Happy Birthday, Blog
I missed my own blogoversary yesterday...My first post on (a)musings of a grad student was on July 27, 2002. Three years later I'm still going strong.
I only started the blog because I thought it would be neat and fun. Unlike other bloggers, I didn't have a specific purpose in mind. I just figured I would post when I read something or thought of something interesting. This is my 181st post, incidentally.
Most of the hits to this weblog come from people googling me by name (although they might be looking for other Rebecca Goetzes) and from people who are looking for squirrel repellent. People spend a lot of time reading this post. It's so good to know this blog is making a difference in the lives and deaths of rodents everywhere. Occasionally I get hits from people searching for bestiality, because I made this politically-minded anti-William Pryor post here.
I like blogging and I plan on sticking with it. In the coming year I'll be able to post a little bit about my job search. It seems I am on the job market; the history department has given me a job placement web page.
And, if I may also point out, the Charlotte W. Newcombe Dissertation Fellowship in Religious and Ethical Values has posted a list of its 2005-2006 Fellows. There are six historians in the mix and all the projects sound interesting.
