LIVE JOURNAL IS IN THE MIDST OF SWITCHING ITS GRAPHIC HANDLING PROGRAM AND IT'S NOT LETTING ME UPLOAD THE PICS ...
I'LL FIX THIS AS SOON AS THEY GET THE NEW THING IN PLACE!
So, if you're coming to this later you may see seven different thumbnail images above, if you're coming to this sooner, you're seeing seven of the same image ... which was all I was able to upload before LiveJournal went wonky on me. I guess when they say "early May", they mean VERY early May (after all, it's already May in Moscow, isn't it?), so I can just hope that they scheduled "ancient" accounts like mine (I was, after all, one of the first 3,000 users here!) for the first to get the new system, and it will be functional soon. Needless to say, I'll get the various thumbnails uploaded and coded in as soon as I can!
The links, however, associated with those thumbnails, DO point off the the actual posts they're supposed to, and since I really need to get a post up tonight (it would really suck to get to the last day of a NaBloPoMo month and not get that last entry up!), I figured I'd just make do with what I could on this.
As you can see, however April was a far more active month than I've had over on The Job Stalker in a long time, with seven posts. These are, predictably, pretty much split between book features and link dumps. Ever since Gordon Dymowski stated taking the Wednesday spot, I've done a book feature on Monday (if I had a book appropriate to discuss there), and the links on Friday (or soon after).
Anyway, here's how they break down:
As always, I'd appreciate clicky-clicky so that I can see the numbers go up in both the daily Chicago Now reports, and in Bit.ly! It makes the effort put forth in all this feel just a bit less pointless if I can see that some folks are bothering to read what I've cranked out.04/02/2012 - a look at Rubies In The Orchard
04/07/2012 - talking about "pro bono" work, plus a "link dump"
04/09/2012 - a look at Six Tires, No Plan
04/16/2012 - a look at Résumé 101
04/21/2012 - some navel-gazing on the need for just ONE job, plus a "link dump"
04/23/2012 - plugging Scott Ginsberg's making his first 13 books available for free
04/29/2012 - a bit of "tap dancing", plus a "link dump"
And, as noted ... this does complete yet another NaBloPoMo ... and clears my entire backlog of The Job Stalker posts to push on folks over here! I had hoped (following the "theme" of POEM for the month's challenge) to have gotten all of my The Terminal Journal issues scanned and posted, but fell a bit short on that. I mean, I did get five of the seven years done, but you're going to have to wait a while for me to get that finished up (it takes me a couple of hours per issue to get it scanned, organized, output to .pdf, synced into DropBox, and set up over on my Ning site ... after four of which I'm then able to do a screen grab, and dump that graphic in here for a link back to the set in question - so each of those posts represented about 8 hours of work on my part!).
Again, hopefully LiveJournal will get this switch-over to the new "scrapbook" program finished soon and I'll be able to get the other thumbnails up in this post!
