My 2012 Year in Review.
Today’s goal is to write out my accomplishments and notable events that happened in 2012. I am hoping this will help me come up with goals for 2013. If you use Foursquare, it’s a great way to see where you’ve been all year.

Other things that happened this year
I didn’t give up on Instagram even though Facebook now owns it. I am contemplating switching from iPhone to Android for the first time since owning an iPhone. I am finally utilizing FrizzyFro.com for my media projects. I have become even more proficient at using Google Plus. And last but not least, my Wordyless blog is still active.
While my list may not be as spectacular as someone else’s list, I am pleased with my accomplishments. This list shows that I was out and about in the world.
I have met sooooo many of my online partners in mischief this year like Brotha Tech, TheCubicleChick, SocaMom, Shareef Jackson, Lamar from Black Married with Kids, Miss MidwesternBlend, Michelle, Kale, Deandra, Neal, Kennedy, Leila, Andrew, TheWayofTheId, Karen, and Professor Herbert.
I also saw a lot of online people I met last year like Jacke, Lorraine, J and J Lee, NaniCoolJ, Scott Hansleman, Luvvie, Adria Richards, Jeneba Ghatt, Ananda Leeke, Notorious Spinks, Cecily Kellogg, Elisa C Page, Afrobella, and June (via skype). Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see Jay Fingers while I was in NY. Maybe next time. If we met this year and I didn’t list your name, please forgive me. It wasn’t on purpose.
When people tell me the internet is not real life, I wonder if they’ve ever attempted to meet the people on the other side of their computer/smartphone. I think this is one of my best accomplishments this year.
Now it’s time for me to figure out what I want to accomplish in 2013.
