    I definitely think you have all of the key points in here, but what really stuck out to me was “Passion”. I think it’s soooo important to be passionate about what you do and make sure it shows through your work. I also think being passionate is a great motivator to take your work to the next level!

    Hi Deirdre,

    This is such a great roadmap for anyone looking to build an online community — whether it’s through Twitter, a blog or some other platform. From my perspective, I think you and Valerie do an amazing job of creating a welcoming environment. Whether someone is one of your chat regulars, or if they’re a newbie, you extend a welcome to them. You also don’t discriminate based on number of followers. That type of environment adds a level of comfort, making people feel like it’s a place they belong.

    Congrats on another successful year! 🙂
