Managing…. Me?

This post originally appeared at Librarian in Progress as part of an assignment for class.

It’s amazing to me how quickly time has flown but at the same time how slowly it’s gone by, if that makes any sense. It seems like we just started this course, but also like it’s been a lot longer than three months since I got here.

As far as writing this blog goes, I’ve had a blog for over three years now, so I’m used to this kind of platform. My writing style and voice haven’t really changed in this because I have an established voice already. If you look back at the beginning of Ever-Present Wanderlust, though, there is a marked difference in my writing. I’ve grown a lot since I first started my blog and, it might be hard for the readers to tell, I’ve grown a lot since I started this writing exercise, too. When I read back over the posts on both blogs, I can more readily remember who I was then and fondly think of how much has changed since then. I’m older, yes, but my heart is a lot stronger and my faith in myself and others is, too.

Doing this management series of posts makes me like the regular update format, so in the upcoming holiday and term, I’m going to try to go for a bi-monthly update. Once a week is a little too much if I feel like nothing of note has happened, but I think twice a month will give me a good stretch of time to talk about. I’d also like to start adding projects I’m particularly proud of to my portfolio, like the ones I did while working at the Molly Brown House Museum and the presentations I made while teaching. Maybe even some projects I’ve worked on while doing my undergrad and my masters. Probably less of the undergrad because I mostly wrote papers, but you get the idea.

Big thanks to Jane Burns for such a fantastic class. (I’m seriously not just saying this, it was my favorite. Am I allowed to say that? It’s my blog I do what I want! It was my favorite!!)
