Inside 100 Scope Notes

100 Scope Notes Turns 12

Twelve years ago this week, I started 100 Scope Notes. In 2007 there was a growing online children’s literature community and I wanted to join in the fun. Since then I’ve published almost 3000 posts, going from a WordPress.com blog, to a self-hosted blog, to our current location – hosted by School Library Journal. Writing here has brought so many good things and people into my life.

I am completely grateful.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for reading.
