And that was 2009.

Hopefully yours was a good one, it certainly was for me.  On reflection, much happened in 2009 – both from a personal and web perspective. So much, in fact, it’s hard to imagine it all happened in just 365 days.

I felt like I learnt a lot this year. Much of which, I can say was due to Twitter. On the 5th of January 2009 I wrote my first blog post, entitled ‘What’s the point of Twitter?‘. I’d heard about it, wasn’t overly enthusiastic about it, but thought it was worth a go for a month. I never looked back and now check it at least a trillion times a day via my laptop or iPhone.

Twitter gave me access to the minds of brilliant people. Particular favourites being Chris Brogan, Brent Payne, Brian Clark, Lisa Barone, Scott Stratten and Steve Rubel. I’ve learnt a tremendous amount from them all (many thanks!), impacting my day job and the handful of personal endeavours that have spawned over the year. It’s been an incredibly enriching experience.

It makes me very excited about the prospect of 2010 – what on earth will we learn and acheive this year?

As we close the book on 2009, I’d like to thank everyone that has read my blog this year (or at the very least, come looking for images to re-use). It’s been a very enjoyable experience – one that I need to dedicate much more time to this year.

  • I’ve just started on Twitter (VERY late to the party I know) and am still struggling to see the point.

    I was reluctant to join because I hate the sensation of the world rushing by – and frankly that’s a sensation I’m already experiencing.

    Bah.

    Thanks for the comment Peter.

    I know what you mean about the world rushing by – it’s very easy to feel like that with Twitter, especially if you follow lots of people or they tweet a lot.

    The way I use Twitter is to dip in and out throughout the day and don’t worry about reading everything. A bit like switching on the news to see what is happening.

    The thing I’d advise is to keep an eye on any tweets directed at you specifically – anything with an @ symbol before your Twitter name. You can do this in the @Replies section on the right of your profile page on Twitter.com or on any of the 3rd party Twitter apps.

    It’s always nice to be able to respond to these personal messages, it’s what makes twitter social.

  • Hi Gary,

    That’s good advice.

    Until now I’ve felt like a contestant at the final stage of the Crystal Maze. : P

Hey!

Of all the places you could've ended up, you've arrived here. Might as well stay a while. Grab a coffee and have a read. And if you like it, give it a little share on your favourite social channel. My self esteem will appreciate it.

If you any questions or want just want to say hi, pick a social network or drop me a message here.
