlink after I got a partner call that demanded four hyperlinks and I'm desperate like "Oh, no, what can I do?" And Tweets all my stuff. And showed me how to do boldface and italics. Dang I forget everything. Thank you Lyn; be sure to take time for your own writing too.!

Lyn is incredible and I'm so glad to see that she got recognition for her efforts to help others and promote their work, maybe even more than she promotes her own!

Stephanie Armstrong said...

This is amazing! Lyn gave me very helpful advice when I first joined AC a few years ago. I'll never forget that. I don't know where she finds the time to do all of this. She always responded to my messages and tweets on Twitter. She is an amazing writer and person. She really makes AC great. Lyn Lomasi deserves a week of appreciation!

Jessica Ballard said...

Aww, this is sweet and Lyn you are awesome. You and Angie were one of the first people to welcome me back when I started getting involved with AC again and you are always there to answer my questions. You deserve an appreciation day!

I remember as a newcomer in AC, while I was browsing through the website I landed up on contents by Lyn and she was the first contributor who inspired me and have been her fan since. Congratulations Lyn, wish you great success.

Ahermitt said...

I was sorry I missed that day too. She certainly deserved it.

Renee Bagley said...

Lyn is a nice person, and a great writer. I can see why she got this honor! Not to mention that she is always one of the first people to help and answer questions when help is needed. Way to go, Lyn!

Shamontiel said...

For the life of me I can't remember how I was introduced to Lyn (or MomieTulottes as I knew her before), but she's always been positive, helpful, optimistic and wanting to help.
