March 18 marks seven years since I started All About Work. It doesn’t seem that long ago, but I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun.
On every anniversary, I compile a list of the five blog posts that have received the most hits ever on All About Work. The list hasn’t changed significantly over time, but it’s nice to see that people are still finding and enjoying these posts.
Thanks to everyone who reads, posts, and comments! I appreciate the support.

2) Malcolm Gladwell’s “10,000 Hour Rule” Doesn’t Add Up
3) Population Ecology Theory in Real Life: How the Globe and Mail Misunderstood Its Environment
4) Bob White and ‘Final Offer’
5) Why Academic Freedom Is Important to Everyone (Not Just Academics)
Thanks to everyone who read and/or commented on posts this year! See you in 2019!

I’m very pleased to announce that my summer project is complete! My new book, Song Book: 21 Songs from 10 Years (1964-74), will be released by New Haven Publishing on November 28. It can be purchased on Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble in the US, and Indigo in Canada, all of which which will ship worldwide.
I’ll be posting updates and news about the book on Facebook and on my other blog. There’s also a YouTube channel for the book, featuring playlists of the songs that are discussed in the book, along with a promotional video.
I hope you’ll check it out!
The end of my university’s academic year is approaching, and I’ve undertaken a project (which I can’t discuss at the moment) that is going to fill a lot of my time during the summer. So….All About Work is taking a bit of a blogcation.
If I do post at all in the next little while, it will be on a very irregular basis. However, I will pop in regularly to make sure that everything is still functional. And I can still be reached through the Contact page on the blog, or on Twitter.
Thank you, regular and occasional readers, and see you soon!
