I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but I’m feeling a bit nostalgic these days. Perhaps it’s reconnecting with old friends on Facebook, reading books that remind me of my grad school days, or watching my kids grow and thinking of my own childhood experiences.
Doesn’t matter…other than I feel in the mood to remember and reflect.
I am carrying this mood over to the Maven. Although I don’t know if this is really the case or just my perception, but I think that the Maven has evolved as I have evolved. My writing style, content, flow, and possibly even readership has changed in the 3.5 years and 283 posts that the Maven has been alive.
So just for fun, here is a look back…a brief retrospective, if you will:
