Today I was surprised with a lovely message:


The Huffington Post has placed me as one of the
Top 50 Healthy Living and Fitness Tweeters in Canada.

I’m really excited about the honour but have to admit that the road to getting here was not an easy one.

When I first started using Twitter in 2009, I had no idea what I was doing.  I tried a tweet here and there but never really found a groove.  It took a year before I found a reason to tweet and it turned into a passion – you probably know it better as #handhygiene.  The hashtag helped me learn even more about how to use the social media tool and thanks to some very awesome mentors, I gained not only a voice but also a method to use that voice. 

Evangelism – or more specifically Germevangelism.

I have to admit that when I first came up with the term, I wasn’t sure it would take off. But the last year has been a delight and I am proud to be a germevangelist.  So much so that it looks to be the direction of my future.  I’ll share more on that when the time comes.

For now, I hope you don’t mind me sharing my joy and accept my thanks for being there with me over these years.  You’re why I do this…

I would love to hear your thoughts.
