2007 Survey of the Biblioblogosphere

An annual survey provides a snapshot of the world of library bloggersI don't think I filled this out when the call for responses went out so here are my responses:

1. Male
2. 31-40 years old
3. Western Canada  (survey methodology – she lists “Eastern, Western and Middle of” as choices for Canada.  I know there are readers out there who will swear up and down I live in the middle of Canada but I personally consider myself a western Canadian.)
4. Live in small urban area (again, no definitions provided so it's up to the respondent's interpretation)
5. Have my MLIS
6. Don't have any other advanced degree
7. Received MLIS between 31-40
8. Work in a medium public library serving 40 000-99 000 (although this is misleading because this is the sum total of the population I serve.  In reality, my largest branch is ~3000 people.)
9. Nothing they listed really fits what I do as my “job” as I do a whole range of things from collection development to building inspections to government advocacy. “Management” would probably be the best umbrella term for everything I do I guess.
10. Have been working less than one year
11. Yes, I am the direct supervisor of others.

    (You knew I was going to say that, didn't you? Heh.)
    Um, unrelated to anything in particular – I thought I'd mention that the feed to this blog seems to've stopped working (never updates) in Bloglines. I haven't gotten around to trying it in a different reader to see if it's a Bloglines-only problem, or a problem with the feed itself, but I did try deleting it and putting it back into my account there, and no dice. Hmm, I just threw it into Gmail and it seems to work there. Must be Bloglines acting screwy. Odd.
