year in review – 2008

2008 was a busy year, both personally and professionally for me.  It was also a great year – I started blogging, and have come to really love it.

Here are a few of my personal favorite posts from the first half of 2008.

whaddya mean you don’t recycle – some information on a disappointing phenomenon called “greenwashing”

don’t shy away from this – tips on networking for shy people (this is my most popular post)

honey, i’m sending a bunch of stuff home – ideas for better organizing your return shipment from any meeting

when i grow up – resources for anyone considering a career in meeting planning, as well as some job listing sites
