I knew it was here somewhere and this morning I found it. Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of Connecting Librarian. To celebrate, this is my 127th post. Never thought of getting that far when I started with my first post “In the beginning….”
Those 127 posts have had 144 comments, which is much better than I expected, even accounting for the fact that nearly half of those comments are from me, responding back to comments made.
How do I feel about blogging 2 years on? I’m in awe. I never dreamed of the power this medium could have. Its enabled me to vent in a healthy way, to work through my thoughts on issues that are important to me and most importantly, linked me to a fantastic community of people passionate about libraries, world-wide. It has been a great personal and professional satisfaction to know that my musings are of interest to others and I appreciate all your support as I have stumbled, ranted, mused and journey through these last two years.
So where to from here. I have some dearly respected friends suggest I get my own domain for this blog and other professional stuff and it makes sense. I now have some presentations and a report to share and my own domain would be the place to make those available to anyone interested. I also plan on writing the odd journal article or two, so that would be their home also. So watch this space as I plan on moving it before year end.
So flowers to you and many thanks, for helping to make these last two years of blogging interesting, provoking, inspiring and fun! Although things have been a little dry of late, here’s to the next two years and more of passionate sharing and support of our wonderful profession, both by me and you!
