While en route to New York last week, I read my latest copy of Booklist. (Yes, I am that much of a library geek – I research my future reading.) Bill Ott’s column is always entertaining, and I enjoyed his take on “self-Googling.” I hadn’t done so in years – likely before my daughter was born.
So, having a moment today, as I recovered from the trip and while waiting for the aforementioned book choices to upload into my book database, I Googled myself.
Surprise!!! I had a publication credit I’d completely forgotten about – an article published in Information Outlook, SLA’s professional journal, in 2000. Whaddaya know? as my new Brooklyn friends would say.
Now the question is do I list it in my author bio along with the book of Italian essays I translated for a friend of a friend? Do I include my stint as a teen columnist for the local paper in high school?
Seems I have more experience writing than I thought…
