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.
