Back on March 4, 2005, I wrote my first post to The DIGITAL Archive blog, which detailed the McGill University Archives project called digitalpermanence. I cannot believe that time--blog time, shall we say--has passed so quickly.
Today as I write this post, we are April 5, 2007. That means on March 4, 2007, The DIGITAL Archive blog turned 2 years old. Unbelievable. I didn't think I would maintain such a long connection with this blog.
As I scrolled through the months and number of posts, and stopped at some which caught me, I saw where a blog such as mine--a few external links, lots of observations, work-related or otherwise--becomes a diary or online journal, a history of my life that I choose to commit to Blogger and share with the public. The blog entries reveal memories and worries and thoughts and plans all in the context of that single moment.
The time I started to chronicle the progress of a project; the time I resigned from McGill; the time I found a web design job following my resignation; the time when I accepted a contract in Washington, DC. And my on-going 'adventures' in the U.S. capital.
