Reel Librarians celebrates its 8th blog anniversary next week! I published my first post on Reel Librarians back on September 19th, 2011, with the “Where do I begin? A love story.” post, which also details how my interest in reel librarians began.
This year has definitely been one for unexpected journeys. I put Reel Librarians on a “private” mode hiatus for four months, from Dec. 2018 through March 2019. During that (unforeseen but necessary) downtime, I updated lots of things on the site, which you can read all about here in this April 1, 2019 post. I also announced a new bimonthly posting schedule, with new posts going live on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.
I still feel like I’m in a rebuilding mode for Reel Librarians, but “slow and steady” has always been my personal preference. 🙂 Looking back over the previous “blog anniversary” posts, linked below, here is an update on how this blog has grown over the years.
