3rd Twitterversary

In light of today being the 3rd Twitterversary of The Fifty Co-Op,  I decided to take a look back at what I was doing around this time last year. 

I went back to the post I did about California based MWBE Whole Vine and will share parts of that review below.

I celebrate having joined The SITS Girls blogging community and I have much appreciation for the viewers that have stopped by The Fifty Co-Op from all over the world. To be able to use the phrase, " from all over the world, " literally, is pretty cool in my book.

This past year saw an addition to the blog of more multimedia features as well as the first photo exhibit. I am glad that my interest in art has now become a part of The Fifty Co-Op and, even better, it connected me with the great Blogger

After that first exhibit, I did another exhibit of photography from with the goal of inspiring action on the issue of human trafficking.

I don't really think in terms of disappointments, I just think in terms of each event or interaction and what I took from it.

I look forward to finishing off my to do list of finished reviews to post here and I also look forward to completing the features I have in progress.

I have to thank some people from the Blogging community who have inspired me and/or encouraged me in some way or have been a part of the growth of the blog.
