Scope Notes and the Family Meeting
I’ve called you all into the living room to make an announcement. I’ll soon be packing up all my digital worldly possessions (except maybe my photos of the creepy library statues) and setting up shop in the virtual confines of the School Library Journal website.
This blog is moving, folks. In a matter of days. What does this mean?
I made a pie chart showing how this blog will change once things get rolling at SLJ:
As you can see, I’ll just keep doing what I like to do. While I call it “being slightly lazy”, the SLJ folks call it editorial freedom. Either way, it’s a beautiful thing. Having seen blogs A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy and A Fuse #8 Production make the move to SLJ looking none the worse for wear, I’m hopeful I’ll be able to do the same.
So this will be my last post until the new site is up and running, which should be a done deal by the end of the week or so. Any new comments may get lost in the internet ether as the site is switching over, so if something disappears, that’s the likely cause.
I’m told the url and RSS feed should all work as they do now, with everything redirecting automatically to the new site.
Now, if I could just find that box of catalog cards, I’d have everything packed up. I know it’s around here somewhere. There it is.
See you soon.
