This is the Publishing in the Archives Profession’s 500th post! Just seemed like a landmark to acknowledge.
When I started this blog almost four years ago, I wondered if I’d be able to keep it up. My original goal was to post more guidance about writing, and I still hope to get back to that (once I finish my book). But it’s surprised me how many publishing-related announcements there are. I thought those would be occasional, but now I can post something pretty much every weekday (I purposely don’t post on the weekends).
I really enjoy finding these announcements about calls for papers, new publications, awards, and everything else. It is often amazing to me how much is out there related to archives, though I often wonder what else I’m missing. I find these announcements by following dozens of blogs and websites, periodically reviewing journals’ and publishers’ websites, Google alerts, Facebook posts, and listservs. I’m continually adding to these to ensure I find as much as possible to share (and I welcome recommendations!).
Mostly, I’m grateful for all of you! I appreciate everyone who reads and follows this blog. And I’m especially grateful when I hear that you read it and find it useful.
Thank you and I look forward to 500 more!
