4 years on Twitter – 4,000 posts later

My sixth year blogging is coming up next month (April 2012), and today was my fourth year anniversary on Twitter (you can follow me should you wish as @hummingbird604). It’s been 4 very interesting years and it coincided with my 4,001 blog post. I’m not 100% sure why almost 9,500 people would choose to listen to what I post on Twitter, but the reality is, at the core, I think I have always been a community builder. It’s in my blood and in the way I relate to people. As I joked on Twitter today, I may not know everyone, but I am sure I know someone who knows someone who knows someone who may be able to help you.

I am very privileged to have solid business, personal and collaborative relationships with a number of brands, individuals at all levels of government, businesses and startups. I love the connectivity that Twitter has brought to me. I love having the opportunity to support non-profits, the arts community and the local food industry, highlight the beauty of this province and this wonderful country that adopted me.

It’s not been without its challenges. I have had attacks online on a regular basis ever since my blog’s readership grew. And on Twitter, there is always someone who will dislike me and what I have to say. See, that’s the beauty of social media: you choose who to follow. You choose to listen (or not). And I’m eternally grateful for the opportunities that I am afforded and for the contributions the people who chose to be connected with me make to my life. I hope I enrich their lives equally and in the same way.

Happy Twitter and blogiversary to me!
