Starting fresh...

Okay, time for a fresh start. I've been wanting to get back into the whole blogging thing for quite a while now, but haven't had time up to now to do so. Thanks to a new baby, work, and other stuff, I just hadn't had the time to update as often as I'd like. But hopefully, now I can change that. This is a pretty easy forum to get to, post to, and edit. And best of all, it's free! Ya gotta love LISNews!

Okay to start, here's a little background info on me, then we'll progress into what I think I wanna try and do with my blog here.

First off, I'm the Assistant Circulation Manager for the Yakima Valley Regional Library. I'm heavily involved in the webpage committe and we're attempting a total redesign of the website. I'm one of the lead coders on the project. I'm pretty fluent in HTML and CSS and I can fake my way through some JavaScripting and PHP. I'm currently finishing my BA in History and hope to go straight from that into my MLIS. My interests lie in library web design, web delivered information, and circulation. I'm a computer geek, and I'm working on building my own system. I'm a digital artist, a musician, and writer. If you don't mind heavy language and images, you can check my personal website out over at Dragon in the Basement.

I hope to do many things with this blog. First it will be a fairly personal blog. I'll post thoughts and musings here, both within and without of the library scope. I intend to use this page for updates to websites that I work on. I'll use it for relaying information that I think useful or useless, whichever is more interesting at the time.

I'm hoping I can convince some of the people I work with to check this out from time to time as I'll probably post things here that might interest them and they may want to comment on it.

Right? Good. Let's get started, I guess.


Cool. A computer geek with a history degree.Did you have any concentration on a specific area of history? When I got my BA in history, I wound up with most of my classes split between 20th Century Europe (especially leading to Nazism's rise and WWII) and Mideast history.Good luck with your journal!

Sounds like yours will be a very interesting blog. Welcome.

Glad to see you back, GWD. Congrats on the new baby!
