happy belated, and many more

I’m not quite sure how I missed it, but lis.dom turned 1 year old the Sunday before last. Its purpose has changed somewhat since that first post (for the real wayback feel, here’s the Blogger version), but then, my life has changed somewhat in that time, too. Here’s a brief year in review:

May 2005: I finish my first year of library school

June 2005: I go to ALA in Chicago and meet all kinds of cool people

July 2005: books they don’t want on display in Hillsborough County, Florida, one of lis.dom’s greatest hits
August 2005: a post on my other blog wins “Best Overall” in the EFF Blog-a-thon

September 2005: I got a Flickr account

October 2005: My display for Teen Read Week is featured in the PLA Blog.
November 2005: I have a telephone interview for a job in Wyoming.

December 2005: I turn 30!

January 2006: I fly to Wyoming for another interview and get offered the job, and I move from Blogger to WordPress
February 2006: packing, moving. . .

March 2006: I start my new job!

April 2006: I give my first presentation as a professional librarian and finally get around to updating my about pages

May 2006: I finish my first year of lis.dom blogging and find out that I’m definitely going to ALA

It’s been quite an exciting year, and I look forward to the one ahead. I plan to learn enough to be dangerous, go on more hikes in my new home state (I am beat after 8 miles on the Greybull River on Saturday), read more books and magazines and blogs, take more pictures, finish my MLIS, do more off and online writing, and have more fun. I wish the same for all of you.

    Happy blogversary! I have enjoyed getting to know you this year.

    As for getting dangerous with CSS, let me know how that goes. People have said that they liked the presentation, but I don’t know that any of those people had actually gone through the whole thing. I’m more than willing to update it to make it easier to understand.

    Congratulations, Laura! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to more. Thanks for your friendship and support!

    Thanks for all the congratulations and good wishes–it may be shallow, and beyond the larger purpose of Expressing Oneself and so on, but one of the most gratifying parts of blogging is knowing that you have readers, and getting to know them. I often forget that I’ve never actually met some of you in person.
