mamamusings turned three years old on October 23rd. Thanks to Jim McGee (who shares the date, but not the year) for reminding me!
Has it really only been three years? How is that possible?
Starting a blog has been the most influential professional act I've ever taken. Because of my blog I'm here at Microsoft, enjoying a dream sabbatical. I'm giving keynotes at conferences like Internet Librarian. I've built a professional network that literally spans the globe. I've built a network of new friends, also spanning the globe. I've been able to leverage this online presence into so many real-world opportunities and connections that I'm embarrassed to list them all here.
Thank you so much to all of you who've read this blog, commented on it, linked to it, challenged me on it. You've helped to change my life, and my gratitude is boundless.
(And with that, I'm hereby declaring a brief moratorium on meta-blogging posts. When your "on blogging" category is the largest one in your archives, you're probably doing way too much navel-gazing.)
