2012 Year in Review: 12 areas in which my library of resources grew

It is no secret that I am a big fan of twitter. One of the major reasons I give praise to the aforementioned medium is due to the immense amount of resources I am able to compile, reference, collect, gather, utilize, share, and otherwise improve upon. The following is a sample list of resources I accrued through twitter in the year of 2012. Many of these resources led to personal and professional growth. In addition, these resources are meant to be shared with others who could benefit... from teachers, to professores, to parents, to students, I hope you can benefit from the following list of resources with interactive links:
