As the new year approaches the social giants are summing up 2012. I like to look at my last year and look at all of the unexpected things and big accomplishments I had in the year. My blog is a great way to keep track of things like that.

Facebook Year in Review
Facebook offers the opportunity to view your Year in Review according to them. It pulls your 20 top posts according to how many Likes, Shares, and Comments on each post. Mine was a bit accurate because it included quitting my job and starting my own business and some milestones included in that process, including my work with Eventbrite but it also missed the new friends I made on the Internet, a ton of fun events I went to, the QT I spent with friends and fam, my trip to Austin, and all of the amazingness the last year brought for me.
