Stevie Award Winners to Be Announced in New York in March 2007


Stevie Awards Finalist 2006 Santa Monica, CA – January 10, 2007 – Soapdom, Inc. and Soapdom.com was named a Finalist today in the Website of the Year category in The 3rd annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars.”  (New York Post, April 27, 2005).

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” winners will be announced during a gala event in New York in March.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S. and several other countries are expected to attend.  

More than 600 entries were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Best Executive, Best Entrepreneur, and Best Community Involvement Program.  Soapdom, Inc. is a Finalist in the Website of the Year category.

With a Marketing MBA from Fordham University, a BA in English/Journalism from the University of Florida, and ten years experience marketing online, Soapdom CEO, Linda Marshall-Smith, spearheaded the design, engineering and implementation of Soapdom.com.  “The goal from day one was to present the content with a marketing focus, encouraging fans to continue to tune in to their favorite soaps every day,” said Marshall-Smith. “Guiding Light is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2007.  Soaps are long entrenched in our daily lives. Whether you’re a soap fan or not, everyone has a story about how a soap opera in one way or another impacted their lives.” 

Soapdom.com combines community, news, show information, interviews, polls, e-commerce and other features like Soap Opera Baby Names and the Cybby Awards all designed to excite and engage the fans on a daily basis.  Advertising and subscriptions complete the revenue model.  Its robust content/advertising management and delivery system was built entirely with open-source applications. Updated as news breaks, Soapdom.com engages the soaps community, building awareness of soap-related initiatives and providing a fun, safe, playful place for fans to learn about and discuss their favorite soaps.  Marshall-Smith’s focus in 2007 is to add video along with other expanded features.

“We want Soapdom.com to reach the fans at gut level,” said Marshall-Smith, “and being named a Finalist in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business, we’re well on the way. We congratulate the development team from neuforms design who was key in helping us realize our vision.”

Finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging.
Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs select Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists during final judging.

The elegant Stevie trophy was designed by R. S. Owens, the same company that makes the Oscar and the Emmy.

“Being named a Finalist in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an important achievement,” said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.  “It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of recognition.  We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition.”

“Soapdom is honored to be named a Finalist in The Third Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business in the Website of the Year category,” said Marshall-Smith.  “We have worked hard to deliver a site that is informative, fun, and easy to navigate.  It’s rewarding to know that our tireless effort is well received.”

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Blake Berris enjoys being "twisted!"

As the "twisted" character of Nick Fallon on Days of our Lives, one never knows what to expect, or what is lurking in that "deep thoughts" look. But for Emmy nominated Blake Berris, playing the role is fun, and he loves the challenge of not knowing what is up next.

"I have to tell you...I love this character. The writers' have done a great job resurrecting him," Berris said. The character gets more interesting and more bizarre each episode, and I love it that way."

Berris admitted that when he picks up the script, he is always excited in seeing just what old Nick is up to. He is a member of the Horton clan, son to Jessica and Joshua Fallon. He surfaced a few years ago all grown up and as a shady dark guy terrorizing poor Melanie (Molly Burnett). He was carted off to prison and is now back.
