Placements & Salaries 2010: The Lucky Few

Hello fair readers,

I know.

I know, I know, I know.

It’s been 3 months since I have posted. I have little excuse for such behavior and I will fully admit that this blog may now seem all but dead. But in my own defense, I have been…

busy.

Insane amounts of busy. I have been working at a new library, in a new position and I have found that, low and behold, I am pretty damn good at it. Still, starting a new job is challenging. And that has taken up much of my time. Also I have been pouring my heart and soul into the group that I co-founded with Adam Girard and Anthony Molaro, the Chicago Deskset. And this has been going splendidly.

But! As you can tell from the title, this isn’t exactly the point of the post. For the past few months I have been working very hard on the feature piece for the Salaries & Placements issue of Library Journal. And today, it has appeared in the online format.

I cannot tell you how excited I am about this — it was such an honor to first, be selected by LJ and then two, be able to work with an amazing editor, and three, to have the honor of selecting three incredibly talented librarians to write with. Adam, Karen and Molly, seriously, I know I keep saying this but THANK YOU! I am constantly in awe of my peers and what we are capable of putting out into the world. Your writing brings me to tears and makes me laugh and makes me proud to be a librarian. So yeah. You pretty much rock my world.

Okay, now I will get back into library world. Working my tail off. Writing what I feel. And speaking my mind. I will be back, fair readers. I just don’t know when.

Have a lovely weekend ❤
