This is my 1000th post!!! And what a crazy ride it’s been getting here.
It started with me trying to find my place among a group of bloggers I respected and had learned so much from. In November 2005, I wrote 65 posts (a number I only topped 6 times in the last year and a half). That month I was learning all about blogs, RSS, wikis – yes, it has only been a year and a half that I’ve been paying attention to these technologies!
So – while trying to find a place in the biblioblogsphere I:
- Pissed off my peers (and apologized)
- Designed (well – wrote the code for – RayAna was the designer) a kick-ass intranet that everyone wants
- Pissed of a vendor (and refused to apologize)
- Got accepted into library school
- Got members of 5 libraries to attend a session on Koha (and got at least 3 of those libraries excited about the possibility of a great change)
- Got a new job
- And most importantly – Learned enough to write 1000 posts about!!!
Other blog stats (before hitting publish): “There are currently 999 posts and 845 comments, contained within 60 categories.”
Also, on a related note – I am going to catalog my blog tomorrow (or soon) in OCLC (with the help of Chris Schwartz – who got sidetracked with me today on looking at cataloging entries for popular blogs). This is very exciting for me – and will be a great way to learn about cataloging internet resources.
I wanted this post to be about something big & huge (like the number 1000) but I thought it’d be more fun to reminisce – so there you go – some links to my favorite posts and bits of info. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading – and here’s to 1000 more posts!
