Post #100 – A Recap

August 11, 2007, 12:42 am

Post #100. Not bad for a year and three months, however I know many other bloggers hit that number every other month. So, if you’ve been around since the beginning, I thank you for sticking with me. If you are a new reader, thanks for checking this out. And… if you are a random web searcher who stumbled in—sorry to waste your time.

I decided to change the look around a bit— fresh things up. And since this is a milestone, I offer some of my favorite posts. Let’s stroll down memory lane:

You get an ALA book deal and they call you a sellout. Ya gotta love the wannabes and the never-beens.

An epic tale of redemption from the land of facebook.

So there you have. Thanks again for reading.

And oh yeah, Elsevier— I’m still waiting on that check . Maybe you guys should donate it to worthwhile charity instead?
