Call me a copycat, but I saw a very good blog post by my colleague Alex McDaniel titled, “What Does Twitter Say About Your Life in 2012?” and read about a free tool named Vizify that allows users to create interactive profiles using information aggregated from social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, LinkedIn and Instagram. So, I wanted to see what this year looked like for me and the tweets I put out. Needless to say, this was a busy year full of changes in my life, personally and professionally.
These are the terms I tweeted the most in 2012 — yes, I know there are 19 days left in the year.

I had my first hurricane experience with Isaac and did double duty for the Suburban Digest page that week.

The week I moved from The Madison County Herald to The Clarion-Ledger was busy and stressful.
Please forgive me for not tweeting today’s stories. I’m so busy with my new position at The Clarion-Ledger.

I tweet using this hashtag almost everyday because this page prints every Thursday. My new beat is rolling along!
But, #SuburbanDigest planning rolls on. I do work for the page every day! I have really taken ownership of this page. Good.

I depend on social networks daily for information from my communities.
Byram and Canton must have two of the most active citizen-led Facebook pages I’ve ever seen. Comments on the daily!

Multimedia is something I’ve taken on this year as I strive to have a multifaceted beat. This particular video has over 4,000 views.

My first tweet from this twitter account at an assignment in Canton.
Very nice visit by Congressman Bennie Thompson and Deputy Sec. Of Ed. Anthony Miller. They are at Lanier HS In Jackson now.

My first experience seeing (and smelling) dead bodies.
Looks like the coroner has arrived to survey scene and pick up the bodies. On Country Club Rd in Jackson twitter.com/MCHerald/statu…

I have a soft spot for our military. These are the most selfless people in the world.

I use the word “home” a lot as it is my favorite place before and after work.
Happy Saturday! Just got home from Zumba with Cure Sickle Cell Foundation. Shower, power nap then work!

The growing pains were killing me when I first started the Suburban Digest page.
I have another week to find more news briefs for the Suburban Digest. The page isn’t ready yet. *sigh*

My tweet for 12/12/12.

On September 11, the city of Jackson presented me with a parking ticket. Never again!
Paid my first (and last) parking ticket fine in the city of Jackson.
