I retired from a very fulfilling 25-year career with the Tulsa Police Department . . . how time flies! But I didn’t really retire (I’m much too young). I’m now more than a year-and-a-half into my new career (librarianship) and having a great time. Transitions are never easy, but you just have to “stay the course” and everything will work out (usually for the best).
Two years ago, if you would have asked me, I would have had to admit that I had no idea what a blog was (nor many of the other Web 2.0 technologies that we take for granted today). Now, not only do I have a personal blog (as well as a faculty webpage), but I also contribute to two separate blogs at work and post my comments on numerous others. Just this week my personal blog topped the 10,000th view/visitor mark . . . who’d have thunk? I’m also utilizing wikis on a regular basis (at work as well as through my professional association) and many of the other Web 2.0 tools.
I’ve smoothly transitioned into Academia and I’m having a blast!
If you are reading this, you’ve found my blog . . . here’s a link to my web page http://arapaho.nsuok.edu/%7Erink/ (if you haven’t already stumbled acrossed it).
