I’m in the Top Ten!Unconditional Confidence Comes in 4th as One of the Most Influential Blogs on Public Speaking

Oh, My! I can’t believe it! This is utterly fabulous.


I was named one of the Top Ten Most Influential Bloggers on Public Speaking by THE Public Speaking Blog published by Eric Feng! What a surprise and a huge honor. I came in 4th on a very impressive list of expert bloggers who contribute mightily to the field of public speaking.

Check out this list!

#1 – Garr Reynolds – Presentation Zen

#2 – LifeHacker

#3 – John Kinde – Humor Power

#4 – ME! Nancy Tierney – Unconditional Confidence

#5 – Tom Antion – Great Public Speaking

#6 – Paul Evans – Public Speaking Success

#7 – Steve Pavlina – Steve Pavlina Blog

#8 – Darren Fleming – Executive Speaking Blog

#9 – Gary Gwee – Connexion! Communication Resources

#10 – Bronwyn Ritchie – Pivotal Public Speaking

The ironic thing is that the Public Speaking Blog, which awarded this honor, should be at the very top of ANY list about public speaking. At least, it would be at the top of my list. I don’t know anyone who writes as passionately, generously, and authoritatively than Eric at the Public Speaking Blog. Sure, I’ve disagreed with him on certain points from time to time, but that’s what I love and admire about him and his blog: he gives and gives and gives great information AND he’s open to other opinions and points of view.

Oh, and he’s pretty darned funny, too.

Maybe that’s why I feel especially honored to be included on his list. I have such respect and admiration for Eric and his Public Speaking Blog that this Top Ten honor is all the more gratifying and significant to me.

By the way, Eric is about to release his new book, The FAQ Book on Public Speaking. You can download the first chapter for FREE here. I’ve read it, and I can’t wait for the rest of this book!

Okay, I’m off to open a bottle of champagne and congratulate myself.

    You are most welcome Nancy! You deserve the 4th position. But I guess the most rewarding thing for us is to know and see that our readers have grown tremendously as speakers. Don’t you agree?

    Eric –

    Yes, it is the miracles I get to witness every day that really thrill me and keep me in the game, even when the going gets rough. For me, it’s watching people become so much more confident in their ability to express themselves freely and with a sense of joy rather than fear. THAT rocks my world.

    But being 4th on your Top Ten list is pretty cool, too..

    Nancy I love your bogs and just wanted to say you are a real inspiration. I have grown in confidence from your blogs although I have also used hypnosis as well to bolster my confidence. I would recommend self-hypnosis (www.leadingminds.biz) and a good dose of your blog!
    Take care,
    Anna Maria
