A Year of Confluential Truth

MY YEAR

2014 was the first year that I really began to discover social media.

Looking back, I find it revealing rediscovering which of my Twitter messages and WordPress.com blog posts piqued the most interest in 2014.

As expected, most of my “retweeted tweets” (Try saying that ten times fast!) related to popular issues such as: healthcare reform, our drug abuse epidemic, sports, holidays, and the passing of iconic celebrities.

However, my heart was also warmed by your responses to my attempts at creativity and inspiration. It’s been fun.

I am continually trying to hone my communication skills. And while I don’t always get it right, I always love connecting with you.

You inspire me. And because of you I will do my best to share ideas with substance, purpose and hope.

Thanks for going there with me.

WordPress.com has prepared a 2014 annual report for Confluential Truth. Click here to see the complete report.

And in the comments to this post I have listed my “Top Twenty Retweeted Tweets” of 2014.

See you next year!
