For the last little while I’ve been trying to figure out how I can incorporate two passions that I’ve come to realize: 1) my love of books, 2) I’m a librarian – well my paperwork says Library Technician, but honestly, I’m a Jack-of-all-Trades here, so we’ll just call it like it is. I love having my outlet to present my opinions about the books I’ve been reading, not always reviewing but just having the opportunity to be heard by a larger community rather than my closest of friends. It’s great! And I think anybody who has a little bit of time to commit to trying to do something awesome should.
So far I’ve been doing pretty good with the book loving part. One year in operation, I’ve received a lot of support from my near and dear but also from folks of afar. It’s awesome! I’ve made acquaintances with many people and learned much on the book blogging world and its workings.
Now with that little experience under my belt, I’ve begun to want to broaden my options in regards to the content I post on Black ‘n Write. I follow a few other bloggers who have managed to incorporate their library lives in with their book blogging life, and I’d love to do the same thing. Would we talk about the same thing? There’s always a chance, but in the end every library, public, private, or special, all have their own quirk. I’d like to investigate mine. Not only that I’d also like to do a particular feature, like “Best Book of the Week” or “Popular Picks”.. no not really. I’m sure it’d just be a discussion post to open up dialogue considering opinions on school libraries, to ask questions whether you do/did the same thing as “my kids” do, and just overall the what-what and who’s-who. Will this work?
You know what all that means right?
(Kidding! or am I?)
It just means that eventually there will be a few changes around this part of town. The colors are going to change and perhaps a few other things, I’m not quite sure. I’d like the scheme to follow me as I transition from Library Tech to “Great Master Holder” which won’t be for a few years, but that’s okay! I can deal with that.
What do you think guys? Doable? Well, ya, obviously, but how about ideas. Anything to add on or maybe we can brainstorm! How about I ask this:
If you could combine your love of books with your day job what would it look like?
