Blog Check

One of my favourite things about the stats package that comes with this blog is seeing who is linking to me (and therefore where my hits are coming from. 

For example, I got a ton of hits for my “12 Types of Library School Students” entry (three times as many as anything I've written in the last month) after it made the rounds of LiveJournal and also got posted to a couple book/library message boards.  (I think LiveJournal has some automated feed of what your friends are reading so once somebody posted this entry, it continued to snowball.)

The incoming links page is how I often discover new blogs as well – the most recent being The Ontarian Librarian by FIMS student Jess O. 

I've added her to my Blog Roll
over there somewhere. 

I thought this might be a good time to check – if you're somebody who is attending or who has attended FIMS and/or somebody I know in “real” life and I either don't know about your blog or have forgotten to add it to my blog roll (when I see new blogs, I usually boomark them, add them to my feed reader and add them to my blog roll so I sometimes forget one or more of these steps), e-mail me or post a comment with the URL and I'll add it. 

Jess also posted an awesome ad from Calgary Public Library.  CPL currently has three job postings and, other than my minor issue with the fact that Alberta libraries charge an annual fee for library cards, I would highly recommend anyone who hasn't considered the west as a place to apply to send a resume to CPL.  They've got a great system and some of the most amazing librarians I've met in my life.

    Thanks for the shout-out! Alas, I must admit that I cannot take credit for finding the library ad, since Martha sent it to the management class from this term.
    Will you be creating a lovely video ad for your library now? 😉

    No worries – hopefully I can send some traffic your way.
    No plans to do a video for the library right now but who knows?
