Thank YOU and looking ahead to 2010

Diary of a Web Gal

I moved this blog from Blogger to WordPress in early 2009 so this has really been my first full year building what I consider to be a professional online space – love Blogger but WordPress has given me so much more to play with.

I would like to thank YOU – yes, YOU reading this post – for your continued interest in the words I type. I have a healthy number of readers and am privileged to include you among them.

For me, 2009 has been a year of enormous growth. Beyond my wildest dreams.

I found my passion. Really found it.

Someone once said to me – when I was in my very early twenties – that I would fall into my career. It would just sort of happen.

And in a way, I kind of did.

It was an interesting journey that led me to all sorts of places. Over the years I’ve been a press officer, magazine editor, marketing and communications manager, movie contest co-ordinator, freelance writer, ad agency copywriter, publicist and many more.

Then about two years ago I found a way to turn my passion into my full-time career at the National Screen Institute when I became their website manager.

Most recently I was offered a way to share that passion (I am eternally grateful to you, Tutu Ilelaboye – I’m not even sure you know what you started).

One presentation for Canadian Women in Communications has led to a series of workshops for my employer, National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI).

I have a funny feeling there may be more.

I posted before that during my annual review with my boss I said I wanted to do more – share my knowledge with others. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to do that.

After all, this means nothing if I can’t talk about it with you.

So having celebrated early 2009 with a move from Blogger to WordPress I think I’m celebrating 2010 with in-person presentations.

With that, I look forward to meeting you in Winnipeg sometime during 2010.

    Congrats Liz!

    During my current sabbatical (forced by ill health) I have also stumbled – deeper – into my passion, writing. For lack of a better term, I call it “pain snark”; it's personal, super cathartic stuff about dealing w/ lupus, nephritis, meds, etc. Though I'm still in the -ahem- tens of readers :) I am loving it!

    In the process, I've also discovered the need to MOVE ON from the management consulting bit, which had its season but came to an end.

    Anyway, glad to have you as a great reference on many levels!

    Thanks, and here's to a killer 2010,
    Jeff Timpanaro
