Two Year Anniversary!

Today marks the second anniversary of Amy’s Scrap Bag.  Over the last year, I have written about a variety of library, archive, and history topics including but not limited to:

  • Library Programming (five posts on this!)
  • Information and Digital Literacies
  • Archival Preservation
  • Ethical Conundrums
  • Technology
  • European and Military History
  • My past library and archive experiences/projects
  • And much more…

I also started writing book reviews, most for books I obtained galleys or review copies of ahead of or near the time of publication.  Others were classics, modern classics, or new releases I thought I would share.

To celebrate, here are some data and statistics from the past year:

Over this year, the view of Amy’s Scrap Bag have increased to an average of 600-650 views per month.  And after dropping to posting every other week mid-April, I still maintained that average.  As was the case last year, my hope is to keep up this variety and see what the next year brings.

If you have any suggested topics or guest post ideas, please let me know.  I’m willing to listen.
