If you’ve come to the blog this week you’ll have noticed it has a new look and feel. Not its first.
This blog started in January 2004. Everyone was doing it. This is a time before Twitter and Facebook, and a time when you had to explain just what RSS was (not always that easy a task) and why it wasn’t pointless. The site began life as a daily blog (on blogger back then) about legal librarianship and telecoms and IT law. I blogged daily, often multiple times a day. It was fun. It also made me a trusted resource, and expert in Legal librarianship.
Since those days it has morphed several times to adapt to the times and my interests. My blogging (if we can still call it that) is less frequent these days, but my current topics of interest, or at least the ones I’m likely to add new content to going forward, are listed in the menu, for ease of access – rather than the need to click on categories (though you can still do this at the bottom of the page). Indeed, I have stated to re-do the categorise the blog’s content to make it make more sense. Not a quick or easy task. There are over 3,500 posts.
The idea of additional ‘tagging’ didn’t exist when this blog started so many posts essentially have what should be tags as categories. So, I am attempting to rectify this. To para-phrase Capt Oats, I may be some time…
But, were this news not enough excitement for one day, I have also launched a totally new website today – a home page for me – Scott Vine, which brings together where to find all the multiple personalities I have online.
[And to head off the question you’ll all be asking when you’ve looked at it – Yes it is, and Yes I thought I looked damn cool at the time].
So, hope you like the new InformationOverlord and the new Scott Vine site too. Now, bring on the weekend.
