Howdy! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’m still plowing through library school and two jobs and being tired almost all the time, but I DO still want to blog– although probably not in the same way I’ve blogged for the past seven years.
Yes, y’all, it’s my 7th blogoversary this month! I’ve gone from starting on WordPress.com under an entirely different name during a boring undergrad semester to being self-hosted today during a not-boring, super hectic grad school semester. That’s 1,905 posts, 7,919 comments, and about 1400 books read!
I may not have the energy for long, individual book reviews nowadays, and I may not even be reading for fun much, but I AM doing interesting things with books and libraries and readers and I still like blogging. So I’m gonna stick with it!
Right now the plan is trying for monthly(ish) round-up posts for books I’ve read, plus other book-related posts whenever I come up with them. Next semester I’m also taking one less class, so hopefully I won’t be AS tired and will maybe even feel like typing up for-fun posts, too! Yay!
Thanks so much for sticking with me these past 7 years, and I hope you’ll stick with me for the future however-many years, too. I miss talking with y’all, so if you ever want to chat about books or life or whatever, please leave a comment, or tweet me, or even email!
For now: what’s a great book you’ve read recently? Mine’s Newt’s Emerald, Garth Nix’s fantasy love letter to Georgette Heyer’s romances. It’s basically exactly what you’d expect, except with pirates!
