They Sure Do Grow Up Fast

Today marks the 4th anniversary of The Misadventures Of Super Librarian. Time sure does fly when you won't keep your mouth shut for 5 minutes.

When I started this blog I had no clear idea of what I would talk about. Basically I saw it as a way to babble, and it was so much easier to update and archive than a traditional web site (I'm HTML stupid). It's quick, it's easy, and hey with Blogger it's free! And outside of this template I purchased last year, I've been running this bad boy for free for the last 4 years. OK, so my time is money, but that probably isn't worth a whole lot.

The Boyfriend stumbled across my blog the other day. He was bored and Googled me - which means I guess I better not start having any torrid online affairs. Anyway his exact words were, "I had no idea you were so into this stuff, how come you never showed me?" I suspect he was offended. I told him I figured it wouldn't interest him, given that 1) he hears all my library stories first hand 2) he's not a reader and 3) if he was a reader the last thing he would read are romance novels. We have very divergent personalities, which makes us a good couple (we even each other out), but it also means that my babbling about work or books can cause his eyes to glaze over. The trick is to babble about these subjects in small doses.

Of course this means I need to babble at length somewhere else, hence this blog. Four years and going strong. Today one small corner of cyberspace, tomorrow Queen Librarian Of The Universe. I'm still waiting for my tiara people.

If anybody deserves to be Queen Librarian Of The Universe, it’s you. Where else can a person go to get recommendations for Westerns and Erotica, all in the same place?

Your Majesty, may I present the royal tiara:
