Blog hibernation

I must apologise for not updating my blog in such a long time, but I hope you will understand that I have had good reason not to. Neil Infield mentioned earlier this week that there was nothing worse than a dead blog and I want to show that my blog merely went in to hibernation and did not, in fact, die.

My pet tortoise Merry, who is a frequent hibernator

So the reasons behind my blog going in to hibernation in the height of summer:

  1. I secured my first professional role as an Information officer at Trowers & Hamlins law firm, and began working full time in July.
  2. As a result of winning the SLA Europe’s Early Career Conference Award for the Legal Division I went to the SLA annual conference in Chicago and, being my first trip to the USA, I also went to New York for a holiday (who wouldn’t?).
  3. I had to write my dissertation on open access to complete my MA in Library and Information Studies from UCL (still waiting for my results so fingers crossed!).

Now despite these factors causing a hibernated blog, they will undoubtedly inspire the content of many, many months’ worth of blog posts to come. I hardly know where to start! So I think I will just work my way backwards through all that I have been doing, learning, and thinking about – so be warned, you may not be getting posts on CILIPs New Professionals Day back in May until 2013!
