Yesterday was about the top ten posts y’all read the most. Today is about what went on in 2012 that mattered to me. By the way, I’m doing this one because I saw the Facebook “Year in Review” – A look at your 20 biggest moments from the year including life events, highlighted posts and your popular stories and was strangely unmoved by its contents. I guess I didn’t share my biggest moments properly. Anyway.
Number of interviews/articles – 2
an interview on being the Producer of Proud with Live with Culture, and a first person article for Charlebois Post on marketing. It’s still the most-read article for the month of December. Which is extremely cool.
Number of workshops – 7
#Consultancy – Why Arts Consultants Need Their Own Online Presence Social Media for Artists, Compass Camp Workshop, Tools For Your Tools: Social Media Workshop for artists Technological Innovation: On and Off the Stage, Shopping, Gossip, Trends and Friends – How Women are Shaping the Social Media Landscape and Parkdale Connected.
Number of Arts Marathons 1
see – Art Is Too Expensive and There’s Nothing to Do Anyway
I had a blast doing my marathon, and even though it wasn’t in the top ten clicked on posts, it was the one that generated the most in-person conversation. I might do it again.
Number of Political Days 3
Day at the Hill in Ottawa (October), Day at the City here in Toronto (November), City Hall Deputations (December).
Politicians spoken to about the importance of Arts and Culture:
Senators 1, MPs 1 City Councillors 4.
Number of Field Trips and Guest Speaker Engagements 3
The visual arts students from Jarvis Collegiate, the Media Arts Class from Sir Oliver Mowat, the theatre students from George Brown – thank you all for being bright and talented and relieving me a bit about the future.
Corin Raymond has raised over $6000.00 in the Great Canadian Tire Money Caper. I am utterly impressed and proud to know him, both for his musical talent and business acumen.

Sunday Roundup this week will look a little wonky and full. And I’ll do some client-related highlights on Monday. And then it’s a New Year – we can talk about that when it gets here. Like, next week.
