Woo-hoo! So I began this blog 6 months ago, on Sept. 19, 2011. 🙂 And being the over-sharer that I am, I thought it’d be fun to help celebrate this minor milestone by highlighting some more stats and a few behind-the-scenes bits and oddities. You know, for all those questions your subconscious has never asked.
Most popular searches that result in a hit for my blog:
- Like I noted in my “Naughty Librarians (ladies, take it away)” post, I get a lot of traffic from searches for naughty librarians and the like. No surprise there. But I AM surprised by all the traffic that comes my way via searches for the 2000 librarian flick An Extremely Goofy Movie.
- Note to self: Move the “Do an actual post about college librarian Sylvia Marpole in An Extremely Goofy Movie” from to-do list to “Get it done already OMG” list
- Another note to self: Start a “Get it done already OMG” list
Favorite — and therefore TOTALLY overused! — writing quirks (do they bug or amuse you?):
- Parentheses, dashes, exclamation points, capitalizing random words for emphasis, and smiley emoticons. 😉
Runner-up writing quirk?
- Using a question to set up an easy follow-up answer and transition. Yeah, like I just did there.
My personal favorite posts (so far):
- Comparing two desk sets (and I don’t mean furniture)
- Best librarian films by decade, Part I (1910s – 1950s) & Part II (1960s-2000s)
- A brief encounter with a librarian
- Whaddya mean, you’re a librarian?
- It’s a wonderful… stereotype?
