The challenge that is #blogjune

You just can’t count on things to go according to plan. But that doesn’t negate the need to have one, at least in the form of a rough draft, in almost every area of our lives. #blogjune this year is no exception. This will be my second time participating in...

Don’t take it personally

I’m sure the participants, Matthias and I could have chatted well into the afternoon at our workshop at the New Librarians Symposium last month about building and managing a professional identity. I would have happily done so. Of course, we couldn’t cover everything in three hours, but there is something...

A “slash career”

Just days after I posted my thoughts about the lack of definition the information profession tends to have in the eyes of those …..well, not in the profession, I came across this recent post from the The Bamboo Project that has calmed my nerves a bit. I am one of...

Never say never

This is an exciting time for my career. Inspiration is coming from all sides. Never say never. It’s about time I shared my new(ish) role in archives, an area I never thought I’d work or be involved in. But I am determined to make the most of being challenged, stretched,...

A Year of Flight Path

Looking back at my first year of blogging, I’ll say that I don’t think I did too badly. Flight Path has become a very useful tool for me to reflect, make sense of concepts and articulate my view on a few things and my thought processes. According to the site...

May I have this dance?

My recent brazilian dance classes led me to participate in a dance party about a week ago. I arrived home near midnight and with thoughts abuzzing, I seized the moment as best I could. I’ve finally come back to these thoughts, with an attempt to tidy up and publish this...
