Update on Status

There was a dramatic drop off in the volume of my blog posts recently. Much is related to the changes in my life.

In July, my job in Eau Claire ended. I spent the summer and fall looking for a new position. I also spent the time geographically relocating "down river" to New Orleans. On December 1, I started a new position. I am now a library consultant for the State Library of Louisiana. Part of my job is to serve as the State Data Coordinator.

I did have a personal revelation recently. When I started blogging, I was in a rut in my life. I was not particularly unhappy, but certainly not happy. More recently, I am much happier, and much busier. My personal time is taken up "doing things." I have a life outside the internet!

Working for a state library agency is interesting. I have gained a great deal of insight into why some things happened the way that they did in the two previous states I was a library director in. I am no longer a manager. There is a part of me that is very happy about that. My job pretty much begins when I walk into the office and ends when I walk out. (Except for conferences and when I am -- eventually -- on the road.)

So, don't expect as many postings as in the past. There will be less work-related. There will also be no political stuff....That is another post.
