2013: A Year in Review

by Kimberly on December 27, 2013 · 0 comments

2013 is rapidly coming to a close. As the year ends, it is customary to take a moment and reflect on what has transpired. In that spirit, I invite you to join me as I share with you a look back on 2013 through the eyes of the Music Therapy Maven.

Most Read

How You Can Get Involved in Social Media Advocacy (1/8/13). This post not only was the most read post of 2013, but it’s in the top 10 most read posts on the Maven ever!

Most Commented

Tie—Mommy Mondays: Get a Job…? and Mommy Mondays: Initials Reflections from a Pseudo-Single Mommy. I’m cheating a bit here as the most read post above was also the most commented on, but these two posts tied for a close second. I’ve received more comments, emails, tweets, and feedback from my Mommy Monday series that anything I’ve blogged about before. I’m grateful to be part of the conversation.

Personal Fave

Research and the Ph.D.: My Third “Child.” It only took two years, but I finally started opening up more about my dissertation research and this academic journey I’ve been taking. I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming years as my role as an academic continues to unfold.

Top Psychology Today Post

Why Holidays Music Can Hurt. This was hands down my top post of 2013. It seems this topic resonated with readers and I am humbled to have stumbled upon what seems to be an important and necessary dialogue.

Fave Music Therapy Round Table Podcast Episode

Episode 42: Are Music Therapists Too Nice? My fellow podcast co-hosts discussed many topics this year, from working collaboratively to developing professional writing skills to intergenerational programming. But for some reason I’m feeling drawn to topics that are less mainstream, feel-good, and perhaps a bit more taboo. Which makes our discussion of whether as music therapists, and perhaps as women, we can be too “nice” as professionals.

Thank you, Reader, for joining me here at the Music Therapy Maven. I look forward to continuing the conversation with you in 2014.
