Things I’ve Learned This Year in Community Management

It's Christmas Eve, and I'm typing on my laptop with my dog curled up next to me on the couch. I want to take this quiet moment to reflect on the things I've learned specifically as a community manager this year. I have experienced enormous changes in many of the key areas of my life in 2013: relationship, career, pets, moves. When I think about it, all I can do is sigh and be grateful for how far I've come.
