Another Blog?

No way! I'm not ready for this to be my main blogging resource, though I see in some forums that there are those who are ready for this to be their primary blogging tool. I have other blogs that I can point to, and they are at:

  • Scasl Blogs! The South Carolina Association of School Librarians sponsor a blog, and I am lucky enough to be a contributor. I wish i could say it is as popular as Sunlink, or some other state association…

Greetings Cathy,


I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit.

We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Cathy

I went over to the NECC conference in San Antonio with the group from Australia, and I was totally inspired by what I learned at the Library 2.5 session. Well done!

I found one of your slideshows on SlideShare - one on RSS feeds - and I'm wondering if you'd mind if I refer to it at our school library conference in September? I have to take a session on RSS feeds and social bookmarking, and some of your slides were great.

Don't you love Photobucket's easy slide shows? I use it on my ...gulp...annual holiday update each Christmas. I mainly just post at that time of the year and slap a little sticker on the Christmas cards I send out for folks to visit the blog and catch up on our year. Unfortunately, when I ask people if they looked at it they mostly look puzzled (only 1 post in 3 years.) But, I'll keep at it. Eventually they'll catch on.

Hi Cathy,

Sorry I missed you at UTC. This was my first time attending and I really enjoyed it. Read your blog this morning and it sounds like you have a busy summer!

Hello Cathy,

Thanks for inviting me as one of your friends. I see South Carolina is your home also. Beautiful country, isn't it? You have so many terrific ideas!
I need to get busy with reading them so I can learn more great, new ideas.
