One Year Blogging Anniversary



I’m celebrating the (approximate) one year anniversary of my blog. Woo hoo, party party! So bear with me a sec as I reflect upon my year of being online, and think a little about the next year.

Last August, I started to blog about library technology types of things semi-regularly. One year later, I’m still blogging, I’m still having fun, I’m meeting new people, and… well… just take a peek at some of what’s gone on with my blog-ish stuff in the last year:

Blog: I started blogging with Blogger in 2003, but really truly started this blog in August of 2004. Some stats:

Furl: Around the same time, I started using Furl for bookmarking. I now have:

  • Number of links: 334
  • Number of Topics (Furl’s name for tagging / folksonomies): 78
  • Most viewed links: Yahoo! Webmessenger (116), followed by Men’s Business Attire (77)

Flickr – I also use Flickr for my blog (whenever you see an image in a post of mine, it’s most likely coming from my Flickr account).

  • Number of images: 118 photos
  • Most viewed images: http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidking/13591400/ – It’s a slightly funny Google Maps image (166 views)
  • Number of images marked as Favorites: 6 images marked as favorites…
  • Number of tags: 160

Future plans for this blog: Once I get around to it, I’m going to purchase a domain name, get a web hoster, etc – so I can have my own “place.” Still finalizing domain names in my head… I’ll probably go with some version of my name – much easier than creating some wonderful “blankety blank Librarian” type of name (although “blankety blank librarian” would be kinda funny… ). Plus, there’s that whole self promotion thing… (which, of course, highly rules out the name “blankety blank librarian” … bummer :-)

So, all you fine readers who have actually dropped my RSS feed into your aggregator – stay tuned! When/If I actually do this, I’ll send plenty of warning, along with the new domain/feed URL.

And that’s all for now – it’s been a fun year, and I’m looking forward to even greater fun this year!

    Hey David, I think, since you use feedburner, you should be able to switch the originating RSS feed with them, and those of us who subscribe to the feedburner thing will just come along for the ride. Those subscribing to the blogger ATOM feed will of course need to switch…

    Thanks! I’ll have to remember to move over the feedburner feed, too. That should be able to go somewhere in my Getting Things Done planner…
