MoSop expresses a GIANT THANK YOU to everyone who has made 2010 such a successful and satisfying adventure! Much more important than mere numbers or statistics is the personal connection I have made with the global community over the past year. I believe that being a “blogger” has expanded my capacity for compassion, enriched my understanding of humanity, and ennobled my goals for the future. I have learned first hand that individually, we each have been given a voice that can make a positive difference to someone else. Even better, collectively, we have the power to change the world for the better! It is Mormon Soprano’s desire and goal for 2011 to continue making a positive contribution to the World Wide Web Blog-o-sphere [aka "Bloggernacle"]. Whether it is by:

  • promoting understanding of Mormonism
  • participating in respectful conversations
  • building mutual respect
  • simply adding a little positivity in support of global peace.

Count me in, I’m there!  :) So, Onward and upward, my fellow earth travellers. May the second decade of the 21st Century be our Best. Decade. Ever!
