December 27th – Social web moment

Did you meet someone you used to only know from her blog? Did you discover Twitter?

Ha, well I already blogged about twitter in a previous prompt, so it is already known how much I like twitter and that I think it is a great communication and networking tool. As far as who I have met in 2009, I have to say that I met a lot of great folks online, mostly via twitter.

The people that have stood out in my mind are creators. When I say creators, I mean anyone who creates something. Whether they are a writer, photographer, artist or create crafty items, they are all creators. And, all of the creative people I have met online via twitter, facebook, or the like are amazing individuals. The passion these folks have not only in what they create, but for creativity is awesome. That said, I cannot single out just one or even two of these people. I believe they know who they are. I hope to get to be better friends with each one of them in the next year. And, I hope I can add something to their creative endeavors as well, maybe inspire them in some way.

December 23rd – Web tool

It came into your work flow this year and now you couldn’t live without it. It has simplified or improved your online experience.

Here is where the truth comes out, I love twitter. The ability to be able to instantly communicate with 140 characters to anyone in the world is pretty neat. Not only can this be done online on the website itself, but to be able to continue this communication using your cellphone or PDA device is great. Twitter has quickly become one of my favorite networking tools.

I believe that utilizing twitter has really helped my online presence in 2009. It has helped me meet some great people, and even take part in my first “tweet-up” in NYC. It was a great and fun gathering of folks I had only previously spoken to online via twitter and other online communities.
