Demonstrating the value of librarianship

2014 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.  Not much to brag about, but nice to see, and a few things to think about.  I’m pleased that the visitors came from over 40 countries – of course, I’m not sure if these were actual readers, or robots or other automated visits.  I wish my stories generated more comments – I really like starting conversations and seeing where they go.  I try hard to ensure that my blog doesn’t simply pass on news stories that are available through a dozen other sources, nor that I focus too much on myself or my own experiences.  So the volume is not very large, but the level of thought I put into most posts is.  Despite what appears to be only modest success, this blog provides me with a venue to project my ideas, reflect on the often conflicting and confusing information, and generate knowledge for the betterment of my profession.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 28 trips to carry that many people.

    You’ll be pleased to know that WordPress.com attempts to filter about search-engine crawlers, so your stats should exclude those. But it won’t exclude little-known search engines or any rogue bots that don’t identify themselves.
