An employee of a small town "liberry" chronicles his quest to remain sane while dealing with patrons who could star in a short-lived David Lynch television series.

Year Four in the Can

Today is the fourth anniversary of the beginning of this blog.

Wow. Four years of "liberry" goodness. Who'da thunk it? I figured I would have gotten bored with it long before now, but so far I've not.

Lemme just say, I couldn't have done it without my crazy patrons, so to them I say "Thanks." Their crazy antics and annoying ideosyncracies have given me ample material to cover and recover

Also, I probably wouldn't have kept this blog going without you the audience being there. You're not an enormous crowd by the usual "innanet" standards (meaning, I don't have the kind of numbers most folks would be interested in advertising to) but from the stats I've seen you're a very faithful and regular bunch--and ever-increasing! The numbers have steadily climbed as the years have gone by, which warms me greatly. Even the wife has come around to viewing it as not a complete waste of time, particularly since so many of her coworkers are now fans of it because she can't keep her mouth shut about it no matter how many times I keep telling her this is supposed to be strictly on the Q.T! (But, I'm glad to have them too!)

Suffice it to write, I'm quite happy everyone is here and I hope to keep you on a bit further.

Which brings me to my next point...

Even after four years of this, I'm not yet ready to give up. I've learned a great deal about the blogging game along the way and feel like I've got this machine firmly within my control. There are still implications and secrets yet to be revealed and I'm certain I can keep chunking up quality posts for a while yet... oh, let's say at least the next seven months, or so.

At least.

Could be longer.

We'll all have to wait and see.

Hey Juice! Its Mouse! You know how to get in touch with me, so do it! :D Seriously though, you might consider throwing some google ads on your site. They are unintrusive, free, and easy to set up. Just a thought. Talk to ya soon.

So you're going to quit? Why? Did Mrs. Juice get an offer to transfer to another location?
Did you find something more lucrative? If you do have a new job, are you going to change the name of your site or will your new job be library oriented?

Please keep it going longer than a few more months! Your blog is funny as hell and makes me laugh like a maniac every time I read it.

Hey Juice--
I recently stumbled onto your site and LOVE it! I've been recommending it to a lot of collegues. I think you ought to have a Liberry store! I know I'd buy a Friend of the Liberry shirt! Too Funny!
You rock, keep up the hilarious work.
