Eight Years . . . and Counting!

June 24, 2016

Happy Friday, and Happy Anniversary!  Eight years ago today I started blogging and began my journey with The Gun-Carryin’ Librarian.  This endeavor began as a learning opportunity when I undertook the Special Libraries Association’s “23 Things” self-paced course of study.  I had no idea what blogging was and was quite behind the curve on all things Web 2.0.  And, while I am still not an early adopter when it comes to new things/technology, I’m not completely afraid to try them either (thanks to SLA’s 23 Things).

Over the past eight years, I’ve managed . . .

  • more than 3,080 posts
  • more than 255,000 views
  • more than 39,100 visitors

My most popular date — June 14, 2012 (1,091 views).
My most popular day of the week — Thursdays (18% of views).
My most popular hour of the day — 5:00 PM (8% of views).
