Greetings readers. I was looking over my blog over the weekend and realized that I've posted a whopping three times in September. One was a left over from the Ticer Institute in August, and only one of the other two was of any substance. I keep meaning to get back in the groove and post, but the new job and life in general keep getting in the way. I don't find myself motivated to post or go back to ideas I have and actually write about them. And I don't see that changing much in the next little while.
So I think it is time to pull the plug on the random stuff, at least temporarily. I'm obviously not going to contribute anything else of meaning to the library blog world anytime soon, if I ever did to start with, and there is no point in pretending that I'll get around to blogging more. Being out of the loop of the day to day library world has changed the things that I think about, both work- and library-wise. And the desire to write about them isn't there anymore. This is all my personal decision, so please don't read any more into it than that. There is absolutely no outside influence on my stopping blogging.
And shrinking my online presence really isn't necessarily a bad thing right now. I'll still be on Facebook if you want to play Scrabble, and will definitely keep posting pics on Flickr. And maybe writing more blog-like descriptions of photos.
Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to try blogging. And to all of you who have been reading. Or at least keeping me in your aggregator. If you see me at any of the myriad of ALA/ ACRL events, please come up and say hello.
