Traffic to my blog increased by 40,000 visitors compared to 2011. Now, that’s quite the achievement!
I have been mentioned quite a few times this year. Mary Smith, in particular, recommended two of my posts — a true honor!
This year saw a sharp increase in comments on Creative Ramblings, something about which I am very happy. The seven articles below are great examples:
Thank you to my top commenters:
During the last 12 months, I have had the opportunity to network with a bunch of people who repeatedly contributed and shared excellent content and ideas to the blogosphere.
2013 promises to be another busy, yet exciting time.
First, my eBook on social media strategies should be out by mid-year. While I am still working on the first draft, I am happy to report that things are looking quite good! You can follow my progress directly on this blog, as well as on Pinterest, Twitter, and Storify.
Would you like to help promote my new eBook before, during, and after its release? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to the mailing list.
This year, I will also facilitate 10 social media workshops in Winnipeg, Canada. If time permits, I would like to organize a few affordable webinars as well.
Social Media 4 Good, my other blog, will have its own domain name and will be moved to self-hosted WordPress within the next few months. I love Tumblr, but the platform does not allow me to do too much.
I think that is all for this year. May you all have a wonderful 2013!
